    What is the best nutritional calculator recipes?

    As the cookbook contest is kicking off what is the base nutrition calculator to add nutritional information to our recipes?  It would be great to see more people putting the nutritional values on their recipes to help those of us making healthier food choices get s sense of what to expect.

    HubPages is fun, yummy and nutritional! If you calculate food values for every meal, you may have an organized eating disorder.

      I agree, what is half a pea worth?

      I lost 54 lbs this year by counting calories and moderate exercies.  I wouldn't consider conscious eating a disorder when you consider the obesity problem we have in the USA.

    I just started trying to fill in the nutrition capsules. I found a site called caloriecount.about.com

    http://caloriecount.about.com/cc/search … type=foods

    You can look for a complete food entree that is similar to yours, or you can even put in the whole recipe--items and amounts--and the number of servings, and the site will calculate all the nutritional information. I like it, but I'm open to other ideas!

      Thanks for the hint; I actually found another suggestion right under my nose.  When searching hub pages I found this article on creating your own nutrition label: http://bit.ly/Kv1Qnh

      This led me to SparkRecipes, which I have used in the past.

    I usually use a variety of online calculators in addition to the nutritional content listed on the ingredients I used. I have type 1 diabetes so this is not new to me. It is a time consuming process but well worth it to many readers! Here are a few I use:
