I recently decided to invest in a digital food scale. Question - do you weigh meat before or after it's cooked. I always thought you would measure pre-cooked - but that doesn't exactly work for the ham I cooked for Easter dinner? Does it make much difference?View Thread
That's what I had been doing, up until yesterday. I let my daughter decided what was for dinner for Easter and she wanted ham. I couldn't weigh my portion until I carved it - so raw didn't work... which made me start wondering if I should always weigh it cooked - or only when you had to.
Okay. I think I will use raw weight whenever I can. Then on those things that I have to use a cooked weight, like ham, I will factor in the loss from cooking. I use My Daily Plate on livestrong.com and haven't seem the option to count cooked vs. raw. But, I've been using that sight for years and don't plan to change any time soon.
Thank you for your help. I knew exactly who to go to.View Thread
Thank you Judy - but that brings a new question. What size are you talking about when you add 2 oz? Adding that to a 4oz portion or an 8oz portion of cooked food is a big difference. I wouldn't think I would want to add the same to both...View Thread
I love Zumba. I go every week. The instructor that teaches my class makes sure to tell everyone to modify moves if you need to. That way you avoid injury or stress on sensitive joints. Just keep moving. I have not tried any at-home videos though.View Thread
My favorite for the frozen veggies is a Wal-Mart generic (Great Value). It broccoli stir-fry vegetable. It has broccoli, cauliflower, corn, red peppers, water chestnuts, peas.... but no sauce, no butter. Can't say as I checked for preservatives though. And I think it's $1.25.View Thread
