Default Measuring broccoli, how much is 1 cup?

Hey guys,

I weigh pretty much all my foods and log them into fitday, but i've never known exactly how much broccoli i'm getting because it is usually measured by cups.

Maybe i'm missing something, but how can we measure something like broccoli in cups? I can understand liquids and powders, but solid foods?

Is there anyway to just measure it in grams?

Someone enlighten me please =)

i'm guessing that would be chopped broccoli, not turned into powder or super fine, but just chopped the heads off and filled to a cup.

i wouldn't worry about it too much, though.
the difference between would be very marginal and almost insignificant, in my opinion.

according to http://whfoods.org/genpage.php?tname...p;dbid=9#descr

1 cup of broccoli is 156 grams

Powdered broccoli? What about compressed broccoli cubes?

Okay, this is what I do...

I go to nutritiondata.com

There I type in raw broccoli. I click on the result. I can then click on 1 cup, 1 ounce, 100 grams, etc. I go to 1 ounce. I find out its 10 calories for an ounce. Then I weigh my broccoli on my food scale before doing anything to it. So if I have 6 ounces, its 60 calories. Then I go to my fitday and make whichever measurement 60 calories. Like, if it have to, I'll put .85 of a cup or .5 or 1.7 or whatever. Cause the macros will be the same, its just the calories you need to be careful with.

I hope I understood your question correctly.

Yes, you certainly did. Thanks for the tip. I actually have that site in my favorites and just forgot about it. That's exactly what I was trying to do - find a way to measure raw broccoli (not powdered or compressed) in grams.

Alright, glad I can help.

Fitday is my best friend, but he pisses me off sometimes. There's no elliptical in the activities section!
