Just fill out the Vegetable Intake Form noting how many servings of each category of vegetable you regularly eat. This HealthyFood Advisor will then calculate how your diet fares when it comes to recommended and optimal vegetable intake. You can see these results not only for total vegetable intake but across five different vegetable categories: green, red/purple, yellow/orange, cruciferous and allium.
The Vegetable Advisor then identifies the nutrients that your vegetable choices could potentially provide in much greater amounts.
From there it suggests which vegetables you can eat more of so that you can enhance your intake of these nutrients; these recommendations are split into two lists — those you don't currently eat and those that you do.
And to make these results even more actionable, we then considered this question: What are the top HealthyFood recommendations to improve vegetable intake? In the last panel of the results (entitled "Our Top Recommendations to Improve Your Vegetable Intake") we provide you with the answer to this question.
We realize that when you fill out the Vegetable Advisor that you likely will be "guesstimating" the amount of each vegetable that you consume! Don't worry — going with your best guess for each vegetable is absolutely fine. We will still be able to give you helpful feedback on your vegetable intake.
When telling us about your vegetable intake, please use the following basic guidelines:
|Below Recommended Intake|||
