New here, question about creating recipes
I am new here. I use a different tracking app but I have to use Cronometer for a challenge I am doing. So, here I am...recreating all the recipes I use and making custom meals of my common ones so logging will be easier. There are a few features I like such as the super advanced nutrition tracking but other things that I am not crazy about.
I tried creating a recipe today for a 15 bean soup I eat regularly. It's frustrating that the only options are 1/2 cup for the amounts of the bean mix and no option for a 10 oz can of Rotel tomatoes. Often times with a soup recipe, I dump in an entire can of tomatoes or a package of dried beans. It seems like it would be more user friendly to have an option for choosing the entire package instead of just serving sizes. Is there a quicker way to create a recipe or do I have to read every single label to determine the number of servings in the package? I get reading labels when I am truly only eating a serving of something but for a recipe that will auto-calculate the info based on the number of servings I designate in the recipe, it seems cumbersome.
