Celebrate every bite when you eat well – those items you know are good for your body.
- that leafy green with the nutrients to fight inflammation
- eating a rainbow of colors to meet your body’s nutritional needs
- all the yummy foods, including dark chocolate, high in anti-oxidants
- and more, according to your body type.
What about exploring foods to build a better body? How to easily identify the vitamins and nutrients in food, and their impact on the body?
Guess what? There’s an app to play with… if you’re curious. It won the 2014 Innov8 For Health Business Expo, and it’s created by a husband and wife team who believe in living a healthy lifestyle over fad diets and calorie obsession.
This app, called Wholesome, covers many areas. What drew me to it at first was its “eat the rainbow” option. Of course, if you want to use the entire functionality of the app, there’s a cost.
Wholesome tracks 90 nutrients including: macronutrients, vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, and omega 3’s and antioxidants. Using Wholesome you can easily identify gaps in your nutrition and get whole food suggestions to improve your diet. You can track foods or an entire recipe with just one-click. Save your own recipes in the app so that you can easily track them anytime. Wholesome syncs with Apple health.
To eat more mindfully, I’m beginning to have a little fun exploring this app – so far, just the free version. I click on an ingredient and see what kind of nutrients/vitamins, etc is a part of each food. Learning is something to celebrate also!
Do you have any app recommendations you use?
