Is there a way to manually enter the food, calories, and nutritional info in the food diary?

Not as a whole, at least not that I'm aware of. But you can create new foods or meals or such. This allows you to enter in the information from a home-made meal. You can choose to share the information or just keep it for your own reference.

I keep track with pen and paper, I was hoping there was digital equivalent on this site. There are many foods/amounts not listed. oh well

There are three ways you can enter food on this site.

1) Say you purchase some butter that is different then what you found on this site, you can enter that using the info on the package to this site. I've added many purchased foods this way and it helps to expand their database of foods. (I added No Name petite cut steaks last night)

2) You can have a saved meal that has a few ingredient's. It will add everything to your food diary. I do this with my egg sandwiches. It's nice as you can then tweak the ingredient's to fit that morning (sometimes I use a full piece of cheese sometimes a half.)

3) You can enter a recipe. I did this with a couple of things. You can share or not and it put's everything into one nice entry. Problem is you can't tweak the ingredient's except in the recipe.
