Healthy Holidays with The Whole Pantry

I don’t know about you, but I’ve already had too much chocolate, scoffed down too many cookies and over-indulged in eggnog at one too many Christmas parties. I’ve had enough and I’m ready to skip the holidays and jump right in to my New Year’s detox. I’m craving fresh fruits and vegetables, looking for recipes that renew and revitalize. To get through the rest of the holiday season, I’ve downloaded The Whole Pantry, a gorgeous collection of vegetarian recipes aimed at restoring balance and promoting health. The app aims to be the whole package, empowering users with lifestyle guides and a “food is thy medicine” philosophy to health. Need another reason to check out this app right now? They’ve just added their first Lifestyle Pack to get you through the holiday season with 15 festive gluten and sugar-free recipes.

If you’re into vegetarian, vegan, gluten free or Paleo– or you just want to balance all that holiday indulgence with some nourishing meals, keep reading to find out more about The Whole Pantry.

“Healthy desserts” seems like an oxymoron, right? What if desserts could be healthy and rich, gooey, sweet, comforting, chocolaty, creamy and decadent? The folks from Green Kitchen are back with another recipe app that proves you can have your cake and eat it too — Healthy Desserts. The 58 recipes rely heavily on fresh fruits, natural sweeteners, healthy fats and whole grains. Many of the desserts are vegan and/or gluten free.

Think it sounds too good to be true? These guys have street cred, recognized by Saveur magazine this year as a “Best Food Blog” in the special diets category and having just released their first cookbook this past April, Vegetarian Everyday. If you’re looking for dessert recipes worthy of entertaining or something special for the weekend breakfast table, Healthy Desserts offers a wide array of cakes, cookies, muffins, bars, buns, smoothies and frozen treats.

Vegetarian Recipes from Green Kitchen

If you think healthy food is bland and boring, the Green Kitchen app is here to change your perception. This collection of vegetarian recipes from the Scandinavian kitchen of David and Luise (and adorable young daughter Elsa) focuses on vibrant fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and unrefined sugars. Not only are the recipes delicious, but also the photos are stunning and the app functions beautifully with a sleek and modern design. Bon Appétit magazine agrees, saying Green Kitchen is “proving that even wholesome recipes can make for tantalizing food porn.”

Inspired by their popular food blog, Green Kitchen Stories, the creators offer a collection of 78 fresh and healthy recipes, each including mouthwatering photos. Each one is labeled Raw, Gluten Free, Vegan, Whole Grain or Sugar Free. No matter what your lifestyle is, you’ll be inspired to get in the kitchen and cook with nature’s bounty (even carnivores like me). Read on to see more of this vegetarian cooking app. (more…)
