Sometimes, you will be surfing the web and you may spot a recipe you would like to use in NutriAdmin. It is possible to add recipes from the web to NutriAdmin, however, the process is semi-manual and cannot be fully automated.
Basically, if you wish to have a copy of the recipe in NutriAdmin, you can:
- Create a recipe in NutriAdmin.
- Create a report in NutriAdmin.
When you create a recipe, you add the different ingredients from the database. This allows the software to calculate macronutrient/micronutrient content, and makes the recipe suitable for using in meal plans.
You can copy/paste the recipe instructions, name, and upload an image. However, you will have to enter the ingredients and quantities one by one. This is because, unfortunately, we do not have a way to automatically match ingredients listed as text in a website to the corresponding food items in the database.
It may take some time and effort to create recipes manually, but the advantage is that once created, you will be able to use them in meal plans. So this could be a one-time effort that could save you time and hassle in the future.
On the other hand, if all you want is a recipe that you can print out and hand in to clients, you can create a report. A report in NutriAdmin is similar to a Word document. You can literally copy/paste the contents of the recipe into an empty report and save it.
A report can be printed and handed in to a client at any point, so you may find this option interesting depending on your case. The main disadvantage of storing a recipe as a report is that you will not be able to use such recipe in meal plans and you will not get the macronutrient/micronutrient analysis either.
