Here at DailyBurn, we don’t just bring you the best streaming workouts and health information. We live the fit lifestyle, and love seeing how you do, too! But while the summer months were filled with non-stop action, there were plenty of indulgences as well — between cookouts, beach vacations and trips to the ice cream store.

Reality has officially set back in, and we’re ready to be Home Cook Heroes this fall. Our kitchens need some serious attention! That’s why we’re teaming up with our friends at FreshDirect to bring you tips on the best in-season foods, recipe inspiration and a possibility of scoring some sweet prizes!


You impress us every day with your dedication to working out, but now through November 5, we want to see what you can do in the kitchen. Which quick and healthy dinners, pre-packed lunches and ingenious snacks make you a #HomeCookHero? Show us what you’re making with your favorite seasonal produce. (Butternut Squash Soup or Whole Wheat Pumpkin Spice Bread anyone?)

What’s in it for you — besides some killer home-cooking kudos? You’ll have the chance to win prizes, including a year’s subscription to DailyBurn and a box of fresh produce from Fresh Direct. You may even have your photo featured on both our and Fresh Direct’s social media channels! (See terms and conditions.)

How to get in on the #HomeCookHero action:

Post a photo to Instagram, including #HomeCookHero, @FreshDirect and @DailyBurn in the caption, showing us what you’re cooking at home. Make sure your account is public so we can see it. We can’t wait to see how you’re heating things up in the kitchen!

All month long we’ll be sharing healthy tips and recipes, as well as showing off our own creations. So follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for inspiration and you could see your own photo featured!

FreshDirect will draw a winner every Tuesday so make sure to check back often! A year’s subscription to DailyBurn and a bountiful box of fresh fall produce? Now that’s a heroic combo.

Be sure to also follow FreshDirect on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to see what they’re whipping up in the kitchen with their fall favorites.

Here’s to health and home cooking!
