How many servings of fruits and vegetables are you eating each day? If you answered 5, then you are right on target and may potentially be increasing your lifespan! What exactly does a serving look like? For fruits, one serving is equal to 2 Tbsp of dried fruit, about 1 Cup of raw fruit or about a baseball sized round fruit. For vegetables, one serving is equal to ½ Cup cooked, 1 Cup raw or 2 Cups of leafy green vegetables. While fruit juices may provide some vitamins and minerals, they also dense in sugar and calories. Be sure to eat your fruits rather than drinking them. This will allow you to reap the benefits of their fiber content. Or make your own smoothie which helps to retain the pulp and fiber.
