Making supper and kid lunch can sometimes be overwhelming. One of my friends used to fix that problem by preparing all her meals of the week on Sunday so they don’t have to worry about what to eat during the week.
I thought the idea was brilliant, but how to decide what to eat before your week. Why not use an app that creates a weekly meal plan for you. You could mix this idea with idea #35 and optimize your meal planning for what is already available in your fridge.
The user chooses what days and meals (breakfast, dinner, etc.) they want to plan a meal for and the apps or services would create a different meal for each. I could even have a leftover option where you want to keep the leftovers.
The apps could build your meal from what you already have and make suggestions on what is missing by giving a grocery list of what you need to buy.
Combine with the service from Idea #32, the app could predict what will be the cost for everything, maybe even calculate the price of each meal. It could suggest which grocery store will be the cheapest or suggest a list of possible meals and their average cost.
How can apps make money?
The apps could offer coupons on certain missing items for your meals since the user already needs them and it’ll save them some money while giving the service some commission. It’s a win win.
You can always include ads in the app that can be removed.
The app may suggest having premium membership where you can plan meals for the week and the free version can only plan for a day.
