Happy 2017! I know it will be a great year for all of you.
As you step forth into another year of better and better health, you’ll want to know about this very helpful tool from The Weston A. Price Foundation (WAPF). They now have a
SHOPPING GUIDE APP!!
Figuring out which food brands, farms, and ingredients to trust has always been a challenge. So the WAPF created their annual Shopping Guide booklet that lists all the researched and approved nationally available brands.
But what if you want to search for a specific type of dairy product and see if any stores sell it near you? Or you want to choose between all the approved farms selling grass-fed beef or organ meats online? Find Real Food can help you search when you are at home, and now it’s easy to search on the go with their mobile app.
Available for both iOS and Android users, FindRealFood was updated in December 2016. It aims to simplify your grocery shopping and teach you about new approved foods. The data is backed by ten years of food quality wisdom from the experts at WAPF.
The app uses an extensive database of 15,000 products sold in 100,000 locations in the U.S. It’s easily searchable, using keywords within the thirty product categories. It includes helpful information, such as customer reviews and how products were selected and ranked.
You can try the app for free for 30 days, after which a subscription is available for only $3.99 for six months or $5.99 for a full year. Its an incredible bargain. Subscriptions support the ongoing research and vetting of foods, maintenance of the vast database of products and locations, development of further improvements to the apps, and support of other WAPF real food advocacy activities.
