Hand Guide for Food Measurement and Portion Control

There are plenty of recommended measurements for food portions, but it is not exactly easy to follow them through simply because there is no easy way to keep all the measuring tools close. You can though always have your hand handy and use it to make very good approximations of how much your portion and serving should be. This image by GuardYourHealth serves as a simple guide for some basic measurements, including a cup, tablespoon, and teaspoon; all in your hand.

Handimals: Realistic Animal Hand Paintings

As a kid I found pleasure and pride in the shadow animals I could make using my hands. That, like a lot of other things got lost as I grew up, but the sheer talent of Italian illustrator Guido Daniele makes me want to take the plunge again. His works are extraordinarily realistic, and they aren’t just some shadow animals either, these are animals painted on hands and done so convincingly, they could be real.
