Is it a whole meal?

It looks like 1.75 cups. Is it a meal? I suppose it dépends on what the fruits are and if your other meals include the other things not found in those fruits, or not genenrally in fruits.

amount, in grams (g) amount, in ounces (oz)
¾ cup 130 g 4.6 oz
7/8 cup 155 g 5.4 oz
1 cup 175 g 6.2 oz
2 cups 350 g 12.3 oz

@flo 14 oz does not translate to a fixed measurement in cups, it depends entirely what you are measuring. 14 oz of cherries would not measure exactly the same in cups as 14 ounces of watermelon for instance.

@all Order was filling. was Apples, bananas, strawberries, oranges, kiwi fruit, melon and grapes. Am happy with my order.

7/8ths of a pound.

Nearly a pound of anything edible would be a meal.

That doesn’t make it wortwhile as a meal, because it would be lacking in complete nutrients.

Roughly 1 & ¾ cup of chopped fruit. Of course, the smaller you cut the fruit, the more weight you can get in a cup. IF the weight of the fruit is the important part, you might want to invest in a scale. They’re not that expensive on Amazon. Yes, Amazon has some expensive scales, but they also have some excellent inexpensive ones too…just depends on what you actually need!!!

Well, if you eat enough to fill you up then it’s a meal. There is no law that says you have to have X amount of this that and the other with every single meal. We, as a species, wouldn’t have survived this long if that was true.
I would think that balancing out what you eat over the course of a week, or even longer, would be just fine.

@Adagio I understand. I just looked at 2 to the search result as my source I didn’t think about it.
