Name-That-Food Quiz

Click here for the original post.

Today’s food quiz comes from Alice Henneman, dietitian at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension in Lancaster County. Thanks, Alice.

This fun little test is more challenging than you might think. I’ll put the answers below so you can’t peek.

Food 1: I’m red and round and contain vitamins C and A. Though most people call me a vegetable, I’m really a fruit. I taste best when I’m stored at room temperature away from direct sunlight.

Food 2: While I’m often thought of as a vegetable side dish, I also can be served as a meat-free entrée. I’m kidney or oval shaped. I provide protein and fiber and am an excellent source of folate, a B vitamin.

Food 3: I’m a green fruit that is a source of monounsaturated fat, a heart-healthy fat. Store me at room temperature until I ripen.

Food 4: I’m on the nutty side of the same plant family as peaches and apricots. I’m a good source of vitamin E. There are 23 of me in one ounce, about a handful. Hint: I begin with an “A” and am often served in a mixture with other similar foods.

Food 5: I’m a member of the grain food group and a good source of fiber. I increase in size after I’m prepared. Three cups of me, served without added fat or sugar, provide less than 100 calories. I’m often eaten as a snack.

Food 6: A cup of me is similar to milk in calcium content. I’m available in several flavors. I’m a good source of protein and the B vitamin, riboflavin.

Food 7: I’m a good source of potassium. Store me at room temperature until I ripen; then refrigerate me. Though my skin darkens in the refrigerator, I’ll still be light inside.

Food 8: I belong to the morning glory family. I’m orange and high in vitamin A. I taste best stored in a cool, dry, dark place (55 to 60°F) and stay fresh for 3 to 5 weeks. At room temperature, I’m at my peak for about a week. I’m sometimes served mashed.

Food 9: And for a last question, here’s a food riddle … You throw away the outside and cook the inside. Then eat the outside and throw away the inside. I’m yellow in color. Hint: after throwing away the “outside,” the “inside” becomes the “outside.”

Answers
1. Tomato
2. Dried beans (great northern, kidney, garbanzo, black beans, etc.)
3. Avocado
4. Almond
5. Popcorn
6. Yogurt
7. Banana
8. Sweet potato
9. Corn on the cob. You throw away the husk (outside), cook and eat the corn (inside AND new outside), then throw away the cob (inside).

  • Michelle Obama: Thanks for Reminding Us We’re Not Alone

    You probably read last week that Michelle Obama acknowledged she’d been experiencing what she described as low-grade depression. You may have wondered aloud, as I did, how anyone who sees what’s going on in the world could avoid it. Many of us are feeling hopeless or anxious, ruminating about where this is all going, eating or sleeping poorly, and maybe drinking too much. Among other Read More

    You may have noticed fewer Health Tips about Covid-19 recently, which might have struck you as odd given our dreadful numbers here in the US. Well, there was a reason for this.

  • You Probably Don’t Need A Colonoscopy

    Quite often the patient sitting before me helpfully finishes my sentence. “Yeah, yeah, I know, I need a colonoscopy.” This happens in person or during a Telemed visit when I remark how they’re approaching (or recently turned) 50, 60, or beyond. Or they’re a few years beyond 50 or 60, and I genially ask, “Your colonoscopy current?” I do not willfully induce the stricken look Read More
