Cook your meal with technology

Changing the way we eat can start right from your phone. With the Galaxy S9 allowing you to see the nutritional aspects of food, the serious health issues we are facing globally must be serious. But, the technology is all for the best. In fact, Ali Partovi, an investor in food companies has said that,
