If you like to eat healthy, try new organic products, explore weight loss, or even sample new things you might not have otherwise tried, Bestowed offers an inexpensive yet healthy subscription box service. For just $19 a month, you'll receive a box full of different items to check out. One of the cool things about this box is that they list all of the products you found in the box on their website, so you can easily buy more of the items you tried.
My Bestowed box this month arrived with a friendly letter introducing me to the different products. Then, of course, there was a huge variety of different things to try. Pictured below you'll see what I found in the box. My husband's favorite thing was the seaweed snack. While it's not my personal favorite, my husband absolutely loves seaweed and it's one of his favorite things to eat. My kids like the hemp hearts and I love how easy they are to eat. I loved the Balance bar the most. I'm a huge fan of protein bars and am always looking for new and interesting flavors to try. Also pictured is a coupon for one free Dr. Praeger's food item! I'll hit up my local supermarket later this week to try out a product free of charge.
My box also included some oils to try and this handy chart for pairings. I love that this gives me plenty of cooking and food preparation ideas.
As a home school mom, this box offers a creative chance to talk about healthy eating, snacks, and lifestyle choices with your kids. For example, you can talk about the importance of cooking your food in healthy ways, choosing foods with proper protein content, avoiding high-sugar snacks, and the importance of trying out new items even when you're unsure about them.
