I used to use the WW Tracker which will portion the meal you make, so the total recipe makes say 4 portions.

On Fat Secret I cannot find it.

Tonight I've made a large vege shepherd's pie which contains 1100 calories but I'm only going to be eating 2 portions, my husband 2 portions and then tomorrow a portion each for our lunch.

Do I now have to divide every ingredient (and there are many), by 6 and then times by 2.

Surely, there is some way around it. We don't cook for 1 all the time!!

HELP!

I just enter the food eaten as 0.5 for instance, this halves the saved calories. 0.25 if you ate quarter, etc etc.

Enter it into your cookbook and under servings put 4. Then when you add it to your diet calender just put in the portions you ate.

It's expensive season at my local market
Yum, steak is a rarity for me as well. Am planting some chard, not something that is available to buy, have never even seen it in a farmers market here.

serving size for dry ingredients
Check the food label, it should tell you. Rice tends to have higher calories. Usually it's 1/4 cup dry and about 150-200 calories
