I am a member of different cooks communities on social media and I am quite surprised by the pictures of meals people post. I see carbs, proteins, dairy and some vegetables (5 French beans, 1 slice of tomato, 1 leaf of salad and so on).
Do you know how much you should get?
I have a very good news: there is no limit! Of course it is better to associate them with other ingredients, but they are the champions of vitamins and nutrients.
So the minimum right amount is 5 portions per day. To figure this, let's simplify and say that it represents 5 times the palm of your hand.
How to reach that if you don't?
- eat soups
- explore new veggies
- try those that can be eaten raw
- spice them up
- add flavors such as fresh or dried herbs
- add roasted seeds
- add butter, olive oil, homemade dressing
- present them nicely so the eye gets attracted
- call me for help !
