Mother's Day Giveaway - The Orange Chef Co. Prep Pad

Countertop and Scale

Giveaway! We are very excited to team-up with The Orange Chef Co. (a neighbor to our Bay Area folks) to offer Prep Pad, the smart food scale that visualizes nutrition, to one of our lucky customers just in time for Mother’s Day.

Let's face it, Moms are like superheroes, but with all of her day-to-day responsibilities, she doesn’t always have time to measure food and calculate proteins and carbohydrates. This is where Prep Pad comes in.

This American-made 9-inch-by-6.25-inch scale is sold on The Orange Chef Co. website and at Williams-Sonoma, and works with the Countertop app on your iPad, to display a breakdown of proteins, carbohydrates and fats as you build a meal (an iPad 3 or newer is needed).

Weighing Food on Prep Pad

Most of us have a good idea of what foods are healthy and what foods aren’t, but building a well-balanced meal of correct proportions can intimidate even a seasoned health food enthusiast. Prep Pad’s guidance is conveniently built into its display. To begin, create a profile based on your individual characteristics and goals on Countertop. Once you've done this, you're ready to begin adding ingredients to Prep Pad. You can do this by scanning a bar code, using the voice command feature, or searching the database of 300,000+ food items. From there, two rings will appear on screen. The outer one is the original recommended breakdown of carbs, fats, proteins, and calories per day. The inner ring tells you if you have the right balance.

In addition to a visual pie chart display of protein, carbs and fats, Countertop also displays a balance score (out of 100), plus the total calories per meal count. The balance score will give you a real-time indication of how close you are to hitting your original goals; a simple visual nudge in the right nutritional direction.

Coupled with fresh ingredients from your Farm Fresh To You deliveries, Prep Pad will help restore balance to your kitchen.
