Default Online nutrirional information

I had the best nutritional information website bookmarked and I lost it. I am using FitDay to track my calories but I do not like its search function. It takes me forever to find what I am looking for. Does anyone know of a good website to get my calorie info from?

Honestly I've found just googling _____ (insert food) + nutritional info works just great. It's quick, and 99% of the time I can click on the first search result and get what I need.

I used to use sparkspeople.com, it works pretty well. They have an option on the nutrition search that you can search options inserted by other members, and it all is pretty darn accurate. Hope this helps!

I like The Daily Plate. Of course, when I sign into it now, it comes up as Livestrong.com

I second Google. I use Fitday also and I get annoyed with the search feature too. Once I find something though I customize it and that way it is easy to log it in next time I eat it.

I use myplate (daily late / livestrong) for my daily tracking but this site:

http://www.nutritiondata.com/

seems to have the most complete breakdown for lots of things.

I agree that fitday's search bites now. Did it get worse? It seems like even the most basic things are nearly impossible to find these days.
