Synopsis of the App
The Whole Pantry (TWP) app describes itself as the go-to place for health, wellness and lifestyle information. The goal is to restore balance and empower the TWP community to live a whole life. To that end, the app provides recipes, lifestyle guides and articles on natural medicine, fitness and well-being aimed at healthy living with a back to basics approach.

  • Recipes are limited in quantity (48 total at the time of this review).

Bottom Line
The Whole Pantry app earns 5 stars for a beautiful, user-friendly interface. Although worthy of a download, this early version lacks the depth you’d expect from a comprehensive resource. With some additions, this app has the potential to become a valuable resource for plant based recipes and lifestyle information.
