This is my second Alexa skill and the first one I created using conversations API and it is very helpful a lot of time saving while creating the back end.

I joined the hackathon since I enjoy learning new things and buy gadgets that I can develop stuff.

What it does

A tool that generates full meal plans in less than a second that can be fully customized based on your preferences.

How I built it

I used node.js and a lot of math to solve some equations that can generate a menu based on the user's age, height and weight.

Challenges I ran into

It was kind of confusing understand how to create Alexa conversations dialogs but watching the twitch videos it helped a lot

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

I'm proud that I was able to finish a very well functional MVP and the video 10 minutes before deadline!! Also I was able to create 3 Alexa conversations APIs. One for generate the meal plan, one for swapping the food using context carry over and the last one to generate a list.

What I learned

I learned how to use Alexa conversations and create dialogs for it.

What's next for Healthy meals

For the next version I will add storing the user session into a database, so I can delegate the dialog and don't ask him again for the data. Also add APL to show the menu in a list. And finally create meal plans in advance like the whole week so the user can have a full shopping list and order it online.
