I took the portion size quiz and got 11 out 16. I need to study the sizes again.

You are right, this is a good review of things we should already know.

I am bumping this to the top as we have a lot of new member and at least half of them are new to spark people. There are links worth reviewing, if you haven't done so for a few months, on the very first post.

I need to review them too.
It is too easy to try to eat "cheap" as opposed to healthy. We need to keep in mind, that being healthy has an end result of being frugal.

I have a food scale. I should use it. It is not electronic, but it may remind me to watch my portion-distortion!

14 of 16 and I was a little bit unsure of a couple others. An index card and a deck of cards are pretty close. But I did guess right. At the Spark convention in Cincinatti one of the coaches showed us the plate portions. A pretty good review though.

There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as if everything is.

Knowing is not enough, we must apply. Willing is not enough, we must do.

Well, I have to make room for humble pie in my nutrition today. I only got 10 right out of the 16.

I got 14 out of 16. I know I only missed two, but I should have known better on the two incorrect choices.

I prefer to weigh my food in order to establish proper portion sizes. Since purchasing an electronic kitchen scale and regularly weighing my food, I have become more familiar and better aware of proper portions and acceptable weights.

9 out of 16. Most enlightening to me was the fruit juice servings--only 6 oz. I probably go 12-24oz in a day. However, this is usually the only way I get fruit--I know--not a good idea! emoticon
