Do you have an iPhone? Looking for food related apps? How about one that is helping people minimize food waste by suggesting recipes to cook with leftovers? Well, now, there’s one out there to help!
According to BBC news, this new app, made by the Waracle team will ask the user to add leftover food to an on-screen blender, then shake the phone to create a recipe! Not only that but also offers a portion size planner and more tips on reducing food waste.
The app is free and designed for the “Love Food Hate Waste” campaign in Scotland and Wales, based on the fact that 566,000 tonnes (or 623908 tons) of food is wasted every year. It’s been estimated that two thirds of that wasted food could have been eaten. There has apparently been 14,500 downloads since the app came out, showing that people are interested in both being more eco-friendly but also saving money while doing it.
For those without iPhones, don’t fret, the Love Food website has the recipe planner and more information on how to curb food waste and food spending.
