make that 2 questions!

When it refers to half a cup is that like a tea cup or mug or is it a weight i dont know about i know years ago my mum had a cookbook that weighed stuff in cups and it turned out to be a measurement.


a "cup" is 250ml in our measurements.

Try your local £1 shop, they had sets of all cups and measuring spoons in funky neon colours last week. Or if stuck, use a measuring jug in the interim.

You can find "weight" carb coverters and I know that the newest version of Atkins for the UK had the grams in the allowable salad lists. I think the allowable salads was like 230- 340g a day of certain veggies.
The US cup measure I bought back from Canada is larger than ours, mine equated more to a coffee mug over here. Squash is OK but not on induction I don't think. I'd have to go and check that one though. I think it's not allowed until OWL.
I went and checked it, BNS is one of the higher carb squashes, here is everything you wanted to know about squashes.
