Discover New Recipes by Taking a Photo of an Ingredient With This App

At home we are constantly discussing what exactly we are going to cook for dinner. While there is definitely some meal planning that happens before we go to the grocery store, sometimes we come across something that is too good to pass up, but also does not fit into the “meal plan” for the week. … Or we buy something according to the plan, and we are left with a ton to eat. Anyway, there are questions. This week I came across an app that can help answer some questions.

An app called PixFood for iOS and Android uses artificial intelligence to analyze your food and make recipe recommendations. For example, a picture of a raspberry might suggest a smoothie or pie. A photo of a tomato can elevate a marinara recipe.

Yes, you can find these recipes yourself on the Internet. The idea here is that when you’ve reached the full point of ¯ \ _ (ツ) _ / ¯, it can help you point to your destination more than just blindly searching a recipe site for “potatoes.”

The in-app recipes also often include step-by-step videos to guide you through the cooking process.

It’s not something you’re going to be using all the time, but it can definitely help you find a use for all that leftover kale.
