I like to cook & bake but hate measuring things like flour & olive oil - I always make a mess. So today I used my food scale to see just how much a cup of flour weighs, a Tbl of oil, etc. & wrote all the weights & measures a 3x5 card, which is now taped to the inside of the cupboard door. Now I can just put the mixing bowl or pot/pan on the scale & add the ingredients without having to spill flour everywhere trying to get it in the measuring cup.
Buy a digital scale to help you with food tracking!
I used to hate tracking, I thought tracking the food I eat makes me obsessed with food and makes me end up eating more, but buying a digital scale helped me A LOT. Now I am obsessed to track everything I eat. I discovered 1200 calories a day is a lot if you eat healthy, I find myself in the evening thinking what more should I eat to reach the minimum of 1200 cal/day... so buy a scale, search the food or look on the labels to see the calories and enjoy!
