Hi, Sheltzie. Spinach does have a bit less carbohydrate than asparagus (per the same weight), but it also has a bit more protein, which means that it is the same in terms of supporting ketogenesis.
One serving of the soup is one half of the recipe.

on the asparagus soup recipe, if you use spinach instead, would it reduce the carb count? and how much is a “serving”?

Hi, DrTHLite. For the keto plan you are currently using, we have an extensive recipe collection that you can browse for simpler options. You can then swap them into your menu by clicking on the edit tool to the immediate right of an unwanted item and selecting that as a replacement from the pop-up list. One of the options at the bottom of every pop-up list is something called meal “ideas”. These are the very easiest you can choose.
If you are not attached to keto specifically, we have a regular low-carb route that does not include lots of recipes. You can check this out by deselecting “keto” in the diet area of your profile, saving the changes, then generating a new menu. You can also swap foods there. Note that you can always go back to keto, if you wish.

I, too, am new. All the meals so far require a lot of ingredients and prep time. How do I set up easy to make meals with few ingredients? I don’t have time to slave in the kitchen. Thanks

Hi, ventwistlern. You can make the system give you three main meals per day, by taking the following steps:
1. Click on the “Exchange View” icon in the toolbar above your menu, and take note of the exchanges you are allotted for each snack.
2. After returning to portion view, click on the edit tool to the right of each major meal header.
3. Once you are in the subapplication that pops up, you can build your major meals from scratch, using the meal+snack exchange numbers to guide you (ignore anything in red telling you that you have exceeded your limit, of course). It is recommended to incorporate the exchanges from the next meal into the present one – i.e., breakfast+snack #1, lunch+snack #2, and dinner+snack #3.
4. Since snacks cannot be completely deleted, to make a cleaner-looking menu put something simple in each of the snack menus such as “Vegetables of Your Choice,” then just don’t use the snacks.

I was also under the impression that there was like a shopping list that you could create with the menus you have picked , has anyone used this and if so where is it !

So glad i’am not the only one who has picked my chosen foods , pressed saved , then cannot arrange my menus , is there anyone out there who can answer this as it seems quite a few of us need an answer ??I was under the impression that there would be someone from the company to reply to any of our questions !!

I also am new. I have clicked on my chosen foods and the save button. But when I click on the menu planner, nothing. I only took the initial plan….but am wary when it says no I don\’t want the special but choose to spend regular price. I\’m not sure what I\’ve gotten myself into. Any suggestions?
