Forgive me if this has been discussed before. My SO and I are both members here and, like many couples, we cook a meal, and then we share it. When packing a lunch it is pretty common to make the same thing for both of us. It is immeasurably time consuming to create the same recipe, or the same meal, etc., under both profiles.

Given the community nature of this site, I think a lot of people, not just couples, would benefit from being able to grab a pre-built Recipe or Meal from a Friend's profile. I have seen where I can enter recipes and make them part of the site, but the process is cumbersome and requires writing out all the directions, as opposed to just the ingredients so I can keep track of what I eat in my Diary.

Alternatively, we'd like it even more if we could just track more than one person within the same account. My SO works 12-hour days and most of the meal planning falls on me anyway. I got tired of resetting my goals so I could see how the meals I prepared stacked up against his dietary needs (and I've only been here a few weeks!) so I just made him his own profile. Another useful benefit of tracking multiple family members within one account would be automatic one-time entry of recipes and meals... and it provides a more secure environment, particularly if the additional person being tracked is a young child.

I hope you will consider this for enhancements to add in the near future.

That's a neat idea. I would 2nd this so long as it respected private recipes are private. :)

I third this. It has been suggested before by my SO for exactly the same reason too so he fourths it! :)

Love this idea. Better yet, I'd love to have the option of sharing the recipe with friends. If sharable with friends, it would be nice to be able to include the the cooking instructions too.

You can copy a meal from another member, but only on the phone app. I would LOVE to be able to do that on the puter.
