Nine Servings of Fruit and Vegetables?

I think I would be hard pressed to eat 3 servings of fruit and vegetables per meal; especially since breakfast usually consists of coffee.
And I wish I had enough time that I could spend 90 minutes every day doing vigorous exercise. Somedays, yes, I do more than that; but not even three times a week.

The New York Times > Health > Fitness & Nutrition > The Consumer: Nine Servings of Fruit and Vegetables?:

The newdietary guidelines for Americans released last week are more detailed than ever, distinguishing, for example, between whole and processed grains and between trans fats and healthy vegetable oils.

They are also more demanding. They raise the daily goal for fruit and vegetable consumption to nine servings from five, for instance, and challenge Americans who want to control their weight to get as much as 60 to 90 minutes of exercise on most days.

But many busy Americans may be stumped by how exactly to manage that.
