Food Apps for Food Freaks (Part 1)

November 1, 2018

Food Apps for Food Freaks is a 3-part series featuring our favorite food apps for the iPhone 5. They’re a great way to pass the time while we’re waiting for the food we ordered to arrive, for the cake in our oven to finish baking, or when we’re simply taking a break between our fourth and fifth trip back to the buffet. 

1. My Fitness Pal


Being a food freak doesn’t mean you have to let yourself go. Tracking all the calories you consume in a day (so you know when to cut back or when to indulge) is super easy with the help of this app. It keeps us from looking like this guy right here.

My Fitness Pal, aside from being simple to use, also contains an extensive list of Filipino food (such as Jollibee’s Chickenjoy) from many local brands. This ensures that you always have the dietary information you need at your fingertips, even on the cheat days when you eat out with your friends.

Check it out!

2. Jamie Oliver’s Recipes


The main reason we like this app is because of all the awesome food photos Jamie Oliver posts. They’re the definition of eye-candy, though we’re pretty sure he uses the Foodie SnapPak filters (not that I’ve downloaded it myself or anything) from Hipstamic to take his pictures.

Okay fine, I admit it, I bought that filter pack, too.

Here are some other reasons why we love Jamie Oliver’s app.

3. Epicurious


On Pepper.ph, we not only strive to make delicious recipes, but also crazy ones! Epicurious is a great reference. It lets us browse through all the interesting dishes that its users from around the world have come up with. We draw inspiration from seeing how all these different cultures utilize the kitchen to come out with new and unique creations. It fuels our desire to create special dishes of our own.

Here are some of its features.
