The Details

The new app from Pick Up Limes is now available in the Apple App Store for iPhone [View in App Store] and as of October 2023, the app has 356 reviews with an average of 4.9 out of 5 stars.

The app will soon to be in the Google Play Store for Android. [Android] For now, Android users can still enjoy the Pick Up Limes website and YouTube videos.

The app subscription is $3.99 monthly or $32.99 per year. This seems like a great value for what the app provides, and it’s an easy way to support the wonderful global work of the Pick Up Limes team.

One App. Many Functions.

The app has over 900 plant-based recipes, with a new recipe added each weekday. When you choose a recipe, or several, a shopping list is generated based on the ingredients you’ll need. There is a “nourishment wheel” to visualize nine categories of food and nutrients. Below are seven reasons to get the app.

7 Reasons to Get The App

  1. VALUE — When the Pick Up Limes e-book was released a few years ago, it included 200 recipes for about $10. The app gives you access to over 900 recipes and many more features for about $4 per month or $33 annually. If you’re committed to a plant-based diet long-term, having access to many recipes and tools are essential to sustaining food diversity and avoiding mundane repetitive meals.
  2. PREPARATION — There are detailed instructions on how to prepare the various meals. This offers experiential education that can help people innovate and become more skilled in the kitchen.
  3. PHOTOGRAPHY — If you’re a photographer, and particularly if you’re a foodie photographer, the app is loaded with beautiful high quality photos that will inspire you to take your photography to the next level.
  4. APP DESIGN — For anyone interested in app design, this is a beautiful and simply designed app that could be used as a general guide. The color palette, fonts, layout, and flow are quite good.
  5. HEALTH — If you start eating the delicious plant-based meals and drinks described in the app, it’s likely you’ll feel a positive difference in your energy level, clarity of mind, and overall wellbeing.
  6. MINDSET — If you’ve been brought up with a traditional four food groups perspective, the Nourish wheel of nine food areas to consider will help expand your thinking about your own personalized foundation of foods to rely on.
  7. IMPACT — As explained in more detail below, the Pick Up Limes team and mission are having a much needed positive global impact. Purchasing the app is a simple way to support and promote their work.

Pick Up Limes Impact

Here are a few ways that Pick Up Limes seems to have a much needed positive impact on the world.

  • CHEERFUL — The video content and photos convey a sincere cheerful positivity that is uplifting and creates a positive mindset. This is complemented by the very high quality colorful photos of food. Putting people in a positive mood has great value.
  • INTERNATIONAL — The Pick Up Limes team consists of a diversity of people from many cultures and nations cooperatively working together. That’s something we need more of. They are based in the Netherlands which is ranked at #4 among all countries for positive impact by the Good Country Index. [View Ratings]
  • RELATIONSHIPS — The Pick Up Limes approach to eating seems to be based on relationships. The farmer has a relationship with plants and the earth. We have a relationship with vendors at the farmers market. We prepare food together and enjoy it with family and friends. All these relationships nurture us and foster a better society.
  • WELLNESS — The quiet revolution of plant-based nutritious foods helps promote better health for humans and the planet.
