  • One of the best designed apps I’ve ever used Mar 8, 2020

    By BlackBritchs
    This app is a delight to use - kudos to the developer! The format is super easy to use and intuitive, the pictures are gorgeous, the shopping list is genius in the way it organizes items by category and I like the easy way you can add all ingredients or just the ones you don’t have with a simple tap of the finger. Another nice touch is being able to quickly see the ingredients in the section you’re working on so you don’t have to keep flipping back and forth. Just a wonderful design all around. Oh - and the recipes are delicious too 😋 The only issue I’m having is with syncing my phone and iPad. I like to have everything on my phone for when I’m shopping but prefer to use my IPad when cooking because it’s larger. But I can’t get my favorites and my shopping list to sync on both devices even though I have iCloud enabled on both. Not sure how to go about fixing that; it’s a little annoying but I’m gonna give you 5 ⭐️ anyways.

  • Best $5 I’ve ever spent! Jun 30, 2019

    By goldensilk
    First off, I’m not vegan or vegetarian but I am pre diabetic. I wanted to find interesting and tasty plant based sides to accompany my proteins. The recipes are delicious and easy to prepare. Some of the ingredients are off the beaten path but will add much zest to your palette. Another reviewer said it’s taught them how to cook. I feel my palette has evolved. There are some flavor combinations I would never have thought of putting together. The app does cost but there are no other hidden in app purchases or memberships they push on you. The interface is clean and easy to use. Never crashed on me, seems like the developers are very involved. Recipes are added regularly bc there’s a great team of contributing professional chefs, even some from the medical community. Get this app to add to your kitchen arsenal, you won’t regret it!

  • Good fresh look, still missing key features Sep 17, 2020

    By JeffB.
    The new look is great. A fresh coat of paint. And the recipes are the great WFPB recipes that we have come to expect from FOK. But the app needs a lot more work too bring it up to the standards of iOS/iPadOS in 2020. For starters, there should be a dedicated iPadOS app that could take advantage of the much larger screens of the iPad and thus show more data from the recipes all at once. One could envision seeing ingredients and recipe steps on the same screen rather than having to expand smaller sections or go back and forth between tabs on the smaller iPhone screens. Also, the shopping list could be improved. And how about a recipe doubling/ tripling calculator feature that would automatically multiply the ingredient amounts when the number of servings was increased. And some of the recipes could use editing to better organize the steps and list of ingredients in the proper order. Overall still a great app, but there are many features in modern iOS/iPadOS devices /API that could be utilized to improve the app. Thanks.

    Update stinks now it only added items from recipes in the app to the aisles. When I add my own items it just goes under my items can not choose an aisle for those items. I miss the old version. Uninstalled now using whisk app let's me save recipes and create a shopping list and has a meal planner.

    App has bugs. The most recent recipe is missing the name of an ingredient. 2 cups of ??? Check the Peanut-Banana Brownie recipe. What is the ingredient at the end? I can't put it in the shopping list to see it either. This is disappointing to pay $5.

    For months now, every time I open the App, it crashes on me. Oh, it asks whether I want to send feedback - every single time it crashes - and... crickets. No fix, and apparently, no plans to fix. Bitterly disappointed, especially as I have praised FOK for years, & purchased the video to give away again & again. Thought they were trustworthy...

    Needs to be gluten free. In the settings, you can request that recipes containing gluten not be shown. The first 2 recipes I opened contained wheat flour and wheat pitas. So I cannot trust the app to direct me to appropriate recipes. I wish I could eat items containing gluten, believe me, life would be easier, but I cannot. I cannot use this app as it does not save me any time if I have to double check every single ingredient to make sure it is safe.

    As an Australian, I found this app very annoying. Have not used any recipe and uninstalled it. Waste of money! I wish I had read some reviews before purchasing. Looking at some recipes, I was surprised to see large amounts of sugar or jam. I expected this app to be plant based and also be healthy. Why can't measurements and temperatures be listed in grams, cups and Celsius as well as ounces, pounds and Fahrenheit? If this is available to international users, then it should reflect this.

  • Absolutely worth the money! Jan 9, 2020

    By Mainerfromaway
    My husband and I are exploring a whole food plant based lifestyle and this app makes it so easy to try new stuff! Neither one of us knows how to cook like this so these recipes are great to learn with. We have tried a few and they have all turned out delicious. I like the layout and the fact that recipes within recipes (like the sloppy joe recipe that calls for Basic BBQ Sauce) have links to them as well. The shopping list feature is nice too, I like that I can print it out or use it on my phone or ipad. I find myself browsing the recipes and reading the methods just to see how they do make stuff plant based (like gravy and sauces). This app is well thought out, very easy to use and well worth $4.99!

    Nice selection for the money. Additional recipes are added, some from outside sources ( with permission) . One caveat is that the seasonings aren't always spot-on and if you don't have experience with winging it, or knowing what type and how much more or less spice to use or add, you may be underwhelmed with some recipes. This is a good place to start though and FB has a FoK group you could inquire with. For less than the cost of a monthly magazine I say its a good deal.

    I love the recipes but the majority of the recipes require hard-to-find ingredients. Would be nice if FOK had a "pantry" offering where subscribers could shop for some of these ingredients and have them shipped.

    Only reason I gave 4 stars was because I really think that this app needs an ingredients search. I hope the developers consider this idea as other apps already have this feature and it is so much easier to find the right recipe based on what you already have rather than having to go out and shop for ingredients every time you make something and ending up with more food in your fridge than you need.

  • 3 stars for easiness of recipes & 5 for ease of use Oct 9, 2018

    By EDStoA
    I can’t really comment on the tastiness of the recipes as I have only made chocolate frosting (super delicious btw). I tried plant based for 4 years & had amazing results so I’m happy for this app even though I’m no longer plant based because I still prefer it most of the time. BUT I feel as if most of these recipes are too fancy. I like quick & simple things (which I find for free online). These recipes seem like they’re for professional chefs. It’s intimidating. If you REALLY love cooking then this might be for you. But I am a lazy chef. I love that I can “favorite” recipes & that I can add ingredients to a shopping list within the app (select individual items or select the option to add all ingredients for a given recipe). My favorite feature is the step by step instructions given when you flip your phone on its side while in the “method” section of a recipe. It’s super convenient for people, like myself, who get confused easily from cooking instructions. I just wish it gave more information on storage.

  • Too careless with the recipes Jun 23, 2019

    By ggmpd
    The selection of dishes is interesting but the recipes were not carefully checked. Here’s a specific example that’s typical: the Indian Spiced Cauliflower and Potato Casserole does not indicate whether the cooking is done covered or uncovered. What’s worse is that if you are working from the printed copy it is missing key parts of the recipe as viewed in the app. Try it - look at the ingredients list in the app and compare that with the printout. Cook’s Illustrated used to have a section in its magazine where they reviewed cookbooks and vetted the recipes to make sure they worked, had all the necessary instructions and were precise but not too complex for a newcomer to cooking techniques. They’d probably give this app a fail. On the other hand, the recipes in the Forks Over Knives magazine are better done as are the ones in Darshana Thacker’s book. Buy those and ignore this app.

  • Not worth paying for May 6, 2018

    By Bprattle
    This app is fine. It’s nice to have all of the whole Food recipes in one place. Often when searching online a lot of the recipes that come up are not actually whole food so this is nice for that reason, however I have seen quite a few of these recipes for free online so paying for the app feels like a foolish purchase. What I really need from this app is for it to tell me how long sauces and dressings and such can keep in the fridge. There are quite a few things, examples being cheese sauce or pasta sauce, that I would love to make a large jar of but I do not have freezer space so I’d like to know how long they would keep in the fridge. You also cannot view the ingredients and recipes at the same time so you have to keep switching back and fourth to see what quantities you need to be adding. This also isn’t a meal planning app as it claims to be, it is just a WFPB recipe database. To recap: the recipes look good but can be found elsewhere online, you cannot plan meals by day or week, I don’t know how long the food I make will keep, poor navigation/organization. If it was free this app would be great but all in all: Not worth the money.

  • It ok Feb 8, 2019

    By emilaus
    Not really worth the purchase. Broken into categories (soups/stews, deserts, salads etc). Not very many recipes in each categorie around 50 in each. Pretty boring and not very enticing. Under categories should be sub categories then “recipes” , not just one recipe. For example, under breakfast there should be a categorie for omelette, not just one omelette recipe, there should be a bunch to choose from. Also there are probably a ton of burrito recipes out there, but there is only one. There are around 65 “contributors” who donated a recipe or two, I would think there would be more. Around 50-60 odd recipes in each category. Breakfasts, salads and sides, soups stews, deserts, baked stuffed, pastas and a couple others. Also time consuming to sift through each dish to determine spice and ingredients, I get bored sifting through and end up closing app. I purchased to get ideas and get inspired that was pushed on a Facebook page. Seems like this app still in early stages and needs improving. My still go to is Food and Wine. Honestly, better off just searching for stuff and not spending money. At this stage it should be still free.

  • Not as Tasteful As I thought It would Be Apr 30, 2020

    By Squire-Jackson
    I am a believer in the information I learned from the documentary and thought this app would provide tasty recipes using wholesome foods. I was attracted to the apps recipes with plant based ingredients and shopping list being in one central location. With my busy schedule, this feature makes it really convenient. I rely very heavily on recipes to minimize the thinking I have to put into providing a variety of meals for my family (i.e., I would cook the same thing all the time). I also enjoyed reading the success stories of how people turned their health around by following the FOK eating regimen. I’ve dried about 5 or so recipes and have yet to taste one that I plan to cook again. I’m wondering if these recipes were tested before they were published.

  • Not Great for Single Guy Jun 4, 2017

    By phillyb091
    I am a single guy in search for vegan recipes but am not experienced in cooking. I had great success with a home delivery meal service, but I wanted to try FOK for the sake of more healthful vegan meals. I'm really disappointed with the three FOK recipes I cooked. They took much more time to prep than what the recipe cards suggested, greatly misjudged certain portions of ingredients (for example, way too much eggplant for one recipe and way too little quinoa for another), and they simply didn't taste good. As well, they were geared toward large groups of people and not suitable for bachelors or couples. That amounts to a huge waste of food when the meals turn out to be gross. I've since subscribed to a vegan home delivery food service, and the results have been great.

  • Shopping list layout is enough to drive you away Jan 12, 2020

    By PleaseNotBeTaken87
    This app appears to offer lot of great recipes for incredible looking plant based dishes. It even allows you to put ingredients directly into a shopping list. We were so excited, we picked out our meals for the week and headed to the store. Then we attempted to fulfill the shopping list. Who knew you could list so many onions under so many headings? Imagine if the shopping list told you how much of an item you would need to make the meals you chose? Headed back home to make a shopping list the old fashioned way.
