Nutrition wrapped up with a bow

Check out this fancy dancy nutritional website.

You can look up anything, including fast food, and see probably more information than you ever wanted. It's got the regular caloric and nutritional values but it also has the nutrients, glycemic index, the ratio of where the calories come from (protein, fat, carbs), and all sorts of stuff, most of which is in pretty looking graphs. I like graphs.

It even helps you look up foods that are better for you so you can make informed choices when you, say, walk into a Krispy Creme or Starbucks. Because I sure as hell am not giving up dessert completely (see last post), but I could certainly make some better choices.
