Recipe Calculator

Friday, December 06, 2013

I decided I would try the recipe calculator today on a recipe that I have been eating often lately. At one point, not too long ago, I thought I would never make this recipe again. Chicken and rice hotdish is really not a healthy meal. It has been going down pretty good lately and not aggravating the stomach problem too much. I knew that I was eating too much of it at a time though. I suppose that is why I haven't run it through the calculator before. I have to admit that I was surprised. I thought the portion that I could fit into my meal parameters would be about a couple bites, but no it is a little bigger than that. It would be the perfect amount for breakfast, but we usually eat it at supper. It is nice to know that I would not have to give it up completely, unless I go back to the no starch diet. I really do feel better when I don't eat starch, but it is hard to maintain for long.

I think the recipe calculator is a great tool. It does take a fair amount of time to run a recipe through it though. I might think of adding it to my goals in the future to run one of my recipes through it every week. I think I'll hold off until I get my test results since there may be diet recommendations that come from that.

I have no clue how to make it go faster. My problem is I want to calculate it but not share it. Too many critics out there.

It should have easier way to do it Pat in Maine.
It is great when you are finished BUT just too long. emoticon
