Healthy Nutrition at Your Fingertips!

apps mobile

After completing the daily subway-work-workout-sleep routine, there’s not much time left for cooking, and the motivation to eat healthy gives in quickly. What could be easier than using your cellphone to read up on the subject during your break, in the subway, or on the bus for some inspiration? Here are a few essentials among all the mobile apps and websites dedicated to nutrition!



For Canada’s 2014 Nutrition Month Campaign “Simply Cook and Enjoy!,” the Dietitians of Canada developed a mobile app that gives you recipe ideas for each day of the week and each meal of the day! Healthy options are at your disposal for busy mornings, lunchboxes, or dinners with friends!



Also a courtesy of the Dietitians of Canada, EaTipster provides daily tips to help you eat healthy. The advice is based on recent scientific research (that you can consult), and you can also share it with your friends! This app is available since March 2013, when the theme of the month was “Plan Shop Cook Enjoy!” Now, you have everything you need to limit your consumption of fast-foods and processed products!

Seafood Watch


You want to get the benefits of marine-based omega-3 fatty acids without having to worry about endangered species? This app will help you make responsible choices when it’s time to buy fish and seafood! It’s sushi time, and all you have to do is make the “best choices,” or choose the “right options”.

Chemical Cuisine

Because you are informed consumers, I bet you read the list of ingredients when you buy a product! You don’t know what to think of all the food additives with incomprehensible names? Chemical Cuisine tells you all about the use of each food additive, and provides a list of “safe” additives, as well as a list of those you should avoid.

For other mobile apps that will motivate you to eat healthy, read this article written a little while ago by one of my colleagues. Whether you need to count your calories or organize your fridge, you will find all the inspiration you need!

Do you know about any other essential mobile apps?

Holder of a bachelor’s degree in nutrition from McGill University, and member of the Ordre Professionnel des Diététistes du Québec, Caroline has been working as a nutritionist for Nautilus Plus since January 2013. A seasoned marathon runner with a passion for cooking, she also animates conferences and motivation groups about nutrition! “As I have not always been a keen athlete, I am very proud of having completed a marathon, and also of preparing the next ones! For me, nutrition is not only the key to optimal performance, but also a medicine in itself. Therefore, my objective is to encourage people to change their habits if they need to and motivate them to never give up, but first and foremost, make them realize that eating healthy is a pleasure that we are lucky to enjoy three times a day!”
