    Going to get a lot of flak for this, but I think apples and grapes are more unhealthy than they are healthy

    I'm sure there are better options regarding fruit 'health' wise - am curious what makes you think apples and grapes are 'unhealthy'?

    I rarely even eat fruit - just not my thing. I actually prefer vegetables for sure😉

    I think it depends but over all for me grapes are ok if it's maybe 4 or 5. Apples I think are ok if they don't upset your stomach. It is really relative though for each person and where they are. I used to eat a ton of apples when I was much younger and a marathon runner but now I feel sick if I eat a whole apple.

    I think that any meat consumed by average American is more detrimental and unhealthy because we are not the same as our ancestors plus the animals are much differently raised
    . Don't get me started on factory farms...

    On that note...

    I really dislike crunchy raw apples. I don't hate them, but would never have them unless there was absolutely nothing else to eat. I only like them cooked.

    I just think the amount of sugar in apples, grapes, mangos, pineapple, etc. is just a little much... even if they do have fiber :#

    Ha....I'm the complete opposite for sure! The only apple I'd ever consume HAS to be very very crunchy....and I absolutely hate cooked apple 'anything' (bla to apple pie/baked apples, etc., ) Oh my...we're all so different! Love it🤣

    Yes we are different. I love raw apples, baked apples, “fried” apples. But applesauce is one of those foods I refuse to eat. Ever.

    I'm in the middle -- I like both crunchy raw apples (raw ones must be crunchy), but I also like them cooked (both in apple pie or other dessert format or as a side dish with something like a pork chop (with onions and sauerkraut).

    Black licorice is terrible. You can have all of mine!

    Local, in-season strawberries are wonderful. I am once again trying to grow my own, but I love going to the farmer's market and trying all the different varieties, although this year you can't really do that. I will buy various different ones, though.

    You can get all the protein a body needs without eating animals. I am putting this out there, even though I am NOT vegetarian.
    Here we go! Everyone pile on now!

    I wouldn't expect anyone to pile on. Most people here would agree with that.

    "Chocolatey" on a food product's front label is a sign that it's likely to be sub-standard in tastiness.

    Also, anything with "melty cheese".

    I hate how when I say I barely eat meat my family are all “but where do you get your protein”!? I get over 70g of vegan protein a day easily!
