Based on their nutrient content, vegetables are organized into 5 subgroups: dark-green vegetables, starchy vegetables, red and orange vegetables, beans and peas, and other vegetables.

The amount of vegetables you need to eat depends on your age, gender, and level of physical activity. The amount each person needs can vary between 1 and 3 cups each day. Those who are very physically active may need more.

For Whip it Up Wednesday, we have a recipe with several vegetables for you to enjoy. Always remember to wash your hands before you begin any recipe! Please feel free to send me pics after you try the recipe at ndkearney@ncat.edu!
