A Helpful Tool!

So I don’t know about you guys, but I love nutrition tools!!

It’s always nice to know what is IN your food and how good it is for you right?

Just this morning I found Food Facts and am super excited about it!

You plug in a food (or recipe, UPC code etc) and up pops a nutrition screen

tool bar

For example Nutritional Yeast

Nooch

It gives your it’s health score, why it’s good) or bad, and the ingredients – which it will highlight the ingredients you should avoid or that are controversial.  It also lists the allergens!

How awesome is this?

Here is another one.

SO COOL! 

It also goes farther and gives you a nutritional label and even Weight watchers points for the item!

There is also a recipe finder that is great for all the allergy people out there!

How awesome is this? (Just for the record, I am getting absolutely nothing from this, I just thought it was so awesome that I asked if I could do a blog post about it!!)

You can either find the website here

Or on facebook!

I hope you guys like this stuff too?  It’s fun to plug in an ingredient and be able to see immediately where it ranks on the “healthy scale”!!

Let me know if you find something that surprises you!!
