I've been attempting to eat healthier since my pulmonary embolism. Losing weight will help me out a lot, healthwise. For the first time though, I'm going to be ttracking my calori intake. This has resulted in the creation of a lot of my own "recipes" which are really just various food combinations I've turned into meals.

I keep forgetting to write down everything I've eaten though, so I'm also hoping that it will be easier for me to remember "Pumpkin Yogurt" for breakfast (and it's accompanying calorie count) than 1 cup yogurt, some raisins, applesauce ... um ... 400 calories? etc.

And I'll be putting them on here so I can reference them.
