Reduce search time when adding foods:

Sunday, November 25, 2012

This saves me time tracking my nutrition: I use 10 meal groups. Besides the usual breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks, I use entre, sides one and two, salads, condiments, and extras. These are like a menu with portion size and availability. It cuts my search time and saves on food costs ( I eat up leftovers before they spoil). I carry the menus forward each day with few changes. Instead of always searching for food items, I choose from the menu. I transfer them to the breakfast, lunch or dinner area and at the end of the day delete the itms remaining in the entre, sides, etc. I have carried them intact to the next day for my use. The current day then only has the regular meals.

My favorites took to long to load, as I had too many.

    I'll have to try your idea as it sounds easier than going through all my favorites. I've been struggling, big time, as can't seem to get back on track since Thanksgiving. It reaffirms to me that yes I am a food addict, unfortunately. Thanks for this idea.

    Hugs,

    sounds good. it works for you. now that hubby can eat more salt i might be able to use a cookbook. i use to have to rework reciepes or figure out what i could eat by myself not get bored and not spoil food.

    Sounds like a great plan, Marty! I have found that I can search in my favorites, too! I never thought of it until about 6 months ago...my favorites list is so long now that it was almost like searching in the big one! Love, Jeannie
