Which do you currently have more of in your house, fruits/vegetables or meat/dairy?

Meat. Because the freezer is big & full.
In comparison veggies need to be fresh and are bought and stored in lesser quantities which results in less fruit/veggies than meat/dairy at any one point in time.

Fruits and veggies, but they're only competing with meat. There isn't much dairy here right now.

'Bout even. We have a lot of meat, but also watermelon, papaya, apples, oranges, lemons, limes, cherries, lettuce, asparagus, cucumbers, and peppers. That’s from memory so there are probably more.

And strawberries, honeydew, carrots and sugar snap peas. Lots of dairy too. Only meats right now are bacon and sausage and a pack of chicken thighs. It’s usually more even.

Love the dairy, but it’s not too excited about me.

We have 1/2 a cow in the deep freezer. That pretty much tips the scale over all the fruit and veggies in the house, even if I add in all the long term food storage.

About equal. Are you counting apples as a whole or one each? Bananas, oranges, more fruit in summer. I have a couple of week’s worth meat in the freezer. Veggies are purchased day of except carrots, onions and potatoes and frozen peas. There is always a gallon of milk on hand and butter,locateli, brie and American cheese.

We have mostly fruit at this moment.

Definitely meat & dairy if you mean fresh... if I get to include canned and frozen, then it’s probably equal.

I usually have a protein, veggie and starch for dinner. Lunch is mixed. Toast for breakfast or cereal.

I have a meat freezer full of elk, pork from my sisters ranch, and other meats. So definitely more meat on hand.

Never tried elk. How is it?

I have more meat on hand most of the time...dairy too since cheese is so cheap at Costco and I don’t go often.

Veggies just have a very high turnover rate.

That's true. I also have to force myself to eat them fast. I guess that's a good thing...

Yeah, I like to eat greens and they go bad pretty quickly so they have to be consumed.

Good stuff and true.

Something we’ve noticed about veggies is the keeping power of red cabbage. It lasts for more than a month even after being cut, far longer than the green which makes it worth its higher price.

Vegetables and fruit. I don’t think I have any meat at all, not fresh anyway, but I do have yogurt, cottage cheese, cheese & butter. I shouldn’t even have as much veg & fruit as I do right now; I’m away from home for 10 days. I think I counted 7 giant bell peppers when I cleaned out my fridge yesterday.

Veggies. Not so much fruit. I eat a lot of fruit snacks tho. I don't eat that much meat.

By weight or value, probably meat and cheese. By volume, maybe fruit and vegetables (fries to be (taters), pies to be (apples), and lettuce (for sandwiches and burgers) hog up a lot of space).
