This project I began before my official UX training as a way to solve a real problem with an app and familiarize myself with Adobe Xd.
When trying to do two restrictive diets at the same time, I found that it was difficult and overwhelming to keep track of what I could and couldn’t eat. I looked at lots of shopping lists, and compared, and tried to find things that fit both diets, but did not have much success.
I just wanted a way to choose more than one diet and get a list of the foods that overlapped. I wanted to easily find recipes so I could make a shopping list to take to the grocery store.
I found that I was not the only one who was struggling with a restrictive diet. One friend who had been on a diet called “Low FODMAP” said he almost cried the first time he walked into the grocery store after starting the diet because he had no idea what he could buy and ended up just eating mostly potatoes.
The question was...
“How can I help people easily find shopping lists and creative recipes for the food they need to solve their health problems?”
