Organized Eating At Your Finger Click!

by Christina Meyer-Jax, Tastemaker in Residence

I literally have crisis moments about my poorly organized online photos!  To lose these valuable visual moments would be crushing.  Similarly I’ve had heart-thumps when I considered how scattered my recipe collections were too!  And dang, I work in food and nutrition.  So I picked up my favorite and best organization tool (my trusty Mac) and went hunting for recipe management apps!  If you want to eat well friends, mise en place is the key!

What I found was a treasure trove of different apps with a variety of functions depending on what you are looking for.  Here are some of my top finds:

1. MacGourmet Plus 

2. Plan to Eat

3. Paprika

4. ChefTap

5. Basil

6. Evernote Food

7. Big Oven

I am betting that I am only scratching the surface of what is out there.  Have you tried any of these apps? What did you like about them? Are there others out there you like more?  What functionalities (oh I so wish there was an app or software that could...) are missing?

What I do know is that being organized with your recipes and meal planning equals better eating.  So bring it on...I'd love to hear what works for you!  Cheers to an organized meal planning year ahead!
