My top 5 healthy apps that can make life easier!

Smart phones are a means to a way rather than a way to a means and offer lots of crazy info at hand.
Luckily for us, there has been an avalanche of apps that have appeared with the goal of improving our eating habits.  This is a list of my top 5 fave’s healthy eating apps.
1+ Food switch – Free itunes store
24 - My top 5 healthy apps that can make life easier!
Use your iphone to scan barcodes of packaged foods and see what’s in the foods you are eating.  The app brings up similar items that are healthier choices.  It really is a great app for taking the guesswork out of shopping.  Take it to the supermarket and scan away or surprise yourself with what is in your pantry already!!
Food switch is the result of 3 years research in Australia by The George Institute and is sponsored by BUPA health insurance.
2+ Chemical maze  – Lite version (free), Full version $7.49 itunes store
55 - My top 5 healthy apps that can make life easier!
What’s in your food? What’s in your cosmetics? Are you at risk? This is your ultimate shopping guide to get you through the Chemical Maze.
To use, simply type in the name of the food additive or cosmetic ingredient you would like to know more about; within seconds, the database provides you with detailed information regarding the ingredient’s function, potential effects, and possible uses. This is a great app to have on hand especially when you have little ones to check on what you are putting in their bodies and on their skin.
3+ Gluten free shopping list – $1.99 itunes store

If you have a gluten intolerance, or just feel better staying away from it then this app is for you.  Take the Gluten Free Shopping List shopping with you and use it as a reference guide, or even just be inspired to find food and recipes you have never had before.
4+  Slim Kicker – Free itunes store

This one is a little close to me as Christine, the developer asked me for my thoughts at conception.  She has done a fab job and I am blown away by the whole thing!
Slim Kicker turns your diet and weight loss goals into a winnable level up game.  Gain points as you eat healthy options, do more exercise and complete challenges such as ‘replace softdrink for a week”.  It has a community also where you can check in with others and seek advice. Very clever!5+ Superfoods HD – 99c itunes store
16 - My top 5 healthy apps that can make life easier!
With this app it lists an extensive list of ‘superfoods’ with a guide on health benefits for each one. There are over 300 recipes and ways to use them in your everyday meals. Love an app that makes life simple!

So there you have it, do you have any fave healthy eating/lifestyle apps that you use?
