About Founder & Personal Chef

Danielle Harper

Cancer Survivor and Superfoods Advocate

Driven by her innate zest for life and passion for all things health, Danielle Harper founded zestbox to inspire and encourage others to live their ZEST life. 

As a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America and New York’s premier personal chef for over 15 years, Chef Danielle focuses on the true purpose of food—helping you to thrive. 

What's Inside?

We believe in fuel for the body and the soul, so every zestbox is filled with snacks, on-the-go meals, and ingredients to keep you healthy and moving.

We also include items designed to motivate and inspire you so you're not just living... you're thriving!


A Cause Close To Her Heart  

At 4 months old, Chef Danielle’s nephew was diagnosed with stage 4 Neuroblastoma. 

On a mission to raise money for research, specifically Neuroblastoma, zestbox donates 2% of its profits to the Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation, a pediatric cancer charity striving to develop treatments for childhood cancer.


Just Keep Swimming 

As a cancer survivor, Chef Danielle works to share her message that life is too short and to enjoy every moment.   

“My purpose with zestbox is to not only inspire you to eat well, it is to live well. To motivate you to live in the moment and to find your purpose. And in the middle…

to “Just Keep Swimming (JKS)!”

She created zestbox to help you spend less time finding healthy on-the-go foods and more time enjoying them so you can eat smart and feel awesome about your health.
