Interesting, I found a Cooking Light book that was devoted to meals for 2. Unfortunately I found it at a garage sale last summer. I'll get it out and post the publish date! I've used it several times, the recipes are great.

I saw someone else mentioned this, what about meals for one or two. I don't mind doing meals for 2 and having leftovers but tired of making meals for 4 or MORE and having to eat things 2 and 3 times a day for DAYS!! Some things freeze well and some don't? I have looked online many times and can find cookbooks for one or two people but not low cal. Can find low cal cookbooks but the recipes are usually for 4 or more. How about a low cal, healthy eating cookbook for one or two??? Or some kind of app, program that can take a standard recipe and cut it down for one or two?? Can be used for those watching their weights and those who don't!! Any smart programers out there that want to make a MILLION. Because this could work the other way too. Put in a recipe and how many it was meant for. Then increase or decrease the number of servings. Out pops a recipe that is adjusted!! YEAH!!

NEW: Videos and a Healthy Chef on SparkRecipes.com
Thursday, July 30, 2009


Recently, we unveiled a redesigned SparkRecipes.com to make it even easier for you to find and share healthful meal ideas. We've also been hard at work on a few more improvements to the site that we think you'll love.


One of the biggest problems people face when they embark on a journey to healthy living is cooking. Whether you never learned how to cook or just don't know how to lighten up your favorite foods, many people fear the kitchen.


With SparkRecipes.com, you can overcome that fear and cook healthful, affordable meals at home.


Introducing "Healthy Home Cooking with Chef Meg"

We have joined forces with Chef Meg Galvin of the Midwest Culinary Institute. (Visit her "Healthy Home Cooking with Chef Meg" page here!) Chef Meg is a World Master Chef and full-time chef instructor; a wife and mother of three preteen boys; and an avid runner. With a passion for healthy living that was sparked during childhood, Chef Meg knows how important it is to find time for fitness and healthful meals with her family.


Chef Meg grew up on a farm in Kentucky, eating food that went straight from the field or the pasture to the table. Today, she continues to provide fresh and healthy meals for her own family--and now yours, too.


She took some of your recipes and gave them a makeover and shared plenty of original, healthful recipes, too. To help you feel more comfortable in the kitchen, Chef Meg did a handful of how-to videos, with plenty more to come. She'll teach you basic cooking techniques and show you how to make healthful meals for your family.


Watch Chef Meg's intro video here.



You can find a link to all of Chef Meg's original and made-over recipes and her videos on the SparkRecipes homepage, in the bottom righthand corner. You can also visit her "Healthy Home Cooking with Chef Meg" page here!


We'd love to know what you think about this new feature, especially the cooking videos, so check them out and then leave us a comment below. Tell us what you liked, what you didn't like, and what you'd like to see in the future.

Water is very important for us. We may, and I do, require more than the 8 glasses a day. The link goes to a water calculator I use to see what I need for my current weight. Mt requirement has dropped 9 ounces due to weight loss. Yipee!

Create food grouping from food you have tracked
Monday, July 20, 2009


Hi everyone

You can now create a new Food Grouping from foods you add to a meal in your food tracker. To do this:
1) Track custom food
2) Click the "Copy This Meal's Custom Foods to Another Day" button
3) Instead of clicking a date to copy food, click the link at the bottom of the page to "Make this meal's foods a food grouping"
4) You can then name and save the Food Grouping

This change is based on feedback from members like you!
