Hi everyone... I am making up a healthy soup type of meal today and I wonder how I should calculate how much of what is in it calorie wise, fat wise, etc. Should I take all of the items I am putting in, and measure out the WHOLE pot and then divide it up into servings of 1 cup each? I want to be able to accurately track it in my fitday. Its going to have: ground turkey kidney, navy beans, black eyed peas, etc corn niblets celery, onion, etc and maybe some rice, barley or wheat pasta Tomatoes and a bit of fat free chick stock so should I just count how much per can, weigh the meat out, etc and punch it all in as a big mass and divide it up? Help is appreciated!! thanks!

Thats what I was thinking would make sense. I'll count the measurement and weight of everything I put in and write it all down and add it up / divide it from there!

It was confusing actually because everything was not measured in cups on the labels. But, I did it. Hope you like it. I did. ~ Angie
