I bought myself a new food scale to weigh the food I am eating for better tracking. I bought the new Weight Watchers' scale because I'm also doing Weight Watchers -- and the scale is really easy to use and can be set for grams or ounces. Plus, the newness of the scale makes things fun.

Digital Food Scale & Measuring Spoons on Kitchen Counter.
I keep a small Tray on the kitchen counter,with The Digital Food Scale ,several Measuring Cups,and 2 sets of Measuring Spoons.I am much more diciplined to use all these tools when there is Multiple Sets,and within easy reach,no need to wash/rinse utensils after each use.Also when measuring "Tare" on The Food Scale,sometimes i use a piece of "Saran Wrap" instead of a plate for easy use and clean up.25848553

My Kitchen FOOD SCALE!!! WEIGH & MEASURE it is!!!! 192
I decided when I began this journey that I MUST be firm with myself & weigh & measure EVERY tiny morsel From experience I've discovered that I cannot get healthy based on what value I THINK a food has! I am religiously using the SP food calculator. As a result, I have NOT gone over my calories once!
I keep measuring cups, measuring spoons, etc., in a bowl in on my countertop. This makes it easy for me to find the measurer I want, without digging through drawers or dish drainers for them. It makes meal and snack prep much faster for me. A food scale in a handy spot also helps!
Using measuring cups, spoons, and a food scale help keep calorie and nutrient counts more accurate on days that I use the food tracker.
