To think a portion of fruit and veg isn't that big
Rufusgy · 14/09/2015 14:09
Constantly people say how the portion of fruit or veg needed is big and people don't often get one in a meal. I've just created a dish with at least four portions with my tomato pasta lunch.
200g of tomatoes
2 large onions
80g button mushrooms
100 mung bean fettuccine
Then also but not enough for a portion
2 cloves of garlic
Bunch of basil
1 tbps tumeric
1 TSP Kayne pepper
A pinch off kelp
Handful of k olives
Onions were saluted in water too, no fat here. All this fits in one bowl and was just right for my lunch.

A portion of fruit or veg is 80g, which isn't really that big, but plenty of people still don't manage to eat much, for various reasons.
I eat hardly any fruit (one or two portions a week, max) but do probably have 400 g of veg of various types on most days.
That portion sounds quite large though, and would be more than I could eat in one go.
Stand by for queries about the protein content OP. Although I admit that I have no idea what mung bean fettucine is and guess that it could have lots of protein in?

Mung bean f is just made from mung beans and water. Its amazing stuff, great for clean eaters.
43g of protein in a 100g serving + all the protein from the other stuff makes it a very protein rich meal.
Ha for the typos!
Onions make others toot? Not moi
