When tracking foods you often eat, set up a group with everything you MIGHT have. It is much quicker to remove the foods you did not eat that day using remove multiple foods than it is to enter extras you had for. So my roast dinner includes beef, pork, chicken and turkey and I simply remove the meats I did not have. This works really well for veggies and salad too.

i have been cutting up peaches and bananas into bite size chunks and freezing them on a cookie tray so they stay individual, also grapes and cherries. When put into plastic containers or small ziplock bags they stay apart allowing you to take out however many pieces of a fruit you want... to snack on (allows for easy tracking), for quick access and is great for smoothies and when blended with a little cottage cheese or yogourt, tastes just like icecream/sherbet.
I keep a magnetic dry erase board on the fridge. At the top I write the date and the words "Not tracked". As I drink water or eat anything,or exercise, I write it on the board. This has eliminated the stress of trying to remember what I have done between trips to my lap top. The first couple of days I was running back and forth trying to make sure input all the info.
