Mint.com recently released data they have aggregated across many users regarding how much is spent on food monthly.
Some interesting highlights (these are all averages per month):
Add in spending on other miscellaneous (coffee, alcohol & bars, etc..) and the monthly spending comes to $581.46 per month per person.
At Munchery, we believe you can do better and get a few dinners done for you by professional chefs. Each meal costs less than eating at an average restaurant, yet the food is significantly better tasting AND healthy to boot!
Other interesting average amounts spent at these popular fast food chains:

This is what Munchery is about, leaving it to the chef to decide the menu for you!

We subscribed with Sweet Melissa’s the past couple days. Chef Melissa Furano personally delivered the meals herself!
There’s just something exciting about looking forward to see what we would get. Here goes:
Pistachio crusted chicken roulade filled with caramelized onion and feta, with side of romesco sauce
Served with farro tossed in spinach pesto and garlicky haricot vert
Shrimp tacos with mango salsa, cocunut cilantro rice, black beans and corn tortillas
(we got 2 of these)
The meals came in compostable containers. The portions were generous and we quickly devoured the meals.
You can wipe off that drool now!
So a few days ago, I subscribed to Evolution Catering.
Yesterday, we got the delivery. It came in a brown bag which contains our 4 meals packed nicely and also labeled.
Who cares about the bag, what about the food? Well, they were drool-worthy, indeed.
Balsamic Butter Steak
Chicken Cordon Bleu and Mashed Root Veggies
Mac n’ Cheese
Needless to say I cleaned my plate. We usually finish dinner around 9, but thanks to not having to cook we were all done by 8. Pretty amazing
