If I eat 1/4 cup of almonds how many oz is that? If I eat 1 cup of noodles how many oz (pre cooked) is that? I'm going nuts here... is there a web site that could help out? __________________ My facebook profile next weight goal:

But things get tricky for dry measurements; for example, a pint of a given dry product equates to greater than one pint of a liquid product (~1.16 pints or so). I don't have a really good answer for you, as I tend to estimate and would say that your almonds would be 2 oz. (1 cup = 8 oz., so divide both by 4) and the noodles would be 8 oz. Does anyone get more exact than this, given the issue of the products being 'dry' and thus there being air pockets taken into account when measuring?

You can get ounces that way and then count how many almonds that translates into when you're away from your scale. I love my scale - mostly because I bake and weighing flour is a lot more accurate than measuring it.
