Building a recipe

We’ve added the Recipe Builder to the Plan Manager. Here are some tips for using it.

  1. Under “Name your recipe,” select a name you’ll remember, and a course.
  2. Type an ingredient in the box next to “Add ingredient,” or drag-and-drop staples from the Cupboard, which makes it easier to add common items like salt over and over!
  3. You’ll be prompted to adjust measurements. Here’s where you can add a preparation note, like “finely chopped” or “melted.”
  4. Click the tabs on the side of the ingredients area to add optional instructions and details, like cooking time.
  5. When you decide on a number of servings, the recipe divides the total PointsPlus® value of the recipe by that many servings. So with more servings, the PointsPlus value for each serving decreases…so you can adjust the number of servings to get a PointsPlus value you’re comfortable with.
  6. When you’re done, click “Save.”
