how do i remove ingredients when searching for recipes

We understand that many of our users have dietary restrictions, whether its food allergies or for lifestyle and religious reasons. That's why Meal Garden makes it easy to search for recipes without select ingredients. 

Lets say you're looking for breakfast ideas, but you don't want any eggs. Excluding eggs from your search is as easy as typing (without quotes) "breakfast #not eggs". Any ingredient entered after "#not" will be excluded from your search.

Keep in mind, you're not restricted to certain meals of the day (ie. breakfast, lunch, dinner) when you're using this feature - you can do it on a recipe basis as well. Let's say you want a pasta recipe, but you don't want any meat. Simply type "pasta #not meat" and you should find a wide variety of vegetarian pasta dishes.
