What's Appening: Out To Eat
By Gail Suberbielle
Staying fit isn’t just about exercise; it’s also about a healthy lifestyle, which includes eating well or “right.” Sometimes that can be difficult, especially if you’re eating out. The Healthy Out app helps users to stay on track with what they eat at their favorite restaurants. Search by location to find the restaurant, then enter any other factors you’re looking for like low-carb, low-fat, vegetarian, gluten-free, paleo, etc. Users also can filter by cuisine, ingredient, or type of dish, or use the app’s most popular filter “Not a Salad.” Cost: Free.
What we like best about Zipongo is that it combines two user-favorite features: healthy eating and saving money. The Zipongo app helps users to create healthy meals but also provides grocery discounts and deals to help make those healthy meals cost-effective as well. Weekly healthy eating tips inspire users, and digital coupons or information about in-store bargains help the wallet stay fit as well. Users who are following vegetarian, paleo or gluten-free diets can search recipes following those restrictions, and the app helps users plan weekly meals or will even plan it for them. Cost: Free.
