Veggie Tracker FAQ

  • How do I use the veggie tracker?

    It’s easy! To begin, sign-up on the Veggie Tracker website, where you’ll select a username and password. This will be your login anytime you’d like to input your veggie intake. Once you’re logged in, you’re ready to track!

    To track your veggies, start by using the arrows to toggle to the day you’d like to enter for. From there, you can either scroll or search for the veggie you’d like to add. Once you click on your veggie, you’ll be able to adjust the quantity/amount to match what you’ve eaten. Keep track of how many veggies you consume at each meal and enter every day!

  • What if I don’t get a welcome email?

    Check again in 10 minutes! It may be delayed. If that doesn’t work, check your junk and spam filters. If you’re still not finding the welcome email, you can contact us and we’ll help you out!

  • What if it doesn’t work on my phone/computer?

    Try using a different browser, especially if you’re using Explorer. The Veggie Tracker works best in Google Chrome or Safari. If you’re still having difficulty, you can contact us and we’ll help you out!

  • Can I add in previous days?

    Yes! You can always go back and add or adjust previous days. Use the arrows to toggle back and forth between days to see the progress you’ve made or to add more.

  • Is it free?

    Yes! The Veggie Tracker is free.

  • Where can I download the e-book?

    All you need to do is sign-up for the Veggie Tracker! As soon as you’ve signed-up you’ll receive a welcome email with a link to download your free e-book.

  • What counts as a vegetable?

    Any vegetable or 100% vegetable juice counts toward your goal of 3 cups a day. Vegetables may be raw or cooked; fresh, frozen, canned, or dried/dehydrated; and may be whole, cut-up, or mashed.

  • What counts as a cup of vegetables?

    In general, 1 cup of raw or cooked vegetables or vegetable juice, or 2 cups of raw leafy greens can be considered as 1 cup. When you go to enter your veggies, each item lists specific amounts that count as 1 cup of vegetables (in some cases equivalents for ½ cup are also shown) towards your recommended intake. That way you’ll know exactly how much to enter!

  • What if I’m already eating lots of veggies?

    That’s great! Use the Veggie Tracker to verify that you’re eating as many veggies as you think you are, or just for fun. You can log as many veggies as you eat, even past the recommended 3 cups. The carrots on the tracking page will stop filling once you reach your daily goal, but don’t worry, the tracker will continue to log each additional veggie you enter.

    There’s always room for more veggies!

  • What if my veggie isn’t on the list?

    We’ve included all of the veggies on the USDA’s list (which you can view here), and more! If you think an important one is missing, let us know! After you’ve tracked a few times, those you eat most frequently will show up at the top.
