Another way to input recipes is to add to your personal "Recipe box" through sparkrecipes.com:
1. Sign in with your user name, etc as you would SP. 2. Click on the upper tab: MY RECIPE BOX. 3. "Click here" to use recipe calculator. 4. And follow directions!
The tricky part I just learned is trying to access the recipe back in SP (I should say: if you input the recipe the day AFTER you actually ate it: what I had to do was "add" it to the day I entered it. SP saves it automatically (or make sure that box is checked, can't remember) to Favorites. Then I was able to add it to the previous day from Favorites and delete it from the day I entered it - -gosh, make sense?! lol SP will probably fix this, but for now that's how to work around it.
KNOWLEDGE = POWER. BODY = TEMPLE. FOOD = MEDICINE. PREVENTION IS THE CURE. YOU ARE WHAT YOU ABSORB! One person's food is another person's poison. __________ Celiac Disease: An autoimmune reaction from eating gluten grains: wheat, rye, barley and contaminated oats=nutrient deficiency=cancer. Have 1 of 300 symptoms? bit.ly/cdsymptoms CD stories: bit.ly/cdstories Nutrition/Cancer: bit.ly/Quillinnutrition
Its so hard adding all the ingredients into that little box, but once you got it in, its there. Now, my question is this...is it there for everyone else to see too? I hope all this work isn't just for ME! lol
I found a really good brown rice cereal at walmart thats just a few bucks a bag. I was so excited, as I hadn't had cereal in over a year!
HI GARDENERJUDY, welcom. Try clicking on add a "food not listed", upper right hand corner. I do it all the time. I'm just reading The Gluten-Free Gourmet cooks Comfort Foods by Bette Hagman. In it she breaks down the different types of flours( Teff, Amaranth,etc) also she list the nutrients per serving ( calories, fat, protein, etc) for the diffent types of breads to make. If the receipes are similar maybe you can use them as a loose guideline? Also I'm always on the look out for new bread recipes, have any favorites you would like to share?
Go to Resource Center. Click on Recipes, and create your own recipe. If the ingredients aren't listed it lets you add your own (hope the information is on the package you are getting the ingredients from). Then all you have to do is decide on the servings. I usually say it will feed more. That way if I can afford the calories I can have more than one piece.
Being a Christian isn't about religion. It's about a relationship with the One who made us. I'm so thankful to be one of His.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13
Do not ask the Lord to guide your footstep, unless you are willing to move your feet.
God grant me the serenity to accept those I cannot change, to change the one I can, and the wisdom to know it’s me.
Look up the ingredients you are using on the web. Then once you find, say buckwheat flour and the nutritional facts on it, calculate how much you use for a loaf of bread etc. Once you have all the ingredients calculated, you can add the info to your food items.
HI, I finally began typing in the g/f foods. It takes a while, but makes a difference in calories. Now, what do you do if you make something like bread homeade and there is a mix of flours, etc. How does one know the nutrition things on that?
