I admit, when I first started eating plant-based foods, there weren’t many resources around to help decipher between what was actually healthful and what was vegan. Just because it’s vegan definitely does not make it healthful (think french-fries). It’s especially difficult putting together your shopping list, because just when you think you’ve selected something moderately healthy for your kids (like Goldfish crackers over potato chips) you read the ingredient label and then realize that they are just as damaging! Ouch! Here are a 8 smartphone aps to help you in the right direction:
