"CalCutter - An app for cooks from all walks of life."
This app developed by the NYC Dept. of Health allows one to enter their own recipe and the intended number of servings, and it then calculates the estimated calories per serving. If one wants CalCutter can convert the recipe into a lower-calorie dish by suggesting changes. The changes include alternative ingredients, healthier cooking methods and smaller portion sizes. The new recipe can be saved and shared with family and friends via email. (from NYC DOH website.)
CalCutter is a free app which connects users to information that helps them to make healthy dietary choices.
