Most of us are becoming much more conscious of the importance of a balanced diet, but statistically a third of our caloric intake occurs when we eat away from home.
In the past, there wasn’t a whole lot of information available that would help us make good choices, but today nutritional information for restaurants is out there if you’re willing to take a few minutes to find it.
One web resource that’s making it much easier is a site called MenuStat because it’s a huge database of nutritional information that makes it easy to search and analyze what you’re interested in eating.
MenuStat is a free nutritional database of over 35 thousand food items served by the nation’s largest restaurant chains that it aggregates from nutrition information posted on restaurant websites since 2012.
