Foodily Finds The Right Recipe For Your Diet Or Picky Taste

Foodily is a massive search engine for nothing but recipes, that crawls food blogs, major recipe hubs, and cooking sites. Search results are laid out in a side-by-side, magazine-style layout, with ingredients and nutritional information listed for each recipe below an image of the dish. For the health-conscious, recipes can not only be searched by ingredient or name, but also by terms like “low fat” or “high fibre” as well.

For the pickier eaters, recipes that include certain ingredients can be excluded from search results by simply adding “no (ingredient)” to the search string. A simple search like “bacon” grabs over 17,000 recipe results, but there’s an option to limit your search to blogs, rather than major food networks, in case you like to keep things more creative in the kitchen. As an example, limiting the “bacon” search to blogs only netted 2,797 recipes, but many of them were the more adventurous type than what you’d see on Martha Stewart.

The nutritional information listed in the search results is human-readable, showing at-a-glance terms like “high” or “low” for things like sodium content or total fat. When the user hovers the mouse cursor over those terms, however, Foodily displays actual number figures by making calculations based on the USDA nutrition database. There are also small badges displayed at the top of search results if they match criteria to make them low fat, low carb, or high fibre—making it easier to pick out healthier dishes while browsing recipes.
