Is there a custom recipe feature?
 
Either on the classic, pc or premium?

It would be nice to enter the ingredients of a recipe, state the number of servings and voila, there is the individual nutritional breakdown per serving...

If there is this feature, could you please tell me where. Thanks. :)

I go through the rather tedious process of entering ingredients in nutritiondata.self.com and then use their copious data to make up my nutritional profile for the dish. In nutritiondata, you enter all the ingredients and then, from that point, you can call up the data for the entire recipe, 1/4 of the recipe, 100 grams of the recipe, or 1 oz of the recipe. It requires you to use the foods in their database of foods, which is vast, or custom foods you enter yourself. If you use their foods (boiled brussels sprouts, plain, with salt, for example), you get more information about that food than you know what to do with. Amino acids, omega-6 fatty acids and omega-3 fatty acids.... brussels sprouts has twice the omega-3's as omega-6's!

A lot of work. What I end up doing in fitday is just putting the ingredients in for the amount that I would eat of a certain recipe and saving it as a custom food. Then, it's easy to specify 2 servings when I eat double that amount.

What I gerenally do is go forward to the next day on the food log (a blank day), enter in all the ingredients, and save that nutrition info as a custom food.

ok. Thanks.

I will look into nutritiondata.com

If you google "recipe builder," the first one that comes up is a good one. I use that, then enter the info as a custom food and it's there anytime I need it.
