  3. I am new too the meal planning aspect. I have had the old book for awhile and have applied things here and there but just went shopping this week for your weekly meal plan which I am very excited to implement. I just have one quick question, when you say with fresh veggies on a meal can you give me an example or what or how much just so I have a general idea?

    1. When I eat fresh veggies, I usually have 3 or 4 slices of cucumber, some celery, two carrots (like baby carrots, not a big one) and sometimes some bell pepper slices.
