Does anybody else have a hard time getting in the recommended 5+servings of fruits and vegetables daily? I've always struggled with it a bit and could use some tips to get more into my diet.
A typical day for me includes veggies piled high on a sandwich (1 serving) with a piece of fresh fruit. (2 servings) Steamed veggies at dinner (3 servings) and maybe a salad. (4 servings).
All this on a good day and still not even 5 servings!
I'd love to hear how you get in your fruits and veggies or great ideas that we can try.
According to federal dietary guidelines the following constitutes a serving:
1 cup of raw leafy vegetables
1/2 cup of other vegetables cooked or raw
1 medium apple, banana, orange, pear
1/2 cup of chopped, cooked, or canned fruit
