Food is one of those threads in life that unite us all. Every time we decide to raise a morsel of food to our mouths, it’s not just a mindless act. By breaking bread together, we are consciously deciding to further nourish ourselves and our lives. While many people like to give grace before a meal, the U.S., in typical U.S. fashion, has made it a custom to create food holidays for virtually anything. Whether it’s celebrating a dish, a certain country’s cuisine, or a specific ingredient, there’s a pretty good chance the U.S. has a holiday in its honor.

Some might feel that this practice has gotten a bit excessive over the years, but we at One Green Planet, applaud it! After all, with all of the terrible things happening in the world, we could all use an excuse to celebrate, and what better way to celebrate but with food! We’ve also taken it upon ourselves to take the mouth-watering recipes on One Green Planet, and not only celebrate National Food Holidays, but create specialized features that highlight these recipes for their best attributes, and they can all be found on the Food Monster app! That’s right, your recipe Googling is about to be a thing of the past! Want to partake in Meatless Monday with a meaty jackfruit dish? We’ve compiled the “Most Jammin’ Jack Fruit Recipes” ever for you! Want to revamp a traditional Italian dinner with some modern vegan flair? No problem, just have a look at our New Takes on Classic Italian Recipes feature! Food Monster‘s Features section allows you to hone in on your craving, and find the best recipes to satisfy it!

The Features section also helps allergen-prone foodies a ton! Whether you’re looking to avoid soy, nuts, gluten, or dairy, there is a feature with your name on it. We’ll teach you about all the alternative flours that exist nowadays, how to make vegan cheese from scratch, plenty of nut-free recipes, and how to achieve tasty dishes while still avoiding gluten. And these aren’t bland recipes that just happen to fit certain dietary specifications, they are recipes worth getting excited over no matter what diet you follow! Check out the Food Monster app (available right here) for guidance, awesome holiday lists, or simply to remind yourself that if there’s one thing worth celebrating in this world, it’s food.
