Dinner, dinner, dinner. It’s always quite a dilemma of what to make, mostly because I rarely keep the fridge stocked with ingredients and end up making mixed veggies and some sort of chicken or fish. Sure, that’s healthy but can get a bit boring at times. This is a total cop-out since there are thousands upon thousands of recipes out there. My friend Alex has even started her own blog called Burke’s Bites and has been documenting some wonderful recipes that I must try out.
But, I know myself and I know that even when I leave work right on time, it’s not entirely plausible to work out, whip up a gourmet meal, relax, and go to bed by 10pm. Even after shuffling my schedule so that I work out in the mornings, my energy level and creativity usually has diminished by the time I walk in the door.
It’s also safe to say a large percentage of New York City residents rely on Seamless. Knowing the take-out options – one is bound to get in the habit of ordering burgers and fries and pizzas (oh my). Yes, w all have days to chill out with Ben & Jerry, but I live by the idea of “eat good feel good” and definitely feel the effects of eating too much on the not-so-healthy side. So, in a city filled with free fitness, Soul Cycle, and green juice enthusiasts, there should be a better or healthier option, right?
Based in San Francisco and New York, this relatively new food service plans to make eating better easier, which seems to be a national trend. The food is made by top of the line chefs and delivered to you by some of the best drivers. Talk about quality service!
Have a food allergy or particular eating or dietary habit? Have no fear, they have a variety of filters to add to your order so you can select the perfect meal.
Talk about the plethora of options. Some of these meals I could only dream of making on my own. Part of this reason is that I’m not a huge fan of leftovers and most delectable recipes make recipes in bulk (note 4 to 6 to 8 people). Unless I’m cooking for the apartment or for friends, I end up being a short order cook and sticking to the basics.
~ GIVE FOOD FEEL GOOD ~
Gift cards to Target or Starbucks are so old school (but still appreciated). Here’s yet another way that you can 1) show someone you love them 2) send a thank you 3) just be nice
Not only can you give the gift of food to friends and family, but it’s also a charitable company as well! I bet it you’ll feel 2x as good knowing that you’ve eaten a tasty and healthy meal AND helped give back.
So now that you know about this booming business, maybe, just maybe Munchery can be the new solution to your dining dilemmas.
