    ... I work amidst multiple labs and am often deeply amused to find scales (and refrigerators) in the building labeled "FOOD," "NOT FOR FOOD."

    Excellent post and thanks for bumping! Learning a lot here about weighing food. Some of these tips will save some time cuz dang....I’m spending so much time weighing, measuring and logging lol. But I’m a newbie so I guess it will get faster.

    Yes, it does get faster! I am still learning through tips and tricks on here, but I am doing much better than I did when I first started! And like others have mentioned, in time you get pretty good at guesstimating - makes it a fun game...

    I am in the market for a larger scale. Mine maxes out at 5lbs which is fine and dandy for single portions and meals, but when I cook 5-6 qts of soup in a solid stainless steel or cast iron pot it’s just not happening.

    I made a crockpot beef stew yesterday, adding the ingredients into a MFP recipe. My crockpot is a 6 qt so I just transferred the 6 quarts into cup servings to determine the calories.
