Shannon Center Weekly Nutrition Tip

As smartphones become more popular, many people are looking up diet, exercise, and nutrition information on their phones. Here is a list of apps you can download to keep you accountable over the holidays.

These phone apps are a great way to log your food vs. a handwritten journal. New editions also let you scan barcodes, so nutrition information is automatically loaded into your daily food log. How convenient!

Another great category of apps is recipe finders. These help you find quick, easy, and healthy recipes right from your phone. Other categories to search include running/walking mileage apps, pedometers, water intake apps, and coupons.
