    What does 1 tablespoon of peanut butter look like?

    I have a huge problem with measuring stuff.

    Anyone got a pic of what one tablespoon of peanut butter and what ONE CUP of cooked rice would look like?

    You should invest in some measuring cups but if you have a tablespoon, put some PB on it and level it out. That's about 1 tbsp. A heaped tablespoon is much more than just 1 portion.

    Two tbsps of pb are the size of a golf ball so one tbsp would be half the size of a golf ball.

    I think the easiest way to measure what I am going to eat is just to use a digital scale. The less dirty dishes the better.

    You don't clean your scale?

    But I agree though, digital scales are much more precise

    I agree. 1 tbsp of peanut butter is SO small. Actually 1 generous tsp is about a tbsp.

    I've had a couple digital scales, just get one that has both grams and ounces min. Some have a separate zeroing button from the off button too (mine does). Should be no more than 20-30 USD.

    technically speaking I believe 3 tsps is a tablespoon. so if you took 3 level spoonfuls of a regular spoon, that should be about right. getting measuring cups is your best bet though, they're pretty cheap and will come in handy very often

    Most digital scales are within 2 grams. I bought one in Aus recently for $40 AUS, so about 35US.

    Just go to walmart.

    IMO, it is an essential device whilst cutting if one wants to consume almonds, PB, flaxmeal, etc, otherwise your guesses could be very wrong.

    I even use it for chicken/kangaroo/sweet potato/oats now, although I don't worry for non-starchy veggies (does anyone here weigh brocolli - would be impressive dedication!!).

    And yes, a 25 gram serve of PB is not very much. Kinda disappointing really.

    lol, I usually don't have to. If I'm weighting out something like 48 grams of peanut butter I'll measure the weight of a metal spoon and then use that spoon to dig out peanut butter until I get the correct weight. That way only 1 thing needs washing.

    I got my digital scale at Walmart for about $30 USD. It was definitely worth it.

    I got mine at target. It weighs grams and ounces and has a tare button (zeros it out). It's not on the page of this link but here are a few.

    http://www.target.com/gp/search/602-...bx_1_1&x=0&y=0

    also go to amazon and search for food scale. Happy shopping- if you spend more than $25 you should get free shipping.

    I bought 1/2 and 2/3 tbsp spoons and use them instead when I'm not counting calories because I tend to do the same thing.

    When I'm counting, I'm much more controlled.

    lol

    You guys actually weigh your pb? Why not just use a regular measuring spoon that is accurate?

    I just never thought anyone did this.

    its faster than a measuring spoon as you don't have to level it. Well, I guess if you keep it in the fridge and it is firm, I mean.

    That's likely 2 tbsp.

    If you take 1 tsp like the kind you use to stir coffee, and heap it a bit, it will be about a tbsp.

    So strict!

    I just put spoon inside and grab pb and push against the glass wall of jar to level it. Works good or use finger and lick it.

    I even use it for chicken/kangaroo/sweet potato/oats now, although I don't worry for non-starchy veggies (does anyone here weigh brocolli - would be impressive dedication!!).

    And yes, a 25 gram serve of PB is not very much. Kinda disappointing really.
    How do you keep the 'roo from bouncing around & distorting the read?
