In case your New Years Resolution was to create less food waste, let me provide you with a digital treat that will help you solve the problem of never knowing what’s in your fridge.
I recently met up with Kasper, an inspiring app developer helping to make the world a better place, one app at a time.
His most recent app is called No Waste and unlike other waste-free apps, his makes the experience of saving food waste fun and easy.
The app provides different sectors like freezer, fridge and pantry that you can easily update with a simple tap & write. It will then keep track of the expiration date of the item and kindly remind you to use that item before it expires.
What is unique about No Waste is that next to providing the option of creating your own shopping list, the app actually lets you scan your shopping receipt in order to make it even easier to keep track of what you are buying.
My favourite feature on this app is by far the meal plan option, which allows me to fully plan out my meals by date and weekday. I have been obsessively using this feature ever since I started my new job in order not to skip meals and it makes me feel grown up AF.
Why I love this app:
It makes me more organized: I am new to meal prep, which means I need to form a consistent routine in order to create a habit that sticks. Planning my meals for the next week enables me to be more organized in my cooking schedules and results in healthier and more delicious meals.
It discourages food waste: By wasting food, I am basically throwing my hard earned money out of the window. The app lets me sort my food by expiration date, name or category and makes it hella easy to prevent that from happening. Definitely a no-brainer.
It prevents fights with the boyfriend:
Since, on this app, I can create a user profile and share my shopping list with my man, we don’t end up with multiple items bought due to misscommunication – drove me crazy in the past.
This post is in no way sponsored, I just deeply believe in the concept of preventing food waste and love the idea Kasper came up with to encourage that.
Download the app here and make sure to tell Kasper what you think of the app. He appreciates the feedback and is very hands on with making the user experience intuitive and fun.
