Why is there NO info on what a serving size is, on ANY of the recipes under that link? I saw for a brief moment the "nutrition info" when a recipe came up, but not one Nutrition Guide has any info on what the serving size is for any of the "meals"? This is seriously important to know this when you are counting carbs for insulin intake.

Welcome MerGirl. What I like to do is go on sites like and There you'll be able to type in the ingredients and the suggested portions from the recipes to see what the nutritional facts are. On Calorie Count in particular, they give each food and then the entire recipe a grade rating. Hope this helps.

Sounds good to me…I did notice that some have this listed, only some I would have loved to make, didn't. I'll keep looking, though.

This is true and we have to depend on those who post to fill in that information for the recipe. There are some who have it or they will tell you how many servings there are in the recipe. That can help too. Some of the earlier entries were able to post without adding that. Now they have to add something in the nutritional section, but if they don't put it in properly is it a quandary.

What I recommend is picking the ones that have the serving sizes or number in the recipes for now. As you get more comfortable with cooking the recipes you can figure out those portions for yourself.

Spanish rice states 1 cup cooked is the serving size.
The second recipe says it serves 4, so 1/4 of the recipe is a serving.
Black Bean Brownies say to cut it in 12 pieces and gives information the serving which is 1/12th of the recipe.

Why don't you take another look at them? They aren't all formatted the same way.
