This is just a starting point to explain the next steps. You can grab the corner to enlarge this to read it better. When you want to go to the next page click the Ingredients button. The drop down just shows a list of portions. You can see the change, but the next page gets everything from the database. The Nutrition button with Excel on it is something I created to keep track of nutrition intake, and I always change it every month and save it with a different name, so this can be cleared and used. Clicking the button starts the download. To change the date on the records you type in the first day of the month and then use the corner to drag it down and create a sequence for each day until that month runs out of days. On the next table there is a list of ingredients, some are in cans, some in grams, or pounds, while some are in teaspoons. The next table is mostly about changing the teaspoons in to something else like tablespoons so it fits your recipe better, and don't forget the check all the boxes to include them when you are finished. I have not created an edit yet, so you can add ingredients that are missing. The whole purpose of this is to create a list of recipes you can eat and know what is in them so you control what you get when you eat. This is just something in progress when I have time to do more. If a page does not exist then I have not created it yet. Originally I had everything, but I didn't like converting everything to tablespoons. Some was not bad like 4 tablespoons is .25 cup until it got up into 32 tablespoons. So, I am redoing everything to make it easier. In the ingredients is Pizza Sauce. It is my recipe, and I am sure when I reached the end my choice was to add it as an ingredient or a recipe and I selected both, because it is an ingredient for making pizza, and my recipe. When this is finished you will have the same option, but by the time I am done, as a user this information will be recorded as your diet, and every recipe is set into portions by you or someone else when they setup how much the recipe makes, and how many serving it can be divided into. By the end of all this it should let you select an area where you can pick what you want to eat, how many servings to create a list of 1 or 2 for servings per meal. If you have fish, peas, and French fries with a 1 for each serving of them you could see the change in the top of how much calories, fat, cholesterol, sodium, potassium, carbs. sugar, and protein in is everything you eat, and if you go over a set amount like 300 cholesterol then that box will have a red background or yellow when you are getting close that is more than normal. It will also highlight when you are too low on something like sodium and your blood pressure drops. Because each person will have different warnings like if you are on a renal diet you can set the warnings to what you want. This should be easier with a list of foods showing what is in everything, so you can see what you can't eat with what you can eat. The last thing I will do is to reorganize the list, so you can chose to show everything with the lowest potassium levels so anything without potassium will show first. All of this might be a log time off, but I feel I need to start somewhere. By doing this it could create a community of people watching their diet, and every recipe is shared. So, if you want to know how much of everything goes in to my pizza sauce you can fin it in the list, click on it and get information for how to make it. Pizza Sauce is a large recipe to insure the taste is going to be the same with small changes, and it will fill 4 quart jars. I include how to can this straight from the stove top to jars and insure a good seal that can last many years, even if the sauce don't last that long. No canning equipment necessary. I hope this can help people live healthier and live longer, and get a way from everything that is making unhealthy. With making your own food that is goof for you. I have seen recipes like making ice cream from heavy cream, and sweetened condensed milk. If you see this with the nutrition facts, you can see it will make your cholesterol soar very high. Pudding made with egg yokes is around 299 cholesterol per egg, and a recipe with 6 egg yokes is close to 1800 cholesterol. Have you every considered what is in the food you eat, and how things really effect your body? It is good to question why things are in a recipe. Why is there an egg in the bread recipe and not in others, what does that do? Does it taste any different, does it help the bread? Most thing is a recipe are mindless. Like every cake recipe need vanilla even when it is a chocolate cake. Why? If it is chocolate then it don't need another flavor. When you make something with a lot of sugar then why add salt, to hide some of the extra sweetness. You might start to notice a lot of this in recipes, and it is mindless, like saying when you make anything with tomato paste you need onion and garlic, in everything. Why add spices you hide by over powering them with other spices. Paprika can hid mistakes, and clear the flavor. If you make a very strong sauce you can hide it with paprika or tone it down. This is only by taste. If the flavor is weak, salt is know to bring it out, but you can use less paprika or use more spice, and not use salt. So, be warned and live healthy for now.
