I put a small amount of Kerrygold butter (the best by the way) on my 1 piece of toast in the morning. How should I measure it?

    Digital food scale.
    Yep, this.

    Digital food scale.

    But it's not even a measurable amount. Like maybe less than half a teaspoon.

    Food scales measure in grams. Like Jruzer said. I'll bet it was more than a half teaspoon. One teaspoon is about 35/40 calories, so log it as 1/2 teaspoon and move on.

    Three teaspoons in a tablespoon.

    Yep, that's what I did.

    It probably weighs a few grams. A teaspoon of butter is 5 g.
    I tend to log anywhere between 4g-10g of butter, depending on what I’m using it for. Sometimes more if I’m baking.

    I put my plate on the scale, press tare, then put my slice of butter on the plate. And always weigh in grams!

    These negligible amounts add up REAL quick throughout the day or week :)

    This, exactly.

    Me too! Same with peanut butter and jam.

    When you can no longer see bread, that's 1 serving.

    I think that's for peanut butter... :bigsmile:
