If your recipe is entered into Sparkrecipes, you can go to it. Above the Nutrition Info box, there is a button "Add This Recipe to my meal planner". Go ahead and do that. I think you might have to do each time if it's something you eat a lot of.
Then, once you have your recipes in your meal planner, and everything is all planned out, return to your Nutrition Tracker.
Scroll all the way to the bottom. There are a few buttons there, one of them reads "Grocery List for the week". Click that, and in the pop-up window, you can adjust the dates and check on "Show Custom Foods".
Ingredients for recipes that you have added and selected will show up in that grocery list. Sometimes the amounts come out wonky, so I would double check those once you print it out.
Hope that helps!

I love all of the healthy recipes that are on here and would like to use them to make a personalized meal plan, that will kick out a grocery list for me. I am doing a low carb meal plan but I am constantly substituting and editing, due to allergies. I have just spent the night looking for other software that offers this, but it means retyping the 100 odd recipes that I use.
So, here is what I am looking for. An addition, on its own or added to the Nutrition plan on Sparkpeople.
Meal Planning and Grocery list, that allows you to just click and add the recipe to the meal (breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks) plan, that will generate a grocery list. It would be helpful if we could delete and edit the grocery list. This way, everything is connected. Meal plan, recipes, nutritional information, Nutritional trackers and grocery list.
Make sense or am I crazy? Or if someone knows of a software that can do this, it would be helpful? I admit, if this was a bonus feature that had to be paid for, I would be the first in line.
