When I was offered an opportunity to sample the October Bestowed Box, I squealed with excitement. Well, close anyway. I was really excited. I am already a Bestowed Ambassador, and I’ve reviewed Bestowed before, but the boxes are always different, and I never turn away a chance to try something different!
Bestowed is a subscription service that each month delivers 5+ amazing nutrition and lifestyle products directly to your door. They are handpicked by Bestowed’s founder, nutritionist and author Heather Bauer.
The October Bestowed Box is special. Because October is Non-GMO month, every single item in it is guaranteed Non-GMO, which is something I have been pretty passionate about.
Here is a video from Heather that explains what Bestowed’s Non-GMO Box is all about.
Each Bestowed Box come with a little booklet that explains about each product, why it is included, offers tips for use, and lets you know where to buy each product. This booklet even included a recipe!
One of the fun things about subscribing to Bestowed is that every month you get a surprise package of goodies delivered to your door that is sure to contain a variety of healthy and delicious snacks. Here is what was in the October Bestowed Box:
Unreal Peanut Butter Cups: The Double Ones. Sadly the only non-vegan item in the box. Happily, Alan was more than willing to try out the Unreal Peanut Butter Cups. His question: Where do we find them? Created by a 13 year old in an effort to make candy less “junky,” Unreal Candy contains no corn syrup, hydrogenated oils, artificial colors or flavors, or GMOs.
The Good Bean Smoky Chili and Lime Chickpea Snacks. These spicy beans are vegan and gluten free. They are great as a snack or you can toss them on a salad to add some smoky crunchiness. They come in 3 flavors, are high in fiber, and contain no unnatural ingredients.
Manitoba Harvest Health Hemp Pro 70 Plant Based Protein Supplement. I used these to add a great protein boost to my smoothies. I don’t generally worry about getting enough protein, but a post-workout smoothie that contains some healthy protein helps you recover faster. Hemp Pro 70 contains all 10 essential amino acids, is water soluble, and is easy to digest. One of my favorite items in the October Bestowed Box.
Way Better Snacks Simply Beyond Black Bean Tortilla Chips. These were my overall favorite treat this month. Made with only 7 ingredients, these chips are jam-packed with protein and omega 3s. I ate them with a little salsa and they made a crunchy delicious snack.
Fiber Love Cinnamon Raisin Bar. This baby contains 48% of your daily fibers needs. It made a great on-the-go breakfast alternative (okay, it was my second breakfast, but it was perfect!). It’s perfect to toss in your purse for “hunger emergencies.”
Nature’s Path Love Crunch Dark Chocolate Macaroon Granola. Chocolate. Coconut. Granola. What’s not to love? Of note, for every bag of Love Crunch purchased, Nature’s Path donates an equal amount to food banks across America.
Ultima Replenisher. If you’re training for endurance, you need to replenish your fuel to maintain your performance level. Ultima has left out the sugar and artificial ingredients found in most other brands, and kept the vitamins, minerals, and electrolytes.
Enjoy Life Seed and Fruit Mix. This nut-free mix is great for a snack or to toss on a salad. It is also gluten free and allergen-friendly so you can snack freely.
I am always happy to find so many plant based items in each Bestowed Box. I had my favorites this month, but I enjoyed each item that was in the box. I find it a great way to find new-to-me products and I love that you can purchase full size versions either directly from Bestowed or from the locations that they provide in the tip booklet and on their website.
If the October Bestowed Box sounds good to you, you have until October 31 to order. Not only that, you can save almost 50% off of the regular $19 price and get your first Bestowed Box for only $10 by using the code HELLOTEN103 at checkout.
