Understanding Food Portions While Cooking for One

The Challenge?

Cooking alone can lead to overestimating or underestimating portion sizes, resulting in wasted food or overeating.

Portions Sizes

Protein: 3-4 ounces Carbohydrates: ½ cup Vegetables: ½ cup Fruits: ½ cup

Portion Control

Aim for a plate that’s half vegetables, a quarter lean protein, and a quarter grains.

Mindful Eating

Avoid distractions. Chew slowly. Listen to hunger cues. Stop when full.
