Digital Kitchen Scale & Nutritionist Consultation Giveaway

Here’s your chance to win a digital kitchen scale

In many other countries ingredients used in cooking and baking are weighed because 50 grams of all-purpose flour is always 50 grams of flour.

However, depending on how you measure it in a measuring cup, what you think is 1/2 cup flour one is actually 1/2 cup minus a tablespoon on the day you’re in a hurry and 1/2 cup plus one tablespoon on the day you didn’t level off your measuring cup with a knife blade. These subtleties can adversely effect baking results.

You wouldn’t want to incorrectly measure the flour on a batch of cookies and mess those up. The horrors.

There’s also the issue of portion sizes and weighing food and many people find scales helpful for that.

Also included in this giveaway is a free email consultation with a nutritionist on the SlimKicker team.

  1. Facebook like you!

  2. I would LOVE a food scale. I think it would give my baking the edge it needs (sometimes I’m lazy and scoop my flour, etc.) and it would also provide a great reality check in terms of portions, etc.

    thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  3. The ten wall squats a day challenge looks like something I should start doing!

  4. Tweeted!!! @lifeafterswim

  5. Pinned your eggs in a nest…perfect for Easter :)

  6. I would love a food scale to be more accurate with my measurements while baking!

  7. Hi Averie,
    I have been a vegan vegetarian for most of my life, and recently I have found pleasure in cooking and finding recipes that have been ‘healthier’ for my body. And finding your website has helped me so much, and I must say that of all the websites that I found, yours has been the most helpful and interesting!
    Thank you so very much for all your wonderful cooking tips and for sharing your day in the kitchen!
    Those challenges on Slimkicker.com look fantastic, and of all the challenges I think I’d take up the ’10 Wall Squats a day’ challenge because I’m not the fittest person in the world and could do with the exercise (and health benefits of the exercise).
    Thank you for the opportunity to win the digital kitchen scale and free email consultation.
    And thank you once again, Averie, for all the wonderful tips and recipes on your website!! :)
    Happy Cooking!
    -Amy :)

  8. I would like to do the no snacks after dinner challenge! Snacking after dinner is a habit I need to stop!

  9. My kitchen scale is on it’s last leg! It helps me with portion control, but especially with baking. So much more accurate!

  10. Hey Averie,
    I would really love to win the scale. Over the last year I was diagnosed as hypothyroid and put on 20lbs. I’m a 28 yr old woman and I feel like my young adulthood has gone out the window. My thyroid numbers are improving and I’m starting weightlifting and am determined to get my body back. I struggle financially due to a lack of health insurance but have chosen to invest in whole foods and my family helped me afford a gym membership. I’m so lucky to have their support. Anyways, I’ve just started tracking my food intake and need a scale for accuracy. Cups and spoons don’t cut it exactly. Thank you for your wonderful blog. It always puts a smile on my face.
    All the best to you and yours,
    Dani

  11. I do use a food scale for most of my baking, but mine isn’t very accurate anymore so I could definitely use a new one!

  12. I have a cookbook that is all by weight so I would use this often! Plus to bake because I know it is the absolute most accurate way to do so!

  13. I like you on Facebook!

  14. Ooh, I think the “Exercise before facebook” challenge is a great idea! I’m not really all that attached to it, but I automatically gravitate there whenever I open my laptop!

  15. I repinned your raw vegan cheesecake!

  16. I’m following you on Instagram!

  17. I think the scale would definitely help me to be more accurate with healthy portions..and make better cookies for my grandchildren!

  18. That Ozeri would be a huge improvement from the dial scale I’m using now, love the wide range and .05oz increments! I paid $5.19 for my current scale at Target and although it’s perfect for traveling since it’s so small and the weighing tray is actually a box that can hold the scale, the 1lb capacity and 5g increments aren’t great for certain recipes.

  20. I don’t currently but I would like to win one to keep portion control in check.

  21. If I had a food scale, life would be much easier. I’m on weight watchers and it’s hard to determine how many ounces a food item is just by looking at it!

  22. The ‘No Snacks After Dinner’ challenge sounds … challenging. It would be great to have to be accountable to someone besides myself!
