I think we often are not sure about portions when it comes to preparing and eating our meals.  I wanted to share with you this Guide to Portion Sizes.

Full Outstretched Hand = 2 cups of cooked pasta

Palm = 3 ounces of meat

A Fist = 1 cup of pasta or cereal, 1 cup of green salad, 1 medium sized fruit or one cup cut- up fruit

One Cupped Hand = 1 ounce nuts or small candies

Two Cupped Hands = 1 ounce chips or pretzels

One Thumb = 1 ounce of cheese OR 1 Tablespoon peanut butter

Thumb Tip = 1 teaspoon of oil, margarine or butter

Two Thumbs = 2 ounces or 2 tablespoons

I hope this helps when you don’t have a scale handy as an alternative to measuring your portions.
