What Kind of Vegetable Am I?
Sometimes I feel like I’m a mystery, even to myself. Am I a good person? Am I ready to make tough decisions if necessary? Even more puzzling is the question of what kind of vegetable I am.
The Many Variations of Vegetables
Vegetables come in many shapes, sizes, and colors. Some vegetables are typically eaten raw, while others are often cooked before serving. Here are some of the major vegetable categories:
- Fruits: Apples, oranges, bananas, etc.
- Grains: Wheat, oats, barley, rye, etc.
- Legumes: Peas, beans, lentils, etc.
- Leafy Greens: Lettuce, spinach, kale, etc.
- Root Vegetables: Carrots, potatoes, onions, etc.
- Squash: Summer squash, winter squash, etc.
Do I Fit Into Any of These Categories?
When I think of all the different vegetables out there, I’m not sure which category I would fit into. In some ways, I feel like a blend between fruits and grains because I’m complex and have many layers. On the other hand, I might be more like root vegetables because I can be unassuming and tough to get to know.
Figuring Out What Kind of Vegetable I Am
To figure out what kind of vegetable I truly am, I need to look inside myself and analyze my traits. Do I have a sweet and juicy interior like a fruit, or am I hearty and wholesome like a root vegetable? After I answer that question, I can better decide what kind of vegetable I am.
In the end, it’s not important to define myself as one type of vegetable if that’s not possible. I can embrace my uniqueness and honor the fact that I have traits that don’t fit into any single category. That’s what makes me the veggie I am.
