What One Ounce of Nuts Looks Like

Know Your Nuts? What's in an Ounce

Nuts are one of the best foods you can nosh on because they're full of healthy fats, contain protein and fiber to fill you up, are cholesterol-free, and they're a great snack you can easily pack with you wherever you go. A serving size of nuts is one ounce, which is about a handful. Considering my handful and my hubby's handful look a lot different, I thought it'd be good to go over what exactly one ounce of nuts looks like. Take this quiz to see if you know.

I could definitely put-away 1 oz. of almonds, especially if they are cocoa covered. :-P

Great quiz... I love nuts, so it was nice to find out just how many I can snack on without going through my daily caloric allowance (yes, I like nuts that much ;-) ).

Ditto what Beaner said—I always thought a serving size was much smaller! Though, that's probably not a bad thing...lol

Wow, i thought a serving size was a handful for any type of nut. Good to know I was wrong.
