Just thinking about my diet and I realised how difficult it actually is to have 5 serves of vegetables per day whilst being at work for most of the day.
I know I eat more than enough fruit, but I don't think I eat enough vegetables and can't really see how to do it! Help!
I know DS has enough as he's 5 years old and only needs 2-4 serves of vegetables and he'll snack on carrot sticks, celery and baby spinach until the cows come home. But me......
So, in the mornings I'll wolf down breakfast and pack lunches for everyone. Goes something like this most days (I eat more on weekends when home):
all bran with strawberries/blueberries
almost a litre of water on the way to work
apple or pear
wholemeal sandwich with salad, avocado, turkey or chicken
maybe another piece of fruit
varies but the bulk of the plate is made up with vegetables
I'm probably eating too much fruit (berries, apples, pears, avocado)... avocado is a huge part of my diet lol. When I think about it, even though I'm trying to include salad with lunch and mostly vegetarian dinners, I reckon I'm only eating maybe 3-4 serves.
How the heck do you fit it all in?
Do I need to be crunching on horse carrots like DS does all day lol.
