Allow deductions/negative quantities.

Meals are often listed here is a complete form. Let's say I buy a supermarket salad that comes with a dressing, but I don't use the dressing, the nutritional information includes that dressing. It's possible to find values for the dressing and do the math to create a new food (e.g. "xxx salad without dressing") but it would be much easier if I could simply enter a deduction or negative quantity of dressing and have MFP deduct it.
