Stuck on the bus? Bored at work? We’ve all been there – the only difference is that we’re being productive with our time – and now you can reap the benefits. Screw YouTube-ing videos of cats. Here’s a hit list of the coolest new apps that will give you something worthwhile to do with your spare seconds.
Raw Food for Real People (with video) | $10.99 | BlackBerrry
Chef Rod Rotondi is keeping it real raw with his new app designed to teach you all about how to be as raw as he is. No stovetops or saucepans needed for these uncooked creations. The raw food diet has been gaining traction as a dietary preference, and it’s not just for the heat-averse or those that never want to suffer through one of their wife’s horrible tuna casseroles ever again. Chef Rotondi promises that going raw can be fun, easy, and delicious, while energizing more than your spirit. I suppose it can’t kill you to watch a few of his videos and find out for yourself.
