Food Bar Guessing Game

I eat out a lot. I’m working on making healthy choices when I’m away from home. And serving myself smaller portions.
This is what I had had for breakfast yesterday:

Three tater tots

Lowfat cottage cheese with strawberries halves, blueberries and raw sunflower seeds

Scrambled eggs with cheddar cheese, bell peppers and mushrooms cooked in olive oil

I find it frustrating that I’m not good at eye-balling portions at food bars. How many eggs did I dish up? If I think in terms of visualizing measuring cups, does one egg equal 1/4 cup?
