The right amount of - vegetables - for portion control
The largest measure is for vegetables.
With the vegetable measure you ensure that you receive a sufficient amount of the most important vegetables. Vary between different kinds of vegetables and root crops. This is the only measure that gives you a MINIMUM amount to eat, which means that you can add more vegetables if you want. You can choose the vegetables you like the most, both raw and cooked. Fill the measure with vegetables, right up to the rim. Then place the vegetables onto your plate.
The vegetable measure can also be used when you are eating lasagne or soup – meals that otherwise aren’t ideally suited to the use of the various measures – in order to achieve the right balance in your meal.
