What Is Daily Harvest?

Daily Harvest sends pre-portioned delicious food built on organic fruits and vegetables straight to your door. You can choose from a wide range of options including harvest bowls, smoothies, oat bowls, chia bowls, and more. Each cup is packed with whole ingredients that are all plant-based: a Sweet Potato + Wild Rice Hash Harvest Bowl filled with avocado chunks, great northern beans, and organic tomatoes, a Banana + Greens Smoothie filled with kale, spinach, and wheatgrass that's actually (!) delicious, and a berry-full Mulberry + Dragon Fruit Oat Bowl, among tons of other options. Each box (in sizes of 9, 12, or 24 cups) is delivered frozen with dry ice to keep it from thawing, and each cup easily stacks in your freezer, ready to be pulled out and heated or blended when you want it. Daily Harvest is designed for busy people who want to eat healthy, filling, delicious food on the go.

I Tried It—Here Are My Thoughts

I tested a variety of Daily Harvest food for this story, including harvest bowls, smoothies, oat bowls, and lattes. Long story short: I was blown away by how tasty and filling each cup was. As a vegetarian, I loved that the Harvest Bowls are prepped sans meat, featuring whole grains and veggies as their star ingredients and main sources of nutrition. I was also shocked by what the cups didn't contain: added ingredients or poor-quality foods designed to make them taste better or be more filling. Each ingredient was clearly listed on the outside of the cup—not just the main ingredients, but every ingredient.

There were so many options I didn't think Daily Harvest could make tasty, but each and every one was totally delicious. I happily sipped my Banana + Greens smoothie all morning. The Cauliflower Rice + Pesto harvest bowl rivaled pesto dishes I've been served in restaurants, only I could rest assured that this version was so much healthier thanks to cashew butter and nutritional yeast. The Chaga + Chocolate Latte (made with super-nutritious chaga mushrooms), which I blended with milk and a handful of ice, was one of my hands-down favorites (and trust me, it had some stiff competition) due to its subtly-sweet-but-not-sugary taste and the energy boost it gave me that lasted through the morning.

I would highly (and enthusiastically) recommend Daily Harvest to anyone who wants healthy, easy-to-prepare food delivered to meet their on-the-go lifestyle. As a vegetarian, I loved how Daily Harvest is built on organic fruits and vegetables, but if you're a heartier-eating type, these bowls can easily be customized with grilled chicken, rice, or whatever you'd prefer. Daily Harvest is an amazing way to get fresh, tasty fruits and vegetables in your diet you might not try otherwise, without spending the time shopping and prepping meals—just grab your cup, prepare it in just a few minutes, and enjoy!
