Hi there, I joined FatSecret about a week ago and have already lost 1kg, and very proud about it. Anyway, my question is: does anyone know what the Nutrition Facts are for homemade sweet potatoe and leek soup. The only ingredients in it are sweet potatoe, leek, water and 2 teaspoons of chicken stock. I would appreciate your input. Thank you, Kabby Rolling Eyes

Hello Kabbie
good luck with your calorie counting. I also make homemade soup and other meals, so the easiest way to know the calories for a meal or soup is to create a recipe under the "cookbook" section on your fatsecret. You can then give it a name and you enter each individual ingredient. It will add it all up and depending on the quantities/volumes, you indicate how many "servings" that recipe will yield and it will give you the calories per serving. Good luck!

Gee thanks dgtrestini, I didn't realise I could just punch in the food details and FatSecret would calculate everything for me. That sounds great, I will give it a go, Smile

eat too much salt.
And if you're hypothyroid like me, you go through sodium pretty quickly, so you have to salt your meals just to prevent low sodium levels from contributing to your symptoms.
