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.
