Ottawa Citizen Nutrition Watch Week 11 - Patience

Yeah, yeah, it's a virtue.

The update from my sources strongly suggest that published nutritional analyses for Citizen recipes will be a done deal - just not for a while longer.

Apparently the Citizen is going through some sort of transition or something and that has put this project on the back, back, back burner.

Will get more uppity about things in the early Fall.

For now, I'll just keep on calculating:

Raspberry Shortcake
(per serving): 427 calories, 16g saturated fat, 433mg sodium, 43g total carbs.

Raspberry Cobbler

(per serving): 272 calories, 6g saturated fat, 416mg sodium, 42g total carbs.

Raspberry Sorbet

(per cup): 339 calories, 0g saturated fat, 40mg sodium, 90g total carbs.

Cajun Grilled Beef Flank Steak (Chimichurri to follow)
(per 1.5lbs of flank steak): 1369 calories, 32g saturated fat, 614mg sodium, 10g total carbs.

(per recipe): 1007 calories, 15g saturated fat, 195mg sodium, 11g total carbs.

Tuna Bruschetta

(per serving): 263 calories, 4g saturated fat, 330mg sodium, 29g total carbs.

[All recipes calculated using Mastercook 9.0. Today it took roughly 2 minutes per recipe]
