Who are these people that have time for a job, social life, and actual healthy meals? With a nutrition segment on seemingly every talk show and entire networks devoted to food, it can sometimes seem like we’ve never left our mother’s house and her constant admonitions to “eat your vegetables!”

And okay, she was right. But things were a lot easier when she was feeding them to us. Being an adult requires buying these things, planning your meals for the week so they don’t go bad, and (worst of all) actually cooking them.

Everything is perfectly portioned and takes one step to prep. Like, five minutes or less kind of easy.

Setting up a plan with Daily Harvest takes about as much time as prepping one of their meals. You can pick from Sweet Potato + Wild Rice Hash harvest bowl, Cold Brew + Cacao Smoothies, Pumpkin + Chai Oat Bowls and over 65 more items, all made using organic frozen fruits and vegetables picked at their peak to lock in freshness.
