The call for a more eco-friendly diet has materialized in the form of Food Monster, which is quite possibly the most complete resource for every plant-based meal. If you’re are finding it hard to transition to a plant-based diet, or curious about how people can enjoy eating just vegetables and fruits every day, here’s an app that can help you get started as well as show you the many benefits you can enjoy when consuming meatless meals.
Food Monster is an app exclusive for the iPhone that features scrumptious photos of food, detailed ingredient lists, and step-by-step instructions for a huge number of vegan and vegetarian dishes. It allows users to search for recipes just by typing the ingredients they have at their disposal, as well as seeing if a recipe is inline with a particular diet. There are “themed collection pages” on the app, which includes veggie burgers, dairy-free cheeses, and raw vegan desserts. The collection of recipes is extensive with over 5,000 pre-installed recipes, and the list is getting bigger everyday as new ones are being added daily.
“The real war against climate change is being fought on our plates, multiple times a day with every food choice we make, said Nil Zacharias, Co-Founder and Editor-in-Chief of One Green Planet, who made the app. “By choosing to eat more plant-based foods, we can drastically cut our carbon footprint, save precious water supplies, help ensure that vital crop resources are fed to people, rather than livestock and give thousands of species a fighting chance for survival. We have the potential to make an enormous positive impact by just changing the way we eat.”
Smartphones and apps have played a huge part in purveying vegan and vegetarian lifestyles. It’s hardly surprising, really, as almost everyone has a smart gadget today according to a detailed report by Statista, making apps an easy way to reach out to the world. Multi-award winning technology company Gaming Realms, who developed the innovative and very successful slot website Spin Genie, which popularized food-themed games such as the juicy Fruit Shop game, asserts that a smart platform consists of a software that is publishable on any platform, analyzing consumer needs to drive a winning industry, and a personalized engine that creates efficient promotion and satisfaction–all of which are being done by app makers such as One Green Planet in order to be successful in their advocacy of a healthier lifestyle.
The app is available for free but for a monthly subscription of $1.99, users can unlock all recipes and features in the app.
