Figuring it all out

The problem with the recipes we are all used to is most do not have any nutrition facts included. I recently discovered a useful website by the USDA- USDA Nutrient Data Nutritional information can be found for just about any food or ingredient. It's especially useful for unpackaged items without nutritional labels, in particular fresh veggies, meats and other staples. Use it to check up on what you're eating.

The site is not perfect- it is a government site after all. You may want to limit your search terms. It doesn't seem to be able to handle more than a word or two, so search one term and wade through the results. Hope it helps!
