Design brief

Organization name

Description of business

MoniMeals offers recipes on "healthy comfort food" and ideas for eating nutritious and delicious foods without feeling deprived. I am also a private fitness trainer, healthy chef, and cookbook writer. Moni Meals is a recipe blog I started 5 years ago. Mainly all healthy with a handful of decant recipes. I would like to have a meter rating to rate them.

Organization industry

Food & Drink


I want a graphic icon or "button" called "The Moni Meter" that I can use as a scale on my website The purpose of the icon is to show people who are using my recipes, a range in healthiness from "Delicious Healthy" to "Decadently Indulgent." (Titled just like that).
I don't think people should be deprived, but they also need to know when something is not an everyday choice. I see this sort of like a graphic you see on salsa jars to show Mild to Spicy. I'm picturing a fun, colorful graphic image (probably a vertical) with a scale from 1-5 - maybe coming out of an apple and transforming into something else, aybe a cupcake. I will rate every one of my 350 recipes on this scale, judging on overall nutrition (fat, fiber, sugar, etc - though I don't want to spell out all those things).
The MoniMeter will be placed within or alongside every recipe. Please be creative - my vibe is fun, vibrant, colorful, practical! I want both sides of the spectrums to be very hypnotizing so noone for example, is turned off by a decandant recipe ("will this make me fat") but rahter EXCITED and INSPIRED to make it! Excited and INSPIRED to make MANY of them! Same for all the "Deliciously Healthy" Recipes. I need a meter that speaks this and perhaps has 2 cute objects placed that represent both spectrums. (apple to cupcake) just for an example.

Further requirements

Please check out and its sister site
The MoniMeter will be on the MoniMeals site, but I cross-promote the two sites and both will give you a good sense of my style.

This icon will be featured on more than 350 recipes and I want it to really give my site a wow factor. I have NOT seen this on other meal sites or food blogs. I'm a big believer that food should be pleasurable and healthy eating doesn't mean torture, but I also want people to be aware that they need to mix "treat" food with "everyday" food. I need a great design to showcase that concept in a cool visual. Feel free to play with color and create something that pops. Thank you!
