Louise, it sounds like you may be looking for "Groupings." I use it a lot to create my own group of base food items, for example, I have my favorite green smoothie. I have grouped the ingredients together so I can click once and all the ingredients—an apple, banana, spinach, yogurt, etc.— will post to my nutrition tracker. I also use Groupings for meals that I eat regularly, like oatmeal, raisins, brown sugar, milk and orange juice for breakfast. Once the items in the whole group post, you can delete or change the quantities in each item individually.
Here's a link for instructions:

Hope this helps!

emoticon emoticon emoticon WELCOME TO SPARK!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon
Congrats on taking the first step into changing your life to a more healthier one by joining the site. Spark is filled with amazing people that will motivate, support and encourage you on your journey. There is so much to learn and discover here, take this one day at a time.

A couple of things I would like to suggestion to make you Spark experience a great one.

1. Put together your own Spark page. This is a great way to communicate with other members and build relationships that will support and motivate you. You can do this by going to the START page and the green section has something about your Sparkpage.

2. Make goals for yourself. Each month I make a list of what I want to accomplish that month and break them down to smaller goals to work with week by week. This way the BIG picture doesn't seem so big.

3. Join Spark teams. There are tons of teams here and you will be able to find ones that fit to what you like or want in a team.

The key to success here is to be active and you've already started by joining. You will find that everyone is willing to help you out if you need it. Spark friends are here for support, motivation and encouragement. Good luck on your journey to a healthier lifestyle! Again, welcome to the SP family!

My name is Louise and I need some help with this site. I cannot seem to find out how to add different ingredients to make one food I like that is not in the Spark People drop down list. How do I manually do it? Thanks
