Please help me with this cooking question.......it involves measuring veggies.
Today, for example, we had corn. The can says 1/2 cup has a weight of 125g. This serving has 11 carbs.
Well....when I measure out 1/2 cup and then weigh it.....because I'm obsessed about getting the exact number of carbs....the weight is totally different. The weight is about 84 grams.
Now I understand that measuring in cups isn't as accurate....with all the empty space...but with corn, or peas, there really isn't space.
I'm guessing the numbers on the can include water?
How do you measure for this???
I know right now Matthew's ratios are so high that it doesn't really matter, but in a few years when he's 1-5, it will make a big difference. I want to do it correctly from the start.
And truthfully, if I'm not giving him enough carbs, then I'm shooting him low. (That happened today.....)
So please help me......because I'm obsessed.....
Sidenote: No change in evening numbers.....
