Prevention.com, the online health magazine destination from Emmaus, Pa.-based Rodale’s Prevention magazine, has launched its “Grocery Server” tool to help consumers locate deals on healthy food at local grocery stores.
The free tool is available in the site’s Healthy Recipe Finder section, and to use it Prevention.com visitors key in their zip code to find results on thousands of money-saving deals at the majority of the local grocery stores in their area.
“In today’s busy world, we often miss out on deals that are right at our finger tips. Grocery Server is another service-oriented digital product addition to Prevention.com, offering readers a tool which enables them to be healthy, with affordability and speed in mind,” said Deborah Wilburn, prevention executive editor – digital.
Users can narrow their search by store, product, and product category, and can also use the tool to seek out what local stores carry ingredients that have been suggested in a recipe they found through the Prevention.com’s Healthy Recipe Finder section, which includes thousands of recipes from Prevention and other Rodale publications and books. Users can search by cuisine, health concern, dietary need, along with six other categories. Each recipe includes detailed nutritional information and allows visitors to save, rate and share recipes, and make a shopping on Prevention.com.
“Grocery Server” also allows users to add their selected items from a variety of local stores, not just one in particular, to a shopping list and print it. The tool was also designed to make it easy for consumers to find recipes matching items that are on sale at their local stores. For instance, if chicken breasts are on sale at their local grocer, they can click on “See Recipes” on Prevention.com and get recipes that use this ingredient. Users can then share any deals they find via Facebook, Twitter, or Google Buzz, which will bring their “friends” directly to the sale page on Prevention.com.
The tool is powered by Grocery Server, a joint venture of Qponix and MyGroceryDeals.com focused on providing consumers with all of the information and tools they need to plan and save in their local grocery stores.
