NutriAdmin allows you to create, store, and manage a collection of recipes. You can use the recipes feature for mainly two purposes:

  • To store and keep organized your recipes over time, so that you can download them with 1 click when you need to hand them in to a client
  • To add your recipes to meal plans.

This article covers how to create a recipe in NutriAdmin.

Step 1: Click on Recipes & Foods then My Recipes.

Step 3: Click on New Recipe.

You will get 4 options: to create your own recipe, to search the recipe database, to import from url, or generate recipe with AI. The first option lets you start a recipe from scratch, whilst the second option lets you search for ideas and edit the recipes you find. The third option is to copy a recipe from a website. The fourth option is the AI recipe generation feature with automatic nutritional analysis, photography, ingredients, and cooking instructions.

Searching the recipe database is a feature available if you are on the "popular" plan or higher. Generating a recipe with AI can be an add on to your plan. For more information, please check our pricing page.

When you click on upload, your browser will let you choose a picture from your computer to upload. Please take into account there are restrictions on what kinds of images you can upload.

Step 5: The next step is to add a name and basic information for your recipe. You can enter the name, total time for preparation, and number of servings for your recipe as shown below.

The energy and macros per serving are automatically calculated and shown on top as seen in below. In this example, it shows zero since I haven't added any ingredients yet.

Step 6: Add instructions to your recipe. These should be a series of steps that will help your clients in preparing your recipe. You can use any format you want for these instructions. Many users find it practical to list steps for preparation. Below is an example.

Step 7: You can optionally add any extra comments or the source url for your recipe if you want to provide attribution.
