We all know that vegetables and fruits are good for us, yet the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found last year that only a third of adults ate fruits or drank fruit juice at least twice daily, and only 26% of adults ate vegetables three or more times daily.

Go to www.fruitsandveggiesmatter.gov to find out how much fruits and vegetables you need to consume daily ~ it differs according to age, gender and activity level. The site will also help you figure out how much is a cup or half a cup of fruits and vegetables, and how to stretch your fruits and vegetable budget.

Are you eating the recommended daily servings of fruits and vegetables?

1.5 cups of fruit and 2 cups of vegetables every day ... and I do think I accomplish this. In fact, I often exceed it!

Unfortunately I do not get near enough veg or fruit into me which is why I must be struggling with my weight, still, after all these years of dieting.

Go Carol!

Do you and your husband have a vegetable garden?

Hi Susan!

Does this mean that you have to be careful when eating all vegetables or are there certain vegetables that affect you more than others?

Going on a tangent... how did the wedding go?
