I've been wondering about the disagreement between different block charts regarding the amount of non-starchy veg that makes up a block. For example: CFJ#21 has 1.25 cups of brocolli to a block, Barry Sears website has 3 cups.

Does anyone know what the source of these differences is? I've been thinking it's probably something to do with how well cooked the veg is, i.e., cooking for longer would break down more cellulose and free up more available carbohydrate for the same volume of veg.

Is this anywhere near the mark?
