(Full Version) All-in-One Food Hub: Recipes, Meal Planner, & Grocery List

What to Eat

A doc for people who like food and order.

Hi there!

I created this doc to help automate answering the unending question of
“What to Eat?”
. One of my main sources of life joy is the opportunity to eat something tasty several times per day, but I found myself constantly trying to find smarter ways to organize all of the micro-decisions and information bits that go into keeping one’s body nourished.

This is an
all-in-one food hub
solving for several use cases and pain points I’ve faced:
Recipe library
, with ability to check off ingredients + steps as you cook
Restaurants library
, so I can add when I’m eating out to my meal plan
Meal planner
, that you can easily drag and drop
Grocery list
, that can parse how much of each item you need from your meal plan
Log of when you last purchased perishable grocery items
Random recommendation generator
, for the tired mind!
In its current form, it is
a live kitchen inventory (as I personally lack the discipline to open Coda every time I eat an egg), but you could create this with a new view and buttons to + / - inventory!
