Onnit Keto Box January 2019 Review

I’ve been on a keto diet since July under my doctor’s supervision and I’ve lost 50 lbs! Of course, I gained a few pounds back over the holidays so, I’m pumped up to get back on track! This box is great because it provides healthy and delicious keto snacks that I can have on hand when hunger hits.

This box came with a detailed info card. The front of the card highlights the featured product for the month and the back provides detailed information on the other items included in the box. I also received coupons from various Onnit partners and a card for 10% off Onnit food and supplements.

Onnit Keto Box January 2019 - Joint Oil 1Onnit Keto Box January 2019 - Joint Oil 2Onnit Keto Box January 2019 - Joint Oil 3

Onnit Joint Oil – Tangerine Dream, 12 oz – Retail Value $32.95

Servings: 35 | Calories: 35 | Fat: 3g | Carbs: 2g | Protein: 0g

Contains Avocado, Fish Oil, Turmeric and Borage Oil

Since protein is a big part of a keto diet and many of the meats we consume are fatty meats containing high-levels of omega 6, it’s beneficial to eat enough omega 3 to balance those fatty acids. It’s also believed that having more omega 6 than omega 3 can lead to inflammation.

This tangerine flavored emulsified liquid fish oil is designed to support joint mobility, comfort, and health. It contains avocado, turmeric, fish oil, and borage oil. Onnit suggests taking two teaspoons a day. They also provided a recipe for an Orange Cream Shake that sounds delicious.

Super surprisingly, this oil is delicious! It tastes just like a creamsicle fresh off the ice cream truck. Drinking two teaspoons a day will be no problem at all.

Onnit Keto Box January 2019 - Aioli 1Onnit Keto Box January 2019 - Aioli 2Onnit Keto Box January 2019 - Aioli 3

Holi Aioli – Lemon Basil, 12 oz – Retail Value $12.99

Servings: 24 | Calories: 60 | Fat: 6g | Carbs: 1g | Protein: 0g

Holi Aioli is marketed as a healthy alternative to mayo and can be used as a dip, spread or sauce for a flavorful kick to any keto-friendly dish. It’s also made with organic ingredients and is vegan.

I love mayo! I use it often as part of my keto diet to make homemade spreads and dressings. I recognize that keto focuses primarily on limiting carbs but I’m also cautious to not allow my fat intake to get too high. This can happen easily using mayo which makes a  healthier alternative appealing.

The lemon basil Holi Aioli is pretty good. The taste of the basil is strong. I think it would taste great on a salad, as a veggie dip or on chicken. The only thing that’s keeping me from giving it an A+ is the texture. It’s not as thick as mayo and not as thin as a salad dressing but, it’s still good. I’m sure I’ll end up using it all.

Onnit Keto Box January 2019 - Biltong 1Onnit Keto Box January 2019 - Biltong 2Onnit Keto Box January 2019 - Biltong 3

Lehigh Original Biltong, 1 oz – Estimated Retail Value $3.90 (buy 2oz package here for $7.80)

Servings: 1 | Calories: 80 | Fat: 2g | Carbs: 0g | Protein: 14g

Biltong may look like beef jerky but they are different in the ingredients used, taste and production. Biltong is typically better tasting with thicker and higher quality cuts of beef.

Lehigh biltong is made with simple ingredients: beef, salt, black pepper, coriander and vinegar and is packed with protein. And, protein is important on any weight loss journey because it helps you feel fuller longer.

The November Onnit Keto Box introduced me to biltong and I thought it was good then but this Lehigh biltong is fantastic! It comes in a variety of flavors so I thought the original would taste plain. It was not the case at all. I really wish they would have included the full-size package.

Onnit Keto Box January 2019 - Caponata 1Onnit Keto Box January 2019 - Caponata 2Onnit Keto Box January 2019 - Caponata 3

Freshe – Sicilian Caponata, 4.25 oz – Estimated Retail Value $3.99 (buy 6 pack here for $23.99)

Servings: 1 | Calories: 110 | Fat: 5g | Carbs: 7g | Protein: 11g

Tuna has been another keto staple for me and a great source of protein and omega 3.

Freshe offers these on-the-go gourmet small meals in a variety of flavors packed in colorful BPA-free tin cans. The Sicilian Caponata contains sustainably caught wild skipjack tuna, butter squash, vegetables, almonds, and herbs.

When I opened the can, it did not look appetizing at all. However, I feel like it’s my duty to try every snack and provide my honest opinion for our awesome readers. I closed my eyes, fork in hand, and counted down: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, GO! How can something look so bad but taste so delicious? It honestly was a delight to eat and I finished the entire can right then and there. Magical!

Onnit Keto Box January 2019 - Pistachios 1Onnit Keto Box January 2019 - Pistachios 2Onnit Keto Box January 2019 - Pistachios 3

Gilded Nut – Habanero Heat, 2.25 oz – Estimated Retail Value $3.50 (buy a 6 pack for $21.00)

Servings: 1.12 | Calories: 160 | Fat: 13g | Carbs: 8g | Protein: 6g

Nuts are keto-friendly in that they are high in healthy fats and low in carbs. My love of nuts means that I tend to overeat them (driving up my daily calorie intake) so, I usually end up avoiding them altogether.

Gilded Nut offers jumbo California pistachios, cold pressed in extra virgin olive oil and coated with herbs and spices. The package contains a small portion and I figured that the spiciness and having to de-shell them would slow me down and keep me from overeating them.

These pistachios are super spicy. By the third one, I was sniffling. They’re good but the spiciness is a bit too much for me. The habanero heat is scorching!

Onnit Keto Box January 2019 - Hemp Seeds 1Onnit Keto Box January 2019 - Hemp Seeds 2Onnit Keto Box January 2019 - Hemp Seeds 3

Hemp Seeds – Smoked Jalapeno, 1.76 oz – Retail Value $2.19 (found here for $1.99)

Servings: 1 | Calories: 280 | Fat: 18g | Carbs: 16g | Protein: 13g

I’ve never had hemp seeds before. I’m surprised to see that they’re really high in calories, fat, carbs (primarily from fiber) and protein. They also have 10 grams of omega 6 and 3.5 grams of omega 3.

If I ran across this snack in the supermarket, I’d be too unsure of its keto-friendliness and would probably pass on it. After tasting the hemp seeds, that would have been a good choice!

I didn’t enjoy these at all. It was like chewing the outside of sunflower seeds. The texture was too dry to swallow. Maybe they’re not meant to be chewed? Maybe they would do better in a smoothie as a sneaky way to add in fiber? Eating them plain and straight out of the bag as a snack, I don’t recommend.

Onnit Keto Box January 2019 - Smash Pack 1

Onnit Keto Box January 2019 - Smash Pack 2

Onnit Keto Box January 2019 - Smash Pack 3

Smash Pack – Chocolate Protein Pudding, 4.27 oz – Retail Value $2.99 (buy a 6 pack here for $17.99)

Servings: 1 | Calories: 130 | Fat: 4g | Carbs: 7g | Protein: 15g

Yes, this protein pack is packed with protein but the packaging is not pleasing. It looks like something a muscle-bound man would carry in his gym bag. He’d chug it down after a tough workout while huge beads of sweat roll down his face and splatter on his tiny tank top. It’s just so masculine! It does, however, taste pretty good. It reminds me of low-fat Jello pudding but with a little extra chocolate. Not surprisingly, my husband really liked it.

The Verdict: This month’s box was packed with omegas! The joint oil, pistachios, hemp seeds, and tuna had tons of healthy fatty acids. While last month’s box was full of items to satisfy your sweet tooth, this month’s box featured spicy and savory treats flavored with habanero, smoked jalapeno, Sicilian herbs, and basil. I liked this month’s picks. With the exception of the hemp seeds, I enjoyed all the treats. The joint oil is my favorite and the biltong and tuna would tie for second place. I’ve found that the value of this box is consistently close to the cost of the box which makes me question if it’s a really great value. However, the quality and variety of the Onnit Keto boxes continue to be impressive. I think it’s worth it!

To Wrap Up:

Can you get this box if you sign up today? No. You have to order by the end of the month to get the next month’s box. If you signed up before the end of the month, you’ll receive the February box. Otherwise, your first box will be the March box.

Value Breakdown: This box costs $55.95 including shipping and has an estimated retail value of $62.51. Each of the 7 items in the box has an average cost of $7.99.

  1. This box sounds really interesting. Thanks so much for the review Shatae!

    • Thanks Ash! It was pretty cool!

  2. Oh I love hemp seeds! I have them every morning in my yogurt or mixed in with cottage cheese. This looked like such a great box!

    • It really was a great box Resa. But those hemp seeds, no way! Maybe I’ll try them again mixed in something.

      • Keto is totally not for me (I’m a vegetarian and eat high carb, low fat), but I do eat hemp seeds regularly. I put plain ones in smoothies (they have a neutral flavor on their own and blend better than chia or flax or pumpkin seeds and don’t leave little things stuck to your glass) and sometimes oatmeal. I can imagine flavored ones would not be a great snack, though.
