On any recipe or food page, click on the black button “Add to collections”. Indicate which collection you would like to add that recipe to. Use the default “My Collection” or create others. The black button will change to “See my collections” – click on it to visit the collections page.
Your personal collections are temporarily stored on this page. Click on “Add Pre-made Collections” to add collections created by Hawaiʻi Foods. Click into any of your collections to see your recipes. You can organize each collection into different groups. This is useful for meal planning (by day of week, meal of day, or any other organization scheme). You may change serving sizes as well.
Click on the shopping cart icon to generate a shopping list. Select which groups or which items from groups you would like, then click on “generate shopping list” to get an itemized shopping list. You may edit the list as needed. You may share this as a link or print it out. The shopping list only works for recipes.
