Non-Starchy Vegetables, Leafy Greens & You: How Much Is Enough?

How many non-starchy vegetables and leafy greens should you eat in a day? A few servings? A few pounds? or Six times per day? Should we eat them at every meal? What about for breakfast? Should they be a side dish or a main meal? And, when we discuss amounts, are we talking about servings, visual volume or calories? Someone could go "kale crazy" trying to figure it all out.

Here are a few articles and discussions to help you cut through the confusion. Take the time to read through them all to help put this issue in proper perspective & context. In addition, I have added a few posts below that have actually broken out the math.
