what websites/apps for tracking the nutrition of my actual diet?

Nutrition website/app filter: I want to track the nutritional values of what I actually eat in relation to accepted norms of good health. I've used this website: http://www.myfoodrecord.com/mainnat.html
, which sorta does what I want, but I'm left feeling there's probably something better out there these days.

I tend to fall into habits with my food choices, which is fine except when I end up leaving out some important vitamin/nutrient, etc., then feel the effects over time without realizing the specific cause, so I'd like to track these patterns and compare them to different, accepted definitions of a "good diet."
As I mentioned, the website I linked above kinda does this, but the food choices listed in step #1 are somewhat limited and, more importantly, the nutritional recommendations under step #3 seem more vague than they could be. There must be something better, right?
FWIW, I'm not as concerned with the calorie counting/weight loss angle, which seems to be the focus for a lot of site/apps, and I'd prefer something really simple, uncluttered, and user friendly. I've only looked at websites thus far, but I guess there would be app options as well, since I have an iPhone and MacBook Pro (previous app questions focussed on Android).
