I've been a longstanding believer in the spork. Beans, rice, quinoa, oats, pasta... name it, and I'd give you reasons for eating it with a spork.
I'm thinking this might have to change, now that I've eliminated pasta, legumes, and grains from my diet. I rely on freezer-bag cooking, and without such means of absorbing excess moisture, I think I'll be slurping down more sauce and broth with my meals. A spoon might be all I need now (provided I cut the jerky small enough).
Best of all, if I can commandeer a sundae spoon from the local Dairy Queen, I'll be able to cut a few grams at no cost to me... :-)
