What's the nutritional value on (insert Eggface recipe)?
I don't put the nutritional info on my recipes because frankly that can vary so widely. I use full fat cheeses (the good stuff) others may use low fat or (horror) non fat, the % fat on beef, differences in packaged products, brands of protein, etc. will change the info dramatically. Also serving size will vary depending how far from surgery you are. Portions for each stage should be determined by your medical posse.
What I do when I need to find the nutrition info (on my recipes or any other) is go to a site like fitday.com (nutritiondata, sparkpeople, etc.) type in each individual ingredient, this will give you cals, carbs, fats, protein gram totals, then divide those totals by the # of servings you get from the dish. It's not exact but it's close enough for me. When in doubt... print it out and bring the recipe to your Dr. or nutritionist for their thumbs up.
