Hi folks, 

So I have a datatype in bubble of ingredients. In there we have name, img, some nutritional info and serving size i.e. 1 egg. 

I then have another datatype of recipes where the ingredients of each recipe is just a list of ingredients from the other datatype. 

The problem I have is this. 

Lets say recipe #1 has olive oil as an ingredient. 

In the ingredient datatype the default serving is 1 tbsp or just '1'. 

But lets say the recipe calls for 2 TBSP's. 

how do I allow customisation of the ingredient serving size (i.e. 1, 2 or 3 tbsp) on a recipe basis without overwriting the default in the ingredient data? 

I feel like I'm missing something really obvious here! help. thanks

Hi Mike,

A couple of ways you can go about this.

1. Three data types. Recipe, Ingredient, Serving. And if needed you can add more data types. This is a very good video on data architecture in Bubble:



2. Two data types and one option set. The option set you could set it as serving with options as one teaspoon, two teaspoons, three ... etc


Hope this helps.

Good luck!


Known about makerpad for a while but just joined. Should be good 😁  seen some impressive things in the forums already! 

I'd refer to myself as an accidental SaaS founder. Validated my first idea (a meal planning app for personal trainers) 4 years ago. Built it on wordpress. 

Since then it's been a rollercoaster of struggling with traditional Devs for 2 years then switching to no code. 

Recently built a udemy clone in Adalo for internal use. Am planning to rebuild my entire web design agency in Adalo because it'll massively streamline workflows and create a better experience for the clients i.e. instead of emailing us to ask about progress they'll be able to download the app and see what's happening with their project. 

First though I'm building something in bubble. So I'll be annoying everyone with questions most likely (it's quite a complex project) 😁 

Have a great day!
Hi Mike Sweeney , welcome!! Sounds like you have knack for apps! Keep us updated with what you're building in Adalo & Bubble. Excited to see what you come up with.
