    It would be great for recipes to list the number of servings that it is intended to have and, if possible, the nutritional information.

      Jorene, I understand that we are used to conforming, but if you and I and a third NON wls friend were to eat that salad, NONE of us would eat the same amount. So portion size is dictated by fullness and satiety, NOT by how much I say a portion is. One of the reasons we were overweight was because we cleaned our plates… resign your membership in the clean plate club and use fullness rather than SERVES 4 to judge how much to eat.

    For those of us who still like to log or keep a diary of what we are eating the nutrition information is still important; As we are all striving to keep track of our protein for sure along with any carb/fat information.
