HealthyOut - Find a Healthy Meal Wherever You Are

Created by Wendy Nguyen.

I'm a Designer in New York, NY. I work at HealthyOut. Previously, I've worked at SocialChorus, Bain & Co.. I earned a B.S. from UC Berkeley.

Project Description

HealthyOut is a smart meal recommender that allows New Yorkers to quickly locate healthy meals at local restaurants. With a few simple clicks, users can search for dishes by nutrition preferences (like calories, nutrition tags like Heart Healthy, Low Fat, Vegetarian) as well as what they're in the mood for (cuisine, main ingredient, preparation style).

We now spend 50% of our food dollars outside of the home but it's where we make our least healthy decisions. By using technology to help people proactively make healthy choices, we can start to influence better eating decisions while creating incentives for the restaurant industry to create healthier meals. HealthyOut is now working with restaurants all over the city to display our HealthyOut stickers so customers know where to find a healthy meal.

Since our launch, HealthyOut has cracked the Top 5 of iTunes Food & Drink and been recommended by doctors, nutritionists, personal trainers and more.

Hi Wendy, are you still looking for designers? I really like the idea of this and would be cool to bring this to the UK.
