National Food Safety Database
"The goal of the National Food Safety Database project is to develop an efficient management system of US food safety databases that are used by the Cooperative Extension Service (CES), consumers, industry, and other public health organizations. The end result of such a management program is a highly informative, efficient and accurate website which will provide one-stop shopping for food safety information"

Your Nutrition Profile
A project of the Dietitians of Canada, this site allows you to calculate the nutrition content of an average day's food intake. Keep in mind that they base their discussions of recommended consumption of nutrients on the Canadian standards for "Recommended Nutrient Intakes" which are generally slightly different than the United States standards. Information given at this or any other nutrition site should be taken as guidance only, and should not replace the advice of a qualified dietitian.

iDrink
Just pick the ingredients you have on hand from a thoughtfully prepared list, and iDrink comes right back at you with every imaginable cocktail you can prepare. Or you can skip the whole ingredient thing and just search the drink database for something new. A good site for anyone who wants to be a bartender or look just like one.
