Use ChatGPT for Kitchen Conversions
Another way to use ChatGPT is to ask it to help you convert metric measurements to a different serving size. For example, you can ask ChatGPT:

ChatGPT is great at providing accurate conversions that you'll need to cook tasty meals.
Use ChatGPT for Meal Planning and Prep

"What simple healthy ingredients can I pack as a snack for the week?"
Use ChatGPT to Avoid Food Waste
Lastly, if you bought a bundle of food but only ended up needing a little, ChatGPT can help you to create a recipe to avoid wasting excess food.
For example, those overripe bananas on your counter on the brink of complete mush can be added to a great dish with the help of generative AI.
