Quick-reference Tools For Health Info
Personal nutritional density spreadsheet – Tool to roughly estimate my nutrient balance on a given day; based on info from “Nutrition Data” website. I copy foods into the ‘today’ sheet and it just adds up the amount of each nutrient at the bottom. Conditional formatting reflects how much I ate vs the daily recommendation.
Google Scholar – Search engine to provide only results which are scholarly articles. The first place I go to search for new research.
Nutrition Data – Vast database of nutritional info including Glycemic load, vitamin, mineral, and fat compositions for almost any food you can find.
Inflammation Factor Ratings – Database of how inflammatory or anti-inflammatory various foods are estimated to be.
Pesticide in produce rankings – Environmental Working Group’s 2014 “clean 15” and “dirty dozen” (best and worst) foods based on pesticide content (both lists are pretty much the same for 2015).
