The days of scouring New York hoping to find healthy food options are no more thanks to a new iPhone app.

GreenHopping is designed to help health conscious eaters maintain an organic and healthy diet in the city. The app tracks organic and non-organic “green-juice” bars and stores throughout the New York’s five boroughs.

Users are shown an in-depth listing and locator of stores, juice bars and restaurants with options for smoothies, vegan, raw and gluten-free food. The app also seeks to inspire non-healthy eaters and make healthy food trendy.

“After my health crisis in 2012, I was left with no option but to reevaluate my diet,” says Catherine Cuello, GreenHopping’s founder and CEO. “Raw vegetables and fruits saved my life, and I hope to inspire others by raising awareness of the important role nutrition plays in our lives and health.”

Giving healthy eating tips and teaching users new ways of finding organic food are also features of the app.

“This is why the application also includes a “tip of the day” section, where users can read about interesting cooking and diet tips, as well as vegetable and fruit facts,” Cuello says. “I learned incredible facts about food, and its healing properties that never cease to amaze me. I want to make healthy ‘mainstream.’”

The app already charts locations throughout New York City, and has plans to expand to Miami, Chicago, Los Angeles and Dallas by the end of the year.

Greenhopping is available for 99 cents at the Apple Store.
