Recipes: add post-cooking/baking prepared weight to better allocate nutrients -> servings

This has been discussed in the forums, but I didn't see a feature request. Cooking tends to evaporate water from ingredients. Thus a measured post-cooking serving doesn't accurately capture the correct percentage of the original ingredient nutrients.

For example, I made an Avocado Loaf today. The ingredients weighed about 640g. After baking, the loaves weighed 566g. If I consume a 75g serving, I'd like that serving to have 75/566 % of the overall macro/micro nutrients from the recipe, not 75/640 % of the nutrients. (Extra credit for allowing/assuming the weight change was due to lost water and changing the water component.)

An equivalent (which I'd probably prefer) would be some sort of "Preparation Weight Loss Percentage" variable for the recipe, which I could set to 12% or whatever.
