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 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

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.

trying to get accurate cabbage soup recipe

Thanks for the tip, so what I would like to do is get an accurate reading of a soup I am eating a lot of; here is what it has in it:
6 large green onions
2 green peppers
2 cans of tomatoes (diced or whole)
4 carrots
1 can mushrooms
1 bunch of celery
a head of cabbage
1 pkg Onion soup mix
3 T chicken soup mix
1 gallon Low Sodium V8 juice
garlic, rosemary, thyme, pepper, parsley

the fitday food Cabbage soup says it has 72 calories per cup, and 3 g fat, not sure that any of this has fat in it? When I go to log the ingredients into a day as suggested, it says the green peppers have 7.2 g fat in them?

Be grateful if anyone has any ideas how to best log this in fitday.

So I entered all these vegetables as raw, after some digging and searching to find them, then entered an envelope each of onion and chicken soup mix. This recipe makes 40 cups, so divided each nutrition component by 40 and entered; looks like it has 36 calories per cup. Bit time intensive to do regularly, so if anyone has a quicker method, please share.

A note for future recipe entries - found green peppers as pepper, raw
and tomato as tomatoes

I think a standard fitday entry for soup, such as cabbage soup, has fat listed because soup is usually made with oil or butter as an ingredient.

I found (searching the fitday log) sweet green peppers, frozen having only 0.4 grams fat in 6 oz.

There's some things with this program that need to be fixed and I just paid to upgrade my mobile program and DO NOT SEE THE DIFFERENCE!
