Is there a way to bundle commonly eaten meals?

Of all the food logging apps I have used I find cronometer to be the best. The only thing I can't do, or can't figure out how to do is to combine the elements of a meal for regular use. In other words, some of the other apps have a feature where you can re-use an entry that for example is Oatmeal, Blueberries and Almond Milk, without having to enter all three every time.

  • Thank you Tom. That is exactly what I needed.

  • I use recipes for this, however...

    I would love to see all the ingredients in a recipe on my food log.
    I eat the same breakfast everyday but sometimes I might be forced to use a different type of yoghurt or different fruit for example.

    Ideally It would be good if I could make a quick adjustment to the recipe just for that day, without having to make a whole new recipe.

  • @greenwhy5000 you can breakdown your recipe in your food log!

    Right-click the recipe in your diary and choose 'Explode Recipe'. This will show all the ingredients in your diary, so you can make any adjustments you need without changing your original recipe.

  • I wish Explode Recipe still somehow maintained a link to the recipe, or grouped the ingredients somehow. I find it all gets mixed up in the group when I use that feature. +1 on a better way to manage base & modified recipes in the diary
