  • I Tried Daily Harvest for a Week | Brutally Honest Daily Harvest Review

    In this video I decided to try Daily Harvest (a relatively new meal subscription service) for a week and give you my brutally honest review in case you're curious or considering a Daily Harvest subscription for your busy life. Even though all the Daily Harvest meals that I tried tasted pretty nice, I had serious issues with a couple of other things .

    What is Daily Harvest?
    Daily Harvest delivers thoughtfully sourced, chef-crafted foods to your door, all built on fruits and vegetables and ready to enjoy in minutes. Their food is 95% organic and vegan.

    I love the way you filmed this, so thoughtful and informative! It really doesn't seem worth it, I can't believe how little calories/portions they are! That pesto one and smoothie one looked delicious though!!! Loved this review girl! I've always wanted to try hellofresh though, ppl really make that one out to be great!!

    Thank you for your honest review and for mentioning Trader Joe’s. I will stick with them because I have limited money, lol

    I’ve been ordering it for a few weeks now and here is what I have learned so far: you will become an angry tyrant if you try to survive on this alone. It’s pretty much all plant based and the calorie counts are low. What I am finding to make it realistic is to eat it for breakfast and lunch during the work week but eat what I want within reason for dinner or make sure to add protein like she did to the meals, it’s just not filling. Additionally, everything just kind of has that frozen taste to it no matter what food you get, idk how to describe it but it gets old/monotonous. I do however highly recommend the oat bowls, they are all good, their ice cream is delicious, and the nibs or bites are super good.

    I’ve seen them on my Instagram ads a lot but I thought it was wayyyy too expensive also. Great honest review girl! 🥰

    I was going to order, but I saw the prices and changed my mind, I will go buy bags of frozen fruit and make my own smoothie... Thanks for the review 👍

    Thanks for your review! I'm not too worried about the price, I just need a healthy grab n go option. Its really helpful to know about the calories, ill be sure to throw in a piece of fish for work meals :)

    Thanks so much for this review!! I've heard of Daily Harvest but I've never tried it or watched any videos on it yet so this was interesting!! I totally agree with you that these weren't big enough portions or calorie counts. They look like they'd make good sides though! Lol, I also hate paying monthly fees for things so I totally see why you can't justify the cost. Great video <3

    I love daily harvest but respect your honest review clearly not paid by daily harvest. Your points are solid - keep up the good work.

    I haven't heard about Daily Harvest before. It definitely sounds like a good idea, but I don't think I would pay that much for it. Plus I get hungry a lot, and those harvest bowls don't look like they'd last me very long (especially for the price-I'd want more of a full meal).

    Haven’t heard about this either, it’s definitely a great idea for the confidence factor! But $7 is pretty expensive especially for a smoothie. Cheaper at Starbucks! All of it looks so so yummy though and it made me hungry and ready for breakfast while watching this haha 💕🙃

    Just ordered these because I find in quarantine I am wasting so much money during the second week between shopping trips for fresh produce. I sometimes have to throw away things that I didn't get to eat or went bad too quickly. Hoping to keep these in the freezer more as a quick solution between shopping trips. Probably won't order again for a while. $86 for 14 cups. $20 off first order.

    Thank you for such a thorough review! I love Daily Harvest and have been ordering it for about a month. You are right, that the value of this really depends of what someone normally spends on food. For me, I hate dirty dishes and cutting up things, so my weekly tally on meals is usually about $100. Daily Harvest is a great deal for me, because it is much healthier food than I would normally eat for the same amount of money.

    They gave me a birthday coupon yesterday, and I don't think I can justify paying this much for this little.

    I am SO glad I came across your review. I was interested in giving them a try but now I won't. I'll keep looking and maybe I can find something that will work.

    I’ve heard about them in podcasts too! They seem really good. Aside from the calories, another thing I noticed in the video is that the lunch bowl looked pretty empty. To me that looked like half a portion and not a full serving. The smoothie bowls on the other hand seemed like a perfect serving for one, so that was kinda odd.

    I’m so glad you made this! I’ve seen so many people mention these and I was always skeptical lol. Also I think seven bucks is pretty expensive too lol.

    Thanks for this video! When other youtubers are sponsored by daily harvest, I never really get a full review like this. It’s kinda concerning how these aren’t really enough to be full meals and I would be like you and add protein or extra food to supplement more nutrients. I hope they aren’t marketing these as a full meal...but I guess it would be good here and there. I also don’t spend money eating out since I love cooking and yes, I agree, these do seem expensive!!!
