It Might Surprise You to Know What a “Portion” is!

You have a bowl and you fill it to the brim and you think that you’re having a “serving”.

It may surprise you to know that most recommended “serving” sizes are much smaller than you think.

Not to mention the fact that everything from plates to cups are super-sized these days, we are misled into believing that we are eating a portion when in fact we are eating 2,3,or 6 times what we need!

Cereal 1 cup = a baseball
Salad Dressing 2 Tbsp. = a shot glass
Cheese 1 oz. = a golf ball
Nuts 1 oz. = 1 cupped palm
Hamburger 3 oz = mayo jar lid
Beef 3 oz. = deck of cards
Rice 1/2 c = ice cream scoop
Sweet Potato = computer mouse
Butter 1 tsp = a waterbottle cap
Pasta 1/2 cup = a tennis ball
