Logging cereal/milk


Hey, so I poured myself a big ol' bowl of Grape Nuts this morning (190g), with 300 grams of milk, and only ate like 15 bites until full. I have most of the bowl left.

How do I track how much cereal+milk went uneaten? It certainly weighs more now that the Grape Nuts soaked up the milk??!

Thanks in advance!

    If you created a new recipe for cereal + milk, you could just put in the net grams of the recipe consumed. Another option would be to enter a fraction of the whole recipe consumed. Meaning that if you think you ate 40%, just enter .4 for the recipe quantity consumed.

    I'm SHOCKED that you eat Grape Nuts! As far as I'm concerned, Grape Nuts is just gravel disguised as food.

    The only cold cereal I still buy is plain Shredded Wheat. I do NOT eat it plain. I add fruit to flavor it. Adding cinnamon and raisins makes it a healthy version of Raisin Bran. Another option is to add chopped dried apricot. In addition, there are many other ways to flavor Shredded Wheat.

    Heyyy, this is an INGENIOUS idea. Thank you.

    What I ended up doing after posting this thread was measure the weight of the soaked-up cereal I poured out of the bowl. And I just divvied up how much cereal + milk I threw out. I tossed 270g of material. So, I made up that I ate about 90g of Grape Nuts and 180g of milk.

    I could be wrong, but that's what I went with. Next time I'll pour less (lol), but also next time I'll use your method of making cereal into a recipe in the event I can't finish it. 👍

    Thank you!! 😁
