I measure or weigh my portions of grapes, raisins, almonds, etc. according to the serving size on the package & put them into my hand to teach myself what a true serving looks & feels like. This way if I snack/graze, I have an idea of how many calories and servings I'm consuming of a certain food.
I have a food scale that I use, and I keep my measuring cups and spoons handy.
I keep measuring cups, measuring spoons, etc., in a bowl in on my countertop. This makes it easy for me to find the measurer I want, without digging through drawers or dish drainers for them. It makes meal and snack prep much faster for me. A food scale in a handy spot also helps!
Using measuring cups, spoons, and a food scale help keep calorie and nutrient counts more accurate on days that I use the food tracker.
