Loads of Veggies and Massive Salad

I find people saying they had “loads of veggies” or “massive salad” with their meal irrationally irritating. Not the fact they had vegetables or a salad, just the phrases.

I am being unreasonable, aren’t I?

Do people even say those things?

Though I have to say I find adults using the word “veggies” very irritating.

Yanbu.

"Massive salad" like it's a hearty, indulgent, filling meal. It just never is.

No you aren't being unreasonable. It also grates when people say that for their monthly treat, they have a square or two of 'good' chocolate. All chocolate is good.

Many people like vegetables. I do. The fact that thiese phrases irritates you says something about your feelings towards vegetables, I suspect?

Yabu. I filled up tonight on a massive salad and for dessert a lick of a rivita. I'm stuffed grin

@RobertaFirmino no it's not. Cadburys for example. It tastes like someone mixed a bar of chocolate with some old candle ends. I'd sooner go without TBH.

Not at all. I love most vegetables. I’m more lukewarm about salad, but a good one is nice.

My massive salads usually have cheese and pork pie in them so not exactly healthy wink

Yanbu!

I will agree with you though, about the use of the word "veggies". The word is vegetables.

Pork pie is a salad ingredient now?

Who knew?

Huge salads
Massive pots of chilli

Never normal sized. Very irritating

I would add
Hot choc
Toms
Tinned toms
Pots
Jkt pots
Spag bol
Mac n cheese
And the use of "good" and "proper" when talking about bread, butter, etc

When you add in all the Yums
and yummies it's little wonder I avoid food threads usually.

Any adult who refers to vegetables as veggies deserves to be pelted with frozen sprouts until they see the error of their ways.
YANBU op.

On the Christmas breakfast thread the other day there was a mention of, "massive fruit salad".
Ffs.

@Bloodypunkrockers Don't forget the Nom Nom 🤬

It’s like an obsession on here, not a month goes by without someone starting yet another thread about massive salads.

BurntO Wed 08-Dec-21 22:46:47

I’d love to see pictures from British families of their massive salads.

cantgetmyheadroundit Wed 08-Dec-21 22:47:51

You are so right. Also, 'picky bits'.

MeredithGreyishblue Wed 08-Dec-21 22:48:03

Who wants a massive salad anyway? All that chewing for so little gain. Inefficient.

GiveYourHeadAWobble Wed 08-Dec-21 22:49:28

YABU. I love massive salads. I also love vegetables.

SpookyScarySkeletons Wed 08-Dec-21 22:49:47

"Massive salad" always makes me a bit hmm too.

Mentally I picture a huge huge salad like man vs food style and then have a giggle about it 😂
