Managing your Vitamin K intake when prescribed Coumadin or Warfarin can be a difficult task.

When I started taking Coumadin I had to adjust my diet to avoid the INR “beginners” swings. I was told to avoid or limit green leafy vegetables so I no longer eat salad as lunch 6 days a week. When I do have a salad I have replaced spinach and spring mix with Iceberg lettuce. I no longer start the day with green tea, so have switched back to coffee. My cranberry and ruby red grapefruit juice have been replaced with orange and tomato juice. –Just a few things I have learned along the way and wish to pass on to you.

I hope this app will help guide you in planning and preparing meals with Vitamin K in mind. The main goal is to eat the same amount of Vitamin K foods daily. Knowing the amount in the foods you eat is the first step to INR happiness and why I created this app.

- Easy to use app provides quick look up of Vitamin K levels found in common foods for individuals using Warfarin or Coumadin.

- Handy guide for grocery shopping and meal planning
