Learning about the impact of sustainable businesses and causes was definitely a driving factor behind our project. We wanted to create a tool that made eating sustainably an activity tied to exploration and fun for the whole family. We also found that we didn't see any recipe websites or cookbooks that focused on sustainability while also allowing users to sort recipes by their personal preferences and dietary restrictions. All of this bought us to the idea of Food Savor.
What it does
Food Savor caters to your leftover ingredients, dietary restrictions, food allergies, and cuisine preferences, recommending you recipes for delicious meals that will prevent you from having to throw away food again. Food Savor's recipes are searched via ingredient(s), helping you discover new recipes to try out with your old ingredients.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
The search and filter feature actually was also the most difficult challenge we faced while making the project. We also ran into issues trying to implement a login feature and a database that would store the diet restrictions of each user. There were a lot of times when we didn't understand why our project was not building, and it took a lot of debugging and trying roundabout ways to get the finished product we have.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Our amazing design! Our designers made wonderful mockups, presentation slides, and UI components, and they are the reason our project looks as good as it does.
What we learned
We learned a lot about React.js components, libraries, UI/UX Design, and Web Development in general. We also learned a lot about using GitHub to share code and using Figma to brainstorm and design prototypes. We learned a lot about accessing data from JSON files, creating forms, and integrating React with p5.
