Any ideas on how to make sure I'm getting all of it in?
Hi, penguin, If I'm planning on eating an early dinner, then I have my last packet shortly before bedtime. However, if I'm going to be eating after 7 or 8 p.m., I eat the last packet in the late afternoon, about 3:30. This spreads the meals out more. If you can't eat 2 cups of vegetables (measured before cooking) at once with a meal, you could eat a cup's worth midway between breakfast and lunch or lunch and dinner. That way you'd just have to eat a cup at a time.
