SparkPeople SparkRecipes Feedback and Support Messageboard Suggestion: More advanced search Hi, I was looking at the recipes and thought that it would be more efficient and easier if there was a more advanced search option such as being able to click on course:breakfast and then the option of searching for vegetarian within those recipes. (Unless I'm missing this somewhere?) <BR> <BR> Also, and I know this isn't for recipes, but for the nutrition tracker, I want to use the meal planner, but I'm allergic to nuts and those show up constantly in the meal plan that's created for me and... Fri, 23 Mar 2018 18:25:55 EST nutritional breakdown hi! is there somewhere on the site that will allow you to type in the recipe ingredients and get a nutritional breakdown? thanks! Sat, 17 Mar 2018 21:00:56 EST Recipe ingredients How can you create your own ingredient, or change an ingredient that's in the file that is wrong? Wed, 7 Feb 2018 11:19:01 EST Locating a featured recipe Good Morning <BR> Last week I happen to stumble on a featured daily recipe that was a chicken drumstick with herbal coating. Looked amazing and wanted to try it, but when I went back to find it, I was unable to locate it. Any ideas on how to do this. I have already tried searching in the recipe search bar and was unsuccessful. <BR> Thanks Mon, 29 Jan 2018 06:36:13 EST Homemade foods I really wish there was a better system for doing homemade foods. I just put foods together sometimes and don't measure or anything and I don't have the desire or time to fill out a recipe each time. So I just don't do the daily stuff on sparks on days I do homemade foods, unless I have the time to fill out a recipe...and bother with all of it, which is rare. Any one else have this problem. Every time it comes back and doesn't have anything but fast food (rarely eat), or some brand name of ca... Tue, 16 Jan 2018 21:35:24 EST How do I edit a recipe in Sparkrecipes? This morning I added all the ingredients, but had to bail before writing out the directions because I was running late for work. When I entered one serving of it for lunch today, it showed that I ate 953 calories. <em>40</em> <BR> <BR> I tried to go back and edit it tonight, but couldn't see a link for it. There has to be a better way. Any suggestions? Thu, 4 Jan 2018 00:40:21 EST Why No Low Sodium Under Dietary Needs? I have had to go low sodium recently and when entering my bread recipe on SparkPeople it doesn't list "Low Sodium" under the Dietary Needs option. It would seem that there are plenty of members out there that could use that selection. Thanks. Sat, 23 Dec 2017 15:24:01 EST Nutritional Yeast How do you use this? Do you like? Tue, 5 Dec 2017 17:28:04 EST Adding recipe from another site Is it possible to add a recipe from another site? I'd like to add the recipe I made tonight off Pampered Chef. The only thing I did different was not add the salt. What to see what the calories are. Wed, 15 Nov 2017 18:13:18 EST created recipe and saved to favorites I created a recipe and then clicked the more button and clicked on save. However, when I am recording my foods that I have eaten and go to recipes - choose a favorite recipe I can't find it. Why is that, what am I doing wrong? <BR> <BR> I had done this in the past and then found them in the recipes tab of the food tracker by scrolling through the favorite recipes, but it is not working for me now. Mon, 16 Oct 2017 15:15:22 EST Scan bar code for recipe ingredient in app? When creating a recipe in the phone app, can I scan the bar codes for ingredients or do they have to be manually searched for? Tue, 26 Sep 2017 22:03:54 EST How do you plan & shop for one person I'm not good at planning & shopping for one. I end up throwing out food or running out. How do you all plan & shop for one? Btw, needs to work with apartment fridge & storage space. Sun, 17 Sep 2017 12:50:59 EST enter food not listed When creating a new recipe, I have used the option to "enter a food not listed" and all works well while creating that recipe, but I have noticed that the next time I want to create a recipe and use that same ingredient it is nowhere to be found in the list of ingredients. Even clicking the option to search foods manually entered does not show that ingredient. How do I get the program to show that same ingredient again instead of having to add all the nutritional information again? Fri, 15 Sep 2017 09:05:17 EST new SparkRecipe -- how to add plain old table salt I use SparkRecipes quite a bit to calculate nutrition of home cooked items. <BR> <BR> The first step is to select and add an ingredient. When I do a search for "salt" about a hundred items show up and none of them are salt. <BR> <BR> How do I add salt? <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> Fri, 8 Sep 2017 08:20:43 EST Recipe Result I visited the "Recipe" tab at the top of the sparkpeople homepage. Then I looked under the slow cooker or crockpot recipes. The one that I decided to try was the crockpot rotisserie chicken. I cooked it 6 hrs. 15 minutes and it turned out great. I let it cool for 30 minutes before I took the chicken off of the bones. I did change one thing about the recipe...I used the juice of one lemon instead of 1/2 of a lemon to add the thyme and pepper with. Then I put another 1/2 of a lemon and 1/4 of t... Sat, 5 Aug 2017 00:12:31 EST Blue apron Anyone else using blue apron or home chef? Sun, 16 Jul 2017 21:23:07 EST Eggplant Recipe I was looking for an eggplant recipe and one listed includes <BR> one cup of olive oil. Seems like to much. I would use 1/4 of that to start, <BR> and cook to taste. Thu, 8 Jun 2017 16:47:05 EST Serving size?? When looking up foods it's really difficult to find what I need in the portions I have. For instance, there are several Shredded Chicken options but all of them say "one serving". That is no help at all, can't we put the actual amount in the nutritional info? This is really the only hard thing with this site, often can't find the right measurement to get an accurate calorie count. Otherwise I love Sparkpeople! Wed, 31 May 2017 22:39:04 EST Substitute whole egg for whites? I bake rarely and am unfamiliar with common substitutions. <BR> <BR> This banana bread recipe calls for two egg whites. Will the recipe "work" if I use one whole egg instead? <BR> <BR> Thank you. <BR> <BR> <link><BR>l.asp?recipe=54001 </link> Sun, 28 May 2017 13:08:22 EST Apple Cider Vinegar How is Apple cider vinegar used? Tue, 16 May 2017 21:24:22 EST Homemade Ricotta recipe I found a recipe for homemade ricotta cheese here n the recipe section ---<BR>ail.asp?recipe=1111690 <BR> I was thinking of making it, but would like to replace the 2% milk with skim / nonfat / fat free milk. <BR> I tried creating the same recipe but with skim milk instead but it is coming out with a lot more calories per serving than the actual recipe shows. <BR> If I am just replacing the 2% milk with nonfat / skim milk shouldn't the calorie cou... Thu, 23 Mar 2017 16:09:38 EST Main Category when creating a recipe I was creating a recipe that I make for breakfast and when I got to the step to create a name and the cooking instructions there is a tab that is for the Main Category. I clicked on it, but there was no option for breakfast or something similar. The only options are Poultry, Beef & Pork, Vegetarian, Fish, Appetizers Soups & Salads, Side Items, Snacks, Desserts. <BR> However since my item does not have any meat in it, but it isn't vegetarian (since some folks who are vegetarian do not ea...

I haven't craved snacks in the evening and much to my surprise it's going good. I've noticed lately I've been really tired and no energy. My diet consists of veges, beans, tofu, Quinta, some fruit.

Thanks Sun, 29 Jan 2017 12:04:10 EST creating recipes when i create a recipe is possible for the program to convert the serving in to weight ( grams, oz etc.) I have been using Calorie Count which will convert recipes to grams and oz when loging. but they are shutting down and now looking for another site, that will fit my needs.
