In Grosh 4.13 we’ve improved recipes, meal plans, and added search in shopping list history, all in order to reduce food waste. Finally we’ve added a “Light mode”. Read all about it below!
If you edit a recipe, the system automatically attaches ingredient tags to it based on known groceries for your language. The groceries are auto-detected based on the most frequently bought items in your language.
This means you can tap the filter icon on the inspiration or recipes tabs of the Meals page, and find recipes that contain certain ingredients. This is very helpful if you have an ingredient with a short date and want to avoid food waste, as it lets you find something to cook using the ingredient in question.
Note: we are still re-indexing old recipes, so it might take a while for your recipes to become searchable. If you open, make a simple edit, then you force your recipe to be indexed straight away.
Time-of-day and standard meal plans
You can now tag meal with morning, midday, evening (or no tag) – which lets you specify which meals are meant for these times.
If you’ve been happy with a meal plan that you posted for a past week, you can now bookmark it. Head over to the Meals page, tab the history tab and find the week you want to bookmark, then tap … and select Bookmark from the menu. The bookmarked meal plan week becomes what we call a Standard Meal Plan which is visible under a section of that name on the Recipes tap. From there you can easily add the plan to an upcoming week.
Note: Planning your meals is a great way to reduce food waste too!
Search in shopping list history
Wonder if you have recently shopped a particular grocery? Now you can just search for something on the History tab to see when it was bought the last time. A great way to avoid buying the same thing again, and thus reducing food waste.
Previously we shipped a separate Grosh app with a simplified functionality “Grosh Light” for those who wanted just a simple shopping app. This app is now replaced with the full Grosh app that instead has a “Light mode” that can be toggled on the Settings screen.
