When out and about and you are not sure about your serving sizes then “Talk to Your Hand” to figure out your serving sizes.

As a general rule:

1. Fist (1 cup): Use your fist to judge two servings of cooked pasta, rice or any other grain.

2. Palm (3 oz to 6oz): Use your palm to judge the size of meat. Small palms measure about 3-4 oz and bigger
palms about 5 to 6 oz.

3. Thumb (1 tsp): Use the tip of your thumb to measure a pat of butter. Use the length from the knuckle of
your thumb to its tip to judge a serving of salad dressing (1Tbsp).

4. Three fingers (4 fl. oz): Hold a wine glass from the stem while placing three fingers horizontally along
the side. This is approximately one serving of wine.
