Once you get used to using the recipe builder, it goes super fast. Today I entered in 4 different recipes for my meals next week in less than 30 minutes (all from scratch). It helps to save things you use often to favorites to make it go faster.

You can easily access the recipe builder through your nutrition tracker, as mentioned above. Just click on the recipes tab, then "Access the recipe calculator".

I have issues with this as well. I make almost all of our food from scratch, and figuring out the count for them can be hard. There is a link on this site (i need to find it and book mark it) that you enter the foods, and then it figures it out for you. It just takes time.

Honestly I just end up finding something close and counting that.

or track something as close as you can... a chocolate brownie will be very close, even track a few cherries if you feel you need too!

Do you still have the recipe? There is a link on the page where you track your food for a recipe calculator. You put in all of the ingredients, divy up the portion size, and voila~ you've got a number to track! It'll even add the food to your favorites, so if you eat more you don't have to do all the figures again.

I am new to tracking my foods, so if this is addressed elsewhere, please point me in the right direction. My family is finishing up our holiday goodies today. I ate two small White Chocolate Cherry blondies. How do I track this since there are so many ingredients in it? These type of blondies are not on the list. I guess that's a sign that I shouldn't be eating it in the first place! :)
