Figuring Nutrition Facts?

Published May 31, 2014 by Christa the Cupcake

Okay so, you know I’m doing MyFitnessPal, and using the food journal thingy…and I need to know the nutrition facts of the foods that I eat. If everything I ate came out of a bag or box pre-made, that would be an easy task.

But I don’t do that. We make food. We make our own recipes. I eat pre-made things, but not a whole lot. When my fiance makes soup, I have absolutely no clue what the nutrition facts are…when my moms make fried chicken, I don’t really want to know, but that’s beside the point.

But…to me it seems like an almost Herculean task to figure them out by myself. Like I don’t even know how to go about it. Thinking about it now is actually upsetting me a little, because it seems like its something I should be doing but at the same time it sounds so daunting that my brain just NOPES it out of my thoughts.

Is there an easy way to do this, or is it as hard as I think it is? D:

  • I’m not personally sure… But I just barely started using it and so far it seems as hard/time consuming as I think it is. My diary looks crazy because of all these single ingredients, haha! I use the scan option where possible and adjust the serving size. I’ve been scanning spices too (cayenne and paprika are potassium-filled, for instance!). If you figure out an easier way let me know! It HAS helped me learn more about the food I eat doing it this way though.

      • If my hubs cooks I’m pretty annoying about all the ingredients he uses, haha. I ask about everything. It felt awkward for a day or two but now he expects it. 😛 he knows what I am shooting for so he doesnt mind much.
