Since August of last year my mother (Victoria Boutenko) has been working hard on a surprise project and it has finally been completed. Apple has approved the first ever Green Smoothie iPhone Application! If you own an iPhone, you can now have instant access to countless green smoothie recipes on the go!
What makes this app unique, apart from being the first green smoothie recipe app ever to be released, is the depth of nutritional information it brings to the table. In addition to having access to the easiest, most delicious smoothies, you can now instantly reference the health benefits associated with every ingredient of the smoothie you choose. For example, if you see a smoothie recipes with raspberries, parsley, and lemon, the app will disclose what each of those foods is good for… Raspberries are a great preventive measure for warding off colon cancer, parsley has been shown to inhibit tumor formation in the lungs, and lemons are useful in conditions like colds, flu’s, and recurrent ear infections.
It took my mom and myself five months to compile the scientific information to create this application. Once compiled, we sifted through all of it and formatted it in an easily comprehensible manner. All of the nutritional highlights come form the best, most trusted sources among which is www.nutrtiondata.com (a website based of USDA data).
To make this program even more appealing, Victoria purchased every ingredients from each one of the smoothies listed in the app and hired our good friend / brilliant photographer Robert Petetit to capture the artistic images of the produce.
This applications is available for $1.99 through your apple itunes.
This could be a great last minute gift for friends and relatives who have iPhones.
