I love S.P however the one thing that I have noticed is that the calorie suggestions in the recipe section is a bit off for a lot of unique items - or just plain not there. For instance I was looking for wonton wrappers to make some ravioli but I found that the counter had wonton wrappers and eggroll wrappers in the same option. The calories were around 80 calories per wrapper, which is obviously not correct. I make many Asian foods so many ingredients are just not available, which is very understandable. I found found another site though for those of you looking to input those more "unique" items in the calorie counter when making your recipes online here at S.P. The website is called, "Calorie King" www.calorieking.com and has just about everything that I have searched for that was not on S.P. I highly suggest it to anyone!
As Easter is coming very close, I am trying to decide what exactly I am going to make for my husband and myself. We usually go to our hometown however this year we are staying home for a quiet break from the daily stress we call life. So I have been testing out new recipes for Easter and I came across Agar. It is a "sea vegetable" that works similar to gelatin so I am thinking about making something with this healthy gelatin that hails from Japan. We tried a vegan mocha mousse pie however it was a little strange and not to our liking. Anyone have any suggestions?

Note: Today was a short day of exercise due to time restraints and also because my husband hurt his foot exercising on Tuesday. Usually we exercise together however we decided to take a little break for the night since we didn't want his foot to get worse. Another day and his foot should be much better, we hope.
Usually I am much better with my food intake however today I am feeling a bit down due to the weather and from tiredness of yesterday's workout. I took in more calories than I usually prefer to take in but life still goes on and so will my exercise.
