Adventures of a Family Nutritionist

I have become the nutritionist for my family. And I am am trying to convert old recipes and develop new ones that conform to the DASH diet guidelines, and work out the DASH "exchanges" or "Food Group Servings" for the recipes.

I am using Recipe Management software you can get off the shelf. I have used Mastercook, and I have been working with BigOven lately.

I'll be posting here about my experiences getting recipes INTO my recipe databases, getting them OUT again (printing or sharing electronically), and working with recipes once I have them in the database. If all goes well, you'll see some my recipes posted here.
