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.
My monthly box included:
- Kind Gluten-free Oats & Honey Clusters
- Hemp Hearts
- Happy Squeeze Fruit & Veggie Twist (Strawberry Kiwi Beet flavor)
- Simply Snackin Dried Chicken Jerky
- Eboost Natural Energy packets
- Arrowhead Mills Instant Plain Oatmeal
- Nature’s Bakery Whole Wheat Raspberry Fig Bar
- Green & Black’s 70% Dark Chocolate
- $25 Gift Card to iTrain
Not bad for one box, eh?
The best part is that one of my lucky readers will win a one-month Bestowed subscription of their own!
