I often do for veggies I don't want to chop such as asparagus.
It's so important to measure in grams vs. ounces though because 8 oz of spinach does not equal 2 cups.
I like this website:
I am confused on how to measure frozen veggies as opposed to fresh.
I have been measuring 1 cup of frozen spinach to put into my protein shake every morning. I have been using an actual 1-cup measuring cup for this.
According the nutritiondata website, 1 cup of frozen spinach (unprepared) = 156g.
I have a digital kitchen scale, so this morning I measured out 156g of frozen spinach, and then wanted to see if that fit into a 1-cup measuring cup... it didn't! It turns out to be 1-3/4 cup!!
So, I'm wondering if measuring frozen spinach by grams is the correct way to do it, or if I should be measuring it in a 1-cup measuring cup like before.
Any advice would be helpful, because I don't want to eat too little or too much. Thanks!
