# How do you measure 2 tablespoons of veg?

I'm sure this has been asked before but I can't find the answer...

How DO you actually calculate 2 tbsp of something like broccoli?

The only accurate way would be to mush up your vegetables surely and I'm sure not many people do that, or do they?

So do most people just try and do a sensible guess?

How do you measure yours?

I just take a sensible serving... to be honest I usually just have mushrooms, but I do 2 tablespoons of cooked ones (which I slice up really thinly!!) therefore you can get more on the spoon (I know that is not a healthy way to look at it!!)

If you look at the calorific and carb content of veg it is minimal, a sensible sized portion will be fine and no risk to ketosis.

Thanks for the replies. I was just wondering if anyone actually did measure the veg, or just use a sensible guess

I'm not near AAM week yet but was just thinking ahead

I've seen mushrooms mentioned a couple of times...... are we allowed mushrooms on AAM or just 790????
