Health Tip for the Day

*** Today's Tip:  PROPER PORTION SIZE IS IN YOUR HANDS             

Eating smaller portions of food is one of the easiest ways to cut back on calories. Knowing serving sizes can help prevent overeating. When you're not sure about serving size, use your hand as a guide. A healthy portion of meat, poultry or fish is about the size of an open palm. One serving (one cup) of most ready-to-eat cereal is about the size of a fist. One serving (one half-cup) of cooked rice or pasta is about a handful. A serving (one tablespoon) of peanut butter is about the size of a thumb.
