One Who Has Shehakol and Ha'etz Foods

One Who Has Shehakol and Ha'etz Foods
Day: Thursday
Date: June 16, 2016
Parshat: Naso
Yalkut Yosef: O"H: 211

In memory of Hannah bat Shelomo.

Foods with the berachot of ha'etz and ha'adamah both precede foods on which shehakol is said. Since ha'etz and ha'adamah are each specific to a limited type of food and shehakol is a generic beracha that can cover most anything, the others are said first. However, even if one said shehakol first, he still needs to say the other berachot on the other foods he plans on eating. Even though as mentioned above, shehakol can cover any food, that is only the case when one specifically has in mind to cover other foods. But when one still plans on eating other foods and saying their proper berachot, shehakol will not cover them.
