I bought the app expecting more than recipes, success stories, and opportunities to sell more of their products. I agree that it’s good to go to a recipe, and then add needed ingredients to your shopping list, but you can only do that with recipes on their app. Another element lacking is the ability to plan your meals utilizing the app, and then add needed ingredients to the shopping list. Instead, they want to sell you their meal planning app which does not necessarily coincide with individual priorities.
The book, The Forks Over Knives Plan: A 4-Week Meal-By-Meal Makeover, asks you to prioritize what you want to get out of a whole food-plant based diet. My priorities are health, ease, pleasure, and acceptance. The Forks Over Knives Meal Planning app does not appear to do that, because they provide the dishes for that week, and it does not appear to take into consideration locally grown produce, and time constraints.
The Forks Over Knives app would benefit from putting blank meal planning forms online so that individuals could fill in their meal plans. It would also be useful to have the ability to incorporate recipes from some of the many other books in their series. Maybe they don’t want to miss the opportunity to sell you more of their books with these recipes. You should be able to have access to all of their “branded” recipes on the app. It’s too bad that the app is more into selling you cooking classes, meal planning apps, and events, rather than assisting in helping to create a healthier individual. Profits seem to be of greater importance.
