We've yet to see a wearable device that can automatically track what you eat--and it looks like we won't for some time--so what's a quantified nerd to do? Orange Chef's Prep Pad scale and companion Countertop app make tracking your food intake easier, including not only calories but also the nutritional breakdown, so you can aim for balanced meals while keeping an eye on portion size.
Prep Pad is one of the most useful pieces of technology to grace my kitchen since the dishwasher. While its $150 price tag seems steep, if you need help with portion control or you're looking for encouragement to cook more, Prep Pad can really pay off. Even once you train yourself in the basics, the recipe-hacking and leftover-tracking will keep you coming back for more.
