We recently caught up with our founder, who is also the founder of Fruitive, a fully plant-based organic restaurant chain with locations in Washington D.C. and Virginia, and asked him some questions about his favorite fruit and veggie.
PlantBased.Com: What is your favorite fruit?
Gregg Rozeboom: Avocados! People don’t usually think of avocados as a fruit, but they’re technically considered a single-seed berry.
PlantBased.Com: What is your favorite vegetable?
Gregg Rozeboom: That’s a hard one…I would have to say, spinach.
PlantBased.Com: How often do you eat avocados and spinach?
Gregg Rozeboom: I eat 1-2 avocados a day, 5-7 days a week! A lot of (often) times I’ll eat my avocado on toast for breakfast or lunch, or blend it in a liquid meal smoothie. Otherwise, I cut the avocado in half and eat it with a spoon. As far as spinach goes, I tend to eat spinach a few days a week in salads, smoothies, and on sandwiches.
PlantBased.Com: Why do you like Avocados?
Gregg Rozeboom: Avocados fill me up quickly and make me feel full longer. Avocados don’t have as much sugar as other fruits do, and the natural fat, vitamin B, and fiber gives me a boost of energy! I could probably say that I’m fueled by avocado.
PlantBased.Com: Why do you like Spinach?
Gregg Rozeboom: As a kid, I would watch Popeye and although Popeye would eat spinach out of a can, I was still inspired to consume fresh spinach for muscle growth. I also like that spinach is very easy to grab and eat, you can toss it in a salad or add it to almost any meal (or smoothie because it doesn’t change the taste!)
