Holy calories batman

According to the revised numbers, you are supposed to get 6 servings out of 1 piece of bolani. Not quite sure how that is possible. And if Jeekinz numbers are correct, that means each serving is 7 points, making an entire piece of bolani 42 points. Chocolate cake isn't 42 points so something is off.

The recipe I entered was for 6 servings, which I guess is 6 bolani's. How big are they anyway? Diameter in inches.

If the above numbers are divided by 6, then the points come down to 1 per serving. MUCH better!

A 10" flour tortilla is one serving. 1/2 cup of unsalted frozen spinach is 32 calories.

This means 308 calories per serving. The recipe I entered to analyze makes 6 servings so the whole recipe would be 1848 calories.

Wait...I might need some help here.

It says one tortilla is 70 grams, but the Nutrition Facts says 264 grams for one serving. I don't get it. Is the bolani like a small quesadilla with a top and bottom bread?
