Default Nutrition Facts offer

I love the grind-it-yourself organic dry roasted peanuts at Whole Foods. No added salt or oils, just pure dry roasted peanuts! A little goes a long way for me, especially when I mix a 3 to 1 ratio of ground peanuts to organic honey. Well, it's easy to track the honey but the penuts required me to create a Custom Food so I just did all the leg work. Now, I'm thinking others might appreciate the opportunity to benefit from the fruits of my labors. I got the information from the following three sites and cobbled it together:
American Peanut Council
Nutri-Facts: Nutrition Facts, Food Labels, Diet, Fitness, Exercise, Health, etc.
Potassium Essentials

Here's the facts:
