If you’re Calorie Conscious or by any chance nerd? Then this one is for you 🙂 So how about getting the Nutritional value of a food item from Powershell 😀

HOW IT WORKS :

To make it work we are simply making calls to a REST API of “United States Department of Agriculture” to search your food item and some data wrangling to get the nutrition report.

NOTE : You’ve to just register for a API subscription key from here under ‘gaining access’ section of the page. Once you’re subscribed, place the key in the script (Line-15) and you’ll be able to get-nutrients like in the following animation

SCRIPT : 

Have fun exploring this script and find some time to show-off to your friends 😉
