What's Fresh

In an attempt to incorporate fresher foods into my diet, I’ve become a “localvore” whenever possible. That means I attempt to eat fresh foods grown in my area when I can find them. How do you find out what’s fresh in your area? If you’re an iPhone user, you can go to the iTunes App Store and search for “What’s Fresh”. This app uses the iPhone’s GPS capabilities to determine your location and lets you know what fruits and vegetables are currently in season in your area.

Get Healthy, Stay Healthy!

These iPhone apps help you find fresh food and quit smoking.

BroccoliIn the last issue, I wrote about losing weight with the iPhone by using apps such as Edibles Food Journal and Restaurants (“Lose Weight with the iPhone,” page 64, Vol. 1, No. 2). Losing weight is great, but it’s not the be all and end all—getting healthy should be your real goal. For example, your food decisions shouldn’t all be about calories and carbohydrates; you should be concerned about the quality of the food you eat. Note also that healthy people exercise regularly and tend to have a higher muscle-to-fat ratio. Muscle is heavier than fat, and as you build more of it, you might not lose as much per week.

Wanted: Foldable, Portable iPhone Keyboard

image

 Attention product developers at MacNally, Belkin, etc. For the love of all that is holy can someone please develop a foldable, portable external keyboard for both the iPhone and iPod touch. Am I the only one who has been dying for one of these to be out on the market? I know that MacNally had created a bluetooth external keyboard last year that never made it to the market due to the fact that it required a Bluetooth connection which was not available until this past week when the iPhone 3.0 was released.
