I enter all my ingredients into a spreadsheet, multiplying ea. nutrient by the number of servings. (can of beans = 3.5 serv, so multiply info on label by 3.5.) I add up the totals & divide by the number of grams per serving, then enter that as a new food, adding the date to the name of the food.
I copy & paste my list of nutrients (calories, fat, sodium, carb, vitamins, etc.) into a new spreadsheet each time. I often use what I have when cooking, so I often pull up an old spreadsheet & replace ground turkey with cubed chicken, for example. I can edit the food in SP to make changes.

I have to take shots daily and know if I want to live do it. I have ways to make it easier.
I don't likke restrictions, so I found out you can give your shot through your clothes. I do now. Also, I take my first reading as soon as I wake up. I can work with that reading and can function easily through out the day/
Check out the USDA National Nutrient Database at their website http://www.nal.usda.gov/fnic/foodcomp/search/ to find the nutrient info for food that you may not be able to find otherwise. I've used this a few times to verify the info I had available. The nutrient info provided is easy to read and very, very extensive.
This website http://www.nal.usda.gov/fnic/foodcomp/search/ is relatively easy to use and can be invaluable if you are looking for a particular nutrient in a food that you may not be able to find anywhere else.
