Default in need of measurement help! oz vs cups

I hate serving sizes sometimes!
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?

I use google calculation. You can just go to google and type in "1/4 cup to ounces" and it will convert it for you.

That won't work, though, for converting weights (oz for almonds, dry foods) to cups - only for liquid ounces to cups.

Check out this site: http://www.ez-calculators.com/measur...alculator.html
For liquid measurements, 1 cup = 8 oz. 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?

Default I think I figured it out

1/4 cup almonds -- 1 oz
From the following website
http://www.nutnutrition.com/gallery/qa_october.htm

Pasta Cut Serving Size 2 ounces (Uncooked)
equals --
Small Shell Macaroni about cup
Ziti about cup
Lasagne 2 pieces
Spaghetti 1/8 of a 16 oz. package
Noodles 1 cups

From the following website
http://www.lightnfluffy.com/nutrition/index.html

How this helps

Have you thought about buying a scale? 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.
