Real talk: I can’t tell you how many times Daily Harvest has saved me in desperately hangry situations.
Today I’m sharing My Real Thoughts About Daily Harvest! Morning, noon or night, these magical & modern white cups with colorful lids are in a big way, little lifesavers. When I first tried Daily Harvest over a year ago, I was a teeny bit skeptical because I had never done a meal delivery service before. Will the food/veggies be fresh? How do they stay fresh in transit to my house? Do I have room for them in my freezer?
My worries washed away after a super cute box arrived completely frozen with ingredients as fresh as can be. I realized their packaging is impressive and totally on point. I didn’t have to make room for them, I wanted to, out of pure love and admiration for healthy, quick meals and smoothies ha. I share my favorite cups below, to help you decide what to order, along with an amazing coupon code for 3 FREE cups!!! (hint, it’s glowingfridge)!
Daily Harvest delivers real, unprocessed, unrefined foods in the most convenient form possible: frozen. Their produce is flash frozen, after being picked at peak ripeness instead of the fruits or veggies in store that are picked way before they are ripe enough to eat, so they can ripen in transit and sit in warehouses until we buy them (I know, it’s sad!). But Daily Harvest does it right and freezes their produce within 24 hours of being harvested, when flavor and nutrients are at their max, in peak ripeness! I mean, these cups are bursting with bold flavor.
What I love most about Daily Harvest is their choice of thoughtful, nutrient-dense ingredients and food pairings, and how you don’t have to prepare anything. Not to mention every cup is vegan and the important veggies and fruit that should be bought organic, are organic. Their product line consist of smoothies, harvest bowls, soups, overnight oats, chia parfaits and to-die-for lattes. Plus, they incorporate superfoods like chaga, turmeric, blue majik spirulina and more. Depending on which cup you choose, you’ll either add liquid and blend or add liquid and heat the ingredients on the stovetop or in a microwave (perfect for work lunches!). You can then pour it back into the cup to enjoy and save dishes. The smoothie lids come with a hole for your reusable straws which makes them perfect for on-the-go!
Sometimes I’ll add extra volume to the cups if I’m super hungry, it just depends. I’ll either add vegan protein powder to the smoothies or extra veggies/chickpeas to the harvest bowls or soups. Or I’ll serve the harvest bowls over a bed of greens to get more greens in my day. I can’t even imagine if these cups were available to me during college!!! I would have been so much healthier.
Daily Harvest saves me when:
- I’m too lazy or tired and can’t be bothered to cook
- I have no idea what to eat and nothing sounds good
- I’m too busy to make my own morning smoothie or meal in general
- I want a warm (and very fresh) cup of soup or hot meal for lunch
- I arrive back home from traveling and there’s no food in the house
- My boyfriend eats all the food in the house, and I don’t want to grocery shop
- I don’t feel like cooking or cleaning after a late workout
