Bestowed Box Giveaway!

There seems to be a cascade of new “healthy” products showing up on store shelves, but if you’re like me, you may be unaware or even skeptical of trying them.

That’s why the concept behind Bestowed is pretty interesting.

Created by nutritionist Heather Bauer, Bestowed is a monthly delivery service where members receive a box filled with 5 or more items that have been carefully selected by a team of health and diet experts. Each product is selected based on its ingredients, nutrition, and how it fits into an overall eating regimen, as well as where it’s made and the packaging it comes in. Brands cannot pay to be featured in these boxes, so you can feel good knowing that all products must meet these standards to be included.

In other words, these experts take some of the guess-work out of shopping for convenience products, and allow you to try some generous samples before committing to a full-size purchase.

Typically, I tend to stay away from buying convenience snacks, but there will inevitably be certain moments where I may need to rely on a quick, packaged food. For those situations, it’s helpful to be aware of the healthier options available! Not knowing what to expect, I was pleasantly surprised with the Bestowed box that arrived on my doorstep last month.

Not bad for one box, eh?

    my “go to” snack is toasted nori (Seaweed). i have a huge “salt tooth” and these always seem to do the trick. they are super nutritious, full of vitamins and minerals, and come in some interesting flavors. my favorite recently is Wasabi :) plus, the packs are super cheap (usually 99cents-$1.490, so that is an added bonus! i even got my 8 year old daughter hooked!

    As a college student it’s quite a trek to get to a Whole Foods or really anywhere that isn’t the campus convenience store, which has FOUR isles of candy and chips and ONE stand of fruit. This would be such a treat, bringing health right to my door and making the worthwhile sacrifices of a healthy lifestyle seem almost non-existent!

  • Isabel

    Personally, I love apples with raw almond butter

  • Acmommy

    I like the Lara bars that have just fruit & nuts, a baggie of almonds and dried apricots, or so easy clementines! :)

  • Loren

    I LOVE homemade kale chips, but they don’t travel so well, so I’ll take a Larabar when I’m on the go. I love that they contain only nuts and dried fruit!

  • bree

    I wish they didnt have soy, but love Kind Bars. I also devour pistachios.

  • Nicole

    My quick go-to snack is banana slices with almond butter smeared on them.

    I love raw cashews& pecans also try to reach for an apple or another fruit when I need a snack to recharge.

  • Anna

    If I’m on the go I love KIND bars. They have been gaining popularity so many convenience stores and gas stations have them now if you forget to plan ahead (I can almost always find them at a CVS)

  • Alexandria

    I always have protein bars in my purse! They are so convenient, yummy, and give me the boost I need to continue my day! Luna bars are my favorite! Baby carrots are a good snack too!

    I like to keep carrots and cucumbers handy at all times for snacking. It helps that we have a huge fridge at work!

  • Gina

    KIND bars. Especially the blueberry pomegranate ones! So simple and satisfying!

  • Very cool. Working on tweaking the way our family of 6 eats (cleaner/healthier) and your blog, by the way, has been a huge help in the matter!

  • KellyB

    Hi
    On the weekends I make batches of granola bars and muffins to store in the freezer for my kids and I to have quick allergy friendly snacks to throw in our bags every morning.
    thanks

  • Leslie

    That box looks awesome. Nuts and fruit are a great go to, but if I need something fast I love Two Raw Mom’s products.

  • Grace

    A cup of avocado chocolate pudding would be my snack fix. Keeps me full and satisfies my chocolate craving.

  • Aurial

    My new favorite convenience snack is Mama Chia Squeeze. It’s fruit and vegetable puree with chia seeds in a squeeze pouch so I can eat it in the car between work and school.
