    Directions say divide between 4 bowls. Nutritional info says Serves 6….Which one is correct?

      Melanie, Divide between 4 bowls is correct. I have modified the nutrition info for 4 servings.

    I just got the perfect portions system. I do not understand
    how I translate recipes into it because the ingredients would belong in different containers.

      Eleanor, The best way is to understand what foods fit into: proteins, carbs, veggies, etc.. Some examples: Meats are protein, cereals (oats, rice, quinoa, etc.) are carbs, avocados are healthy fats…and so on. Hope this helps! 🙂
