Daily Harvest

Daily Harvest

If you need superfoods super fast, then head over to Daily Harvest. They offer a variety of nutrient packed, plant based, whole food options to stock your freezer with & have ready to eat in less than 5 minutes. They’ve become my perfect grab ‘n’ go snacks / meals for when I’m in a rush and don’t have time or energy for making something from scratch.


Of course, with so many options… it’s hard to know which cups to choose!



Here are my 6 favorites

& don’t forget to use code ‘PickLori’ to get your first 3 cups FREE!!!  

Cacao + Avocado

This mix has fruits, vegetables and chocolate! The mix of ingredients is perfect to fuel a long endurance effort. My suggestion is to blend with almond milk & cold brew.

Oats + Cacao  

Tastes like oatmeal cookie dough (I like to blend it with Coconut Milk) and is great for post workouts or meal replacements due to the higher calorie count, protein & fiber content.


Mushroom + Miso

This soup is simple, rich and loaded with shroom powers (immunity, endurance, antioxidant). I pick this meal during heavy training when my body needs soothing, healing nutrients. All you have to do heat and sip or spoon, but I love to add a big scoop of buckwheat or brown rice to make it a complete meal.

Chickpea + Za’atar

This meal will show how simple & delicious plant based nutritious meals can be. All you have to do is heat and eat to enjoy a protein & fiber rich meal. I suggest pairing with fresh oranges for a pop of flavor and vitamin C.

Apple + Greens

This smoothie is light, refreshing and great for detoxing the body. When I need greens in a hurry but don’t have time to prep, I reach for this combo. It’s a great snack to help energize your day! Blend with coconut water or iced green tea for a more refreshing blend.


Ginger + Turmeric Latte

Heat and mix with almond milk for a super soothing, calming beverage. I love this before bed for a healthy snack that eases my stomach and nerves before sleeping.
