A new Australian app will help us eat more veggies by challenging its users to add extra vegetables to their daily diets. The app is called VegEze and you can join a 21 day “Do 3 at Dinner” challenge. Users eat 3 different veggies at dinner every night for 21 days. The app helps you track intake. It is free for iOS.




Ginny and I fell in love with Flat Whites – a new coffee experience for us – when we were in New Zealand. If you haven’t tried a Flat White at Starbucks because you weren’t sure what it was, a Flat White has an even mix of liquid milk and smooth foam on top of the espresso. Like a latte, you can have a single or double shot of espresso, but while a latte is milky coffee, a flat white tastes like you are drinking a yummy espresso drink. A Flat White is a more intense coffee experience. The Starbucks Flat White has 220 calories.
