Good idea but not what I need
I uploaded this thinking it would be perfect having uninstalled my fitness pal once I realised it doesn’t track any important nutrients like vitamin D, B2, B12 or selenium. I know these are often labelled on vegan foods so when I saw this I though it would be exactly what I wanted. Sadly it seems to be simply a list of tick boxes that you self assess by writing down the foods you ate. No numbers, no calculations. Rubbish as far as I am concerned. Anyone new to a plant based diet will be none the wiser about what they are eating and experienced people like me already know many of the tips it gives. I can’t really see any point in it as a tool for vegans, sorry!
New vegan here - nice idea but...
Decent app. Has good information about daily intake of various vitamins and needs for vegan diet.
Could improve by automatically calculating average food nutrition instead of just logging it in a diary. My fitness pal does this, so this could be a vegan nutrition version of that. I’m currently using both for vegan advice and gym weight gaining.
It’s so good there is an app for vegans, but I think there is a lot to work on, MyFitnessPal does this but more, I’ll keep checking for updates because this is what we all need! 😃
