VIRTUAL HEALTH BY LAURIE DAVIES SUPERTRACKER Eating nutritious meals in the right portions will help you and your family stay healthy. But mouth-watering, healthy menus don’t just happen. They take planning. Tap into this quick collection of USDA tools and databases to make your meals healthier than ever and to take the pressure off the cook. FOOD-A-PEDIA Need to make a quick decision or food comparison? Look up almost any food by general category (e.g., carrots, ice cream) or brand name for an instant breakdown of empty calories, fat, sodium and sugar. Now, it’s time to get personal. Starting each morning with breakfast, SuperTracker’s bank account-like ledger subtracts calories from a total allowance of 1,200 calories daily. Meanwhile, a real-time bar graph helps you see how your food intake stacks up against fruit, vegetable, whole-grain, dairy and protein recommendations. RECIPE FINDER Want to find a new way to cook sweet potatoes? Or a new recipe for your blender, wok or skillet? This database links you to thousands of recipes submitted by health professionals and organizations (such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Heart Association). Search by ingredients, ethnic preference, cooking equipment or nutrient requirements. Great health information—anytime, anywhere—is yours FREE with iTriage.
