Change4Life Healthier Recipes

Tags: diet , nutrition

This colourful App provides over 100 calorie counted recipes, with a search function, vegetarian options, recipes grouped by meal (breakfast, lunch, evening meal and puddings) – and a handy meal mixer function. This allows you to put together your chosen breakfast, lunch and evening meal recipes to plan a day’s eating. There is also a shopping list function which recipe ingredients can be sent to and also emailed to other devices.

Calorie and key nutrient (protein, fat, saturated fat, carbohydrate, sugars, fibre and salt) information is provided per serving.  Most recipes serve 4 with a cost of around £5 to make.

There’s also links to simple healthy eating information, shopping and cooking tips, and seasonal fruit and vegetables.

Summary: A varied collection of practical, affordable and healthy everyday meals.  Great when you need inspiration for a weekday dinner or a different breakfast on the weekends but don’t want to get bogged down by fancy recipes or tempted by high fat takeaways or fry-ups!  The calorie and nutritional information makes it easy to add any of the dishes to a food tracking App if you want additional guidance for getting on track with healthy eating or weight management.
