Household Help

For portion sizes on-the-go
Think stuff around the house--

Cards, CD, a tennis ball,
A bulb or computer mouse:

Have a deck of cards in mind
For three ounces of fish or meat.

If a bagel covers your Groban CD,
It’s a large one, not petite!

Ordering coleslaw with your meal?
Share some with your spouse,

Especially if the serving bowl
Is bigger than a “mouse.”

A tennis ball is about the size
Of a cup of steaming rice,

A light bulb can illuminate
A large potato, to be precise.

Don’t be a portion-guesser
You have tools to estimate,

Want a larger serving?
Use a smaller plate!
