If you don't have the time to go to the library or are too impatient to re-learn, like many people probably are, go to Google and type in tbsp to cups online converter or something similar. If you have a smart phone, you can download a free app that can do the conversions. I downloaded one onto my phone. I like to use the rowing machine as part of my workout routine. I like knowing my distance in miles and not meters (which is typical for rowing). I do all my cardio early in the morning (really early - before or around sunrise) and it is too early for me to be think about converting meters to miles. Anyway, it works for me. As a side note, I am one of those impatient people and I am a wildlife biologist...so you'd probably think that doing conversions would be easy to remember.

As a middle school math teacher I loved your post ANARIE emoticon

You are capable of more than you know. Choose a goal that seems right for you and strive to be the best, however hard the path. Aim high. Behave honorably. Prepare to be alone at times, and to endure failure. Persist! The world needs all you can give.

Also, 2 TBS is half of 1/4 cup. If you're looking at something that says "serving (1/4 cup)", you can type in .5 instead of 1 serving.

If all of this is confusing, Google "converting fractions to decimals" or borrow a 6th grade math book from the library. This is stuff you knew in school but have forgotten, and it won't take more than an hour or so to re-learn it. It comes in really handy and saves time in the long run. (Losing weight also makes you good at math! Who knew?)

There are no other choices in the drop down? Only cup? If not, then you will just have to use decimals. There are 16 tablespoons in 1 cup. 2/16 = 0.125 - that's how much of a cup 2 tbsp are

2 tbsp is equal to .125 of a cup - you can enter it as such and it will be more accurate.

Do something everyday that your future self will thank you for.

Hi there
When I enter the amount of quinoa I cook to my tracker, I would like to be able to enter 2 tbsp instead of the quarter cup that is suggested in the choices; at the moment I have to enter the quarter cup and it puts me over the top of my daily lunch calories. Any ideas?
