If you’re hoping to power your 2023 plants you may need some help getting started.
Whether you’re new to veganism, attending Veganuary 2023, or have been living a plant-based life for a while, there’s always room for technology to make life easier.
From finding the best (and sometimes surprising) vegan snacks (like McDonald’s Double McPlant) to helping you shop for cruelty-free products, here are the best apps to send you on your happy meat-free journey…

Happy Cow is one of the most comprehensive apps out there, showing you all the vegan-friendly restaurants in your area.
You can enter your current zip code or track your location, and it will show you vegan options as well as plant-based reviews and photos from other people.
If you travel a lot this is a great time saver and will help you stick to your vegan diet.
It is available on iPhone (£3.99) and Android (£3.59).
The Vegan Friendly App is designed to make veganism more accessible than ever for vegans, vegetarians and anyone looking to reduce their consumption of animal products.
The Vegan Friendly team already has an active social media presence, sharing the latest vegan product launches and exploring vegan food options across the country. The app is an extension of that to help you find the best plant-based dishes around, making it ideal for vegans on the go or discovering a new place to try.
You can download the app for free on iPhone and Android.
