This app helps translate the confusing nutrition lingo and
helps you see stuff that manufacturers don’t want you to notice, such as
excessive sugar, preservatives, etc.
It is extremely easy to use, all you do is scan the barcode of the food
you are interested in and it will grade the food from A to D. It highlights good and bad points of
the food and the coolest thing, I think, is it also lists alternative foods
that are similar and have the same or better grades!
Food Calorie Counter and Restaurant Nutrition
This app helps you
quickly find healthier on the go options.
Pick the name of Restaurant and will list all menu items. Click on each to see the full nutrition
facts including calories, fat, protein, carbohydrates, sodium, etc. Great for people who don’t want to food
journal but know that eating out is their downfall.
Allrecipes, Epicurious, Foodnetwork, Recipegoldmine
These apps have easy and great recipes. I particularly like kraftfoods. All recipes are usually around 5 or so
easy-to-find ingredients, 30 min or less to cook, and each recipe has all
nutrition facts listed.
Happy New Year!!
