    Am loving SS+, I never realized that skinless chicken and veg could taste so good:D.

    Am I alone in weighing my veg? I have worked out that 30g of Asparagus is about two big spears, 30g of watercress is about a bowlful:D, 30g of romaine lettuce is not a lot lol.

    Last night I had a yearning for Broccoli 30g was one floret lol so I forgot it and had the watercress again which equals a bowlful:D

    So tell me people am I turning into an Anal Retentive?

    Whatever it is working 9lbs loss last week and 5.5 this week so over a stone in 2 weeks :D:D

    I use to have 3 broccoli florets and 2 cauliflower so I was very bad and if it was lettuce I'd have a plateful, I did use to weigh my chicken though.

    Love the idea - but where's this 30g notion coming from? I thought we were supposed to measure veg in terms of tablespoons...?

    Hey Lily,

    Yep I know but after trying and failing to get an accurate tablespoon of Rocket:D which frankly could be a suitable sport for a Children In Need Fund raiser I found this on t'interweb

    Equivalents and Measures

    Dry Measure Equivalents

    3 teaspoons 1 tablespoon 1/2 ounce 14.3 grams
    2 tablespoons 1/8 cup 1 ounce 28.3 grams

    I kind of reckoned that 1.7 grams was neither her nor there so rounded up to 30g.

    I have a great pair of Salter flat digital scales and it is much easier than the good old tablespoon measurement.

    Guess?!
    The current Steps Programme booklet gives weights as well as tablespoons, Lily:

    The metric value of a imperial tablespoon is 15 ml of liquid or 15 g of solids.....

    So SS+ gets 30g of veg, while 810 gets 45g.

    Good sums, Nevada!

    Oooh, I've learnt something today! :D Gosh, that makes it much easier. I never could understand the logic of making us measure broccoli florets in tablespoons! Always made me want to see how many I could balance on the spoon... :D :D :D

    Thanks Lesly!
