Search for your own foods. The suggestions that come up are just to give you an idea of where to start.

Many typical foods are already listed by SparkPeople or by other members. Beware! Some foods entered by other Sparklers may not be recorded correctly! You can also look at the nutritional information on your box or bag and enter that data yourself.

You can also enter whole recipes, or use the recipes available in SparkRecipes. The ones that you save will come up in the fourth orange tab on your right and you can enter them right into your tracker.

Good luck and have fun! OK, so entering your food is not really all that fun, but it is a great learning experience if you do it over time.

You can always track your own food by manually entering what you eat. It takes a bit to build up your personal food library, but it works. I never used the meal plans...I tracked my own food.

I have been trying to use the meal plans already made without straying; but I'm noticing that the meal options never change! I do change the meals sometimes by clicking to substitue, but those meals never change either. Is there a way to open up more options? I get tired of the same things over and over.
