  1. So for each breakfast item 1 serving would be the 200 calories. Is that correct? So I could split this recipe in half and it would equal out to one serving at 200 calories? Is that how the breakfast, lunch and dinner items are organized ….by serving = 200 calories

    • Each of the bonus recipes are provided for additional variety – see the nutritional stats below the recipe? This particular recipe makes about two cups and clocks in at 273 calories. So to make it around 200 calories, you would use 2/3 of the recipe ingredients. Makes sense?
