Print may not entirely be dead (and we hope it stays around forever) but riffling through a cookbook is a bit more taxing than scrolling through an app with not 50, not 100, but thousands of recipes at your disposal. That’s what tech has done for the food industry, so here are our favourite apps and websites in celebration of this advancement.
Best-selling health author Jessica Sepel’s app, 'JSHealth', is all you’ll ever need…and more. All the 350+ recipes on this app are gluten, wheat, and refined sugar free and offer dairy-free and vegan alternatives. Some of the foods you can learn to make include a delicious roasted vegetable fritta, a healthy blueberry and hemp seed smoothie, and the classic French toast with maple strawberries. Organised in neat chunks of “quick breakfasts”, “wholesome mains” and other categories, the app is easy to navigate and beautifully designed. What makes it even better is that there are added features apart from just recipes. These include the option to create a meal plan, and the world’s first online nutrition ‘Clinic’ which offers advice on everything from sleep and stress to immune support, drawing from Sepel’s nutrition and health expertise. Prices start at $14.99 per month. Best feature: the ‘body love’ feature which gives you support and guidance to help you love your body.Source: App Advice
Despite what the memes on twitter will tell you, some of us are appreciative of Jamie Oliver’s quest to rid the world of unhealthy foods. His app, 'Jamie’s Recipes' is just one of the many ways he seeks to do this, and is perhaps the easiest way to participate. The free app is home to a variety of healthy recipes from spatchock chicken satay & zingy mango salad to rice pudding with berries and hazelnut praline. Best feature: You get 15 new recipes every single Monday. Spatula’s at the ready!Source: Phone Arena
Internet giant Buzzfeed’s 'Tasty' took off all over the web with short, catchy videos on how to make sought after recipes. Their app is in keeping with the fun spirit of the brand and features quirky illustrations and animations. You can make anything from organic quinoa rice cakes to healthy frozen yogurt, and it also allows you to save the video recipes you love, making sure that you’ll be back later to try your hand at making them. Best feature: it lets you add recipes to your shopping list and automatically creates a tickable list of all the ingredients you’ll need to make the dish.Source: Deteched
