Not enough time to plan long, extensive grocery trips or go over pages of coupons (often ending up with just one or two you actually use), but still want to save money?
Favado 2.0 is a new grocery shopping app that helps shoppers save money; it’s an enhanced version of the original app from www.savings.com. This redesign was created to cater to the less extreme saver with an easy-to-use, visual format that features streamlined, interactive sale and coupon data.Consumers can cut their grocery bill in half just by browsing the app for a few minutes before each shopping trip. Here’s a few reasons why:
In order to make it easy for the everyday saver, the more advanced settings for avid couponers are now hidden on the main screen. Super savers will still have access to the features that they love, but the app will default to settings for those that are just starting their savings journeys.
Crowdsourced Top Trending Sales
Favado 2.0 now includes trending sales, crowdsourced by shoppers to quickly showcase the best and oftentimes unadvertised promotions. This feature of the app is front-and-center to highlight the deepest discounts currently available, giving casual users the power to save like the pros without ever having to clip a coupon.
Browse Instant Coupons
With Favado. 2.0, users can start taking part in the new way to save with load-to-card coupons. With the click of a button, users can beam coupons onto their loyalty store reward cards with no clipping or printing required.
Americans eat at least 25 pounds of candy a year! (Starburst has recently introduced fruit-flavored candy corn, now available.)
Americans love fruits and vegetables that are loaded with nutrients; Eggland’s Best has met this trend, with eggs that four (!) times higher in Vitamin D than regular eggs. These super eggs are also twice as rich in omega-3 fatty acids (due to better feeding of the hens; grains, alfalfa, sea kelp, rice bran, flaxseeds and canola oil).
Only 14 percent of Americans eat three meals a day; one in five just grab whatever’s handy when they’re hungry, according to the annual How America Eats report by IRI (market research firm).
Weight Watchers Smart Ones has become one of the first major brands to market single-serve entrees such as frozen soup and oatmeal.
When time is tight, a frozen entree is often the best option; “however, when you can’t make it yourself, always try for a good choice,” says registered dietitian Nicolette M. Pace, certified diabetes educator and founder of NutriSource Inc. (www.nutrisource.org). Here’s three top picks from Spry Kitchen:
Healthy Choice 100% Natural Tortellini Primavera Parmesan-The tortellini retains that “al dente” bite and features a rich, cheesy flavor. The sauce cooks in a separate tray. Only 260 calories!
Lean Cuisine Pineapple Black Pepper Beef features beef chunks and pineapple in a sweet-spicy sauce over a brown wild rice mix. And there’s a side of beans and carrots. 320 calories.
Amy’s Light and Lean Meatless Swedish Meatballs-This replaces traditional beef meatballs with a blend of quinoa, lentils, tofu and flax seed, but keeps the classic mushroom-based flavor. Only 260 calories.
Did you know that 200 extra calories are consumed when you eat out as opposed to eating at home?
