 Bestowed Healthy Food Subscription Box Review - March 2014 Booklet

The booklet included comes with a letter from Heather and some recipe ideas, in addition to details about the food items selected for the box. This month, she says she wanted to focus on promoting immune-boosting foods to help you stay healthy through these last winter months!

Bestowed Healthy Food Subscription Box Review - March 2014 Tea

Stash Tea Organic Lemon Ginger Green Tea – box of 18 tea bags, value: $3.50
Coromega Omega3 Squeeze Orange – 7-day pack (8 squeeze packets), value: $4.25

Anyone who’s taken Omega 3 supplements in pill forms knows how unpleasant the fishy aftertaste can be. I actually loved these squeeze packets! They’re sweet, creamy, and very tangy. They say you can eat them right out the packet if you want to, which I did. It was tasty, but I think I want to try them in my smoothies. Also, I can vouch that there is absolutely nothing fishy about these!

Bestowed Healthy Food Subscription Box Review - March 2014 Nothin

Justin’s Honey Peanut Butter Squeeze Pack – 1 pack (.5 oz), value: $1.25
Nothin’ But Premium Snack Bar – 1 bar (2.7 oz), value: $4.50

I’ve heard a lot about this brand, Justin’s nut butters, and I was not disappointed in the slightest. This honey peanut butter was really yummy and the small, squeezable packets are absolutely perfect for keeping on hand for healthy snacks and pick me ups throughout the day! I am planning to order more.

Bestowed Healthy Food Subscription Box Review - March 2014 Reeds

Reed’s Original Ginger Chews – 1 pack of 9 chews, value: $1.50
Viglant Eats Superfood Cereal, Espresso Maca Mulberry – 1 portion (3 oz), $4.16

These ginger chews are sweet and a little spicy. They’re actually made from real ginger root. I was also really happy to see that they are free of gluten, GMO, and preservatives, and that the only ingredients in them are sugar, ginger, and tapioca starch. On the flip side, mine seemed pretty difficult to actually chew; these may be better for when you’ve got time to sit and let them dissolve.

I’m excited to try the Superfood Cereal soon; I may take it with me as a mid-shift snack at work! They’re completely designed for on-the-go or away from home because they come with a spoon in them and all you need to prepare it is cold water. Bestowed.com says that they “contain a special blend of powders (including hemp, coconut palm sugar, yacon powder, and lucuma powder) that create a milk-like substance when mixed with cold water.” I’ll probably add some almond milk when I try it, but the lengths they took when considering how to improve on-the-go snacking is impressive. These cereals are also gluten-free, non-GMO, vegan, organic, and contain no refined sugar.

Bestowed Healthy Food Subscription Box Review - March 2014 Card

In addition to the edibles, Bestowed also included an exclusive $40-off your first HelloFresh box, which delivers pre-measured, farm-fresh ingredients and recipe cards to your door so you can cook great-tasting and healthy meals. I love that they included this to promote another healthy subscription box service.

Verdict: I really appreciated the curation of the box this month. Most of the items were gluten-free, organic, vegan, non-GMO, or all of the above! The focus on boosting immune systems is thoughtful and perfect for this time of year when everyone is dealing with these last rounds of winter illnesses. The cost of the box is $19 and I received just over that much in value of products.

What did you think of the March Bestowed box? Have you tried any of these items before?
