Default Healthy meal Apps

With so darn may apps out there is there one for putting info in on what you like to eat and what you don't so that you can make a diet to follow that you can actually follow with foods you WILL EAT? I know there are apps for putting what you have for the table in and they will help locate a recipie for that meal but not to sure it had anything to do with healthy.

I do not use aps: I was born without the technology gene! Though, as a diabetic I did have to learn to cope with diet.

What I do is to start with a low fat protein- such as chicken, fish, ham, pork chops, sirloin, round steak, LEAN hamburger, or shell fish and then add a non-starchy vegetable.

THEN I add a serving of something starchy, such as a biscuit or a cup of pasta or a cup of rice or a potato

For example, last night I had sirloin and enough potato casserole to give me about one potato. I did not measure the steak. I don't think most people over eat on lean meat: it is the noodles and mashed potatos and other carbs that most people eat too much of. And, that can be a problem because carbs make you hungry.

I could have ALSO have added salad or non-starchy vegetables like string beans, but I did not wish to.
