The grapefruit tree is finally ripening, and I just picked up some grapefruit that blew down in this morning's storm. There are still a couple of cans of V8 left, too. I prefer to eat healthy and organic, but sometimes I have to go with economical. I generally eat vegetarian, and have stuck with vegetarianism for months at a time, but I have occasionally broken it up with raw hamburgers and raw cheeseburgers for a few days, and if I'm hungry and someone offers me a meal with meat in it, I'll probably eat it.

I was wondering what geniuses like to eat :)
In the 148-IQ sense, pretty much anything allowed in the books of Leviticus & Deuteronomy dietary law.
In the common sense as you seem to portray it: I'll cheat and have my healthily-prepared whole-wheat homemade peanut butter cookies (a baker's dozen in one sitting) and the girlfriend will give me the "you're nuts" look. The occasional loaf of 100% whole wheat toasted bread smeared with butter and rhubarb-raspberry jam, homemade of course. Both cookies and loaf of bread downed with my 20% cream and 80% water mixture.
Breakfast consists of 3 beef sausage links, 3 eggs over easy, 2 slices of whole-wheat bread with 100% peanut butter, buttered of course.
And a couple cups of good coffee to start out the day.
Lunch is a couple chicken thighs with skin removed, steamed broccoli or cauliflower or cabbage with yellow bellpepper with melted white/mild cheddar. The usual suspect fruits consisting of berries and/or melons. Tuna casserole is another family favorite.
Dinner depends on what the girlfriend and our daughter usually come up with. Beef roast, some sort of chicken recipe, white tuna or red/pink salmon dish. And the usual suspect vegetables. Fruit would be watermelon, cantaloupe, musk melons etc.
Of course the all-American hamburger, 85% lean meat. Homemade oven-baked fries with a tad of sunflower oil and sea salt sprinkled with Mrs. Dash seasonings. I have a liking for russets whereas the girls like the Yukon Gold or reds. With baked potatoes, it's russets with scads of butter and Daisy sour cream with a touch of fresh-cracked pepper and chives.
A dessert may consist of home-made vanilla ice cream (real cream & sugar) not the crappy, store-bought corn syrup stuff. The flavored ice creams would be real strawberries, raspberry, chokecherry, june berry, peach-rhubarb, rhubarb-raspberry etc.
is your diet mainly healthy ?
Always except for the "healthy-prepared" cookie binge and assorted-such yuppies :-)
or do you eat just to survive?
You have one opportunity in this eternity called life .. so go all out!!!!
I love eating healthy /fresh (organic preferably)
Yup, we do ;-/ .. Tho, the organic label is overblown. We buy the meats from farmers we know, or (borrow) in a pinch from neighbors we know. The gov't "organic" label we do not trust.
I love cooking
I had to learn the hard way. My Mother (with slight exaggeration) wasn't too swift in the kitchen except for pies, cakes, cookies and breads. And my Dad never learn how to boil eggs. So it was pretty much fend for yourself, or eats junk food prepared by mom. They were Depression-era influenced where many days it was a couple slices of bread with lard for topping. Or, a potato... They both were needled-diabetics till they died.
Just curious as to your eating habits - Thankyou
Our good genius-buddy and resident sage, the esteemed Ryan Rudolph of Canadian lore had a thread on this very topic a couple years ago, or so. I think you'll find it in the back nether pages of Worldly Matters somewhere thereabouts.
PS - Store bought food is increasingly radiated, sprayed with this-and-that, BHT added to milk, flown in from other countries. I was raised on a ranch/farm combo, so we always had food to eat though during the drought of the 1950s (in North Dakota) we were forced off the land due to five consecutive crop failures etc. It toughened me up whereas if "hard times" come again at least I can plant a garden, shoot wild game essentially provide for family though girlfriend is a better shot with the guns, rifles.
The occasional marijuana tea or hemp tea. Quite delicious.
Ditto for the occasional pitcher of Budweiser keg (raw) beer - with a Cuban cigar. A night out at the local bar, shoot a few games of pool, some darts and a decent juke box. Good conversation and the occasional marijuana spliff .. makes for healthy, wealthy, wisey.
Life is hard.

My parents left it at that and I enjoyed good health with mostly bread, dairy, fruit and candy my first decade, without supplements*! Shattering quite a few myths about what children should eat. Although I ate near everything later in life, nowadays I'm living largely as vegetarian with the odd seafood thrown in.
*) But at some point I was attracted to small amounts of (raw) liver and sometimes even rare (roasted) beef. Not sure anymore at what age that started. At the time that was not associated with health benefits, just a voluntary crave.
