There are a whole bunch of apps that count calories and nutrition but what about free food apps? You know the ones that actually give you recipes that will help you with losing body fat.
It’s alright having calorie counters but if you’re still eating junk then they really don’t mean a lot do they? I bought a book recently called “lean in 15” and it has some phenomenal recipes in that are quick and delicious, however, I found it just takes up much-needed room along with all my pots, pans and ingredients.
Also, I found myself using the internet to search some of the terms used and it got me thinking what apps can I get on my phone where I can quickly access the net if I need them.
I have done some research to bring you the most powerful food apps on android and IOS that will bring you mouth-watering dishes at the touch of your fingertips!!

Last Word on Best Food Apps
There seems to be more choice for Iphone but these apps are a fresh of breath air as there are so many calorie counters in the app and play store that we have actually forgot about the food itself.
Personally, I struggle with the whole eating out and what’s actually in my food so kafoodle will be a great asset for me and my weight management I have an android phone and feel a bit disappointed that I can’t get my hands on big barn.
I would love to hear your thoughts on these apps especially if you have used any just pop comments below.
