Weighing Recipes


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

When you make a recipe for the first time, weigh the total amount of food that the recipe makes. Use this total weight rather than number of servings to add it to your nutrition tracker. Now all you have to do is weigh the amount you eat rather than trying to estimate t how many servings you ate.

I hope this makes sense. If you have any questions, please send them to my SparkMail account.

    Great idea! I do a lot of "creating" in my kitchen and I can never quite get the number of portions figured out. I'm going to try this tonight. emoticon
