I love food.

The first step is admitting I have a problem, right?

I hate diets. But, since I'm not getting any younger, and my cholesterol levels don't seem to be getting any lower, I decided to at least pay attention to what I was eating. I tried several calorie-counter apps on my phone, but they were all kind of boring. I had been using Evernote Food to keep track of epic (or just above average) meals, so I decided to start using Evernote Food to track all of my meals. Meaning, every single thing I eat gets recorded in Evernote Food before I eat it. Because I can add photos, it creates an awesome, visual record of what I've been eating. I've also been trying to remember to add any beer I consume, to give myself an idea of how it is affecting my health. Evernote Food doesn't track calories (though you could add the data in the notes section,) it just gives you a basic idea of what you're consuming. Over time, I get a good look at where I need to improve. For example, I notice I haven't had any veggies lately. Bad. Bad. Bad.

Also, since I got the new puppy, I've been too wiped out to actually cook, so I've been living on frozen dinners. Time to change that.

Whether you're on a diet, or just trying to grab an overview of what you're cramming down your gullet, Evernote Food is a great way to do it.

And don't forget the main reason to use Evernote Food: to record not just the food, but the people and the experience surrounding your meals.
