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.

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
The Digital Food Scale is my best friend!30
I've been keeping a digital food scale on my counter with an empty bowl on top for 2 weeks now. Every time I think of eating something or when I'm ready for a meal - I weigh it first. This is really keeping my portion control in check.
Even if I'm taking food with me on the go, I weigh it first, put it in a container, track it - and I feel commited for the day with my tracking.
