Who is the target audience for your idea and how does it inspire the end user to lead a healthier life?

Everyone who have access to near by SuperMarket and prefer to purchase fruit/vegetables daily based on the meal plan. While many people prefer fresh vegetables daily, many also purchase for certain number of days. This application can check for the current prices and help in smarter meal planning. Meanwhile people will have the medium to plan their refrigerator inventory in a better way.

1. Application parses for the current prices of produce fruit/vegetables on a daily basis from the existing web sources or supermarket portals.

2. User can keep a log of "Whats in my Fridge ?". User can also earn badges based on the history of having the most most fresh/healthy stuff stuffed. 

3. When users go to supermarket, the app suggest them possible items that they can prepare. It can also be a IFTTT setting such as "Whenever I am in supermarket, surprise me with a notification"

4. In the settings, user can even set the daily budget. If they have a diet-off day on that friday, they can have a little bigger budget for that extra indulgence.

What early, lightweight experiment can you try out in your own community to find out if the idea will meet your expectations?

Keep a log of price changes for 2 weeks and then try to design a fixed budget meal plan.
