My name is: Rachel Drori.
I’m known for being: founder & CEO of Daily Harvest.
I'm sharing: Daily Harvest’s Harvest Bowls.
You can find it: Starting today(!)—January 2, 2018—on DailyHarvest.com.
What makes it special is: Our new Harvest Bowls are what bland, sad, freezer aisle vegetable medleys wish they could be. They’re packed with farm-frozen vegetables and come in six savory, comfort food-y flavors inspired by global cuisines. We have things like kitchari, pesto risotto and kimchi fried rice. All the recipes are grounded in functional foods that have been used as natural medicines for centuries—and they all taste phenomenal.
Flavor aside, we designed Harvest Bowls to be multifunctional: They’re an on-the-go snack, a side dish or the base of a stir-fry or grain bowl. They’re designed to be made into whatever you choose, and we can’t wait to see what people do with them.
One thing you can’t miss is: Choosing a favorite Harvest Bowl is like picking a favorite child: I love them all equally and for different reasons. But the recipe that I’m most proud of is the Cauliflower Rice + Kimchi. Our in-house chef and product team nailed it!The spicy tang of the kimchi is perfectly balanced. For someone who’s not familiar with kimchi, it’s an approachable introduction; and for someone who knows and loves kimchi, it checks all the boxes. It’s great on its own and even better with a fried egg or seared tofu on top.
Your body will thank you because: Every ingredient we use serves a purpose: Kitchari is the “O.G.” Ayurvedic prescription for resetting and purifying your system. It’s a universal balancing agent. We also have kimchi, which is a pillar of Korean cuisine and is loaded with gut-friendly probiotics and vitamins A and C. Our Quinoa + Chipotle Harvest Bowl is a feel-good riff on a Tex-Mex burrito bowl. It’s made with mesquite, which is surprisingly high in calcium, potassium, magnesium, iron and zinc and has been shown to regulate blood sugar and boost immune function. We nerd out about every single ingredient so that our customers don’t have to, and so that Daily Harvest can become a no-brainer for someone who wants to grab a healthy meal, but isn’t able to put in the work.
This will help you be your best you this year because: The best part of Daily Harvest’s new Harvest Bowls is that they can be personalized to any daily routine: They can be enjoyed on their own as a light meal or snack, eaten as a side dish or can serve as the base of a stir-fry or grain bowl, topped with whatever protein you choose for a hearty, warming meal. That means easy prep and cleanup to move toward a more balanced and nutritious 2018. Use your newfound spare time to fully enjoy and focus on more important things in life.
