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...

Sun, 16 Jul 2017 21:23:07 EST Eggplant Recipe http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/messageboard.asp?imboard=157&imparent=42039101 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?? http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/messageboard.asp?imboard=157&imparent=41961725 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? http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/messageboard.asp?imboard=157&imparent=41927180 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>recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detai<BR>l.asp?recipe=54001 </link> Sun, 28 May 2017 13:08:22 EST Apple Cider Vinegar http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/messageboard.asp?imboard=157&imparent=41817345 How is Apple cider vinegar used?

My husband started his own sparks to keep track of nutrition. I am trying to figure out an easy way to share recipes between us so it makes tracking easier and so we do not have to do duplicate work.

Why do I need to go into "detailed" nutrition? Sugar count is so very important to SO many people ...especially on this site! I am diabetic and MUST know the sugar count in addition to Carbs. I was looking at a dessert recipe and sugar was not listed on the side of the recipe so I realized I needed to click on "detailed" nutrition. There were over 21 grams of sugar in one serving of a muffin!!! I can not eat that and...

Where does that info come from? i.e.: I searched a particular item that I know to have fiber and sugar, but the result had zero in both spots. I am extremely insulin resistant and have been limited to 2gr of sugar per serving so I need reliable source for nutritional info. Please help??? <BR> Thanks.

Tue, 27 Dec 2016 07:56:05 EST Search Problem http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/messageboard.asp?imboard=157&imparent=40494211 Often, when I search for Spark recipes, I do not find anything even remotely similar to what I am looking for...for example, my search for "no bake cookies" says "there are no recipes that match the search criteria." However, AFTER I type the recipe in, it gives several examples of similar recipes. Often the exact same recipe I typed in is there, with the same name. It would save me a whole lot of time if those had come up in the search. Why don't they? This is just one example. It has ...

I just order the gostack from blender bottle. I have the 4 stack one. I just need ideas for snacks to put in there. I do not like almonds or cashews. I don't like: cottage cheese, carrots, trail mix, anything that is overly healthy. I want something salty, fresh and a little chocolate. Please help and don't be negative.

There is often long system delays as Sparkpeople tries to flash as many ads as possible in my face. It is very painful looking up foods and adding them to my daily total as the wait time between entries is painfully slow. If the system becomes more frustratingly slow every day, I am going to look for another calorie tracking system.

Wed, 7 Sep 2016 03:03:09 EST Recipes with Unrealistic Serving Sizes http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/messageboard.asp?imboard=157&imparent=39820526 When I want to add something new to my nutrition tracker I look through the recipes to find one similar to mine before I add a recipe. This is often less than successful. Tonight I was looking for a basic meatball recipe using ground beef. Not for the recipe, I have my own, but a similar one to add to my meal.

Mon, 22 Aug 2016 08:18:37 EST weight report http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/messageboard.asp?imboard=157&imparent=39719697 why is it that your graph show my goal as 120 when it should be 130. This is another reason why I don't use this site much any more except for the exercise videos and recipe section. The information on the weight graph is wrong. It should take my final goal by now and stop at the 130. So why is the graph incorrect?
