The Products: Healthy snacks and food items selected by nutritionist Heather Bauer.
This month they have gone from a little booklet to a one-sheet in an effort to reduce paper use. The flip side of Heather’s letter includes some of her tips for staying healthy while traveling.
Clean Well Disinfectant Wipes – Value $1.50
These are definitely a great item for travel, and I try to always keep a few in my purse.
Better Botanicals Coriander Balancing Cleanser – FULL SIZE Value $16
I can never have enough olive oil, and this one gets great reviews on Amazon, so I’m excited to try it. This cleanser is another win for me – it smells great and is free of parabens and phthalates.
Unburn Sunburn Relief – 2 oz Value $2
Puracyn Wound & Skin Care Solution – 1.8 oz $5
These are good to have in the first aid kit, but hopefully I won’t have to use either of them anytime soon!
Peeled Snacks AppleClusters – Value $2
Zing Double Nut Brownie Bar – Value $2.50
This Zing Double Nut Brownie Bar is my favorite discovery of the box this month. It’s dairy-free, gluten-free, lower in sugar than similar bars – plus it’s delicious! (Full disclosure – I have to avoid gluten and dairy, so I haven’t had a real brownie in years. If you can eat regular brownies you may not agree with my assessment!).
Party-Tizers Veggie Dippin’ Chips – Value $3
Purely Elizabeth Ancient Grain Oatmeal – Value $6.50
I’m eating these chips as I write this review, and they are really good! The added veggies in the ingredients is a nice touch, but I wouldn’t classify these as a healthy item.
The Ancient Grain Oatmeal is made with quinoa, hemp, flax, chia etc. It sounds super healthy, but it also includes oats, (which I avoid) so I’ll probably pass this along to my mom. (If you are looking for a gluten and oat free oatmeal alternative, I highly recommend these Quinoa Flakes).
Verdict: I paid a little less than $19 for this box (I believe I signed up with a Living Social deal), and received about $40 worth of items. There were less food items than usual in the box, but I’m OK with that this month because everything I’ve sampled so far seems to be high-quality, and I think this is a good summer travel box.
