In the following few posts I share information regarding the American Dietetic Association food exhange. This information will allow you to check out serving sizes from a variety of food groups and then learn what foods choices within the group so you can chose to make a single serving. Use this information to enjoy a healthy longer lifestyle and lose weight naturally. Category: Vegetables A single serving of vegetables contains 25 calories and 5 grams of carbohydrate. Here are a variety of foods that one serving equals:
½ Cup- Cooked vegetables (Cabbage, broccoli, zucchini, carrot, corn etc.)
1 Cup of raw vegetables or salad greens
½ Cup of Vegetable juice an excellent choice for vegetable juice is V8
One of the benefits of vegetables is if you are still a little hungry after you eat a single serving, feel free to enjoy some more. They contain low or no sugar and will help to make you feel fuller longer. In following posts, you'll learn the serving size of cherry juice, dried cherries and other dried fruit.
