Recipe builder - able to add my own recipe and set servings
It would be nice to build and save a recipe in the app, where we add in individual ingredients and set the amount of servings and have the app calculate macros for each serving. Then we can add a serving of that recipe into a meal when needed.

Absolutely necessary for meal prepping. Having the ability to add the mass of all the ingredients in a recipe and save it so when I log what I’m eating, I can just put the total mass and it automatically calculates the mass of each ingredient. It’s way more precise than “one serving” and it’s just simple math (just tedious to do).
This is a feature I miss the most from WW. We make our own meals sometimes. Please let us create recipes!

I created an account to vote on this. The only part left of MFP that is surpassing Trainerize is the recipe maker. You can bulk add ingredients and you can do a link and it'll find the ingredients on the webpage. Having the ability for clients to register their family recipes (breaking down whats in recipe to the trainer) is helpful with adjusting plans to better fit macros/nutritional goals.

This is a critical development especially for meal prepping and adding meals to the tracker with correct servings when you’re cooking in bulk!

With the cost of living crisis, more and more people want to batch cook to save money and time.
This is a critical development in my opinion.

Can we get this in the app already Trainerize? This feature should have been one of the firsts rolled out if makes the app not at all user friendly for meal prep

For example, if I cook spaghetti, I should have the ability to enter and group all the ingredients I used and then save it.

so when you search you can enter how many servings you ate. I like to make batches of recipes but then trying to figure out how much of each ingredient in one serving is tedious

I logged on to request this as well. It's so tedious to do all the math if you meal prep. The easiest way I've found is to use a separate app then just add a custom meal with all the macros then save that as a favorite

Would like to be able to create recipes that will allow you to put portion size in that would give you the calories like on MyFitnessPal.

When looking to add a meal that’s not ‘planned’ like a peanut butter banana smoothie I can’t see what is in the smoothie. I put spinach and seeds in mine but I have no idea what’s in the smoothie I added in the app. In general I find the meal tracker not very user friendly if you’re adding a meal recipe from the app.

Have a calculator to input ingredients for homemade recipes, and then it will have more accurate nutrition stats.
