I am writing my Bestowed post a little late this month. I received the package a couple weeks ago in the mail:
Bestowed is a monthly delivery program of healthy living products – mainly food with some beauty and fitness thrown in. I’ve had the service since January, and I still get MEGA excited every time the package arrives!
June’s package was a good one. Inside we had…
ZICO Natural Coconut Water – Coconut Water is all the rage these days. But, *deep breath,* I’ve never even tried it! This was my first taste, and I don’t think I’m completely sold. It was a nice non-water refreshment, but I think I’m just as happy drinking the plain stuff right from the tap. 🙂
Bon’App – This item didn’t really give me anything since it was just advertising a free app. Bon’App is a app that calculates the calories and fat in food. It was recommended by Bestowed because it can calculate the nutrition in recipes you make yourself. I downloaded the app but deleted it the next day because I thought that having a calorie counter on my phone is not in line with my own healthy living strategy.
Bakery on Main Coconut Cashew True Bar – This is another of the seemingly infinite number of snack bars in the market. True Bars are low sodium, dairy free, and non-GMO certified. It was pretty sweet (almost dessert-like), and I really liked it! I’m hooked on Larabars and Kind bars though, and I don’t anticipate adding this brand into my regular rotation.
ROOTS Superfood Powder Packet – This powder packet boasts a days’ worth of vitamins and nutrients. The package came with two blueberry flavor packets – you only add and water!
We decided to try it right away
BAD. Neither of us could finish it. Maybe in a smoothie this would have been good, but I couldn’t stomach it just mixed with water.
GimMe Seaweed Cheddar Cheese Roasted Seaweed Crumbles – Like coconut water, seaweed is another recent food craze. I’m not nuts for the salty flavor, but these small crumbles were delicious mixed with salad and cottage cheese:
Herban Essentials Mini Pack – This Mini Pack of wipes are made with pure essential oils and are naturally antiseptic and antibacterial. I’m generally not too germ-conscious (but maybe I should be more), so I think remembering to use these will be the biggest trouble for me.
Artisana Organic Foods SuperFood Acai Berry Nut Butter – One of my favorite foods is peanut butter, and I’m always eager to try a new nut butter variation. This spread is a combo of cashew butter and acai berry – creamy and delicious!
And there’s the June Bestowed package!
