Google Assistant now follows your dietary restrictions when recommending recipes

For anyone that loves cooking and spending time mixing and matching things in the kitchen, online recipe sites are a godsend. You type in a few ingredients and get dozens if not hundreds of recipe suggestions. But if you have a dietary restriction and don't want to waste your time sifting through the results looking for the ones that fit your preference, you can now tick a couple of boxes and Google will remember that for you. At least it will do so in Assistant on smart displays.

Google improves Knowledge Graph search cards: Material refresh, additional information, more tabs

A few months ago, Google began testing a new interface for search card results, which removes the bold header color, uses a new Follow button with the Discover logo, and introduces more tabs for accessing relevant information about the subject. That interface seems to be rolling out more widely now and comes with redesigns for almost all search result cards and plenty of added information.

Food Logging Is Old School: 'Eat This Much' Plans Your Meals Ahead Based On Dietary Preferences And Fitness Goals

If you've used MyFitnessPal or any other kind of food logging app, you'd know that it can be daunting to log every single thing you eat. And if you've tried to follow diets to lose weight or build muscle, you'd know that there are so many strategies and that implementing them takes a lot of work and time especially when you take on the impossible task of finding adequate recipes and organizing them in a way that makes sense. Having lived through both scenarios, I am completely drawn to Eat This Much's concept.

Instead of painstakingly logging what you ate and discovering at the end of the day that you didn't meet your goal, or browsing through thousands of recipes trying to find the ones that seem to fit your goal, you just tell Eat This Much what your dietary preference and fitness goals are, and it uses its smarts to automate everything and take the guesswork out of meal planning.

While there are dozens of personal cookbook apps floating around on Google Play, Flavourit looks to set itself apart from the rest with a few unique features.

It's got an interesting and intuitive interface that makes adding and sorting recipes quick and easy, but my personal favorite feature is sharing the recipe as an image. Anyone who cooks has needed to share some homebrewed concoction before, so the ability to just instantly create a good-looking and informative graphic is super cool.
