Take the time to look at the foods you eat and figure out the serving size. When you can break a serving size down to 2 tbsp or 60 m&ms, you can enter that number in Spark People. Instead of entering "1" for the serving size, enter the actual number of product that makes up a serving. You can then enter a partial serving and let spark people calculate it for you!
For instance, did you know that a serving of dark chocolate m&m's is 60? I added the food as a favorite but didn't enter "1" for the serving, I entered "60" serving. Then, when I eat the m&m's but I only eat 5, I'll enter 5 on the serving and Spark People will calculate the calories etc for me!
Good Morning All. I know we all Love to try new recipes and posting them to SparkRecipes.com...PLEASE When entering a new recipe, put the serving SIZE (eg. 1 cup or 4 oz etc..). It's quite difficult to make a recipe and then divide it by the number of servings to find out the serving size. We all try to watch our serving sizes and acturally measure them out all the time. It would be so helpful to include the serving sizes in your recipes for all of us. Thank You.You are all the BEST....OXOX
I enter ingredients measured in grams. After the meal is done, I figure out how many servings it makes and weigh one portion in grams. I then change the title to include the amount of grams in one serving. I can freeze in larger portions and don't have to remember serving size.
