It’s the start of a new year, and with that, we enter the season of resolutions to lead a healthier lifestyle. But how do we turn that resolution into a solution when much unhealthier fast food options are much more easily accessible when spending all day driving from job to job?
Smartphone apps can streamline much of we do in our day-to-day [Check out this earlier post where we took a look at some apps that can help your business! Great Apps For Contractors], so why not let technology take the work out of finding healthy alternatives to the drive thru? Here are some of our favorite apps to help you make healthier choices at lunchtime!
HealthyOut is a GPS based quick, easy to use app that helps you locate healthier food choices nearby. You can apply filters for nutrition type, calories, type of cuisine, and many more to help tailor your results to your dietary needs! The app automatically filters menu items based on your dietary restrictions, or you can view the entire menu to make sure everyone on your team can find something they’ll enjoy! Just tap on the restaurant for more info and directions that open up in to your OS’s native maps app!
