I have been doing pretty much the same as Mike. I go to a future day (usually tomorrow), enter all the items and then use the calorie breakdown chart in addition to the total nutrition (chart instead of table). I created a spread sheet with all the items: sodium, copper, niacin, etc.) and enter all the total values (column A)of the whole recipe. Column B is #servings, and the 3rd column is a simple formula A/B = value per serving.
It works pretty well but I too think there should be an easier way. I just googled calorie counters and checked a few websites out. Not only are their calculators inferior to fitday (IMHO), but I could not find one that would perform this action. Plus, I really don't want to use another site - kinda defeats the purpose of being on Fitday in the first place if you have to use another site's calculator!
Maybe something to consider for a future upgrade???
