Need a little help coming up with nutritious (and delicious) grocery lists? Do you have certain medical or dietary restrictions too? Let us introduce you to ShopWell!
www.shopwell.com is a website designed to do all the leg work of personalizing grocery shopping lists. The website sorts through all the technical, nutrition information found on food labels and offers simple suggestions for grocery lists based on your personal profile. Personal profile you may ask? The website prompts you to enter a few things about yourself, for example, do you have any food allergies? high cholesterol? are you trying to lose weight or maintain a healthy lifestyle? These simple questions will develop a profile so they can accurately suggest foods for you.
My favorite feature....the Trade-Up. Once your profile is established you can browse your favorite grocery items to see if they have any suggestions, based on your personal profile, for healthier options. For example: I love pretzels, so I searched my favorite brand and style (Snyder of Hanover Multi-Grain Sticks) and they turned out to be a medium match for me with a 52/100 rating. They automatically suggested a few options that included Snyder of Hanover Muli-Grain, Lightly Salted, Tortilla Chips with a rating of 78/100, how great is that!
Take some time to delve into this website, you will be pleasantly surprised. You can even make profiles for your whole family: this is great for anyone with allergies like peanuts or gluten...they do the hard work of investigating the ingredients for you!
Enjoy and happy eating!
