Before, it was recommended that 5 to 8 servings a day of fruits and veggies. But a “serving” is kind of vague, and so it’s since been updated to 2 cups of fruit and 2.5 cups of vegetables every day.
Remember that these foods count in every form, including
Then there’s a whole list of examples for how fruits translate into a cup so you can get 2 cups daily :
1 small apple
1 large banana
1 medium grapefruit
1 large orange
1 medium pear
1 small wedge watermelon
2 large or 3 medium plums
8 large strawberries
For 2 cups of veggies try:
1 large bell pepper
1 medium potato
2 large stalks of celery
1 cup of cooked greens or 2 cups of raw greens (spinach, collards, mustard greens, turnip greens)
12 baby carrots (or 2 medium carrots)
1 large sweet potato
1 large ear of corn
10 broccoli florets
Science tells us that healthy foods like fruits and veggies reduce our risk of diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and Type 2 diabetes. They are also full of vitamins and minerals that help our bodies stay in tip top shape!
Just the other day we did a post on Things Organized Neatly. But some of us aren’t so neat. We may separate our edge pieces from our jagged pieces, but otherwise, we’re not so organized and prepared. We’ve got some puzzles for you too! Things that are a little messier, maybe even a little harder because these colors and patterns repeat.
What do you think—neat or messy? What’s your favorite? Let us know!
Maybe it’s because I’m a Virgo, but I really like things that have a precise organizational system. Looking at pictures of them is soothing. Organizing them myself is soothing. Sometimes I even make infographics organizing information about my life, like how many books I read. I imagine that doing a puzzle with a picture of things organized neatly would be even more soothing (for me personally) than just doing some random puzzle.
So, without further ado, here, in alphabetical order, are some of the puzzles we have of things arranged in a really aesthetically pleasing manner.
