Diabetics need to know the nutritional valves!

how much is a serving?

Thank you for your comment. We are currently working on adding serving sizes to our recipes.

Measure this out into 6 small bowls in equal amounts until you use it all and write that down. Then you will know how much a serving is. Sort of like measuring equal amounts into 3 cake pans.

We are currently working on adding the nutritional info to all of the recipes on the MrFood site. It is an arduous process and one that takes some time.

I really like all the nutritional information on the diebetic recipes. Now can you please put the same information on your every day recipes?

Hi. I didn't know how good and fantastic is this site until today. I decided to subscribed and I am so glad I did it. Thanks for taking care of people and giving healthy recipes.
