Fruits and Vegetables
It is common knowledge that both fruits and vegetables provide generally healthy benefits for you and me. Both are always present in any diet plan aimed for healthy living.
Aside from the fact they are both parts of plants, what are the other similarities shared by the two? And incidentally, are there any significant differences between fruits and vegetables?
Both share the distinction of coming from plants and both provide nutrition and health benefits if consumed. Some fruits are even classified as vegetables at the same time. However, there are also differences between the two. Basing on taste, fruits generally have a sweet or tart flavor profile that can come quite handy for desserts, juices, and snacks. Vegetables on the other hand are eaten as part of a dish or main course because of the mild and savory taste they have.
