What The Heck Is A Serving Size Of Fruit Or Vegetable Anyway? - July 13, 2012

Friday, July 13, 2012

It's amazing however long that we're on this journey, there is still something new to learn. And often enough, that changes over the years as even nutritionists and the FDA contemplate what is really in our best interests.

So, today's conundrum for me was lunch. I wanted to have a bunch of baby carrots with my grilled eggplant, but had no idea what a serving size of the carrots is. The packaged stuff is now easy, thanks to the work of Dr. Fred Kessler during his tenure with the FDA requiring foodstuffs to include caloric content. That alone was worth his weight in gold, and in my opinion one of his greatest accomplishments while in office. It simplified calorie counting beyond measure.

Looking for help, I went to the net in search of an answer, in my latest quest to get even healthier, and I found something that, perhaps, others may find useful:

Happy eating!
