How much do you need to prepare for 250 grams of vegetables per day?

18 April 2019|Nutrition

Eating vegetables is really good for your body. Vegetables contain a lot of vitamins, minerals, and other useful nutrients that contribute to a healthy and fit body, such as antioxidants and fiber.

According to guidelines, we should eat at least 250 grams of prepared vegetables per day. Of course, we'd prefer you to eat between 250 to 500 grams of prepared vegetables per day, but for now, let's focus on the minimum daily amount: How much raw vegetables do you need for that?

When you prepare vegetables, the portions often shrink (for example, when cooking spinach or endive), and some of it is lost during the cleaning process.

In this article, we provide an overview of the amount of vegetables you need to ensure you get enough daily.
