The Eat Smart Digital Kitchen Scale is a great addition to any kitchen.
When it comes to eating right, portion control is probably the hardest thing for me. It’s really easy to load my plate up with too much. Even if I try to stick to a serving size, it’s difficult to eyeball how much is just enough.
I used my Eat Smart Scale to measure out portion sizes, and I was really surprised by the difference between what I thought was the right amount of food, and what it really was.
For example I used the scale to weigh some crackers:
This is the hand full I grabbed out of the box to begin with:
Nine crackers all together.
This is the actual serving size after I weighed them:
My original handful was almost twice the size of a serving. No wonder my pants aren’t getting any smaller! All those extra crackers go right to my hips.
It is kind of a pain to weigh out everything you eat, but if I can fit back into those clothes hanging in the back of my closet, it’s worth it. And the East Smart actually makes it pretty simple. It’s small, light and battery operated, so I can move it around anywhere in my kitchen. I can even take it to the dinner table with me. It weighs in grams, ounces, kilograms and pounds. Also, you can set the tare weight so you can weigh food on a plate or in a bowl.
The Eat Smart Digital Scale has other uses in the kitchen as well.
I often buy meat in bulk packages to save money. When I get it home, I repackage it for the freezer in smaller amounts for making meals. I used to just guess, but now I use my Eat Smart to divide it evenly into 1 lb. portions.
Sometimes recipes list ingredients in grams or ounces instead of cups and tablespoons. I had to convert the measurements before. Now I can just weigh out the ingredients with my East Smart.
The Eat Smart Digital Kitchen Scale is available at Amazon.com.
