Hi! What does it mean when there is an asterik before a food on the nutrition log? Are these the ones that the calorie counts are disputed?

My recipies are all shared and I only have 3 posted at the moment...sometimes it takes me a while to get them up and I am new to Spark People (loving it so far!). The 3 I have posted are Italian Sausage and Pasta, Sweet and Sour Meatballs (tasty but not so good for the diet...lol) and Spaghetti and Meatsauce...When you browse the recipies I'm sure you will find others similar to these...for mine just look for the ones posted by ANNMARIE23...
A quick cooking tip...to bring out the full flavour of dried herbs, saute them just for a minute in a little olive oil...
I will be posting more as I go along...nice to finally know what I am eating!

hi Velle-G
Thanks for the info...I have been using it for any recipe I find that I like...I didn't realize how many recipies that you think may be healthy are actually very bad...some very very bad...LOL I have found the recipe calculator very helpful in making better food choices for me and my family.

Ann Marie, I agree, I also make my own pasta sauces because I don't like all that extra stuff especially sodium in store brands. You can calculate your concoctions by going to your SparkRecipes:

*on your toolbar find "healthy lifestyle", click on "sparkrecipes.com" from the dropdown menu
*a new page will open up -click on the "recipe calculator" tab.
*click on "add an ingredient" and proceed to add the ingredients to your recipe.
*when thats done, enter the number of servings your recipe has and then click on "calculate info". A popup will appear with with the nutritional info for one serving.

Now you have a few choices, you can either just copy that nutritional info into your nutrition tracker by clicking on "add food not listed" OR you can just save this recipe on sparkrecipes.com, just enter in all the info in the "recipe book" at the bottom half of the page and click save. You can also choose to make it public or not. From here, then you go to your recipe, and click on "add this to my tracker" and add to favorites.

hope i made sense :)

Hi Everyone,
I am in a bit of a quandry...
My question is this: I have taken to making my own pasta sauces, pizza sauces, etc..myself because I don't like the additives (mainly sugar and salt) that store bought brands have. I generally start with "no salt added" tomato sauce and add my own spices, green and red peppers,onions, garlic, a splash of red wine for depth and lean ground beef (for spaghetti sauce). How on earth do I calculate the nutrional value of that? I also make my own pizza dough.
oh and if anyone else would like any of my homemade recipies, let me know, I am happy to share!
Ann Marie
