Fooducate Yourself

Have you ever felt completely overwhelmed by a simple trip to the grocery store?  Or felt so stressed by the prospect of what to buy that you just end up eating out?  If so, you’re not alone.

With so many products, labels, ingredients, and conflicting nutrition information, it’s often hard to accomplish the basic task of grocery shopping.

Of course, you have Eating Made Easy to help guide you 🙂  But you also have access to a great app (available for iphone, ipad, and Android) called Fooducate.

Fooducate acts as your dietitian sidekick while you shop.  You simply scan an item with your phone and it gives you a grade (A, B+, C- etc) for that food so you know whether it’s a healthy choice or not.  The grades are based on extensive nutrition analysis and Fooducate receives zero funding from the food industry, so you can be sure that the information you receive is trustworthy.

Fooducate also has a blog which covers all sorts of relevant nutrition topics in a reliable, straightforward fashion.

When you’re not using Eating Made Easy, I highly recommend Fooducate!
