Bestowed Review – August 2013

Bestowed - August Review

I decided to get Bestowed this month after they offered a great deal where you could get the box for $10. I have subscribed in the past and enjoyed it, so I was happy to get it again. With Bestowed you'll receive healthy and delicious food, snacks, and more to try every month - all hand-picked by celebrity nutritionist and author Heather Bauer. Boxes are $19 / month.

I would like to mention that there has been some confusion as to whether they ship to Canada or not. For some reason they state on the website they only ship within the US, but they DO ship to Canada and there are no extra shipping fees.

The box was HEAVY this month! I was eager to open it up to see why.

Lundeberg Rice Chips (Santa Fe Barbecue)
$1.22

Lundeberg Rice Chips (Santa Fe Barbecue)

Gluten-free, non-GMO-certified, and perfectly portioned for a crunchy summer snack, Lundberg Family Farms’ Santa Fe Barbecue rice chips will satisfy any salt craving in a healthy way. Each single-serving bag has 26 to 27 grams of whole grains and zero artificial colorings or flavorings.

I received a bag of these in my Snackbox in a different flavour. A much healthier alternative than your regular chips.

SeaSnax - Seaweed Snacks
$1.04

SeaSnax - Seaweed Snacks

Uh no thanks! I got this awhile back and it was gross! To each their own, but you couldn’t pay me to eat this again.

Miracle Noodles - Angel Hair Noodles
$3.29

Miracle Noodles - Angel Hair Noodles

Containing zero (yes, zero!) calories, gluten-free, soy-free, and vegan, these noodles are as versatile as they are convenient. Made of a naturally water-soluble fiber called glucomannan (which can slow digestion and promote the feeling of fullness).

Another thing that doesn’t look good to me, but they're noodles they can’t be that bad right?! Add to them any sauce or recipe. I will give them a try.

Living Healthy World Flax N’ Chia Stix
$2.26 / 2 packets

Living Healthy World Flax N’ Chia Stix

Chia seeds and flax seeds are nutritional powerhouses packed with good-for-you omega-3s (ALA, a specific kind of omega-3) and other substantial nutrients that can benefit your cardiovascular and overall health.

Omega-3’s are everyone’s best friend. If you’re not into eating fish like I am, this is great way to get them in.

Mighty Leaf Sunburst Green Iced Pouch
$3.74 / 1 pouch

Mighty Leaf Sunburst Green Iced Pouch

Mighty Leaf Sunburst Green Iced Pouch

This delicious green tea is light on the caffeine, but big on taste. You’ll love sipping a chilled glass of this refreshing citrus-flavored tea during the last few days of summer! Mighty Leaf Sunburst Iced Green Tea is hand-picked in the mountains of China and packaged in eco-friendly, specially-designed tea pouches. Plus, it’s free of artificial colorings and flavors.

This has a sweet, fruity scent. One pouch makes a full 64 oz or ½ gallon of tea. Looking forward to drinking this!

Nakano Seasoned Rice Vinegar
$5.32

Nakano Seasoned Rice Vinegar

Seasoned rice vinegar is the awesome new condiment you never knew you needed! Manufactured from whole-grain rice in an all-natural, 200-year-old process, Nakano’s seasoned rice vinegar is delicious on salads or roasted veggies. It’s also gluten-free, fat-free, and contains only 20 calories per serving!

This is why the box was so heavy! It’s a full bottle. I’m really happy to get this! Rice vinegar is great to add to so many things. Stir-frys, cooked veggies, or for a tasty alternative to oil, butter or cheese.

Cascadian Farm Crunchy Oats and Honey Granola Bar
$7.49

Cascadian Farm Crunchy Oats and Honey Granola Bar

With just seven simple ingredients, this organic bar is one granola you can feel good about eating, especially since they have zero trans fat, plus 4 grams of protein. As perfect for kids’ lunchboxes as they are for a gym bag or briefcase.

First of all this is crazy expensive. I was looking for prices and they sell a box of 4 for $29.99! My son loves granola bars, so this was the first to go. They are really hard and crunchy though. He ate it, but I don’t think it was his favourite. I certainly wouldn’t buy it at that price even if he did love it.

Also included was a coupon for a free 8 oz. container of Noosa Yoghurt.

I was pleased with Bestowed this month and if my calculation is right it’s an amazing value! $38.35 not including the free yogurt coupon. I’m totally into these healthy snack boxes. I really like Bestowed which is available to people in Canada and the US. I also recommend Snackbox which is Canada only. They are offering a great deal for your first box. Please check out my review here.
