I went out today and bought myself a food scale. Now I can finally weigh my food and post more accurate recipes. As a Kurd we usually do not measure our ingredients and just put in the amounts we see fit. I really like that about our cooking habits, it makes me feel closer to the food and gives me a sense of control. I think it is also a way to throw yourself into cooking and decide for yourself what you wish to emphasise in a dish.
However, if I want to eat healthier and add less carbs to my food I have to be aware of how much of that stuff goes into my cooking! So there you have it ladies and gents,I now am a proud owner of a scale! Now I have to figure out what to cook tomorrow.
