One of the best ways to be healthy is to incorporate more protein into your diet. We'll show you how apps can help you to do just that.
More than three years ago, I decided I wanted to get healthier so I went on Weight Watchers. One of the things I found out by doing this was that the more protein that food or recipe had in it, the lower number of points it had. It's been three years and I've kept the weight off, mainly because I remembered what I learned while doing the program. It also didn't hurt that I already liked the things I ate, such as chicken tacos and yogurt.
One of the best ways I have found to keep protein in my diet and give myself and my family some variety is to find new recipes. I even gave my dad's lasagna wrapup recipe a protein boost by adding meat to it (hamburger for my mother-in-law and husband and chicken for myself). My dad's diabetic, and I recommended to my mom that he tries it next time to help slow the sugar crash next time. Things like pasta and pizza can wreak havoc on blood sugar and cause crashes.
Whether you are trying to lose weight or just trying to eat healthier, one of the best things you can do is keep a food diary. This will help you know what you are eating. You can say how you are feeling, and it might tell you a little bit about yourself. If your goal is to eat more protein, keeping a food diary will help. It can show you where your triumphs were and where you might have fallen flat. iEatBetter is a great app to help you keep track.
Finally, eating more protein can be expensive. That's where apps can help you as well. There are plenty of coupon apps that you can download to your phone that will alert you when you can save money on things like meat and yogurt. We also have recently started a service where you can sign up for deal alerts. How it works is anytime one of our curator team members posts a deal in a category you selected, you get an email. It doesn't cost you anything. In fact, it can save you time and money. It's a handy way to help you save money and find out where the deals are.
