There is a HEALTHY app for that

So, I have expressed my love for my Christmas present a few times...I know.  I've become even more obsessed with it because of temple run all of the helpful apps. I think that technology can be a MAJOR time waster, but I also think it can be a huge benefit. It's all in how you use it.

There are some apps on my phone that I found to be EXTREMELY beneficial. I think that some of these tools are really great to help you get yourself on track, and keep yourself there! (Note: I found all of these apps on my own and got all of them for free.)
 I am only going to touch on a couple of the apps I'm loving right now, but plan to go into depth with some of the others in the future.

Fooducate is definitely a great app when it comes to food knowledge. You can either scan the bar code of a food you are looking at or search it manually. As you scan it in it gives the food you are looking at a grade. I scanned in these baby carrots I purchased today.
 It tells you the pros and cons of your food item, gives your food a grade, and offer suggestions for better food options if there are any. Awesome right?

My other absolute FAVE right now is the Lose It app. It is an app that helps you easily track your calories and exercise for the day, helping you to see where your calorie deficit lies.
There are a couple reasons I really like this app. I love that you can scan your food in. Instead of manually having to search for and enter in every item you can just scan in the bar code and the item pops up. You pick the quantity and BOOM done. You can do this with recipes too. I scanned in all the items of the soup I made today and entered in the serving size and instantly I knew the nutritional breakdown of my recipe. So fast and easy. It really is awesome.

Do you have a favorite App that encourages you to be healthy??

I'm going to have to check out some of those apps. I use my fitness pal which is similar to lose it, love that I can scan bar codes. I also use Electric Miles which post all my workouts to Dailymile.
