Ok, I googled "spanish red sauce nutrition" and it came up with several hits.

Check them out and take a mean average on it. Sometimes we just have to "guesstimate" on the calories, etc. Sometimes you need to guesstimate on the amount too. As long as you try and you track, you will do great.

Put in the notes for the day that you ate out, where, and that you guesstimated so you will know if you ever need it down the road.

There are other websites that have nutrition information. Try googling "Spanish red sauce nutrition" and see what comes up.

My take is don't sweat the small stuff - if the restaurant does not have it, just put marinara this time - close enough. I am sure the calories will be similar. It is not something you eat everyday and there will be other times when you will not find the exact food either. Just do the best you can. If I make homemade veggie soup I cannot find it on there either as mine would be different from other members' homemade veggie soup listed. So I just put the individual ingredients in and hope it is fairly accurate. Sounds like a nice meal you had out.

Have you tried looking up the restaurant on the web? Most of them now have nutritionals listed there. If it is not there, you might try calling the place and asking about it. Hope you can find it. emoticon

i went to lunch with my best friend today in Queens
and I ate baby shrimp with red sauce and white rice. I have the nutrition for the rice and the shrimp but i have no clue how to go about finding this " red sauce" it wasn't marinara and i have no idea what was in it, all i know is that the restaurant was Spanish. I would really appreciate any ideas so that i can take an accurate count of my calories, fat, etc. for now and in the future
