Eat Healthy for Less was a 2013 hackathon prototype of a meal planning app designed to help you save money on groceries while achieving your nutrition goals.
Spending too much money on groceries?
Worried about you and your kids eating right?
Having trouble following your doctor's diet advice?
Eat Healthy for Less will ask you a few questions about your goals and then zip you straight to a week's worth of dinner recipes and a shopping list with the groceries you need to make them. Ready to shop in 60 seconds!
The Eat Healthy for Less project was just a crazy idea on the morning of Saturday June 1, but a pickup team of developers at the Google Hack for Change 2013 hackathon turned it into a winning app in just 48 hours!
Meet the team:
Trey Smith. Systems Scientist, Carnegie Mellon University Silicon Valley / NASA Ames. Project lead and Django-naut. "Eat Healthy for Less really just turns what my Mom taught me about grocery shopping into an app to help others learn the same techniques."
Jason Mow. Student at University of Pennsylvania. Front end, integration, and demo lead.
Sid Askary. Coder, data wrangler, and outreach.
Ganesh Sarwate. Coder and data wrangler. Ganesh wasn't satisfied with winning the hackathon and went straight into coding up a native Android app on Sunday night!
Kenneth Ng. Coder and mobile web guy.
Joseph Victor. Stanford University. Coder and algorithms guy.
Samer Buna. Coder and data wrangler.
Nandita Garud. Genetics PhD student at Stanford University. Statistician and design thinker.
Chuang Wang. Coder.
We'd like to thank the Google Hack for Change organizers for putting on a great event!
