There are no refined ingredients and everything in the cups is completely natural and devoid of any potentially harmful substances. Daily Harvest takes healthy eating seriously, which is why it has an in-house chef and an in-house nutritionist working together to create perfect combinations of equally perfect ingredients. All of the recipes they come up with are incredibly nutritious and healthy, but they are also incredibly flavorful and satisfying. Their job is to show Daily Harvest customers that food that is good for you can taste amazing and they excel at what they do.
Frozen food is something many people dread, with all the poor-quality frozen meals giving it a bad name. Daily Harvest works hard on proving that frozen food can be just as good as the fresh kind.
The ingredients used for its recipes are picked at peak maturity and flash-frozen in order to keep all the valuable nutrients inside, so none of the goodness is lost in the process. Keep in mind that the content of the cups is not meant to be defrosted. Use them fresh from the box or your freezer, so you can make the most out of their healthy content.
You can send Daily Harvest gift cards to the people you care about and allow them to pick the smoothies and soups they want to have delivered to their doorstep. A healthy, handy, instant gift practically anyone would appreciate. At least there is that! Normally I get that done in spring, but this year has been really weird and I never got around to it until this week.
Some alliums, hyacinth and tulips are coming. The moonflowers are just now getting buds. The brass thing behind the plant is a brick clip. They are also quite handy for plant vines! I think this happened because I cut them back earlier than usual after they stopped blooming. Must remember to do that next year. The bees love these, but it was really cool when I took these pictures and not a single bee was on them. There is a random catnip plant that showed up in the back garden bed and sometimes when I go out there, I will bring some leaves in for Pixie.
This is after she ate the catnip and was just rolling around the floor:. So, fresh catnip only in the warm months. Zinnias are really going now and mums are appearing everywhere. Butterflies go crazy for zinnias. Last year I had great zinnias from the seeds I bought at Select Seeds.
I already have the seeds bookmarked that I will be buying for next year. I think next year I will try the tippy pots in the shade. I think they just get too late of a start in our climate. All those little brown leaves are from the honey locust tree, which you can just see at the top of the picture.
At least for now. It pays to wait sometimes! My moon flowers are still pretty small and not ready to bloom yet. I tried something different this year and put them in the back yard. Now that cooler weather has finally moved in, I will be doing more transplanting and moving plants this weekend. Another week has gone by. So much for my goal this year to post more LOL. Othello has put out a few blooms. I have started renovating the back sunny flower bed. I need to move the taller plants into the back.
So, last weekend I got a bee in my bonnet and started moving stuff. Irises have been moved up to the front. I moved the really tall globe thistle to behind the bird bath.
I think I got a bit over zealous with moving since we had super hot and muggy temps this week and it really stressed out the globe thistles:. Another big project was digging up this mess of whatever.
I had chopped it all way down in the spring and decided the stump needed to come out. That stump has to weigh 40 pounds at least. It is soooo heavy. Thinking about a rose of Sharon bush there or maybe some small tree. Labor Day is coming up and that means getting ready for fall! I had my good camera out for shots today. These look really good still in the front and the back. It looks like some seedlings started this year. This is a miniature version, so if you have a smaller garden, it will fit in perfectly rather than the really tall ones.
I still have a critter problem out in the back yard. The woodchuck was back. He left me with this nice bare spot:. I divided up some of my irises and planted those new rhizomes I got last week. Here is my solution to keep the critters away from them:.
Always something new to see when I go out there. Everywhere you read that water helps with weight loss in many ways. While the hydrated part is true — and a good thing, the others are kind of spotty.
There is a lot of anecdotal evidence where people say it helps them, but is it really true? One study had participants drinking increasing amounts of water prior to eating at a lunch buffet to see if the water had any effect.
Turns out not so much — at least for overweight individuals. This was reporting on how much water a person consumed in a day versus the number of calories eaten.
Energy density of foods, servings of fruits or vegetables and eating patterns did not differ between the water and the no-water day in both men and women. For me, drinking water never really keeps me from eating.
Do you find any benefits from drinking 8 glasses of water a day? Or do you try to drink 8 glasses a day? John and I have been battling the crud. John started getting sick last week and was feeling terrible. I thought i was in the clear, but Sunday I started with the sore throat. Leaves and buds all nibbled off.
I started spraying with neem and some leaves are starting to sprout again. So, I planted a couple of peonies around it that i got in a clearance sale. Superman is guarding the new peonies. This was something we found attached to our fence when we moved in and i kept it for whatever reason.
