Every fruit and veggie will weigh a different thing. A serving of apple will weigh more than a serving of fresh spinach, for example. Most fruits and veggies are 1/2C per serving, but leafy greens are a cup per serve

I JUST looked this up today. I get my values from Wolfram Alpha by searching "1/2 cup ____". It'll list a full "nutrition label" including grams. I use 1 cup for leafy veggies.
Cucumber: 67 g Celery: 60 g Green Leaf Lettuce: 56 g Apples: 92 g Bananas: 75 g Pears: 70 g
I'm sure you can find any other ones you want on Wolfram, too. Just make sure it's like, "1/2 cup sliced" :)
For my diet (I'm doing Zone proportions), a serving of fruit or vegetable has 9 grams of carbs. So some carb servings, like banana are small (3" piece) while things like romaine are large (6 cups).

I'm sure it depends on the fruit or vegetable. Since most are 1/2 C per serving you can "google" .5 C green beans equals how many grams. Or how many grams is an apple or medium banana.

I was just wondering how many grams is in a serving of veggies/fruit? Does anyone know this? I have not been able to find it in my searches. I've probably just overlooked it and figured someone here would know the answer. Thanks!
