These scales are a great addition to your kitchen, even if your not
dieting. Its so easy to weigh something and get all the nutritional
information by pushing the required button, be it calories, carbs,
cholesterol, protein, fat, sat fat or sodium.
Good to educate your kids on the nutritional aspect of food.
I've tested out several items, a tomato, some almond nuts, broccoli,
cheese triangle and bread. What surprised me was nearly all the
manufactures weights were under what this and my other scales read.
What this means is the calories stated on the packet were under as well.
One thing I will do is copy the Food Codes into a document I can read; I'm old.
I can then highlight those I use and leave room to enter the amount (weight) I use
and calories/carbs so I can just look them up next time I make my stew or pie.
I think this is going to be a very useful tool around the kitchen.
You can always amaze your friends by telling them how many calories are in a
banana weighing 197g (175 Kcal) or a potato weighing 399g (14.1oz) (231 Kcals).
I think I've just proved that a little knowledge is a dangerous thing.
