Take 5 and Up

Sicilian Salad, originally uploaded by Em Dy.

This is Italianni's bestselling salad which we had at yesterday's Mother's Day lunch. Looking at it, I was reminded of the initiative to increase fruit and vegetable consumption to improve health. This salad more than fulfills the earlier requirement of 5 servings a day. Now, the recommendation is to eat a variety of fruits and vegetables daily.

Did you have fruit or vegetable last weekend? How was it?

That looks delicious. I had a lot of fruits and vegetables at my Mother's Day brunch.

My yoga teacher would be extremely pleased with your choice. Sabi nya dapat before eating anything, one should first line the stomach with either fruits or veggies. Hirap eh..

mine's up too..

Ces, and we had pizza and pasta too! And a platter of shrimp, ribs and steak. Not exactly really healthy. Ha ha.

Carver, good for you.

Cookie, mahirap nga! I hope all vegetables would be as good as this. I hate ampalaya.
