Is That Really A Portion?

Welcome to Is That Really A Portion where we will decide if that really is a portion.

Post the item and the portion size as given on the packaging (pictures encouraged but not required) and DiS will decide if that is really a portion.

I went into this thinking listed portion sizes would be under what I would consider a portion size and have, for the most part, been pleasantly surprised. But it what does DiS think?

Cereal suggested portions are, frankly, pathetic

They are very sweet.

Not binned any, all onto clean spoons, plates etc and then back into packaging, apart from butter which I’ll have with lunch.

Chorizo was on the chopping board last, obviously.

At least 2 boxes from a cereal variety pack to make one portion when I was a wee lad. 3 if we were having an active day

Maybe have a boiled egg and a glass of oj too for a balanced breakfast?

Portions can be eaten as a side dish or as a light meal

Actually I did have a few of the pistachios

Regularly make a meal based on a serves 4-6 recipe and will eat it in one sitting between 2 of us. Portions are a scam
