WELL, it would seem that at least 3 of my friends have no idea how to use WW's Recipe Builder, which is one of the most powerful parts of the eTools collection.
So I figured they weren't alone - and since I have at least 20 recipes in mine, I would share how I use it.
I've included a screen shot of one of my recipes for Bourbon Chicken.
- Click on POINTS Tracker, then click on Recipe Builder (chef's hat icon).
- Give your recipe a name.
- Add ingredients. This works just like adding food to your tracker. Type an ingredient, click "Go." You will get a list you can choose from, or you can add a new food if you need. Add how much you are using (EXAMPLE: 15 oz. chicken broth). Continue adding ingredients until you are done. If you want to be thorough, you can add every herb & spice you add too, but I usually skip that. But I do add zero point foods, in case they aren't zero points at the quantity I am using.
- Enter the number of servings at the bottom. Estimate if you aren't sure - I would underestimate so you don't make it too few points. Just be as honest as you can be!!!
- Save it. You can add a serving right to your tracker, or click the "X" to close. When you type the recipe's name into your Food Tracker, it will be a choice you can pick from here on out.
I hope each one of you will try to use the Recipe Builder!!!
