Eating healthy is so important to me. Not only is it really helping to get the last of the baby weight off after having two kids but it also makes me feel good when my body is fueled for the day with real food and not processed junk.
Ever since my son started school however, our mornings have become a bit chaotic – lots of running around packing lunches, cramming in some exercise, finding matching socks with little time left for cooking breakfast. If I want to be able to get my 3-mile run in every morning then my meal has to be speedy. This is one of the main reasons I have fallen in love with Daily Harvest. They send organic, frozen (ready when you are), healthful super foods in to-go containers to your doorstep. They make is SO easy. All recipes are nutrient-dense, vegan and gluten free and take 5 minutes max to make.
My absolute favorite so far is the Mint + Cacao Smoothie. While I’m packing my son’s lunch I just pop it in the blender with my favorite organic almond milk and that’s it! I pour it all back into the cup, add a metal straw and my breakfast is ready to have while I drive to pre-school drop off. It couldn’t be more perfect for my lifestyle.
If I have a bit more time, or if I’ve done a more intense morning workout, I’ll opt for one of their Harvest Bowls and add a fried egg or avocado. Usually though my routine is to do the Smoothies for breakfast and the Harvest Bowls for lunch – it keeps my good eating habits on track and requires no prep and minimal cleaning. Because they are frozen you can eat them when it is convenient for you and not worry about wasting uneaten food. Aside from smoothies and harvest bowls they also offer overnight oats, chia parfaits, soups, lattes, and sundaes – and everything I have tried thus far has been yummy.
