February Bestowed Box

February Bestowed Box

does anyone love snacking as much as i do? i often eat mini meals throughout the day, instead of having huge meals only three times. bestowed has been a great go-to resource because i’ve been able to discover healthy snack ideas and some awesome new products. i’ve been enjoying their february box and loved the message from the founder, heather bauer, for the month: ‘find joy in healthy eating and living.’ rather than fill our bodies with not-so-awesome unhealthy food or eat bland, boring ‘healthy food’, it’s best to find healthy snacks that are made with REAL, delicious ingredients. i’ve been pleasantly surprised at how […]

On-the-go healthy snacks: January Bestowed Box

On-the-go healthy snacks: January Bestowed Box

I am always excited when I see the bright orange Bestowed box in my mailbox each month. It’s always a pleasant surprise to discover new healthy snacks, most of them being gluten-free and vegan. This particular box arrived on a day when we were STARVING so we opened it and immediately snacked on the bean and rice chips and the Cooggies cookies. Needless to say, this box was a hit. In this month’s box: Oatworks Smoothie – YUM. No other words. Beanfield’s Bean and Rice Chips – vegan and gluten-free. perfect with hummus or salsa! Cooggies Oatmeal Raisin/Double Chocolate Cookies – veggie-vased cookies {carrot, cauliflowe, broccoli}. […]

homemade juice + granola

YOU GUYS! i had last monday off for mlk day and used it as a perfect ‘catch up on life’ day. that included doing some stereotypical san francisco things like making homemade juice AND granola. i juice pretty frequently and on monday, i made two different types of juice. my roommate has been on a homemade granola kick that’s insanely addicting so i decided to try it out myself. what i love about the granola is that it seriously tasted better than anything i’ve bought in the store, plus has WAY less sugar. one reason i love juicing so much is because i can drink […]

Eat healthy! Bestowed’s October Box

Eat healthy! Bestowed’s October Box

Can someone please tell me HOW October is almost over? This month flew by! A few weeks ago, I received the super special October Bestowed box and I’m finally getting around to catching up on my blog posts and sharing what was in the box! Better late than never, right? This month’s box was extra special because all of the snacks were GMO-free. GMOs, or “genetically modified organisms,” are plants or animals that have been genetically engineered with DNA from bacteria, viruses or other plants and animals. Just that sentence sounds gross to me. Unfortunately, they are found in many common snack foods and soy-based products. You’ll […]

More juice!

I’m a huge juice fan. I did my first juice cleanse almost a year ago and have been obsessed ever since. I bought a juicer almost immediately after and have been on a kick ever since. Most recently, I tried out CAN CAN Cleanse‘s 3-day cleanse. The cleanse includes two fruit juices, two green veggie juices, a nut juice, two herbal teas and a savory soup. After a long two weeks of work and personal travel, I was ready to detox my system and press the reset button. Here’s how it went! The line-up: Juice 1: Lemon Ginger Juice (lemon, cinnamon, ginger, cayenne, filtered water) Juice […]

Their September box is the best yet with EIGHT delicious healthy snacks: La Tortilla Factory White Whole Wheat Soft Wrap Minis: I don’t count calories, but 50 calories for one wrap?!

They taste like crunchy fruit chips! Pearls Black Pitted Olives to Go: I’m new to the olives game but […]
