Healthy home meal delivery may have started with milk delivery in the 1700’s or maybe pizza delivery in the 1800’s (if you think that is healthy!?). Either way its been around for awhile and has changed throughout the years. In the 1950’s Meal on Wheels began, which is a program delivering meals to seniors. In the year 2007 healthy home meal delivery started delivering pre-made meals to homes. Nowadays, ordering can be done online, with a mobile phone app or by calling in. Currently there are over 100 healthy home meal delivery options and I’m going to review Daily Harvest here for you.
About Daily Harvest
Founded by Rachel Drori after her busy schedule prevented her from making healthy food choices. She would grab a snack of whatever was available without it having any good nutritional value. The main office is in New York but there are kitchens throughout the country. The food is organic and then frozen for delivery to homes. To get the Daily Harvest referral code click here.
Here are some interesting facts taken from the Daily Harvest website about freezing foods:
- 36% more beta carotene when frozen the day of harvest than fresh fruit picked after three days.
- Berries frozen the day of harvest retain 200% more vitamin c than fresh berries just three days after harvest.
- When frozen the day of harvest it retains 50% more antioxidants than refrigerated options three days after harvest.
Product Overview for Healthy Home Meal Delivery for Daily Harvest
I ordered the 14 item package. It was delivered on time in a large box that was insulated with ice packs. Everything was cold and packaged perfectly. It was easy to navigate the website and choose my items. There are filters to adjust for special diets but its important to note all their food is gluten free. There are many choices from smoothies, ice cream, oat bowls, chia bowls, flatbreads, healthy veggie bowls and soups. Be sure to stir the entire bowl at once to get the full flavor.
Available Items: Bites, Lattes, Flatbread, Scoops, Oats/Chia Bowls, Soup, Harvest Bowls, Smoothies
If you want to pause your subscription for any reason, you can do that in your account and start back up at any time. It’s easy to navigate the website to figure out how to change items of choice and cancel.
They have a rewards program that I think is great. Just give out your special code and you will get $25 off and so will your referral. It’s a win win. Click here for my referral code and get $25 off.

Thanks for this helpful review. I’ll try this, especially with the coupon:)
I had no idea the nutritional drop off was so significant in the first couple of days after harvest. Nor did I know that so much of the nutritional value could be retained if frozen the same day as harvesting. That makes me wonder if I should rethink how we purchase and consume fruits and vegetables?
@Glenn Thanks for visiting my blog today. It is very interesting the facts on freezing. Best wishes for good health.
Great article and we are excited to try a few meals . Nice to have a healthy option.
@Marjorie thanks for visiting my blog again. My family has enjoyed the bowls a lot. If you have any questions please let me know.
Thank you for this most interesting article. I had no idea that freezing after harvesting retains so much more of the antioxidants.
I’m going to look over the choices of what I can order.
Thank you so much and looking forward to your next article.
@Norene I’m so glad you enjoyed my article healthy home meal delivery. I’ve really been happy with all the meals. Keep me posted if you try it. Best wishes for good health.
I have always loved getting premade foods. This article reconfirmed my recent discovery of Daily Harvest and I can’t wait to try their products! Thank you for this review.
@Kay thank you for your comment and visiting my blog today.
Great post! I am going to buy today!
@Karl thanks for buying something! Please keep me posted how you like it. Best wishes for good health.
Thanks for this great review on Daily Harvest meal delivery. I’ve been tempted to try this several times and now with the great information you provided I feel it might be worth a try! I especially like the info about frozen foods!
@Lori I’m glad you enjoyed my article healthy home meal delivery. Please keep me posted how you like the products.
I am totally loving the Daily Harvest smoothies and adding the YourSuper powders to them! I like how I’m getting different ingredients/nutrients everyday with a different smoothie. When I make them at home it’s always the same stuff because I buy in bulk and don’t like going to the store often. sometimes I add additional ingredients like extra spinach, but I love the convenience and variety!?
@Lori GREAT!! I’m so glad its working out for you and you enjoy the products!
Thank you for this review
With most of the world being on lockdown having fresh food delivered at home is a must.
Does this get delivered in all countries in the world?
I am asking because I am vegan and I am always in need of such
@Thabo thank you for visiting my blog today. I’m not sure where you live but the meals are available for delivery in the US.
Excellent info on healthy home delivery meals! I was especially interested in the facts about the quality of freezing foods vs. 3 day old hand picked foods. Thank you for this informative article! I am considering trying this company.
@Cheri thanks for visiting my blog today and reading my article healthy home meal delivery. Please let me know how you like the food. Best wishes for good health.
Thanks for your very informative blog. I learned some things that I didn’t know.
@Monique best wishes for good health and I’m so glad that learned some new facts about healthy home meal delivery.
I am currently working from home so have more time for cooking. However, I spend all day on my website hoping to get it up and running so this could be useful and provide me with further free time.
Do they have a money-back guarantee?
@Catherine it is convenient and saves time in the kitchen. They do not offer refunds since its food and can’t be returned. But they do have a good customer service department that would possibly help satisfy requests for credits.
