Since year 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic has brought great challenges to people's health and daily life. In order to stay healthy during this difficult time while still keeping the normal work and life going, we must keep our bodies as strong as possible, especially our immune systems. Daily healthy diets and exercises are critical to our body health and strength. They can make our bodies more resistant to the invasion of virus and sickness caused by intrinsic or extrinsic factors.
In spring 2021, in order to stay healthy, we (myself and several close friends) started learning food nutrition science and practicing healthy diets based on what we learned. Our goal was to select the foods which contain high amount of Good nutrients we would like to have more (such as Vitamin C, Vitamin D, and Zinc to boost our immune systems), in the meantime keep the intake of Bad nutrients (such as fat, especially saturated fat) low, and keep the weight controlled.
In order to accomplishing this goal, I wrote some software code to fetch food nutrition data from USDA FoodData Central via its public APIs. We, a group of food nutrition enthusiast friends, shared our knowledge learned from books, research papers, articles, and videos, and our experiences and results from the practice of healthy diets. We used the little tool I wrote to look for "Good Foods". Gradually, with numerous iterations of uses, suggestions, and enhancements, the LogixPath Chef software was formed.
LogixPath Chef stands for: Use Logical Pathway to guide a Chef to select and make nutritious and tasty foods.
Since the initial launch of LogixPath Chef web application in fall 2021 and mobile App in spring 2022, the software has helped thousands of people to learn the basic knowledge of food nutrition, lookup food nutrition facts, find the foods containing the nutrients they need, reduce or avoid foods containing the nutrients which impact their health negatively, and design and create nutritious food recipes.
We continuously study food nutrition science and develop new features. Hope our software can help as many people as possible to have healthy and happy daily life!
