Check out this Guide to Portion Sizes. 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.
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.
