I don't worry so much about portion sizes when I add vegetables or fruit (except avocado) to my soups or other foods. Veggies like kale, broccoli, mushrooms and garlic fight cancer and provide other health benefits, so the more the merrier. Also, it's damn near hard to overdo it on the healthy stuff.
I do, however, weigh the 1 oz of nuts I eat daily, along with any other calorically dense foods.
Too bad I hadn't figured this out years ago.
