When I was counting calories I used to plug everything into the SP Recipe Builder. You go there and can input any ingredient you need into the calculator and input how many servings the recipe or batch (batch cooking) makes and it totals everything for you. You have the option to save the recipes to your favorites and/or to share with SP Public if you choose. I would do this for things like you mentioned; chili, baked pasta, breads, ect.

If you cannot find an ingredient in the SP List, go to your favorite in the nutrition tracker and manually enter the info off of the food label. Save it to your food favorites and you can upload it into the recipe tracker from your stored favorites.

Good Luck!

Okay, so I want to make healthy meals from scratch at home, but how in the world do I calculate the calories, carbs, protien........all that stuff and what a serving size is???

Example: I want to make my own turkey chilli, I have made it before, but without counting everything, so how do I determine this stuff???

Thank you!!!

Just scared to make something and find out it had too much of this or the serving was too big, I am really trying to watch my intake and be healthy.
