Hey, Mark. Thanks for doing this.
Times recipes never move with nutrition analysis on recipes. Since I know it's not a question of lack of resources, I'm curious about the policy on that. Is there a paper-wide policy?
As a writer, do you have an opinion on the value (or lack of value) of nutrition analysis per-serving? Do you get much feedback from readers on that?

Honestly, I don't know. And I think nutritional analyses are notoriously inaccurate anyway.

You're the first!
