Deliciously Ella takes a vegetable-forward approach to cooking and dining.
Born of a desire to unite food and health, this app from Ella Mills’ beloved wellness brand can help you take steps toward maintaining a plant-based diet that’s exciting and varied, whether you’re a longtime vegetarian or a carnivore looking to turning over some new leaves.
At the heart of the app is a database of more than 400 recipes, searchable by category (drinks, mains, breakfast, etc.). The instructions are clear enough for even the most reluctant chef, with videos or step-by-step images outlining the process piece by piece. The app’s organizational tools help streamline the meal prep process; its planner feature allows you to select recipes and slate them into your weekly schedule. Since each recipe lets you select the ingredients to add to your shopping list, you can easily plan for several meals in a single trip to the store.
Deliciously Ella’s recipes have the kind of fun and vibrancy that make reimagining your diet feel easy. Alongside more standard fare like roasted vegetable, hummus sandwiches, and veggie lasagna are inventive options like jackfruit burgers and sage and apricot nut roast (a grain-free, meat-free loaf packed with Thanksgiving flavors).
Dessert is very much on the menu with over 100 listings that include chocolate-covered stuffed dates and Black Forest gateau.
Eating is only one part of the health equation. The app also includes yoga videos starting at only 10 minutes long and going up to 40, for all ages and goals. You’ll also find articles from Ella, who covers basic cooking primers like knife skills and kitchen equipment, plus deeper topics like cutting out waste and reducing stress. Ella’s podcast has its own spot in the app and delves into meatier (not that kind of meat) discussions on climate change, grief, and her own changing life.
