More Veggies, Please!

I've always had a hard time getting the recommended daily amount of vegetables in my diet. According to, a woman of my age and weight should be eating two and a half cups of veggies every day. (Click here to see what they recommend for you.)

And so I submit to you, two cups worth for today:

I also ate some hummus (which I'm counting as a veggie cause it is made of mashed up beans), some chunky salsa (stretching it, maybe?) and some lettuce on my sandwich. So I figure I'm going to be pretty close on this one. :)

Do you have trouble eating enough vegetables? What strategies do you use to fit them in?

Happy vegging!

I know I'm in the UK, but these links might help you too:

I'm doing my best to up my intake of fruit and veggies every day, though to be honest I prefer veggies to fruit!

I felt inspired by your post to go out and get a variety of veg to cut up and have handy for snacking. Also made some hummus. I'm going to make a concentrated effort to get my required amount of veg everyday :) Hubby cares NOT for veg though. It will be more work to find ways to make it more enjoyable for him.
