Cue that wondrous rhyme of yesteryear:

Holy, holy, holy
Not in guacamole
Nor in a frijole
Thy countenance we see
But on a tortilla -
Bless Saint Sensimilla!
There we get to see ya
Etched eternally.
Où sont les merguez d'antan ?

I totted up my "five a day", just to check, and so far I'm at 21. Although one of those is a combination of herbs and spices.

That should keep you going.... ;D

I don't think that's feasible if a nominal portion is ~80g.

1.6kg produce in a day...

Crisps do count as part of your five a day, no?

As much as chocolate oranges do... (Seasonal Fruit chez nous)

Srsly Potatoes apparently don't count, even if microwaved and eaten unpeeled without added fat.

I'm working on handfuls. I weighed my breakfast after draining the excess water and it was 1.2kg. That was brown rice, red lentils, mushrooms, spring greens, carrot, quinoa, raisins, and herbs/spices. While it was cooking I had some fruit, apple, orange, banana, and some nuts.
I'd have that twice a day, sometimes three, changing the ingredients, and fit in a bowl of oat porridge with berries and raisins/currants.
Plus more fruit in between and maybe some whole meal toast with jam/marmalade/marmite.

Yes, and each flavour counts individually towards the total.

1.2 kg of breakfast! Visiting the toilet must be like something out of Dambusters.
