Do you feel good?
If you don't it might be interesting to track a couple days and see if anything obvious pops up.
If you don't and are eating a variety of natural foods from solid sources with minimal processing, than you are probably doing fine on these and you should only track if you like that sort of thing.
I don't track because I have noticed that when I do I tend to eat the same things a lot more often to make tracking easier.
I use Cron-O-Meter as well, but it doesn't track some essential nutrients, probably because they're not in the database:
Vitamin B7 (Biotin), Chloride, Chromium, Cobalt (part of B12), Iodine, Molybdenum, Nickel, Sulfur, Vitamin K2 (as opposed to K), and probably a few others
I've been wondering myself how to ensure you're getting enough of those. Perhaps there's a chance most are covered as long as those that are tracked are covered, and you're eating fish or taking some iodine.
I'd approach this the other way 'round:
If you are worried about them, do not try to chase micronutrients! Instead allow yourself more creativity and variety on your plate. This way you'll turn a game of negativity (worrying about micros) into a nice adventure in seeking out new groceries and ingredients. The micro stuff will sort itself out this way without you even noticing it :)
So why not try to have a different vegetable every day? Go for different game meats & acquire a taste for offal. Bacon can have so many different facets when used in combination :) ...
