Comment Re:Mass transit isn't the only poorly planned thin (Score 1) 474

Governments are not supposed to sit on large amounts of cash. For large capital expenses they borrow the money (bond measures) so that the people getting the benefits of the expense are the ones paying for it. Otherwise you have today's people paying extra for something they may never get the benefit of, which is not very easy to sell.

You can enter your own recipes in MyFitnessPal. All you have to do is figure it out once and save it.

For example I have a bleu cheese salad that I make a couple of times a week. Figure out the ingredients and weigh them (I bought a cheap food scale at NewEgg) and it's not that hard. It also has the side effect of making you aware of where your calories are coming from.

I guess I'm a little surprised that someone who is patient enough to actually cook from scratch would then be too lazy to weigh a few items.
