Introducing Makeena!

“I want to eat healthier food, but it’s so expensive!”

That’s something we’ve all heard…and probably said. Then there’s the conundrum of trying to figure out what to do with weird foods like fennel or mustard greens.

Well, something very exciting is on the horizon that will help with both of these problems. And it wouldn’t be exciting without also being in true 21st century app form of course!

Introducing Makeena®!! I cannot wait for this app to be available. Basically, here is what it does. It provides you with all kinds of coupons (NON-paper form, thank god) for healthy foods—including produce!—that you’ll get access to right in the store as you’re shopping. All you have to do is scan the bar code on those delicious Amy’s brand vegan burritos and your coupon is right there for you.  It doesn’t matter what store you’re in, either. You can be shopping at Ralph’s or at Whole Foods. Either way, you’ve got your coupons. At the register Makeena tallies all your coupons up for you and the register scans them. It will be so easy! Finally these expensive brands will be more affordable so that we can all be healthier without breaking the bank!

Makeena also gives you recipes (remember that fennel?), nutritional information, shopping lists, and more.

The trick is how to get this awesome app into our phones NOW! It takes time and money, people. So be patient, keep your eyes peeled for updates and if you’re feeling generous then help them out with their fundraising.

To follow Makeena and be one of the first to get the free app when it’s ready to launch, go like the Makeenaco Facebook page or follow them on Twitter.

Most importantly, check out their video and give a few bucks to help them on their Crowdfunder page!

Here’s to more delicious, healthy food and money left in our pockets!

We would like to give a special thanks to Simone from Life As a Wave for being our first  guest blogger and introducing us to such a great new app! We are so excited about this! We also want it to happen NOW! :) Thanks again, Simone!
