I want to work my way up to 9/10 servings a day.
To start I would like to go with 4 servings of ea. a day & increase that by 1 serving ea. every week or so.
I'm starting small It is the holidays after all.

I think starting w/4 is good--for me it's more a "range" of 3-5 for now, adding in when I can and trying to remember more often.

I think 4 sounds good too.  I really need to work on this.  I like fruits and vegetables but I don't buy enough different ones and need some different ways to prepare/serve them.

I am going to start with 4 too. I'm also going to try to make it 4 real servings of f & v, not just using the V8 juices an stuff. I figure that will help boost my f & v intake :)

OK I'm in: 3x fruit (easy) 3x veggies (hard)

For me it has been all about convenience veggies, e.g. Bagged baby carrots.

This is my plan too, 3-5/day adding in here and there.  I would like to be up to at least 5/day.  Fruit is a cinch, veggies not so much! **bleck**

I need to do this! My goal is 5-6 fruits and veggies.
 
Today will be: 4, maybe 5 if I make a good choice for my after school snack!

After a slow start of 2 cookies for breakfast and a jr. roast beef sandwich, mozz. sticks, and pepsi for lunch (arby's), I have done much better!

I had 2 pears for a snack and then for dinner I had pita w/hummus, baba ganoush, tomatoes, onions, and feta--perfect! I got in THREE veggies at dinner and am totally stoked about that. I've hit my 5 for the day and I may yet have cereal w/pomegranate or a couple clementines for my nighttime snack. Star

How'd everyone do w/their fruits and veggies today?

I had a banana and then, ahem, 6 or 7 servings worth of spinach and a few other greens. LOL
Probably that was a really bad idea, but it was yummy, with some butter and cream cheese! Tongue
That's one way of getting in your servings...

man, i suck. i had a huge salad today but that would be the only veggie or fruit that entered my body. maybe i should shop the produce aisle FIRST instead of last, when i am spent and ready to check out. both physically/ mentally and with my groceries.
how do you all buy produce?

I am jumping on the f&v wagon! I seriously need more veggies in my life and could do better on fruits, too. Since I really eat almost no veggies right now, my goal is 4 a day, 2 servings of each. The more I eat, the more DH and DS will eat...and we all need it!
