I used to count the portions wrong. For example, if I took a lot of corn, it was actually 2 portions according to the measurement for the log. So even though I ate one vegetable, it counted for more than one portion. I think others might be under-counting their freggies that way too...

Remember, they cost less and can't run away like meat.

My endocrinologist says that food is powerful, that it is medicine. He highly recommends eating about 7 servings or more of fruit or veggies a day, but limit the starchy ones. He prefers red or colored (the blue-purple ones) over russets or the regular white/baked potato. Yukon golds are OK, too.

Placing the fruits and veggies on frig shelf at eye level works for me. No more out-of-sight-out of-mind!

I eat plenty of fruit but continue to struggle to increase my vegetable servings. Even as an RDN it's a challenge, but I continue to work on it. The article includes some very good tips.
