Some of you may wonder why on earth we would want to talk about the facts of fruit or vegetables on a technology website, but when you consider that you can use your iPhone to learn about them it all starts to make sense. There are a number of apps on the App Store that will not only teach you the nutritional value, but also show you recipes as well.
One of the most important apps has to be “Kids Can Learn Fruits And Vegetables,” as it teaches you at a young age how important these foods are. Some children often go into a supermarket and look a little puzzled at all the different fruits and vegetables on show – even some of us adults struggle at times. Kids eat far too much junk food, so they need to know what foods are healthy for them. This app has 60 different fruits and vegetables, so allows you to familiarize yourself with them, and you can even score yourself on your knowledge.
Next up we have “Medicinal Power Of Vegetables by Kanchan Kabra,” which is a book. There are so many different vegetables that you can eat, but it is often hard to know which ones can do what for your health. There are those that can help to reduce the acidity and cholesterol in your body, knowing these will be invaluable. The app costs just $2.99, which is very cheap when you consider that this book will also teach you how to make medicines to cure certain illnesses by cooking certain vegetables.
The vegetables that we buy in our local stores today are not as good for you as they once were, this is because of the chemicals used to make them grow quicker and to keep pests away. You could buy organic, but as they are more expensive will be much harder to purchase the amount that you need. However, there is a solution, grow your own; the “A Guide to Growing Vegetables” app will be able to help you. This gives you useful tips when it comes to growing your own, such as which vegetables you can grow with your soil type, how to sow and also crop rotation. The cost of this app is $3.99.
Finally we have the “Magic of Vegetables,” which costs $4.99. This is a little more expensive than the others, so you would expect the app to offer much more. Once you have finished reading this book you should have a greater understanding of vegetables. Remember there is no substitute for this healthy food type, so try not to supplement them with pills.
