New Mobile Site and App to Help with a Delicious and Healthy Diet

I don’t know about you, but I am often on the run. Work, kids’ activities, events, errands and my own hobbies mean I’m often away from home with nothing but an apple and snack bag of baby’s Cheerios in my purse to fend off hunger. That just won’t work for me, I like food entirely too much to survive for hours on just that. And as much as I love our website and its diet-friendly choices (I’m also following the Weight Watchers
program), up until recently, it wasn’t at all easy to read it on my phone when I was away from home. Thankfully, with the new mobile HealthyDiningFinder.com and YumPower app, that has all changed!
HealthyDiningFinder.com mobile – The search I love in an easy to use and read format. If I’m out shopping, I can either enter a city or ZIP code to do a search – or look up a specific restaurant in the alphabetical search. For example, at my favorite local mall there is a Schlotzsky’s. I like to treat myself to one of their warm and toasty loaded sandwiches between battling it out at the Walmart and finding the latest book club pick at Barnes and Noble.
YumPower App – This app, developed by HealthPartners, a Minnesota health insurance company, using Healthy Dining’s restaurant nutrition data, not only lets you find Healthy Dining choices nationwide, but it also gives you the chance to voice your opinion. Any time I’m trying something new, I pull up the app to see what others have said and how many “yums” the menu item has.
I’m all about having plenty of tools at my disposal to help meet my goals – at home and on the run. For those of you with Android phones, be on the lookout for an app in the coming months!
