How to Destroy Your Food Scale in One Easy Step
Whoops. I started weighing out my food in September, following the realization that I was eyeballing portions very, shall we say, kindly for quite some time. I always thought a food scale toed the line of obsessive compulsive eating, but I was surprised at how easily and logically it fit into my food prep now that I'm on the Renaissance Periodization plan.
But I also have a pro tip for you regarding that.
Your scale does not like to get wet.
Because a) it's electronic. Even though b) you can weigh gross things with it, things that your mother told you ooze life-halting germs on whatever it touches, like raw chicken, you c) should put that stuff in a bowl first because d) you won't be tempted to scrub it over zealously with a wet sponge, which e) will immediately kill your scale.
So even though I am the one who in fact inserted the batteries and nothing about its construction suggests it can be submerged in water, that's basically what I did.
On a positive note, I'm pretty sure my eyeball game has improved a lot.
