      In general, I eat 3/4 cup berries, 1/6 of a banana, and 2 cups veg (or one cups veg and 1 piece fruit like apple). That gets me to about 100 g for the day. I aim for colorful veggies for the anti-oxidants rather than the carb count. It's amazing how colorful lunch is when the good stuff isn't dwarfed by a giant beige bun.
      Meh, it's vegetation, either way.

      To be honest, I can't think of any true "veg" examples at the moment because my brain is is "Winter-mode", so it's all: starch, nuts, some fruit and almost entirely meat. And 100g of yoghurt isn't very much dairy at all. I can have HEAPS more when I feel like having dairy. 500ml unhomogenized milk, 200g greek yoghurt, 200ml double cream AND 100g butter. Just don't really fancy it at the moment. "Winter-mode", as I said. Just feel like root veg, meat, scrambled egg, dried fruit and nuts and hot stews.

      Some days over Summer and Autumn I could eat 200g sweet tater, 2 large carrots, 2 medium parsnips, 4 leaves of cabbage, 150g mustard leaves, 80g green beans...etc ON TOP of any fruit I fancied. But, at the moment, as long as the odd bit of plant matter goes in, I'm happy.

      Perfection is entirely individual. Any philosophy or pursuit that encourages individuality has merit in that it frees people. Any that encourages shackles only has merit in that it shows you how wrong and desperate the human mind can get in its pursuit of truth.
