actually, it's pretty easy:)
When you are adding a food for the day, there are a few ways to go about it:
1. Search the brand name: a lot of items by Glutino and Good Life have already been entered, so you can just type that word in and maybe another one like 'chips' and choose the 'search all of these words' option and if your item doesn't show up, you can click on 'add a food not listed' and copy the nutritional info on the box/bag.
I know it gets hard to plan ahead or type everything in all the time, but the nice thing is that you can click 'add to favorites' when you add a new food and then every time you eat that food again, you can go to your favorites tab in the food entry panel and choose it from there, rather than having to enter it all in again!!
2. if you are entering something that you made from a recipe, but the recipe isn't showing up in your searches (this is common), then you can go to the healthy lifestyle tab, choose sparkrecipes.com and you can choose to enter the recipe to share, or for your own records...
3. if you are entering something home-made that doesn't have a recipe available to you, take your best shot at how much of it you ate and chart what you think is in the meal. This works well if you do something like get a burrito out at the store/restaurant... just estimate what is in there.
I know this last one is hard, but if you are really trying to watch the calories I think it works well.

I hope this info was helpful to you!!
