10 Essential Vegan Apps

Committing to a vegan lifestyle has never been easier thanks to technology. We are in the middle of a vegan boom and every month new and exciting vegan apps are being launched which makes following a vegan diet and lifestyle effortless!

I have complied a list of the 10 apps I have found to be the most essential, allowing quick access to thousands of great recipes, information on supermarkets, restaurants, vegan news, travel guidance and cruelty free products. Hopefully you find them as helpful as I have!

Food Monster

Subscription (Free Trial) | 8000+ Vegan Recipes 


One Green Planet’s Food Monster app gives instant access to over 8000+ vegan, meatless and dairy-free recipes via 600+ category filters! Slight downside is this is a subscription service app, however 3000+ new recipes are added each year, which is kinda a big deal. We’re talking burgers, cake, tacos, cheesecakes, desserts, as well as seasonal dishes. Featuring incredible multi-image, 3D-touch enabled HD photos, vegan food never looked this good!

£2.99 | Translate vegan statements and questions into over 50 languages 

If you are traveling to a country where you don’t speak the language, this app can be helpful when eating out. Don’t forget that HappyCow works all over the world, but if you’re in a pickle, this app translates some basic sentences that will help you order a vegan dish. You can either try to read out the translation, or just show it to your server. I also appreciate that they translate “thank you”. Very important in my book!
