Appy Hour: Fooducate
I am so over calorie counter apps. It seems they never have the item I’m looking for or I need to scroll through a billion product names. Plus if you cook it can take twenty minutes to just key in all the ingredients. Food is supposed to be fun! But this app is a must have for any grocery shopper. It scans the product barcode (it boasts the largest database of UPCs!) and then grades the food. If a food has a low grade, it will suggest healthier alternatives. It’s easy to add comments and read comments other fooducate users have left. So it’s kind of like grocery shopping with a nutritionist! Best of all, this is not a dieting app and it does not use triggering language in its nutritional tips. It just wants you to feel good.
