Reading the chapter on vegetables in “52 Small Changes” I felt pretty confident. Brett Blumenthal recommends 4-6 servings a day and suggests you measure them.
“One serving = 1/2 cup of non-leafy vegetables or 1 cup of leafy vegetables.” Brett Blumenthal
Lunch every day is a salad because I love them. I decided to measure the ingredients yesterday. What an eye-opener!
In my food journal, I recorded my salads as 2 servings. But it is 4 servings and a 1/2 a serving a fruit!
Eating 6 servings a day seemed difficult but dinner at Pizza Ranch made it easy! Their salad bar in the summer is the best!
My standard is now 6 servings each day. Measuring makes judging the number of servings easy.

The ones who are so miserable they can only be happy when they have attention? …The battle that I’m in is too real for me to play around and live my life with exposed places and low standards?” “Who Set Your Standards?” 1 Min Motivation, Steven Furtick
