Good info, thank you!
I will use this to refer back to because I did not realize that many of the "servings" are a full cup, not a half cup.

Don't be afraid to have 10 servings of veggies though.

It's meant five total servings. It can be the same one (but it's great to aim for the rainbow of freggies). So you would have two servings done.

Spinach, because it is a leafy green, is one serving when you have 1 cup; most veggies and fruits are 1/2 cup servings. Leafy greens are different.

My goal is to eat at least 5 fruits/veggies daily.
If I eat a spinach salad for lunch and then have cooked spinach with my dinner I have been counting that as 2 veggies ie: servings
Is that customarily how it is done or is the goal supposed to be to eat 5 DIFFERENT ones each day???
