Recently I received an email from Natalia at Bestowed box asking if I would like to receive one of their boxes to review. Heck Yeah Natalia. Who doesn’t like healthy snacks delivered to your door.


Here’s the detail on Bestowed.

Bestowed is a company created by Heather Bauer, a nutritionist and author. Each month, you get a box sent straight to your door that is packed with five or more healthy food and snack product samples for you to try. Each item is hand-picked to bring you the best of the best. Bestowed membership is $19/month or $209/year.

Oh! Did I forget to mention that Natalia also offered a box for one of my readers. 

Do you Want to WIN a Bestowed box? Well first lets check out whats in the box!


Check out that haul!


With your box you also receive a full-page sheet which includes product names, “why we love” and “two tips” for each item.  This sure does make it easy to find information on the items and how they can benefit your health. You can tell the folks over at Bestowed want you to know all about the items you’re trying. I really loved this feature. Really gives you all the information you could need.

Here’s an Item Breakdown:

Gnu Foods Hi-Fiber Minis Lovely little mini bars. They have only 70 calories, but are packed with beneficial nutrients, minerals, antioxidants. Along with “phytonutrients“.  I had to look this one up on WebMD: When you eat or drink phytonutrients, they may help prevent disease and keep your body working properly. Bestowed suggests pairing them with your morning yogurt or replacing your mid-morning snack. In the end they sure did taste good and did go well with my morning yogurt.

Oloves Hot Chilli Mama Olives When I saw these I was thrilled! I squirreled them away in my travel bag. I have a trip coming up and I wanted to save these for a snack with my lunch on the go as I travel.

Nektar Honey Crystals  Genius, just genius.  Honey crystals! Fell in love, they were so good. I added them to a cup of tea and sipped away.

Kind Healthy Grains Oats & Honey Clusters Granola does not last long in my house. We love the stuff.  I also love the Kind brand. I buy the Kind Bars all the time. So I was excited to try the granola and of course the Kind Brand did not disappoint.

iTrain ($25 Gift Card): What a great site. You register your gift card, select a workout or training plan and download it. So many options to choose from.

Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts  I use hemp seeds in my oatmeal, yogurt cups, salads, soups, and even top off my hummus with them.  They are loaded with protein and vitamins and are a great way to add essential omegas and protein in your diet.  I also bake with them and really love to just snack on them right out of the bag. I have even started using them in smoothies. Love them, Love this brand.

EBoost I’ve tried EBoost before, and I really love it. It mixes easy and has great flavor. Plus its always great to keep in your bag so anytime you need a pick me up you just add it to your water.

I have to say that the folks at Bestowed do an amazing job at selecting quality products and healthy options. I so enjoyed receiving and reviewing this box. They are a Class Act with your health in mind.
