LiveLoveManja is Intrigued by Clean Plates Platform and Corporate Model: Dining App for the Sustainably Conscious and the Healthy Eaters

Manja came across Clean Plates dining app via Facebook. Clean Plates is a dining app, a website, a cook book, and a bi-coastal restaurant guide (LA & NYC) for those who live a sustainable and healthy eating lifestyle. Intrigued by their press mentions (LAist and DailyCandyLA to name a few, fellow Tweeters) Ashley Nicolei, founder of LiveLoveManja, poked around the Clean Plates website and was pleased with the information and the honest reviews she came across. 

Clean Plates is praised for their user-ability, the simplistic and sleek design, and their eye for foodie trends (popular chefs and trendy restaurants). They are an ideal guide and resource for the urban foodie, the business professional, the traveler (vagabond), and the socialite. 

When coming across their “corporate contact” page, Manja was impressed by the “dietary options” graphic (pictured above Clean Plates Dietary Options PNG, CleanPlates). Dietary preferences such as “gluten free” are expected, since the preference and food intolerance (allergen) is trending for 2014. However, we were pleased to see that less commonly targeted preferences (micro niche) such as Meat & Flexitarian, Naturally Sweet, Vegetarian & Vegan, Naturally Sweet (no fake sweeteners), and Raw Foodism were honored. Wow! Impressive!

While there are many nutritionists and websites that honor the less commonly targeted preferences, they are usually unique to the specific diet preference. It is a pleasant surprise to see multiple micro niches and diet preferences honored in one place, one app, one website, one cookbook. Great job Clean Plates! You have our attention!
