August and September Bestowed

I’ve fallen a bit behind on my recounting of Bestowed boxes.

Alas, I’ve fallen a bit behind on blogging in general. Not to fear though – I am back with a vengeance. Bestowed is a monthly delivery program of healthy living products – mainly food with some beauty and fitness thrown in. Each month’s items are unique and provide a fun way to try new products without buying them myself (or having to buy a large size).

Since July’s box, I’ve neglected to tell you about my August and September goodies.

In the August package there was:

A coupon for a free Noosa yogurt:

A package of SeaSnax (roasted seaweed):

A bag of rice chips (barbeque flavor):

these were delicious!

A crunchy oats and honey granola bar:

Two flax and chia packets:

Mighty Leaf Iced Tea:

Miracle Noodles (basically low calories noodles – they were weird):

REBOOT (a supplement drink):

And rice vinegar (Bestowed recommends putting it on salads or stirfrys):

As you can see, this Bestowed package was quite large. I could tell it would be good when I felt how heavy the package was (probably from the bottle of rice vinegar). I still have yet to try the REBOOT, iced tea, or rice vinegar, but everything else (minus the noodles which were weird) was very good.

In the September package I received:

Cinnamon Crunch Somersaults (basically, just granola. I think they sell it at Starbucks or Caribou?):

A bag of popcorn (sans butter and salt):

IMG_2498

Cranberry almond thins (more or less a thin cookie):

IMG_2499

Small packs of olives (I gave these away immediately):

Hazelnut Chocolate Dairy-Free Milk:

I love dairy free milks, so this made me especially happy (sorry Noah, I know how that pains you).

A Greek Yogurt Squeeze:

Fruit snacks:

IMG_2503

VitaMelts Multivitamins:

IMG_2504
These taste good, so maybe I’ll remember to take them!

And white whole wheat tortilla wraps:

Like August, the September package was heavily packed. Bestowed, you don’t let me down again! I haven’t tried anything from the September package yet, and writing this post has made me even more excited to sample. If anything rocks my world, I’ll tell you about it later. 🙂

What do all of these places have in common?

Yes, you guessed it. Coffee. I’ve been drinking it!

IMG_2077 IMG_2054

Iced coffee to be precise. This is a bit of a crazy thing for me since I’ve always identified myself as ‘not a coffee drinker.’ I’m still not having the stuff hot, but I’ve really been enjoying a cup of iced coffee in the afternoon while working at a coffee shop. What is becoming of me?!

Parents, how are you taking this?

Any tips for not getting totally hooked? I like the coffee shop environment and a refreshing drink, but I don’t want to get to the point where I feel like I ‘need’ it. Also, it’s an expensive habit!
