Wow. I know, I know, I'm probably sounding a bit like a scratched record. But this site ( just has some amazing tools to help you on your diet and wellness planning. Today, the potential slave that I've been talking to for over a year now showed me the recipe archive they have here. Well, that's very cool since a lot of the foods they plan for you are .... boring. To say the least. However, on that site, you can also use the 'Recipe Calculator' which will let you enter in any recipe you like, prep and service instructions and all. And then based on the ingredients entered, and the servings made, it will compute all the relevant nutrition information for you. And it's still for free! Gah.... THIS is what the Internet should be for. Well, aside from porn, of course.
