I want to introduce you to Carrie, the blogger over at Carrie on Vegan. Chances are, you already know her. Carrie is a very active Nutritarian blogger in between completing her masters’ degree in public health nutrition and the coursework to become a registered dietitian. She is a recent thyroid cancer survivor and is passionate about inspiring people to take control of their health, starting in the kitchen.
Carrie has written a recipe app for the iphone and other Apple devices called "Vegan Delish." HOW COOL IS THAT? And she's giving FIVE lucky HGK readers the Vegan Delish App for free! Yes, FIVE. Thanks Carrie!
For new and veteran vegans and vegetarians, plus those wanting to explore the benefits of a plant-based diet, Vegan Delish is a recipe app available for Apple handheld devices featuring innovative tools such as a digital shopping list and searchable categories including gluten-free, quick & easy, and kid-friendly. Listed as one of the top 15 Food & Drink paid iPhone apps for November, 2012, Vegan Delish inspires users to make whole food, plant-based meals that are as delicious as they are nutritious.
For the introductory price of only $1.99, users of Vegan Delish receive 50 recipes including California Kale Salad, Easiest Slow-Cooker Applesauce, Pumpkin Spice Muffins and Butternut Harvest Stew. Plus, once the app is purchased, access is included to all of the new recipes that are added monthly. Carrie let me know that she's adding about five new recipes per month.
Each recipe features step-by-step instructions to transform simple ingredients into flavorful, health-promoting meals that everyone will enjoy. Best of all, all of the dishes are 100% vegan and gluten-free and made with no oils, salt or added sugars.
For kids or picky eaters, the Sneaky Greens Chocolate Smoothie includes a whole serving of spinach; it looks and tastes like a chocolate milkshake with no added sugar!
All Vegan Delish recipes are carefully selected and tested for taste, nutrition and simple instructions including mouth-watering photos.
