Inspired by the "how do know" series of questions about other Hubbers, I couldn't resist asking the vegetable question. (I considered making it a question about root canals, athlete's foot, or washing hands after using a rest room; but I thought a question about healthy dietary habits might be more appropriate.)
By asking him in good faith and expect him to tell the truth. Have I won anything?
Define vegetables! I would answer sweet potatoes, raw peas, and cherry tomatoes. But sweet potatoes are tubers. Peas are legumes?
Tomatoes are really fruit?
Do any of those count, and if so, under what definition of vegetable?
This is a VERY good question, Lisa. And something to seriously consider. Malnourished hubbers with out-of-whack alkaline/acidity balance could cause unnecessary heckling, bad grammar, or even multiple personality disorder to run amuck in Hubpages. And unless hubbers tell us about their proper nutrition, other hubbers may never know!
Therefore! I propose that all hubbers should put forth--before they sign into hubpages--a list of veggies they have consumed/plan to consume every day. Extra hubpoints if they have a V-8.
I think a better question might be: How many Hubbers ARE vegetables.
but a more important question still: How do we know whether any Hubber is a vegetable? (Or a fruit, a nut, or even a tool?)
In the interest of full disclosure, I'd get an A+ for V8, but and D- for spinach.
I am a vegetarian. So now you know So far today I've had, romaine and spinach, cucumbers, carrots, and a potato.

I respect the work of many hubbers, but at the very top of my list is 'peeples'. I am a great fan of this extraordinary woman and when you go to her profile page you will see why. Peeples is now homeless. Follow this...

Today I was alerted to a practice I have seen for the first time on Hub Pages. A Hubber, who shall for obvious reasons remain nameless, is shamelessly copying parts of another Hub Page Writer's hubs and posting them up...
