Lifestyle – Your profile settings

We’re frequently asked: Can I use FoodAdvisr if I don’t have a food allergy or intolerance?

And of course, the answer is YES.

The FoodAdvisr app has settings that can be used in a variety of ways, including with lifestyle preferences such as vegan, pescatarian and more.

But what does that mean?

It means you can wave goodbye to food anxiety. Whether you’re sat on the sofa unsure where to go, looking for recipe inspiration or doing your grocery shop, FoodAdvisr helps you to ensure you’re always eating foods that are safe for your preferences.

Eliminating the stress of label checking

Giving you that peace of mind

Many of us will never know what it feels like to have to check every meal we even think about eating, read ingredients lists on a daily basis or simply ask servers for free-from options. As your personal FoodAdvisr, we give you that peace of mind when eating out, cooking at home and shopping in your local supermarket.

How easy is it to set up your FoodAdvisr?

Setting up the app is easy, simply visit your profile settings, visit ‘Lifestyle’ in the profile carousel and toggle on your chosen preference. This setting will then be used on every scan, meal check, menu browse and recipe we find you.

Can these settings be changed once they’ve been set?

Of course! All you have to do is go into your settings and adjust them accordingly. They’ll be updated instantly and used in all future scans and menu checks.

Is the app just for people with a food allergy?

Not necessarily! If there’s a certain food (Cashew nuts) or food group (such as all nuts) that you’d like to include, or exclude, you can add that into your profile and scan food/check menus for that too! You can use the app simple for your food lifestyle choice (such as vegan), as well as exclude certain ingredients that you just don’t like. 

Does that mean I can use FoodAdvisr for friends and family?

Yes, definitely. You may be looking to dine out with a friend that is dairy free, gluten free or allergic to certain foods – all of these settings are available in your FoodAdvisr and can be edited when needed. That way you can check menus before deciding where to go!
