    Juice them!!! if you eat a bag of say 1kg carrots it would take say a good couple of hours for ur body to digest everything from proteins, vitamins to enzymes... Not to mention the impact on your liver! BUT if you juice that same bag of kg carrots your getting the nutrients, proteins and enzymes into your blood ****** really quickly plus the digestion takes like half hour! As a family we have a huge veggie juice every morning! My children sometimes have 1-2c i worked out that's 3 servings, my hubby has nearly a liter! It's just veggies with either grapes or an apple to sweeten! Getting enough nutrients from ur veggies makes you not crave sweet things and makes you stay full...

    I don't really have the problem of craving sweet things. Although I do LOOOVE them, but I could go months without eating it.

    I could do juices, although would create one heck of a mess and I've kinda been put off after my dad turned orange when we were having far too many carrot juices.

    Do adore carrot + apple juice.

    I think so?? I generally have 5 veg on my plate for dinner.

    I suck at eating fruit - I don't dislike it, I just don't eat it

    So many non-fruity people!

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm not sure that the 2 serves of fruit would be necessary if you're eating more than 5 of veg??

    I just eat it for the high fibre content, esp in pears.

    Some days i do, others i don't. I think overall my vegetable intake isn't too bad, could be better but i still eat a fair amount.
    My issue is fruit. I don't like the taste of most fruit and don't eat much of it at all, whereas i love vegetables so it is easy to eat them.

    Just looking at my sandwich, I think even though it's a salad sandwich it's prob only got 1/2 serve of veg in it. A lot of people think that 5 types of vegetables = 5 serves but that's not it at all. If that were the case I'd have overloaded on vegetables!

    Might have baked potato, skin on, covered in veges (and, of course, avocado) tonight. I think that might bump me up to 5 as one potato with skin on = 1 serve.

    Yep I agree, fruit is great for fibre and vitamin C but broccoli contains almost as much vitamin C as a kiwi fruit does and avocado and legumes have tons of fibre

    The reason I have trouble with getting enough veges is I count avocado as a fruit.

    Is cucumber a fruit or a veg?

    If those two things (as well as eggplant, tomato etc) are counted as veg I'd be more than fine getting my 2 + 5. It'd be more like 4 + 5
