Reciplease is a web-based application that suggests recipes that people can make based on the ingredients that they have at home. It takes ingredients a user enters and outputs various recipes that can be made with those ingredients. Reciplease aims to reduce food waste and spread unique cultures through different types of recipes.
Many people struggle with deciding what to cook with the ingredients that they have at home. Often, they opt to eat out or buy more ingredients instead, which creates a buildup of food waste and leads to a costlier standard of living.
Reciplease allows users to browse through suggested recipes based on the ingredients that they already have. It promotes exploration of new recipes, donation to those in need, and living a healthier life.
