GERMAN VOCAB HELP!!! (accompanied by a list of foods, mainly fruits, vegetables, nuts, etc)

Hello everyone!

I'm Hollyleaf, and I'm starting this German Vocab Help Thingy because I feel that Duolingo doesn't provide a sufficient amount of vocabulary on many things. (Note: I haven't finished Food 2 yet so I can only speak for Food 1.) I also feel like they should add the plural form of the noun with the vocab, so I'll be adding that too. (Note: some nouns are collective)

I'll add more as I go, but here I go for now! (Feel free to comment on whatever you think I'm missing so I can add it!) (Another note: some of these are repeats from Duolingo. I'm trying to make this as complete as possible.)

Many thanks! In case you have a big appetite, der Fisch can have a plural: die Fische.

Yes, I have seen it. But please have a look at your list. There are some typos. And you have forgotten the articles in the plural. (They are not always identical.)

But plurals are always "die" -- the list is not inflected (i.e., it shows the nominative)

What a helpful list! Could you add gluten frei grains? I can give you a list. I was so worried I was going to poison myself in Deutschland. If not, I can try to compile a list!
