What is your number?

How many vegetables have you eaten today?

How many will you eat today?

How many do you typically eat?

What are your favorite veggies?

Did you know that the daily amount has now gone fom 5 to 7 (for adults and children) and that fruits are still 3 a day (reccomended)? I learned this recently and was shocked.... here I thought I was doing something right eating 5 or 6 a day and was still not getting enough in because they went and changed it out from under me! lol

  • I had mushrooms and tomatoes with my omelet this morning. Haven't had lunch yet, but will have carrots in my Vegi soup (by Bob's Red Mill). For dinner I'm having a stir-fry with broccoli, onion, yellow and orange carrots, sugar snap peas, and mushrooms. Dessert tonight will be pears or peaches. I'm normally pretty good about getting vegetables in but don't do very well with fruits. Easily 5 servings a day of veggies, lucky to get 1-2 servings of fruit each day.

  • I've eaten none today - today will be a bad day, that's for sure. I like fruits & veggies, but have a hard time getting enough - if I have the right stuff on hand and make smoothies I have no problem getting enough of both, or if I make a veggie soup it's easy too.

  • I've only had breakfast today, but so far I've eaten blackberries and melon.

    I expect to eat at least 2 vegetables and probably another fruit for lunch, and 5 for dinner. We're having stir-fry for dinner.

  • Ok I'm revising my answer to question 2.  I'm having mushrooms with my supper tonight and don't say they're not vegetables because they're plants and that counts.


    Answer by beeky at 5:56 PM on Aug. 17, 2010

  • blackberries (pancakes) orange (juice) with eggs for breakfast
    peaches (lunch)
    mushrooms, broccoli, cabbage (this was in stir fry with chicken and rice) carrots (on the side)
    That was in one day...yesterday.
    That's typical for me.
