Avoid exploding red blood cells? There’s an app for that.


Ohmigosh you guys! There’s an app to help you avoid GMOs and figure out what’s actually in your food, and it’s FREE!

Now, I just found out about it so I can’t say personally how awesome it is in practice (yet) but it’s so exciting that I had to share it right away: Fooducate is available for free for iPhone and Droids, and it won the US Surgeon General’s Healthy App Challenge. (Yeah, I didn’t know there was such a thing either.)

There’s a helpful video on that link that shows how super-easy it is to use (actually, they have a whole Fooducate channel on YouTube) and while it certainly doesn’t come into play at farmers markets and pick your own places, which I heartily encourage you to frequent frequently, it’s an incredibly handy way to make sure the things you’re putting in your body are safe for your body.

(Side note: did you know that we build new bodies on a regular basis? Some of our organs are completely rebuilt on a monthly basis, and most of our bodies are completely rebuilt each year. That whole thing about you are what you eat? It’s literal.)
