Bestowed Box Giveaway!

There’s been quite the craze for the monthly subscription sites where people receive samples of products – everything from beauty {Birchbox, Glossy BoxBeauty Box 5} to clothes {Stitch Fix} to health food {NatureBox}. I’ve never been a huge fan, just because I typically know the brands and products I like and buy accordingly. This changed recently when I discovered Bestowed, which is a healthy, organic monthly subscription box service. All of the snacks are hand-picked by celebrity nutritionist and author Heather Bauer. I was curious to discover new healthy snack options {currently in a Justin’s and KIND bar phase} and to try out new products that I can hopefully begin buying at the store. You can find the brands and products they include in the boxes here and the boxes are only $19/month {includes shipping}.

In my first bestowed box: ips egg white crisps {in cinnamon sugar}, a gluten-free balance bar {dark chocolate coconut}, oloves {in tasty mediterranean}, artisana™ organic super food {acai berry} nut butter and a happy squeeze pouch {in acai grape and apple} and a $50 iTrain gift certificate.

Here’s what I thought: The ips egg white crisps were absolutely delicious and a great alternative to regular crackers/chips/pita bread. They crisps are jam-packed with 7g of protein and delicious with my morning coffee this past weekend. I have been trying to eat as gluten-free as possible and making small shifts, including buying and eating different granola or protein bars. The balance bar I tried was yummy and packed with 13g protein {since I don’t eat meat, this is a great protein source for me!} and 4g fiber. As someone who is pretty new to liking olives, I was hesitant about the oloves, but pleasantly surprised. The pouch was full of small, pitted green olives {and only 50 calories!}. I would most likely pack this for an afternoon snack at work or while traveling on a road trip or plane. I topped gluten-free toast with the artisana nut butter for breakfast and could definitely see myself buying this. I’m on a big toast kick these days {topped with almond butter or sliced avocados} and this acai berry nut butter is a refreshing twist on my normal almond butter routine. The organic happy squeeze pouch reminded me of applesauce, but I surprisingly enjoyed the flavor despite not liking grape. This would be perfect to throw in your bag for a quick snack while hiking. I haven’t tried one of the iTrain workouts yet, but really excited to try a few out.

The giveaway! The fun part is Bestowed is offering one Polish My Crown their own Bestowed box to try out! The box will include 5-7 snacks that you most likely haven’t tried before and almost guaranteed will enjoy. To enter to win, all you have to do is comment on this blog post or tweet to me {tagging @luckyandi and @bstowed} answering the question: “What is your favorite healthy snack?” The giveaway will be open until Monday, August 6 and is only available for US-based readers. The extra fun part is that Bestowed is offering EVERYONE a $5 discount off their order using the coupon code 5OFFBSTOWED01. Woo hoo! You will receive a delicious, healthy Bestowed box for only $14 which is a pretty awesome deal if you ask me.

Can’t wait to hear what your favorite healthy snacks/products are! Good luck!
