This information comes from a USA Today article that does a good idea of explaining about how it's actually fairly easy to eat the recommended amount of these foods. One suggestion is to fill at least half your plate with fruits and veggies.
Also, one of the experts quoted in the article says:
My suggestion: Join a CSA! Since we've joined Blooming Glen Farm, we eat way more veggies than we ever have before. And there's not much better than fresh produce grown within a mile of home. Or go to farmers' markets and buy local fruits--it's almost peach time![E]very little bit counts: raisins in cereal, frozen berries in smoothies, vegetables in soup, tomato sauce on spaghetti, beans in chili, veggies on sandwiches, 100% fruit juices.In general, one cup of raw or cooked vegetables or vegetable juice, or two cups of raw leafy greens, counts as one cup from the vegetable group. One cup (or one piece) of fruit or 100% fruit juice, or half a cup of dried fruit, is considered one cup from the fruit group. So if you eat an apple or banana, that counts as one cup of fruit for the day; a medium side salad could equal about one cup of vegetables.
Oh, by the way. If you read the article, scroll down to the comments. Some are incredibly idiotic and entertaining.
