If you’ve looked at any of the recipes on here, you’ll notice I don’t put nutrition info. Mostly this is because I’m wary of putting anything that might not be 100% accurate and then have people come after me for it. There can be a lot of variation on some recipes simply because one or more of the ingredients is a “use however much you want” type of thing (my Next Level Grilled Cheese is a good example of that).

Why does calculating nutrition in food matter?

Food “macros” (macronutrients) seem to be hugely popular these days. A lot of the special diets have a particular focus on getting macros right. Typically, they’re focusing on 3 main things: carbohydrates, protein, and fat. Different diets or eating plans may have different ratios of these things. A few of the more popular ones are keto, low-carb, and pretty much anything else promoting weight loss or muscle gain. Also, if you have any special health considerations, such as being a diabetic, you really might want to calculate the nutritional value of your food.

Can you get away with not calculating the nutrition values of everything you eat? Of course. I rarely do it myself for when I’m making my own food. I’ll admit, I do look at labels on any packaged foods I buy though.
