    I was scared for a second there, but I just checked, and there is no butterleaf lettuce in the database. If I search for "lettuce" or "butterhead lettuce" I find "Lettuce, butterhead". But there is no butterleaf lettuce in the database.

      D'oh. My bad. Perhaps then some "similar item" results for those of use who fatfinger the search terms?

        I'm finding that my O6:O3 ratios are off due to not being able to enter items that are grass fed or pastured except for beef. Do I need to enter these in as a custom food? If so, does anyone have a resource that I could use to estimate O6:O3 ratios for these foods?

          Unfortunately, there is very little information out there (I've looked). But, I'm still searching and if I do find enough data, I will be adding all the grass-fed varieties of beef.

          However, I'm afraid people will get a nasty surprise that grass-fed beef is not a good source of omega-3. It is healthier, more humane, and better for the environment, but there's still more omega-6 than omega-3, so if you eat nuts, avocados, or other sources of omega-6, grass-fed beef won't be enough to bring down your ratio, you'll have to eat fish or supplement with fish oil.

              Awesome. Just one tip: have it auto refresh when you change the quantity of an item. Other than that it's great! Thanks!

                I just tracked today and yesterday. Tons of data, Could I suggest if it's available Omega ratios for pastured eggs and butter?

                  Also SO delicious coconut milk beverage would be nice to include. I like to drink it in the morning to wash down eggs even though it isn't as primal as pure coconut milk

                    PaleoTrack does have coconut milk, but if you want to add your specific brand, you can add it yourself: http://paleotrack.com/foods/custom

                    As for pastured eggs and grass-fed beef and butter, I wish I had access to the nutrition data so I could add them to the database. But, unfortunately, there are only a few reports that mention a few of the differences, but not a complete nutrition breakdown.

                    If anyone finds complete nutrition data on pastured eggs and grass-fed beef and butter, please forward it to me and I will gladly add it for everyone.

                        THANKS! This is great, of course there are some suggestions, alot have already been posted here, but this alone is a great tool and I have used several online posting sites for many years.

                          Hi, great tool. Thanks.

                          Suggestion: There should be information about raw exclusively grass fed dairy products. I entered the butter I ate and the app started giving me dire warnings about my O3:O6 ratio as if it were CAFO butter.

                          ETA: Oops sorry, I just read the entry above about this. I had gone right from page one to here. I hope you find that data. Until grass fed pastured and organic varieties of dairy, meats, and eggs are included, it's not really very "Paleo".

                            Hi! This is an awesome tool, I just started using it yesterday. One suggestion for the interface: it would be great to be able to click on a food that's in your journal and see its nutritional information. Right now, you can see the nutritional info when you select a food to add to your journal, but not after you've already done it. It would be a handy thing, when looking back at your day's food intake.

                              This site Eat Wild - Health Benefits has some info that might be helpful in building your database.

                                Thank you so much for spending the time to create this very useful tool. Just one question. I make my own yoghurt and the calcium per 100g is 182.7mg. How would I find out what % that is. The database read it as 182.7%. It would probably be useful, at least to me, to be able to enter the nutrients as a measurement and let the database do the percentages if that's possible. Thank you.
                                Also how do I add a VitaminD3 capsule. I tried to make it a custom food but it doesn't change the intake value in my journal.
