Wow...that's a cool tool! In fact, I have NEVER been to that part of the Spark site...there are a TON of things to use and explore there. (Ok...maybe the use of the word "ton" is bad heh).

Thanks for this information.

Fun New Feature: Mix and Match Meal Planner
Thursday, October 07, 2010

Happy Thursday, SparkPeople!

Are you in a food rut? In a hurry but don't know what to cook quickly? Then we have a new food feature for you!

We're happy to announce today's launch of a cool new feature in the Nutrition Resource Center of the site: The Mix and Match Meal Planner! This new tool will help you create healthful, tasty and portion-controlled meals that fit your calorie range. Introduced in our groundbreaking book, The Spark, these interactive plans will help you calculate calories and come up with new recipe ideas.

Here's how it works. You can find the meal planner by clicking on Nutrition under the Healthy Lifestyle Tab. Look in the center column of that page for the Meal Planner tool.

Once there, simply select the meal you want to build from the tabs (breakfast, salad, sandwich or dinner), and then choose one option from each drop down to create a balanced meal! It will calculate calories and other nutrition facts as you go, so you can see how various choices affect your meal, and find the best options to suit your calorie and nutrient needs! Once you've finished your recipe, click "Add to SparkPeople Nutrition Tracker" to track it! Note that you can use this meal planner even if you aren't logged in, but you can only track the meal you created after logging in (the feature will prompt you to do so if necessary).

We hope you enjoy using the Mix and Match Meal Planner! Please leave your comments about this new feature below.

There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.
When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And
maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world
Breathe in love & compassion.. Breathe out peace & forgiveness.
