Get savvy about servings

You know you’re supposed to eat them, but what exactly is a serving size? When it comes to veggies, it’s about the size of a baseball. So one serving of veggies could be a half-cup of raw vegetables, one small bell pepper, 12 baby carrots (or two big ones), a cup of leafy greens, or a half-cup of cooked squash. At any meal, try to eat your veggies first before you get full.
