Measuring Veggies and fruit conversions

Saturday, March 17, 2012

From Keira-You can use this to estimate your weighed out veggies to cups (until you get comfortable figuring it out via sparks tracker):

I will give you an example - so say you ate 8 ounces of raw celery. You search celery, find the raw...enter in 8 ounces (it gives you other choices too) and then ask it to convert it to cups. 8 ounces of celery equals 2.25 cups of chopped celery. Hence my answer stating that even though 8 ounces equals a cup in liquids - it varies with veggies due to the density.

SO your 3 ounces of cabbage =1.25 cup shredded
3 ounces of broccoli = 1 cup chopped

basically sounds like you met your veggie quota
