Tough question. It would have to be avocado. Avos are one of the three healthy fats. FYI, finishing out the list are certain raw nuts (almonds, walnuts) and olive oil. Avos are incredibly versatile to use. You can eat it right out of the skin with a spoon, top a sandwich with it instead of mayo, use it in salads, in dips and guacamole, w/ pastas, and, as a garnish,have you tried it in a green smoothie?… All ages can enjoy it because of its creamy texture. Its easy to tell when its ripe, easy to peel, easy to transport. Its so nummy you dont have to bother with leftovers…plus you can play with the seed. Remember the gradeschool experiments with toothpicks stuck in the avo seed and balanced over a water source for propogation? ..Yep, the lovely avocado….Now, was that a fruit or a veg??

I would choose bananas. They are always ready to eat. No need to worry about washing them.

Fresh spinach definitely.

It would have to be Strawberries! Eaten fresh off they vine, they are a nice little red ball of sweet flavor bursting in your mouth, and just making you ask for the next one. They can be mashed and drizzled, sliced and diced, to add to other foods, or frozen for a quick snack on a hot day. Mmmmm, I think I need to head to the store.

I would go with carrots. They are a good substitute for chips, tasty, typically stay fresh longer than other fruits and vegetables, and require no preparation when you buy the baby carrots in the bag.
