Is all I blog about anymore health and fitness? Don't worry soon I'll blog about the Barbie Dream House from the late 1970s that I've been spray-painting and the furniture I'm remaking from eBay. So if you prefer craft posts I'll have one soon.
But I told you this year's one and only goal was "Be Healthy". I'm serious about it.
I never had a smart phone until right before Evie was born when we looked at the plans with Sprint and realized it wasn't going to save us much for me to stay with a regular phone. And I really love it. So good thing it wasn't that much more money. I'm an addict now.
Here are a few apps related to health and fitness that I love.
My Fitness Pal
[Available on iphone, Android, Blackberry, iPad and Windows Phone, free]
I've always heard the saying "focus on what you can eat, not what you can't eat" and found it kind of trite and not that helpful. But actually what I have found is that what works for me is finding healthy things to be excited to eat, and that means cooking. The smart phone makes it easy to pull up recipes in the kitchen too. So here are a few apps I've used:
Aren't we all visual when it comes to food? I don't pin healthy recipes exclusively but I try to not pin every indulgent dessert that looks yummy on pinterest. But I can't help but pin a few less healthy ones.
The app makes it easy to pull up things I've pinned when I'm in the kitchen (or to search for new ones by keyword). My recipe board is here. And I have a board here of things I've tried from pinterest (including recipes) with notes on how they went.
[Available for now only on iPhone but I hear they are working on an Android app, free. -- Oh and Android users can just access the Pinterest site through the mobile browser for now]
These are really good general recipe apps.When you need to just "search" for something particular.
All Recipes has a regular search feature and then it also has this spinner:
Epicurious I haven't used much but it seems good too:
For both of them I find that the reviews of other users are really helpful.
Peas and Thank You
Anyway, that's it. I don't tend to accumulate too many apps, just a few I love. Let me know if I've missed any revolutionary apps you think I should try. :)
