I get the occasional email requesting a recipe be converted into metric units, or tempertures in Celsius. Well, now you can do it yourself. These two calculators are from labpixies.com. The first is a simple, yet very complete, units of measure calculator. It will convert any units of weight, volume or length. Now you can convert my quarts into your liters, and my ounces of weight into grams and visa versa. Just make sure you have the right setting regarding weight and volume; remember 8 ounces is cup by volume, but can also be half a pound. It will also convert my Fahrenheit temps to Celsius.
This second calulator can help you add up your daily calorie intake. If you click on the settings on the top you can also enter your age, weight, etc. and it will give you a daily guideline for total calories. As you click on the differnet courses, the options will change in the pull down menu.It doesn't have everything, but it's pretty good. Just make sure you check the right number of portions. I certainly don't count calories on a regular basis, but it's kind of interesting to add up an average day once and a while to see what's going on. It can be reset any time to start over.
