First I wanted to thank the makers of this amazing app, but I do have one thing that drives me nuts. I would love the ability to be able to copy a meal to any other time.

Here is the situation that I run into. I have dinner one night and we have leftovers. Then the next day I take some of the leftovers to work for lunch. So what I want to do is copy the dinner meal from yesterday, to lunch today.

Currently the only options I have are copying the meal to a certain date, or today which puts it in the dinner spot. That doesn't work. The other thing (which I end up doing) is I "remember" the meal and then add that meal to lunch the next day. That works ok, but I normally don't have standard meals, so I have a bunch of remembered meals that I have only had once.

If anyone knows of a better way to do this that would be great. If not, I would love that feature added to the software.

When you copy the meal from dinner yesterday to dinner today you can click each line of the meal (on the computer) which brings up the edit window where you can change which meal slot the food is logged in for the active days diary.

You CAN however change the behaviour so that all your food items (up to 100, the 4 pages of 25 on recent tab) show up across all meals.

To get your food items logged wherever they are in your diary to any other slot of your diary...
Pick your platform

Website
food > food diary > pick a meal
on the "add food to (meal selected) page there is a search box and RIGHT below it
"or add favorites for (meal selected)
click that (meal selected) and change to the only other option "all meals"

Changing this setting you'll be able to view your dinner items from last night for todays lunch for easy logging, just tick the box beside the items you used.
