Healthy Recipes Coming to Wholesome

What’s been happening with Wholesome? This summer we released user-added foods and we’ve now had over 8,000 user contributed foods added to the Wholesome app! 

What’s next? You asked for it: Recipes! We’re putting the finishing touches on what’s been a few months of intensive designing and coding. We're also going live with a brand new website.
