Eat healthy! Bestowed's October Box

Can someone please tell me HOW October is almost over? This month flew by! A few weeks ago, I received the super special October Bestowed box and I’m finally getting around to catching up on my blog posts and sharing what was in the box! Better late than never, right? This month’s box was extra special because all of the snacks were GMO-free. GMOs, or “genetically modified organisms,” are plants or animals that have been genetically engineered with DNA from bacteria, viruses or other plants and animals. Just that sentence sounds gross to me. Unfortunately, they are found in many common snack foods and soy-based products. You’ll often find GMOs in products that are boxed, canned or bottled.

This month’s Bestowed box was jam-packed snacks that were not only GMO-free, but healthy, tasty and easy to toss in my purse and bring with me.

In this month’s box…

UNREAL Peanut Butter Cups: “candy” founded by a 13-year-od boy looking to mix sweet treats with no junk. These have {unlike the popular Reese’s candy} no hydrogenated oils, corn syrup, GMOs or artificial colors and flavors. {originally $4.49/12 individually wrapped cups}

Enjoy Life Seed & Fruit Mix: gluten-free, non-GMO, nut-free trail mix. I LOVE trail mix, so this was an awesome alternative to skip the nuts and have a healthier version. {originally $14.16/6 pouches}

FiberLove Cinnamon Raisin Bar: 48% of your daily fiber in one 130 calorie, delicious bar. Major yum.

The Good Bean Smoky Chili & Lime Chickpea Snack: I’ve been making my own crunchy chickpeas for awhile, but these are such an easy, healthy alternative. Bonus! These come in three flavors, including Sweet Cinnamon {MUST try!} and Sea Salt. I’m currently snacking on these as I type this…{originally $16/6 pack}

Manitoba Harvest Hemp Pro 70 Plant Based Protein Supplement: a perfect post-workout recovery. I don’t love the taste of protein powders, so adding this to a smoothie or oatmeal to mask the taste and get a great an awesome protein boost. {originally $29.99 for 16 oz.}

Nature’s Path Love Crunch Dark Chocolate Macaroon Granola: zero words for the goodness of this bag. INSANELY delicious and I will definitely be purchasing this granola next time I find it in stores. There’s 13 whole grains per serving. I also love that Nature’s Path donates the equivalent amount of food to a food bank in America for every bag purchased. {$18.99/3 bags}

Ultima Replenisher: swap out your afternoon coffee with energy powder {all you have to do is mix in cold water}

Way Better Snacks Simply Beyond Black Bean Tortilla Chips: seven simple ingredients in these tortilla chips including flax, black beans and quinoa. Pairs perfectly with hummus, salsa or guacamole. Yum, yum, yum. {originally $27 for 24 1.25oz. bags}

As you can see, I received a TON of snacks for the low monthly cost. Pretty awesome considering buying some of these snacks alone would cost the same as one Bestowed box. Plus, I would have never even know about some of these products if it wasn’t for Bestowed.

The best part is that you can get your first Bestowed box for almost 50% off {$10, instead of $19}. You’ll get a huge box packed with healthy snacks for the cost of like, four coffees {or two if you live in San Francisco…}. All you have to do is use the code HELLOTEN103 at checkout. This code is active through 11/20, but if you sign up now, you’ll be receiving the super awesome November box {stay tuned for more details on that!}. For those of you who love healthy snacks, but are sick of your same old hummus and crackers routine, I highly recommend Bestowed to discover new, tasty, healthy treats. xo!
