I wanted to confirm the proper way to measure/weigh food.
1.Do you measure food uncooked or cooked ie 100gm of chicken breast or 1 cup of oats.
2.If I was to cook 1kg of beef mince meat how do i measure the small portions per meal.
Thanks in advance
Depends on cooking methods - generally i prefer methods where everything is controlled… i.e. dry frying, hot pots, etc. How I would calculate my beef stats:
Weigh 1kg of beef
Find stats for 100g raw beef, multiply up so its for 1kg for total stats for the whole bit of meat.
Divide beef up into 5 portions
Divide the uncooked total stats by 5
When you add in other stuffs like oil things change however.
