My digital food scale gives me so much better accuracy. It measures in ounces or grams. The zero feature allows me to zero out my container, weigh my first ingredient, zero again, weigh the 2nd ingredient, zero again and so on until I have everything I will use in that dish. I simply write down each weight as I go. The scale also has nutritional infor on over 1000 foods. Well worth the $50 at Bed Bath and Beyond.
Can't tolerate the taste of plain water but know you need to get those 64 oz/day .... here is the product for you! A single squirt of this liquid water enhancer in a 16.9 oz bottle of water makes the most refreshing drink. If you like deeper flavor, use another squirt or two.
Restoring electrolytes during hot weather activities
Since the weather is really hot sometimes water alone is not enough when you're doing activities that make you sweat a lot. I found Powerade Zero which has electrolytes and has zero calories. I drink some of it when hiking in the heat along with water to make sure I'm not just flushing all the electrolytes out of my system. Sweating and water alone sometimes depletes your system so this is a great tasting and zero cal way to make sure electrolytes are restored.
