If you’ve been thinking about trying a meal-delivery service to help with your healthy-eating efforts, you’ve probably seen a gazillion commercials for Daily Harvest.
You know… the Vegan, Plant-Based meal-delivery service that offers weekly delivery of frozen Bowls, Smoothies, Soups, Flatbreads & Snacks to your doorstep.
I’ve been using it for 3-4 months
Listen, I have NO shame when it comes to taking Smart Short Cuts (time savers that don’t sacrifice food quality or nutrition), so I’ve been using Daily Harvest for the past 3-4 months, as a supplement to my own cooking.
There are things that I DO LIKE about Daily Harvest – and some things that I DO NOT like – all of which I share with you in the Video:
VIDEO | See my 5-minute Daily-Harvest Review
Overall Taste & Portion Size:
Can be Bland + Portion Sizes are Very Scant
Many of the Harvest Bowls are VERY BLAND & not satisfying. It was like eating a bowl of bland, steamed, chopped veggies with very little flavor. Same thing with many of their Smoothies, which I found to be somewhat flavorless & bland as well, tasting more like lightly flavored “ice”.
That being said, a few of their Best-Selling Harvest Bowls, including the Broccoli + Cheese are quite good.
The portion sizes for their Harvest Bowls & Flatbreads, which one would assume are meant to be Lunch & Dinner entrees are very scant (measuring about 3/4 cup of food) falling in-between a snack and very light meal, even for women.
I’m usually left a bit hungry afterwards, and find myself reaching for something else to eat – which sort of defeats the purpose of convenience.
Men: There is NO way that a typical male will find their portions even remotely satisfying. At one point, I prepared 3 of the Broccoli + Cheese Harvest Bowls for Oliver, as a test. He was still hungry.
I do like that it’s clean, simple, Plant-Based food, BUT the portions are VERY skimpy & some dishes are Bland.

I’ve tried a LOT of other Meal Delivery Services
and I’ll review them for ya
Purple Carrot, SAKARA, South Beach Diet, Jenny Craig.….. I’ve tried them all, lol – and I’m going to be reviewing all of them for you on my YouTube Channel – so be sure to Subscribe here.
You’ll get notified the second new videos are Posted (I post new ones every week)!
IMO – certainly not worth it for men, OR if you want more than a snack or light meal.
The convenience of healthy heat & eat, means it’s nice to have a few Daily Harvest items in the freezer as a back-up when you’re pinched for time. Instead of subscribing to weekly delivery – I’ll just order a few every now and then to have as a back-up.
