Recipe books and web sites are a great way to get ideas for meal you can prepare, but once you have decided on a particular recipe, it is not uncommon to find that you are lacking at least one of the key ingredients. The Love Food Hate Waste iPhone apps works in a different way to many other recipe apps, enabling you to make the most of what you have available.
Rather than browsing through a list of ideas and checking to see which you are able to make, the ap works in reverse. Start by indicating which ingredients you have to work with and indicate how many people you are preparing food for. Whizz up the ingredients in the 'blender' and list of suitable recipes will be displayed for you to work through.
The app can also be used to plan ahead with meals for the week and once you have decided what you would like to prepare, you can build up a shopping list to ensure that you don’t forget anything. The app really helps to cut down on food wastage as you are encouraged to only buy quantities that will be used, but any leftovers you may have can usually be incorporated into one of the hundred f recipes on offer.
