I love new Healthy Foodie Items. I search them out, and I always score big at Trader Joe’s.

223I love coconut, but this bag of crunchy coconut takes it to a new level. It is sweet and so satisfying. It is almost impossible to share this snack.


Goat Cheese Medallions! Wow perfect for my mid day get me to lunch snack. Yep, I eat it right out of the package I love goat cheese so much.


My new favorite go to freezer snack/small meal. SO good but definitely not enough to make a full meal. Can you see my slight obsession for cheese!


Goat cheese. Yes, please. Told Ya.


Dip or Dunk? Trick question: It’s both.


Stocked up on some new Teavana Tea.


There is a tea infuser attached to the insulated tumbler, it just twists off and your on you way with a Tea break when ever you need it.


I am beyond in love with his tumbler. So cute and I love the orange color, plus its insulated which is perfect for afternoon tea at work. This mug keeps it warm for 6 hours.


My Best Friend Jody sent me these Rachael Ray cook wear pieces for my birthday this past February.


Ordered this incredible snack Greenola. Wow. This stuff is amazing, and it has my favorite ingredient Kale! I love Kale.


I found this on Open Sky and I am so glad I did. It has become my favorite go to snack. It is sold in 5 ounce packages and sold as a 3 pack so you have plenty on hand.


I am also super excited about my Tieks. I had a $50.00 coupon from a KLUTCHclub box I received last May. I have been waiting for a sale to combine with my coupon ever since, and I finally found a pair for the right price.

I went with the Navy Blue pair. So cute and comfortable.


Stocked up on my favorite GoPicnic boxes at Target. They were having huge sale.


I really love these boxes. They come in handy when I travel or for long car rides.


Finally going to try the Apple Cider Vinegar morning cocktail. I am a regular reader of Laura from Sprint2thetable and she starts her day with a morning cocktail and I really think I can benefit from starting this healthy routine.


Found this bottle of hotness at Target! Loving it.


Got these goodies at Whole Foods.

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.

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.
