I think what you're describing is impossible. You talk about 'ingredients you like' and yet, ingredients are not recipes. And recipes point to what you actually eat.

One thing you can do is utilize the journal to take notes about what kind of day produced a successful macronutrient profile. Then you can go to the calendar and click on that day and see what you ate that day. If you want to skip the guesswork, go with what succeeded in the past.

One of the best things on fitday is the 'recent' foods log because you can pull foods from that. You know you liked them. You ate them! You prepared them! If they worked at the end of the day, then you can use them again and again.

Weight Watchers online has a feature that's kind of unique but only really works with their points plus system. If you need to add in some points, you can start a search and it will 'suggest' some things that fit in a point range (no macronutrients involved, it's about calories). But my experience is that my refrigerator's contents is my stuff, and my husband's and that's the mishmash I have to work with, not 3 cups of blueberries and a half a bagel.
Ya can't have everything!
