If you'd like to edit an existing NB Recipe (NutriBase Recipe – Recipes included with the software), it’s best practice to first save a copy of it to one of your own Recipe Folders (like the default “General” folder), then edit the saved copy of the original Recipe. Doing this will keep all your NB Recipes in their original state.

To save a copy of an NB Recipe, highlight it, right click, then select the "Save as" option. Edit the food name it suggests to you or give it a totally different name as desired. Click the “Okay” button.

You use this same procedure to edit one of the Recipes you created. For example, you may have created a soup Recipe and you want to create two variations of this original Recipe – one is a lower sodium version and one is a hot and spicy version.

Open the Recipe. Right click. Select “Save as.” Save twice – once to give it a name indicative of a lower sodium version and another indicative of a hot and spicy version of the original Recipe. After you save these two Recipes, open them, one at a time and make the required changes.

Once you have saved the copy of your Recipe, you may open it and edit it by adding ingredients, deleting ingredients, or changing serving amounts.
