Runtasty App FAQs

1. Where did the idea for the Runtasty app come from?

The Runtasty app started out as a DONI idea here at Runtastic. Every couple months we have our Day Of New Ideas (DONI) where Runtastics are encouraged to bring their best ideas to life! We must say we have come up with some pretty amazing ideas during those days. Initially, it started as an idea for a video series on social media and YouTube. The views and engagement proved that you guys absolutely loved these videos, so we thought the logical next step was to create an app.

2. How can I save my favorites?

At the bottom right corner of each recipe image and video, you will find a heart icon. Tap this icon and the recipe will automatically be saved to your favorites for safe keeping. We plan on adding many more new recipes to this app, so be sure to mark your favorites so you can easily go back to the “Favorites” tab and have all of them in one spot.

3. I have celiac’s disease and cannot eat gluten – are there recipes for me as well?

Definitely! We have a whole category created just for gluten-free recipes!

4. Whose hands are those cooking up all the delicious recipes?

It’s a secret! Just kidding! Those magical cooking hands are of our beloved dietitian, Julia! She’s also a regular contributor to our blog giving you great information about eating healthy at a restaurant, what your food cravings actually mean and much more.
