Random Review Wednesday: Quick, healthy lunches and snacks for 2019
I work a lot.
I hate stopping to cook or go out for lunch.
I am frequently on the go and need to be able to make something, quickly, and sometimes need to take it with me.
I like to eat organic, healthy food – and love to eat a lot of vegetables.
I’ve found a quick, organic solution, which allows me to eat a lot of vegetables and fruit, without having to leave my house, and without spending more than 5 minutes to prepare: Daily Harvest.
I order a box of 12 “cups,” which can be in the form of smoothies, harvest bowls, soups, lattes, oat bowls, and chia bowls. (Now through January 31, you can get 3 free cups with code RE-878DTT5).
Typically, I order mostly harvest bowls & soups, with maybe one or two smoothies. Although the smoothies are delicious, I prefer to eat more vegetables than fruit.
The best thing about Daily Harvest is it feels like you have a personal chef cooking delicious and nutritious food for you, every day. And there’s no “fast food guilt.”
My favorite harvest bowls include:
- Cauliflower Rice + Pesto
- Brussels Sprouts + Tahini
- Butternut Squash + Chimichurri
- Quinoa + Chipotle
- Red Lentil + Cumin
- Beet + Avocado Poke
Broccoli + Cheeze is new and I can’t wait to try it!
My favorite soups include:
- Mushroom + Miso
- Avocado + Cucumber Cool Blended Soup
- Asparagus + Cashew Blended Soup
My favorite smoothies include:
- Strawberry + Peach
- Mint + Cacao
- Apple + Greens
I honestly haven’t tried the other options – again, because the goal is – VEGETABLES! – but I’m sure they’re delicious.
The prices really aren’t bad – always cheaper than my previous go-to, the salad bar. Plus, they’re organic! I order 12 cups at a time, about 2-3 weeks per month, and they go straight into my freezer to be used as needed. The 12 cup plan is only $7.49 per cup but if you go to the 24 cup plan (you’ll need freezer space for this!) they are only $6.99 per cup.
To prepare the smoothies, I add liquid and blend, and to prepare the harvest bowls or soup bowls, I add water and heat up. These are all vegetarian options, but I will often add some turkey or chicken, if I have it on hand, or a scoop of protein powder to the smoothies – to beef them up.
Check out Daily Harvest today – and start working on eating healthier in 2019!
