Eating enough fruits and veggies: a visual cheat sheet

Hi folks, I’m Kevin, Tango’s friend.  I’ll be dropping by from time to time to post things about food and maybe some other neat stuff too.  Pleased to make your acquaintance.

I’m by no means a fan of the “food pyramid“, as designed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, but it does it get some things right.  American’s as a whole should eat more fruits and vegetables.  But how much is enough?  Food blog CHOW‘s visual guide illustrates the varied forms a cup of fruits or vegetables can take.  Be sure to take this chart with a grain of salt, though (literally, if you’d like).  A cup of celery isn’t nutritionally the same as a cup of grapes, even if they occupy the same space in your stomach.
