I worried about a lot of things related to becoming a parent. Lost sleep, breastfeeding and the end of my social life all topped the list. Working full time during a pandemic at home in a one-bedroom apartment without child care? That one somehow didn’t even cross my mind!

When the coronavirus pandemic hit the U.S., I was suddenly confined to a very small space with my husband and our 5-month-old daughter, who was getting more active by the second. As the months sped by, she learned to crawl, stand up, clap and babble — and she also made the transition from drinking exclusively milk to eating real food. Between that and the fact that I had totally stopped eating at restaurants and only felt safe getting takeout once or twice a week, I felt like I was in a constant cycle of cooking and washing dishes.

As the months wore on, I knew I needed a break. Expensive, unhealthy takeout that often required more human contact than I felt comfortable with didn’t feel like a great idea, so I started searching for other options.

I’d heard good things about Daily Harvest — like how their pre-prepped plant-based meals are not only tasty and healthy, but are also ready in just minutes with minimal cleanup — and wanted to give their fruit- and veggie-based, farm-frozen food a shot. I was sent a week’s supply of Daily Harvest’s healthy prepared food to try out for myself. (If nothing else, at least I would get a break from the relentless cycle of quarantine cooking and cleanup!)

Here’s what happened.
