Nutrition Calculator - Make a Nutrition Label

Have you ever altered a recipe and wondered how it has affected how many calories, how much sodium, carbohydrates, etc., are now in your recipe?  There is an easy way to find out.

I enjoy the Sparkpeople site as it offers many free services.  Their recipe site has a wonderful tool that calculates the nutritional content of your food.  You can find the recipe calculator here.  Just enter the ingredients in the calculator and click on the "calculate information" button.  If you like, you can post your recipes to the site, and it will include the standard nutrition information label that you are accustomed to seeing on all foods labels.  

Calculating nutrition and making nutrition labels is not only a bit fun, but educational.  It will go a long way in helping you if you're counting calories, carbohydrates, sodium content, and more.

  1. I love sparkpeople! What an awesome website-I gave their recipe book to my mom for christmas this year because we are always trading their recipes. My favorite-spinach burgers! It's also a great resource because people can COMMENT on the recipe, and give great substitution advice!
