Local start-up YoRipe, which just launched its app last week, is hopping on board the current trend of healthy eating. Touted as a cooking and grocery platform for the diet-conscious, it partners with big companies like Lee Kum Kee and Knorr, as well as local brands Kroodi and Modern Mum, to provide users with Asian-inspired recipes based on their favorite ingredients.
Whatever diet you’re on – vegan, keto, pescatarian, paleo, vegetarian, or gluten-free – the app claims to have a recipe for you, even if you’re simply leaning toward healthier choices.
Just key in your dietary preferences, such as the foods you avoid or are allergic to, and your goals, like weight loss or muscle building. YoRipe will take all that into account, along with your culinary proficiency and the number of people you’re cooking for, and come up with a customized handful of recipes for you.
Once you’ve gotten your pick from a selection of more than 1,000, the app can generate a grocery list for you to refer to when out shopping. It’s also got practical suggestions for under-30 minute meals and “date night” dishes, and even categorizes recipes based on moods like “homesick” and “Netflix marathon” – pretty easy to follow, even for amateur home cooks.
The founders are looking to enable grocery delivery services in the future, as well as add on features like recipe recommendations based on fridge leftovers, too.
YoRipe is free to download on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
