Does anyone have any idea how I would get the nutrition exchange on a recipe? (i.e., Calories , fat , carbs, etc)

I have tweaked some recipes and would like to know " the damage" as far a nutrition is concerned.

There is probably some sort of internet calculator out there that could do it. I'd love to hear about it if someone knows the answer!

I don't know about online calculators but I know there are a number of inexpensive recipe software programs. I have a version of Mastercook that I picked up at Target a few years ago. I am able to put my ingredients in and the number of servings and it calculates the nutritional value.

I also have a dieting program called Diet Power that allows me to do the same thing. Actually, come to think of it Sparkpeople.com has a feature for members to do the same thing and it will calculate for you. It's a dieting forum and I believe you need to be a member to use the feature but it's free. HTH.

Calorieking.com used to have a recipe calculator. You input all ingredients and the number of servings and it tells calories per serving. I don't know if they still have this or if it's a feature you have to pay for their website to use...but they are out there.
