Reboot Wellness Booster – Value $14
Bestowed recommend uses Reboot instead of gatorade after a workout, or drinking it during traveling to avoid “that sluggish feeling.” I’m definitely curious about Reboot – I’ll have to give it a try!
Free Noosa Yogurt Coupon – Value $3
Living Healthy World Flax N’ Chia Stix (2) – Value $3
I love that these Stix are just organic flax and chia seeds. Those are my two go-to mix-ins for smoothies, so these will be perfect! I might actually save them for traveling since it will make smoothies a lot easier to do!
SeaSnax in Wasabi – Value $2
These SeaSnax are definitely “Strangely Addictive” – they are already gone!
Mighty Lead Iced Tea – Value $1
Miracle Noodle Angel Hair – Value $3.29
Nakano Seasoned Rice Vinegar – Value $2.50
I’ve heard about Miracle Noodle before, but have yet to try them. Considering they have 0 calories, they almost seem too good to be true! From Bestowed:
These noodles live up to their name; They really are miraculous! Containing zero (yes, zero!) calories, gluten-free, soy-free, and vegan, these noodles are as versatile as they are convenient. Made of a naturally water-soluble fiber called glucomannan (which can slow digestion and promote the feeling of fullness), Miracle Noodle Angel Hair Noodles are great for dieters and low-carb eaters. Even better? The noodles don’t have to be cooked, so they’re perfect as a portable meal for the office or a road trip.
I read quite a few reviews on Amazon, and it seems like the trick to making these noodles taste like real noodles is to rinse them well then boil for 2 minutes, and make a dish where the noodles will absorb the flavor.
Verdict: The August Bestowed Box was great! I paid $19 for this box and received over $30 worth of healthy food! We’ll use everything in this box, and I’m excited to give Reboot and Miracle Noodles a try! What did you think of this month’s Bestowed Box?
