New Feature: Recipe Calculator
I'm happy to announce that we just launched our first pass at a recipe calculator. To try it out, click on the "Food" tab, then click "Recipes", and finally, click the "Enter new recipe" button on the right. You'll be taken to a page where you can find the nutritional content of your recipe by entering in it's ingredients.
Once you've saved your recipe, you can add it to your food diary by clicking on the new "Recipes" tab in your favorites lists. All of the recipes you've saved will be visible on that tab and can be added just like any other food. Please note that at this time, recipes CANNOT be searched for - they must be added from this tab.
We've also added an option to submit your recipe to the MyFitnessPal recipe database. We're collecting submissions now, and once we have a big enough collection, we'll create a recipe section on the site where you can find new recipes to try from other members.
In the long term, we'd like to make entering a recipe much easier - the process we launched with works but it's a bit cumbersome to enter in your ingredients and we think we can make it much better. In the interest of getting something out quickly, though, we decided to just launch with this process now (which was easier for us to build), and we'll try to improve it later.
Also, at this time, the iPhone app does not have the ability to create recipes. We'll be adding recipes to the app shortly, but for now, recipes can be created on the website only.
As always, if you have any questions/issues/comments, please let us know.
Thanks, and hope you are all enjoying the site.
