Berry Peach Smoothie With Soy Milk

I haven’t been making smoothies at home for a long time, so I nearly forgot all of my recipes! In trying to rediscover how I used to do things, I came up with a pretty good concoction. This one has flax seeds – you’re going to want to grind that up in the blender before [...]

Chipotle Calorie Calculator

I’ve made calorie calculators for both Subway and Blimpie. Mariah suggested that I make a calculator for Chipotle as well – so I did! You can find the Chipotle Calorie Calculator here.

Blimpie Sub Calorie Calculator

Blimpie subs are great, but it’s hard to know how many calories, carbs, and protein are in each. Particularly if you like to order custom subs, like I do. I made this calculator to help me determine the nutritional values of my ala-carte Blimpie subs.

Subway Sandwich Calorie & Carb Nutrition Calculator

Subway makes it hard to discover the nutritional values of a particular sub.

This is because on their nutritional sheet, they list the calories, carbs, fat, etc., for a particular sub based on a certain set of pre-defined ingredients. For example, they only list the nutritional contents for a sub on their 9-grain wheat bread. Which is great, if you always order 9-grain wheat bread. But I don’t.

So I created this calculator that lets you determine the nutritional content of any sub.

Simply choose your sub, bread, cheese, toppings, etc – from the drop down lists, and the calculator will calculate the nutritional value of your sub.

The chart contains Calories, Fat, Carbohydrates, Cholesterol, Sodium, [...]

What is the difference between Net Carbs and Carbohydrates?

I’ve had a table of nutrition data for many foods online for a few years now.

The table also lists something called “Net Carbs,” which has caused a little confusion. What exactly [...]
