Try this site: http://myphytos.com/build

You would have to transfer your answer to Spark, but at least it's a way to find the nutrition for your juice.

The problem with doing that is that it would really skew the carb count if one is counting whole fruits/veggies vs. juice. I wouldn't sit and eat 2 c. of pineapple, 3 kiwi and a cup of strawberries (the juiced fruits in my smoothie) so it does make a difference. Could I track it, subtract all of the fiber and then do it that way or would that still skew the carbs? Because if I make a recipe, there is no way to adjust for subtracting the fiber

Surely there has to be a more accurate way of doing this

Hello,

I would add them as a recipe using the link below:
recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-calculator.
asp

and then save it to your favorites and it will be easy to then add to your Nutrition Tracker.

Be well,
Kelly

I am tracking my food intake and have no idea how to track juices and smoothies. Should I weight the fruits and veggies 1st and then track the output? I'm concerned that just tracking the fruits and veggies that I'm juicing will give a skewed carb count, etc. Suggestions???
