Here is a quick picture of some potatoes we pulled from our garden to see different sizes! Which one do you think is the correct portion size for a serving of vegetables? I’ll give you a hint…its not on the left side of the picture!!
A quick reference for serving sizes!
Your Fist = 1 cup
Your Thumb = 1 Tablespoon
The Palm of your hand = a serving of meat, chicken or fish
A Tennis Ball = an ounce of cereal
A great rule of thumb for making your plate at any meal is 1/2 of the plate should be Fruit &/or Veggie, 1/4 of the plate be a protein and 1/4 of the plate be a starch!
