Using the SP 'reports' feature is a great way to check the balance of your nutritional and activity tracking. It's on the Start page near the top just under the H of Your Health. If you track your nutrition and activity it gives a lot of really helpful information in graphs and charts.
Use the USDA Nutrient Database for Standard Reference.... it's what the industry uses for "official" nutrition info and you can have it report the nutrition for the EXACT serving size you're using (the default is to report in a 100g basis.)
Google search for "USDA Nutrient Database" (not sure if they let you put links in here)
