So there was a recent thread by @rascal14 where we discussed how much protein we supplemented each day How much protein do you supplement a day? - AnabolicMinds.com and I got the idea that it might be interesting to see how we struture our foods as well.

So the question is straight forward, how much fruit and vegetables do you consume each day?

Personally I was really bad at this the first 30 years of my life haha. But then I got more and more serious about it and by now im eating quite a lot. You all know that im very structured about everything so I tend ot eat the same amounts every day.

Meal 1
  • 50g Blueberries
  • 50g Pineapple
  • 50g Tomatoes
  • 50g Cucumber
Post-Workout
  • 1/2 banana
Meal 2
  • 100g Broccoli
  • 100g Peppers
  • 75g Spinach
  • 10g Quinoa
  • 1 Kiwi
  • 50g Carrot
Meal 3

Meal 4

  • 100g Peppers
  • 75g Spinach

  • 1/4 Orange
  • 50g Carrot

I’ve been really bad about this until the past year or so and I’m probably still not eating near enough.

I’ll have 1-2 pieces of fruit a day, banana or apple.

at dinner I typically have a normal sized salad and about 1.5 cups of a vegetable in addition to that, usually broccoli and cauliflower. Then once or twice a week I will have quinoa as the main dinner carb in addition to that, which I didn’t know was a fruit until now, if that tells you how bad my nutrition is lol

I don't weigh my fruits and vegetables but il use a measuring cup.

It varies depending on my diet but I try to include fruits and vegetables with every meal.

Typically every day il eat 1,banana and 3-4 clementines, il also most days have roughly 1lb of watermelon and some pineapple chunks. 1-2x week il also use a bag of frozen fruit to make protein ice cream

For vegetables il have broccoli, asparagus or green beans daily. Il eat green onions and spinach daily and il have things like peppers and carrots a few times a week.

Now that the garden is in bloom il be having cuecumbers, tomatoes, zucchini and squash all pretty much daily.

Il start weighing but I'm gonna guess 2-3lbs of fruit and vegetables daily

Yeah its "technically" a vegetable:

While quinoa is often prepared like a grain and considered by many to be in the grain food group, it's actually a member of the spinach, chard, and beet family. Quinoa is the seed of the Chenopodium plant, a green leafy plant that sprouts numerous flowers.

My son loves corn on his pizza, I myself want pineapple on mine!

Fruits and vegetables both are good for your health. I eat 2-3 pieces of apple and banana a day, and at dinner I eat different vegetables. I also eat salad in the evening.

Not many. Maybe one serving plus an apple. No huge benefit to tons of Vege's.

That's Funny
Haaa its true. Salad I don't mind (but nothing but lettuce and tons of meat and cheese haa) I also don't mind some nicely grilled asparagus with garlic etc. Other than that I drink them.

And you get a TON of veggies in a grr3ns drink, the one I use requires 11kg worth of fresh greens dehydrated into a powder per 100g of finished product. So figure avg serving is 10gm, thats 1kg of veggies. That's insane.

Granted you lose a lot of roughage and fiber but all the beneficial nutrients are there. And I get plenty of fiber elsewhere.

I think I need to up my intake now 😳 I’d eat strawberries and raspberry’s 5 times a day if I could but here in the uk it’s very expensive.
