SO I am at the Doctors. Office today.
I like my Doc. He's older, wise, doesn't preach, and is genuinely concerned about my health. He gives advice, but not to the point of preaching at me when he knows I am not gonna follow it. ("Stop drinking cheap whiskey!", etc)
So, in addition to the multitude of tests that I am about to undergo, he wants to discuss diet...
Asks me how healthy of a diet I eat..
"Well, doc, I'm not eating handfuls of lard and salt, but I could, of course, eat better"....(I actually eat a fairly decent diet, but only fairly...it could be better)
"Are you getting enough vegetables and fruits?"
Well, I could eat more fruit, but I have vegetables every day....in fact, every morning!"
"Yessir: Beans every morning"
"Yep. 2, sometimes 3 cups"
"Coffee isn't a vegetable."
"By my book it is, Doc.
Coffee is a bean, beans are vegetables. Coffee is made from ground beans....ergo, coffee is a vegetable."
He didn't buy it. More broccoli and such for B.
He also didn't buy the argument that vegetables are what food eats....
