Website: Nutrition Data

Nutrition Data is an interesting website that lets you input a recipe to see the nutrition facts on homemade food. It is really a great tool if you have a child who has a health condition such as diabetes where it is important to calculate the carbs in a serving. I love the Protein Quality graph which visually depicts how complete a protein a food is. You can also click "Find foods with complementary protein" underneath the Protein Quality graph to find other proteins which would have complementary amino acids. An amino acid score of 100 means that the food is a complete protein.
