 05 Jan 2009 04:28 PM I have a bag of frozen mixed berries (strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and raspberries) how do I figure how much to have as a snack with 1/4 c of cottage cheese and some slivered almonds?? Thanks to all who can help! Kelly

 05 Jan 2009 05:23 PM Kelly, I'd break it down like this: 1 block = .75C blackberries, .5C blueberries, 1C strawberries, or 1C raspberries When you pour a scoop out, is it truly a mixture or does it lean more toward one fruit than another? Unless there were a ton of blueberries, I'd lean toward .75C - just under 1C of the fruit mixture. Hope this helps. Happy Zoning! Karen Happy Zoning!Karen

 05 Jan 2009 07:23 PM Kelly, you could also get information from the bag that the fruit came from. I am sure there must be a nutritional label, so you can use the bag to determine the serving size for a block. Just remember that a block of carb is 9 grams of net carbs (total carbs minus fiber = net carb). Hope that helps, too! CranberrycatWe don't own the earth; we borrow it from our children.

 05 Jan 2009 07:29 PM Well, I wasn't sure how to figure it for a mixture, instead of just one kind of fruit. I didn't see any kind of mixture on the blocks list. Sorry if all these questions are getting redundant...all of this kind of blows my mind! Kelly
