I'll second that, that's pretty much what I've been doing. Food scales are so cheap on Amazon it's ridiculous. No reason not to be using one. In terms of MyFitnessPal, I'm now on a 56 day login streak. It's been working great. My only complaint is that they've put a ton of intrusive ads into the app compared to when I first used it a few years ago. I wouldn't mind for the most part, except some of the ads auto-launch a YouTube player [sometimes even multiple instances of one] which is fucking infuriating.
So lately I've been putting thought into the idea of the best way to "collect" digital games. Obviously now we're living in a time where we start to see more and more digital-only stuff, and to be honest, all of the current consoles and handhelds don't really offer truly satisfactory ways to protect that stuff. Passable ones, in some cases, but not really ideal. Let's take that upcoming "Setsuna" RPG as an example. It's being released on PC and PS4 [because Square Enix hates the Vita, apparently.] Ordinarily I'd buy the PS4 version without thinking about it too much, because the PS4 is more convenient, it's in my living room, I like playing with a Dualshock, etc. etc. But more and more, I find myself thinking that I should pick things like that up on PC instead, if it's an option. Just because it would be trivial to back up the game in any number of places / ways and ensure that I've got it around basically forever. [Provided I still have a PC with Windows kicking around.] I don't know why I'm bringing this up, but it's something that's been on my mind recently. I realized that I don't feel fully secure in my digital purchases on any of the major console / handheld platforms, in terms of the longevity of that data's accessibility. That's fine for online games and stuff that I probably wouldn't revisit in the future when the community is dead. But it's another thing for solid single player experiences that I want to keep around.
I like potatoes in curry and stews and whatnot, but I don't like to rely on them too much. They start to feel like space filler being used to replace the good stuff [meat and other more flavorful veggies.]
That's the thing for me too. A lot of times some of my favorite stuff is stuff that I get around to later. I forgot-- I might be able to cheat a little this year, too. Starbound is looking like it's going to [finally] leave Early Access and get its 1.0 release this year, so I get to claim it as a 2016 game and still technically have it be true.
I really love jalapeños on stuff. Burgers, pizza, nachos, etc. So having them in beans sounds amazing. Fun fact: Domino's actually uses some decently spicy jalapeños on their pizza. I discovered this a while back and was pleasantly surprised.
