Hey thanks for posting your question.

The recipes features allows you to combine multiple ingredients, so that MyFitnessPal can automatically calculate the correct number of calories and nutrients when you log a serving of that recipe to your diary.

To get started on the website:

Click “Food” then “Recipes” then “Enter New Recipe,” below the ecipe Importer option. Then enter a name for the recipe, and specify the number of servings it produces.

Select “Add Ingredient” and search for the first ingredient in your recipe. If available on your device, Mobile app users may scan barcodes to find ingredients.

Be sure to adjust the “number of servings” of each ingredient to reflect how much of the item you are using in the entire recipe. Once all of the ingredients are entered, save the recipe. The recipe will now be available in the “Recipes” tab tab when you add food to any meal.

If you’re not sure how many servings a recipe will produce, enter a best-guess number when you first create the recipe.

After the recipe is cooked, you can evaluate the number of servings that have been produced. Then, the recipe can be edited and the correct number of servings can be entered. This article contains additional information on editing recipes.

Warm Regards,
MyFitnessPal Staff
