Nowadays you can find apps for anything, to know where you parked your car, or where you pooped (I’m serious), and yes, you can even find apps for vegans! How cool, right?
Well, these apps have made my life so much easier, so I thought I could share them with you, and maybe make someone else’s life easier too.
Vegan Amino is like a social media all about veganism. Most of the users are vegan or transitioning to veganism, and you get a lot of information through it.
You can share posts, leave comments, chat with other people, follow them and even enter contests. It’s like a big community of vegans.
Sadly, I think this app properly works only if you are in Italy, but it’s great. It suggest you places close to you that offer vegan options, and you can choose among restaurants, hotels, shops, cafès, bakeries, and even pharmacies!
It’s going to be your best friend whenever you visit a new town and don’t know what’s around.
PS: HappyCow is a similar app that works everywhere in the world, but it’s not free.
3.Is It Vegan?
How many times have you read an ingredient list and thought “how the heck am I supposed to tell whether this weird unpronounceable ingredient is vegan or not?”
Oh well don’t despair, Is It Vegan? is always there when you need it. You can search products or even single ingredients and see if they are vegan or not.
This app is similar to Is It Vegan?, but it focuses on beauty and body products. You can scan a product or search a company, and see which ones are cruelty free, which test on animals and so on.
I consider this app very helpful, because it not only addresses the products, but also entire companies, and you can fix the settings based on your preferences.
Daily Dozen isn’t necessarily a must-have, but it helps you keep track of the foods that you should aim to have every day to reach your “Daily Dozen”. This is based on the book How Not To Die (which I really recommends) by Micheal Greger, the founder of NutritionFacts.org. It basically suggests to eat certain plant-based foods in a certain amount every day in order to live a long healthy life.
