How do you manage putting your foods for the day if that food is not listed on the site? As you can tell by site name I like real food. I buy fresh veggies and fruits, whole grains, beans, and protiens not packaged stuff. I wish I could just put in the number of calories. I eat lots of foods that are not listed so it takes lots of time to track down all the required nutritional info to enter anything.
I buy most of my food at various ethnic food stores and small fresh markets so the brand names etc don't apply. Like tonight I'm eating a Thai basil curry stir fry with a mix of oriental cabbage family greens, and chinese broccoli with chicken --was going to add some tofu that I thought I had but don't. So I added some gryo meat that the only info I have is calories for some extra protien. No clue on the oriental veggies I didn't go hunting. The curry sauce is in Thai I think but it does have calories listed that I could figure out. I end up hunting through some category trying to find something that the calorie count comes close.
For dinner I'm guessing with the amt of veggies per serving figuring the calories per oz for chinese broccoli for all the veggies, some of them I only have the market's oriental name that I scribbled down. My stir fried dish and my 1/2 cup of rice my meal is about 350 calories including my fruit for desert.
