If you’re like many people, you might not be eating enough vegetables every day. Your recommended vegetable intake will vary depending on your age, gender, and other factors, but the general rule is to eat at least two to three cups of vegetables daily. The 2015–2020 dietary guidelines for Americans recommend eating “a variety of vegetables, including legumes (beans and peas), dark green, red, orange, starchy, and other vegetables.” Make healthy eating a reality by swapping or adding vegetables into your breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and even desserts.
