Date:Friday December 29, 2023
YouAte: Track Your Food Like Never Before
You Ate is a free app that puts a practical spin on the Instagram trend of food photography. All you have to do is snap a pic of your plate via You Ate, and the app creates a visual journal that allows you to concentrate on how foods make you feel and create health goals based on that. The app also times how long you wait between meals and snacks, which is great for first responders trying to remember to eat regularly throughout their shifts.
Save Your Sanity at the Grocery Store with Fooducate
Fooducate is another free option that makes understanding food labels easier and faster than ever. Just snap a picture of the label and Fooducate rates products on a simple scale from A (best) to D based on ingredients and nutritional value. In addition to taking the guesswork and time out of making healthy choices, Fooducate can track calories, macros, and micronutrients, takes into account popular diets (Keto-friendly!), and can connect you with a community of healthy eaters.
Eat Mindfully with Rise Up
