So I eat a lot of meat and vegetables. The steak is kind of like an icon for meat in my mind, even though I eat a heck of a lot more than just steak. I can't put a finger on vegetables though... kale? broccoli? carrots? I don't know. What vegetable is your icon for vegetables?
Broccoli is the vegetable mascot, whereas Kale is the brains behind the operation.
Broccoli is my iconic vegetable. I know kale is more nutritious, and I do love it, but broccoli is the one vegetable I could eat pretty much every single day and never get sick of it. A medium rare rib-eye steak and steamed broccoli with butter is one meal I'll always be in the mood for.
Is eggs a vegetable? I vote eggs. http://high-fat-nutrition.blogspot.com/2012/03/fruit-and-vegetables.html
"What vegetable defines vegetables for you?"
I mean leafy greens, carrots and broccoli come as a side salad at most restaurants as a promissory note that the REAL food will soon arrive...but it's free, as in, has no worth...but when you get your steak and there's that beautifully shaped dollop of cloud white potato with its seductive pad of butter melting its way into that whipped silky delight… AND our hearts, I sometimes have trouble deciding which feast for the eyes I'll devour first...
Also, think of Belushi’s example of a zit from Animal House, would his impression of a pimple be anywhere as iconic done with the demon weed known only as, broccoli? I think NOT.
