I was VERY slow to jump on the food scale bandwagon, even through the two herbal cleanses my husband and I have done. I was convinced I didn’t need one. My sister in law got me one for Christmas this year, just in time to start a clean eating challenge with our gym. I was beyond shocked when I started weighing my food.
Measuring liquid is one thing, it’s going to come out pretty even each time. Weighing out one cup of flour or a half cup of cooked broccoli is a whole different story. There is a HUGE discrepancy between what you think is one cup and what actually WEIGHS one cup. I have also been using it for baking, to make sure I’m getting my liquid to dry ingredient ratio correct. These are a pretty inexpensive, but super awesome, kitchen tool to have on hand.
