πŸ₯˜ Should you weigh your food before or after cooking? πŸ₯™

Posted by Eddie . on

You should weigh your food before cooking because this provides the most accurate and consistent way to measure the nutritional content of your food.Β  This is due to most food labels detailing the nutritional content of food prior to cooking them.
