    How many pounds of vegetables do you eat in a week?

    Uncooked, fresh, that is. If frozen, I guess you can unconvert by figuring out the water lost during cooking and go from there.

    Just curious. I typically eat about a pound a day, but I see some people eating a lot more. Personally, I'd like to eat less than a pound/day because a) it's cheaper, and b) I don't get as hungry. But I'm concerned about nutrient deprivation, so I'd like to make a comparison at least.

    My landlady who is a nurse just told me that we need to eat 2-3 pounds of veggies a day in order to get the proper amount of nutrients. CW? I'm starting to doubt her Asian education versus relatively my limited knowledge from PB and Pubmed.

    Can't say that I weigh my veggies... also some veggies are a lot more dense than others. You have to eat a lot more spinach to be a pound then broccoli..

    So i really have no clue. I'd say I probably eat between 3-6 servings of veggies a day.

    I dunno exactly. A couple pounds of sweet potatoes and maybe a couple pounds of other veggies per week? Salad greens don't weigh much.
