We’ve posted a few recipe/food websites before, and this one might be our favorite. Simply enter the number of calories and number of meals you want to eat in a day, and the site will spit out an entire day’s worth of meals/recipes for you.
The site has a bunch of extra features like auto-meal planning if you make an account, but the home page alone is a great source of ideas. The screenshot below shows the result after I spent about 3 seconds on the inputs.
We love useful websites that are easy to use, and this page does just that, enjoy!

If I could go back in time to change what I chose to pursue right after high school, I would.
