Went to fatsecret
. Pretty neat. The advantage I see with NutriBase, with very little investigation, is you can:
1. Create your own Personal Food list for those items that are not common or off-brand.
2. Get an itemized list of nutritional data for your own recipes. (What I did with Ha's Liver & Onion.) For example, every week (or so) I make what I call Refrigerator Harvest Soup. This is all the left-overs thrown in a pot as a base and go crazy adding other stuff. I never know what it will turn out like or what it consists of. NutriBase keeps track of all the ingredients and will scale the data to your individual serving size (meaning by each individual bowlful). In other words, you are not limited to the "serving size" on the package to calculate your usage.
3. Measure everything by your choice of any of several different types -- grams, fl. oz, tbsp, cups, etc.
I will, however, caution that the learning curve is similar to that of Moneydance... but then it is the same process. But if Lena is already doing the tracking it will be second-nature.
