Simplified Supper

Simplified Supper is intended to make meal planning easy, allowing the user to see at a glance what they have coming up so grocery shopping is a breeze. By looking at the meals the user has planned for the week, Simplified Supper provides suggested recipes based on the percentage of ingredients that can be repurposed from your chosen meals.

Get Started

When a user first registers an account with Simplified Supper they will be taken through a series of prompts to select their first recipe. By selecting what type of cuisine and course they would like, the user is then presented with all recipes that match their search and are able to select any of them to view more details or add to the calendar, where they can then view their suggested recipes.
