Default Beef/Sausage w/cheese recipe all red?

My beef/sausage w/cheese recipe comes up at .1 carb per serving, but the little graph shows all red. ?????? What's with that?

I'll bite!

Does your recipe have any other ingredients? What is the carb count of the sausage you use? Either might be the reason for the red indicator.

Nothing else, just 1.5 lb lean beef & 1 lb sausage browned. Spread some on a plate and sprinkle about 1/4 cup cheddar cheese on top. So shouldn't it be almost all protein & fat?

Boy! I don't know what to tell you, Cats! I entered the recipe just as you wrote it above, using 95/5 ground beef, plain ground pork, and regular cheddar cheese. The little icon was all red! I checked my other recipes, and none of them were like that, except for my homemade BBQ sauce (which is appropriate.)

I'm baffled! I don't pay any attention to those little icons. Just out of curiosity, what are the numbers at the bottom of your recipe? Do they show almost all fat and protein, with hardly any carbs? I've already deleted mine, so I can't check for myself.

I would say if those total numbers seem to be in the correct proportions, then you can safely ignore the little icon. The amounts that will be recorded in your Daily Entry when you eat this recipe would be based on the numbers, I'm almost certain.

Looks like a bug in the pie chart/icon.

Thanks! I was hoping you'd pop in with an answer, because I really was curious about what the problem was!
