Loads of Veggies and Massive Salad
HangingDitch · 08/12/2021 22:29
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.

"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

@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

I will agree with you though, about the use of the word "veggies". The word is vegetables.
Warmduscher · 08/12/2021 22:43
Pork pie is a salad ingredient now?
Bloodypunkrockers · 08/12/2021 22:43
Massive pots of chilli
Never normal sized. Very irritating
I would add
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.

On the Christmas breakfast thread the other day there was a mention of, "massive fruit salad".
OhGiveUp · 08/12/2021 22:45
@Bloodypunkrockers Don't forget the Nom Nom 🤬
Bluntness100 · 08/12/2021 22:45
It’s like an obsession on here, not a month goes by without someone starting yet another thread about massive salads.
BurntO · 08/12/2021 22:46
I’d love to see pictures from British families of their massive salads.
cantgetmyheadroundit · 08/12/2021 22:47
You are so right. Also, 'picky bits'.
MeredithGreyishblue · 08/12/2021 22:48
Who wants a massive salad anyway? All that chewing for so little gain. Inefficient.
GiveYourHeadAWobble · 08/12/2021 22:49
YABU. I love massive salads. I also love vegetables.
SpookyScarySkeletons · 08/12/2021 22:49
"Massive salad" always makes me a bit too.
Mentally I picture a huge huge salad like man vs food style and then have a giggle about it 😂
Lizzy1980 · 08/12/2021 22:50
Please don’t, I can’t bear nom nom 😂

Seriously, though - the only thing that makes a massive salad appetising is adding things to it that negate the point of the salad. By the time you've got the pasta and the bacon and stuff, it's probably better to leave the salad aspect out, to save calories.
