A new search engine has nutrition on the brain while a website is looking to help you keep more dollars in your wallet when it comes to medical bills. And listen up gamers: Xbox continues a great deal for gamers, now at more stores.
A Search Engine for Eats
Those who like to track their nutrition via smartphone will want to check out this new search engine. At NutritionRank.com lets you compare over two million different meal and food types so you can get maximum nutritional value with every bite.
Search by brand, category, or nutrient and NutritionRank will show you the best options according to rank and color – red means “not such a great choice” while green means “good to eat”. You can compare foods found in the grocery store, from the frozen prepared aisle to the produce section. You can also compare recipes and find out which item is the best on menu. The site even lets you set up a personalized menu for certain health conditions and special diets. And it’s free to sign up and track your progress.
Even with insurance, health-care costs can really ding your wallet. Compound that with confusing bills from your doctor’s office or insurance company, and it can be tough to know just what you’re spending money on – and if those fees are really are appropriate.In fact, the American Medical Association reports mistakes on health insurance claims add up to about $17 billion each year.
A company called Simplee aims to tackle any fees that are hidden in the depths of your health-care bill, exposing any errors. The site lets you store, monitor and pay health-care expenses, keeping track of any hidden fees or mistakes. It’s free, too. Sign up here.
