Getting Organized

This time it's for real people! I just started my BD (Blockbuster Diet) and thanks to Springpad, I can now store all my low-fat recipes inside my recipe box online! Smiley

Now that I'm
trying to eat healthy, I have been searching for simple low-fat recipes that I can cook at home in my mission to lose weight and look stunning for the New Year! Previously, it was always a hassle to bookmark a recipe page I see online or to print them out for safe-keeping so I never really bothered storing recipes. But all that has changed with the discovery of Springpad to keep things organized!

Springpad works as a personal organizer for all your things. Their mission is to "Organize your life, one project at a time", which I think is a great tagline by the way. I've just registered as a member and I'm still learning my way around the application but worry not for it's very user-friendly. Unlike some other hard-to-get programs, Springpad makes it easy for you to collect, personalize, use and share content from publishers, brands and your friends. Everything you need to help your life organized can be placed under one roof.

It took me less than five minutes to figure out how
Springpad works with several cool Applications to get me started including a Trip Planner, Recipe Box, Holiday Gift Planner, Calendar and Restaurant Tracker. You can also create your own App by using the Notebook App. Just drag and drop your stuff into configurations to create one that takes your fancy! Smiley

Anyway, my favourite App is definitely the
Recipe Box! This App allows me to save any recipe I love inside my Recipe Box. You can search for recipes from Springpad or add them from other online sites. You can even type in your own recipe if you like but I'm too lazy to do that. I took the easy way out and simply added a few really delicious low-fat recipes to my list and I can't wait to try them out! Don't they look appetizing?

Fresh Pineapple Salsa

Brown Rice with Shrimp

So thank you Springpad for coming up with this awesome organizer. I love that I now have a really cool place to store all my junk and keep them organized in such a simple way too! If you like to organize your life into something easier, why not give Springpad a shot? Look me up too and add me as a friend if you like. Perhaps we can swap recipes later! ihikhik
