We describe our solution using two main scenarios:
- Finding a recipe which is convenient.
- Planning a meal which includes non-dieters and shopping for the ingredients.
We chose these scenarios because they were similar to stories we found in our user research.
Throughout each scenario, we describe features of the website which are not necessarily
central to the scenario characters but which addressed other emotional and informational needs.
