Wholesome - Healthy eating recipes and nutrition vitamin tracker of whole foods
By Wholesome, Inc
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Winner of the 2014 Innov8 For health competition, Wholesome is the only experience that collects healthy recipes from the web, allows you to track them, and gives personal recommendations to optimize your nutrition.
RECIPE HEALTH SCORING
Wholesome scores recipes out of 10 points on their healthfulness. Points are added for nutrition density and deducted for things like too much sugar or sodium. Scores provide the feedback that allow you to compare recipes and make conscious decisions about what you eat.
EASY TO SPOT NUTRITION GAPS IN YOUR DIET
Wholesome allows you to track foods and recipes with one-click. This allows you to know which nutrients you’re lacking, and to be warned when you’ve had too much of a nutrient, like sugar or sodium.
SUGGESTIONS FOR WHAT TO EAT NEXT
Wholesome suggests recipes to round off your nutrition. Didn’t get enough iron and protein for breakfast or lunch? The app will suggest a recipe high in iron and protein for dinner.
PERSONALIZED TO YOU
According to the USDA, adult women are recommended to have twice as much iron as men and pregnant women need over three times as much. Just set your profile and the app will take all of these factors into account. You can also customize your own nutrient targets within settings.
INSTANT ACCESS TO YOUR FRIENDS’ RECIPES
With Facebook connect integration, any recipes you enter into the app are easily accessible to your friends. Browse your friends’ recipes to get inspired to eat the same healthy recipes that they are eating.

HOW WHOLESOME IS DIFFERENT
Wholesome focuses on the complete nutrition rather than just the calories. We believe that getting nutrition from natural whole foods is far better than getting it from synthetic pills. We're here to guide you on your journey for better health.

Like the concept, but leaves much to be desired
I like the concept and read good reviews, so I bought it. I am now not so sure it was a good idea. It is slow to process data, it's not user friendly entering new data, it gets stuck all the time, it does it work offline at all which means you can record things if you are out of reach of wifi or G3 etc. I expected something like the my fitness pal for food with better data, but the user interface is light years behind. In addition it makes no nutritional distinction between complex and simple carbs, which frankly is pretty basic if you know anything about nutrition. Now there are some minor irritants that I can live with, like the fact that it has no option for gluten free, or vegan (only vegetarian), and nothing for food allergies. As I said, if all the other things worked I could live the aforementioned oversights. Basically using the app takes a huge amount of time because the interface is so slow and I user friendly. The concept is good, but I would read a good nutrition book for now and wait until they make far more user oriented before buying it. The free version is not worth the time it takes to download.
Great idea, glitchy execution
I'm eating more whole / paleo foods, and I wanted to track the vitamins and minerals moreso than calories and macronutrients, so I got this app. This has a great idea behind it. I like visually seeing which foods I've eaten because it encourages me to keep eating a variety of whole foods, and the vitamin and mineral tracker is encouraging as well.
A few suggestions:
1) The app is slow to load various pages. I have to flip to yesterday and back to today to see a change I made (e.g. if I want to make sure a delete went through).
2) Let there be a setting where I can choose which categories to keep collapsed/minimized in the Nutrition Tracker. It's great that a lot of nutrients can be used, but the information would be more useful if the app would remember which ones I'm focusing on and which ones I don't want to see regularly.
3) I have only added one food to My Foods so far, but it is not showing up in the User Foods section. Why not?
For $30 a year, this needs better execution.
If you're having problems with the app...
I loved this app SO much before they updated it. The tracking is easy and very customizable. Unfortunately the update made everything go haywire.
After weeks with no update from the developers, I finally figured out the update defaulted the sugars to -1g. I altered the sugar goal to the previous default of 90g and everything seems to work now.
