Five a Day

Are you getting your five servings of fruits or vegetables a day?

Me neither. But don't despair. Authors of the book 5 a Day: The Better Health Cookbook, Dr. Elizabeth Pivonka and Barbara Berry, suggest you can start slow. ". . . Just try to beat the number of servings you had the day before."

And you might be surprised. A serving is not only one medium-sized piece of fruit, it can also be 3/4 c. fruit or vegetable juice, 1/4 c. dried fruit, or 1/2 c. frozen or canned vegetables or fruit.

So that smoothie you whipped up for an afternoon snack? Totally counts.
