My hand holds exactly 1/4 cup of almonds. I grabbed a handful of almonds the other day and wanted to know how much to put on my Nutrition tracker. I grabed a measuring cup and, after depositing my little haul inside, found that it was exactly 1/4 cup. A serving. So... I carry this handy measuring device with me everywhere I go. How much does your hand hold?

An ice cream serving is usually 1/2 cup. Put it into a 1/4 Measuring Cup & eat it from there. It satisfies my taste buds & tricks my fat craving demons all at the same time. If I want more, I dish up another 1/4 cup. It feels like I'm eating seconds but really it's only 1 serving
Equipment Needed: 1/4 Measuring Cup, spoon
