Not even close!
We eat veggies at dinner time and thats it. Don't know how you are supposed to fit 5 serves in! Especially when my kids are at school all day and Im pretty certain they wont eat a bowl of steamed zucchini fro brekky!
I always make 3 different veggies, but thats 1 sitting.

Bit of a tip lol. Do you have a slow cooker? What I do is make a big meal in the slow cooker, then just cook something else for that night.
Or, when I make potato bake/pasta bake/lasagne, I use those individual foil trays with the lids and cook an extra 2 smaller portions in those, then just put the cardboard lid on and stick it in the freezer. Imagine just being able to pull one of those out for breakfast! Having cereal is only a fairly recent thing, a meal like veg lasagne in the morning would be great. With the potato bake, I make it with sweet potato, too. Also throw in onion, mushrooms, capsicum and spinach.

Only thing is I really need the All Bran if you know what I mean I could have omelette for morning tea I guess instead of the fruit! That could work.
And DiamondEyes, I should take a multi. I'm slack lol.
Mmmm dip with veg. We have that on weekends, guess I could pack some along with the 50 billion other things I pack each morning and snack on those. Sounds yummy.

To be completely honest I don't eat healthy enough.
I want to ask those of you that do, what is your shopping budget each week? We always eat lots of salad or veg with our main meal but to feed a family of 5 its so expensive for us to eat so healthy throughout the whole day.
We don't snack on junk foods more like lots of bread and cheese and fruit (not enough) etc. Not enough fresh produce.
So any tips to eat that healthy and keep the food bill down, we are on a really strict budget.....

I think your diet sounds pretty good Benji.
I used to eat enough veges, but not lately. I need to work on it, because I feel much better when I'm eating right. Plus I've just gone back on the pill and can feel myself getting a little more 'cuddly'!
I have a fast metabolism, but if I don't watch what I eat the weight creeps on and I get to a point where I totally overhaul my diet. I am almost at this point now.

Lately I have been making rice paper rolls. You can pack veg in there.
Or you can get hommus and have it with carrots, celery, cucumber etc
good snack for work.
Any dips you like really.
Making a salad for work or a veg/cheese roll.
Getting a juicer and making veg juice or veg/fruit.
