How many grams in a portion of ___
Monday, August 01, 2011
Right now we are having a freggies challenge in the 5% Challenge Spark Team.
Right now we have fresh cucumbers!
I googled, "how many grams in a portion of cucumbers" and came up with several hits, the best one having a calculator that can also be downloaded!
You can look on the USDA website and see how many grams they reckon a cup would hold of most foods:
or download it to use when not online:
It's not perfect - didn't work for my figs -
but it works for pineapple, strawberries, tomatoes and cucumbers
BTW, cucumbers with peel, 1/2 cup = 52 grams.
Now you know where all my freggie portions are coming from - and I omitted 2 yesterday when I posted 15 instead of 17.
This is the food scale I am using for 2 years now and loving it!
