What are you eating?

Ever wonder about the nutritional value of papaya? Ever wonder whether iceberg lettuce is really as useless as it tastes?

The same folks who brought you Condé Nast Traveler, GQ, Vogue, Vanity Fair, Wired, The New Yorker and many other edgy national publications have compiled data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture to show you the value of your food.

NutritionData.com is derived from information found on the USDA Web site, but the former is clearly easier to understand and far more visually-appealing than the latter. (Turns out iceberg lettuce isn't entirely worthless after all!)

 There's a lot more to the site - healthy eating advice, a daily needs calculator, food comparison charts, and tons more.You should consult a professional before making any big changes to your lifestyle, but for quick help with your dietary choices, that site looks pretty useful.

 As always, thanks for reading Illinois Times!
