Mine would be grapes and broccoli. Eggplant would come very close. I remember when I was a kid I used to cry when my mom would refuse to buy grapes for me because they were expensive. She told me to eat apples instead.

Varies with the season. Right now I'm all about cherries and asparagus, but strawberries are up there too. By high summer that will shift to tomatoes and peaches. Come fall, butternut squash and satsuma mandarins. In winter, blood oranges and sweet potatoes.

Mine also shift with the seasons. In general favorite fruit is pineapple (really ripe, sweet and juicy) and vegetable is sweet potatoes.


Happily married to DH for 6 years, in process to foster-adopt 3 children DD4, DS3 and DS2. We may be bringing half brother age 9 one day as well! We are not infertile, we just have decided that since there are precious children who need homes there is no need for us to have biological children.

I can't say that I have a favorite all the time either. I love tomatoes, beets, arugala, carrots, pears & grapefruit but I tend to go through spurts where I eat some more than others.

It varies. I go crazy on a certain fruit or veggie for months and then switch.

Right now, I'm on blueberries. Before that it was tangerines.

My fav veg is pretty steady with greens. Right now, it's kale.

My all time favorite vegetable is Asparagus.....especialy when it is drizzled with olive oil, salt & pepper, and flash bake on high heat!  Mmmm brings out the subtle sweetness & nuttiness and it is still crunchy.  :-d

  Most favorite fruit...... ....I love all kinds of fruit so that would really depend on the season.  Since we are in summer, I love my watermelons.
