I have been trying to keep track of what I am eating as well as weighing everything that I eat.
I have been reading all the information on what a serving of each type of food is. However, when it comes to fruits and vegetables things are as clear as to exactly what a serving weighs.
I have found information that states:
A standard serve of vegetables is 75 grams or:
½ cup cooked green or orange vegetables (for example, broccoli, spinach, carrots or pumpkin)
½ cup cooked dried or canned beans, peas or lentils
1 cup leafy or raw salad vegetables
½ cup sweet corn
½ medium potato or other starchy vegetables (sweet potato, taro or cassava)
1 medium tomato
Which is fine, but I weigh all of my food and I will be darned if I can find information anywhere that states exactly what a cup of a leafy green weighs (such as raw spinach, kale, romaine, cabbage). What is considered to be the weight of a medium tomato, potato or any other fruit or vegetable. What is a serving size for spaghetti squash and things like that. It does seem to get a bit confusing when it comes to these foods
I really want to make sure that I am recording these foods correctly as well as making sure I am getting all of my servings of fruits and vegetables each day.
As I stated, I do weigh everything that I put onto my plate and would greatly appreciate any information that anyone might have or if anyone would know where I can find this type of information.
Thanks So Very Much
