Log recipes in oz

When creating a recipe and entering the total weight, I can log an amount eaten in grams, but not oz. Similarly, the recipe should allow me to log the recipe weight in grams or oz.

This is a common problem for many, many foods, especially those in the USDA database.

This should be a common fix -- any food entry that has a serving size in grams, but not in oz, (and probably vice versa) should let the user log in imperial or metric.

If I create a recipe and list it as making X servings, I can log in grams but not oz. It seems currently the only way to log a recipe in oz is to create a recipe and specify a serving by weight (again, grams only) and then add a second serving type of 'oz' that is 32 g.

Why are you making the user do the math?

    I've got in the habit of just converting ounces or pounds to grams before I enter anything in. But, I agree with the commenters above. It would be really nice to be able to use ounces when an imported recipe uses ounces. But, I'm changing the ingredient to something else.
