I use what ever the package says for a serving...for the baby carrots it was 3 oz, about 6 fat ones, it was 7 radishes, 2 medium stalks of celery. The 9 cups comes from the video that Mark wrote about that Ruth referenced. The woman/doctor who 'cured' her MS eats 9C a day of fruit and veggies= 3 sulfur rich, 3 leafy green, and 3 brightly colored. I figure 9 servings and each different is a good start, no need to get too anal about it.

I want a new one, but can't bear to pay $20. I'm on the hunt for a cheaper one.
Ate lots of veggies today (I call it 9 servings). I'm most definitely fully. 3 cups collard greens (raw), 2.5 cups coleslaw mix (raw), 1 cup mashed pumpkin (I counted this as two, since a serving is 1/2 cup), 8 oz mushrooms (raw). I need more color, but I'm still working on that!
For some reason, I'm worried about the number Mr. Grumpy Pants will display tomorrow. I think it's because I've "tasted" a bit too much of the food I've made for the family. I made DH and mom some pumpkin cookies, with added protein (unflavored gelatin). I'd just as soon they'd skip the sugar, but hey, at least I controlled the sugar, there's some protein, and pumpkin is good for them.
I have some spinach in the dehydrator. Will see if I can come up with a powder to mix into their food. They aren't so hip on veggies for breakfast (unless I hide them in their food...along with some protein!).
I still have the digital scale that I got when leaving a CW eating disorders hospital 20 yrs ago. It's a good scale. They also gave us 1/2 cup measuring spoons. Maybe I could use those to get my veggies in.
