I always weigh my meats raw or use the weight on the packaging and divide up accordingly.
For veggies, which usually call for measurement instead of weight, I measure after cooking, 1 cup raw broccoli becomes 2/3 cup cooked so I can squeeze in a wee bit more.
If it is a plant, eat it, if it comes from a plant, don't!
