Default breaking down a recipe help , please......

Morning chickies,

Yea, it is finally Friday, and we are getting a wopper of a snow storm, boo!!!
Anyway, I am getting frustrated with cooking. I was on core with ww for a while and it was really easy. With LA my center has been saying for 7 weeks they are getting the new recipe book, it hasn't shown yet, and I go through my other books, can't really figure out how to break down a serving for 6 let's say, do you have any tricks for this?

Lizzie- Give me a recipe and I will break it down for you.

Try to put divisible portions in... don't put in 5 starch, 6 protein, 2 dairy...make your casseroles up with divisions in mind. For my lasagna, I will count out how many starches are going in first, usually 6 because I don't use many noodles. Knowing that, I will put in 3 or 6 proteins, 3 dairy, and 6 or 12 veg. That way, if I eat a piece I am not having to do really complex math and saying I ate 1/3 of a dairy or 2/3 protein or 1.25 veg. For things like spaghetti I have started just keeping everything separate and measuring out enough for myself before I mix everyone else's together.
