SERVING SIZES There’s a key to understanding the concept of serving sizes: Guesstimate. (Yes, guess!) GUESSTIMATING TIPS A SERVING IS DIFFERENT FROM A HELPING AND/OR A PORTION
A helping/portion (like half a barbecued chicken) may actually count for two or three servings of poultry.
A great big, crispy salad with ruffly lettuce, cherry tomatoes, onions, green peppers, and carrots may count as two or three servings of vegetables.
A turkey sandwich with lettuce, sliced tomatoes, and low-fat cheese, a bowl of beef vegetable soup, a carne asada burrito, pasta primavera, falafel, chicken chow meinall of these are combo foods and count as servings but in different groups.
You really have to guesstimate with combo foods!
How do you accurately measure a cup of something that can’t fit into a cup? You can’t. So don’t. And don’t stress about it.
HOCKEY PUCK, DECK OF CARDS, TENNIS BALL, AND A TUBE OF LIPSTICK?
Familiar objects? These can help give you a general idea about serving sizes.
