So according to this amazing fruit and vegetable amount calculator, I should eat 1 1/2 cups of fruits and 2 1/2 cups of veggies every day. I love that I now have an amount to strive for. That 5-9 servings stuff really tends to push me over the edge. I like to know details that are more reasonable than that. I like it easy. And telling me in cups is very kind of those nutrition people. I can do this :) Maybe I will pre cut my lunch freggies again into little mason jars..... I have 1 and 2 cup mason jars, that would be so easy to do. I am on it. I feel like a Ninja.

    I love your mason jar idea!! Way to go, Ute! I'm not having trouble eating my freggies. I love them for the most part. But starting just in the past few weeks, my body is having trouble with them. Bleh. I'm going to try switching to more cooked veggies and stay away from the cabbage/cauliflower family. Hopefully that will help. We must do what works!! And your blog is such a good example of that!

    I'm with POPSY190 on this one. Veggies are what we should be mostly eating. Period. I've tried to switch my thinking from having a meat with a veggie side to having veggies with a meat side.
    You've got this one! Veggie Ninja.
