Pre-planning my meals on Cronometer
I realized that I can put the foods that I want to have in any following days and just put a zero value for the amount. Maybe everyone else already knew this, lol. I knew I could put the foods but always put an amount of what I hoped to eat. It's really good for me because I am trying to plan 3 days in advance and do a food rotation so that I'll be eating the same thing basically for 3 days and then change to something else. Normally I record stuff after I eat to make sure I get the values correct but now my total nutrition values and calories, etc, will show zero until I put the correct amount in. So I can write out 2 or 3 days in advance and add the values as I go along.
I can also change something to a zero temporarily that I have actually eaten if I want to see what a different food would have done to the totals for just a moment and then change it back. For example, if I had sweet potato but wanted to see what would have happened if I'd had brown potatoes instead, rather than delete the sweet potato and then put it back, I can just change it to zero for a moment and then put the correct value back again.
That may have been obvious to everyone but I'm really chuffed that I can do this. I'm using my favorites list more efficiently too and that makes things a lot quicker.
