Why is Daily Harvest eligible?
Daily Harvest offers a range of meal delivery options that prioritize nutrient-dense whole foods. Their offerings, like the Spinach + Shiitake Grits bowl, are composed of a variety of whole foods ingredients that provide essential nutrients like potassium and iron. Notably, their meals are generally low in calories, positioning them more as healthy snacks than meal replacements. This focus on whole foods and lower calorie content can be beneficial in a balanced diet, especially for those managing chronic diseases related to diet and nutrition.
Their plant-based milk alternative, Mylk, stands out for its simplicity and healthiness. Unlike many commercial nut milks that contain added sugars, emulsifiers, and fillers, Daily Harvest's Mylk consists of only ground almonds, water, and Himalayan sea salt, offering a healthier alternative. These ingredients bring added nutritional benefits, such as phosphorus, potassium, calcium, and magnesium from maple syrup, improved cholesterol levels from coconut, and health-promoting compounds like beta-carotene and anthocyanins from sweet potatoes.
Such dietary choices can be particularly advantageous for individuals with chronic diseases, where nutrition plays a crucial role in management and prevention. The emphasis on whole, nutrient-rich foods and natural ingredients aligns well with dietary recommendations for chronic disease management.
