Keep Eating Those Veggies and Fruits

Gosh, I’ve probably already used this post title before, but the fact remains that research continues to reinforce the importance of including vegetables and fruits in our diets. Here is yet another review.  In general, I recommend 9 servings of vegetables daily (no, that does NOT include potatoes) plus several servings of fruit. Keep in mind that a serving size of raw produce is about 1 cup; of cooked produce it’s about 1/2 cup. So, that giant Fuji apple may actually be 3 servings! I will also say that it’s difficult to get your daily allowance of veggies unless you include them in your breakfast, too–not a popular recommendation in the USA, but delicious!!
