Signature Dining Measurements

A lot has changed in hospital care over the years. At UCLA Medical Center, one doesn’t just get a hospital tray, one has a ‘Signature Dining’ Menu (delivered by a Nutritional Care Assistant).

When I was a kid my teachers in school kept insisting our country would and should be metric by the time we were in college.

Obviously that hasn’t happened, and; as evidenced by UCLA’s Hospital Signature Dining Menu, the USA is just going to revert to biblical measurements (with one very peculiar addition).

PORTION SIZING:
Chicken, Meat, Fish= the PALM OF YOUR HAND
Vegetables= TWO CUPPED HANDS
Fruit= TWO CUPPED HANDS if grapes, berries, separate pieces
Fruit= SIZE OF A TENNIS BALL if a whole fruit
Baked Potato= COMPUTER MOUSE
Dinner Rolls, rice, starches= ONE CUPPED HAND or 1/2 TENNIS BALL
Cheese= SIZE OF YOUR THUMB
Beans, nuts, seeds= ONE CUPPED HAND
