New Way to Use Summer Fruit: Make a 10-Minute Pizza

New Way to Use Summer Fruit: Make a 10-Minute Pizza

Fresh fruit is one of our favorite snacks year-round but in summer—when markets are overflowing with peaches, berries and cherries—why not sneak it into every course? Pancakes with berries, sandwiches with fresh strawberry jam and, yes, even fruit on a pizza (other than pineapple). This peach “pizza” is […]

PlateJoy + Jawbone

PlateJoy + Jawbone

Today, PlateJoy is happy to give details of a new partnership with UP by Jawbone, a popular wristband and app that tracks your movement and sleep. The app displays your data, lets you input things like food intake and mood, and then delivers insights accordingly. Together, PlateJoy and UP will connect the world of quantified self-tracking with the tangible world of — you guessed it: delicious, healthy food.

We know that “healthy eating” means different things to different people, but feeling healthy is universally understood. PlateJoy strives to make it as easy as possible to eat how your ideal self would every day. The UP band has been helping its users understand more about what that ideal is for years.

Now, the meals you’ve ordered on PlateJoy can be pushed to your UP feed, and you’ll receive custom breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack & dessert recommendations based on your daily activity. Finish a long run? PlateJoy can recommend the best dinner to restore you. Sleep less than normal? We’ve got just the breakfast you need.

You can sync your JawBone and PlateJoy accounts by visiting the UP app gallery on any mobile device. And if you don’t yet own an UP, visit Jawbone and use the code MFPSHIP to get free 2-day shipping.

As always, if you have any questions, just drop us a line, and we’ll be sure to follow-UP! ;)

Puppies + Pancakes

Puppies + Pancakes

San Francisco is the land of perfect weather, dogs of the “very, very cute” variety, and spiritual (almost religious) feelings around brunch. We wouldn’t want to keep these things to ourselves, so every week we’ll share photos of our favorites baby animals and big kid […]
