Your portion survey results!

You guys gave some very  good guesses! The results were a little shocking though.
Everyone got the first question. One slice of bread is considered a serving. Question number 2 got mixed results. I think I may have of tricked you =) 2 servings of peanut butter would be 2 tablespoons, where, of course, 1 serving would be 1 tablespoon. Question 3 got a 50/50-mostly because I didn't even give you the correct answer choice! Whoops. A serving of RAW veggies is 1 cup. When cooked a serving is about 1/2 cup for most veggies. Only 1 person got question 4 correct. Half of a small banana is considered one serving. I'm very proud of the responses to question 5. Half of you got it right. A serving of most juices is 4 oz (1/2).

Thanks for taking the survey. That was fun, I'll do more in the near future!!

    1. Juice can be good for the health, but just like all foods and beverages we must watch the portions. Choosing a juice is a taste preference, but for health benefits we always need to make sure it says 100% fruit juice on the container. Or we may just be ingesting lots of flavored added sugars and not the natural sugar from the fruit! Buying a juicer is a great investment!
      As far as diet is concern, balance is best. Many fruits and veggies, low-fat dairy products, nutrient-rich fats like olive oil and canola oil, whole grains, lean meat and yes, even an occasional piece of cake!
      Thank you for your comment! And I look forward to more!
