January 2018 Daily Goodie Box

Happy Thursday loves!

It has been a while since I got to do a Daily Goodie Box, so I’m glad I got the opportunity to receive my first 2018 Goodie Box!  I really liked this box  because there’s quite a bit of goodies that are great to use.

Beanitos White Bean Chips- Sweet Chili & Sour Cream: It’s high in fiber and has 6 grams  of protein in a 1.2oz package. I’m not so sure about this one, there’s an weird bean aftertaste but as for the flavor, it’s a little spicy. (A good thing!)

Raw Rev Glo-Double Chocolate Brownie Batter: It’s a bar with raw superfoods with 12 grams of protein, 14g of fiber and 4g of sugar. I have yet to try this but can’t wait till I have an early shift at work to eat this! I mean think about it: chocolate for breakfast while it’s got superfoods and healthy. 😀

Bizzy Double Shot Black Coffee: It has 130 to 150 mg of caffeine, cold brewed, ethically resourced, and BPA free. If anyone knows me, there’s a reason why this might be the best thing in this box! I’m definitely using this during one of my morning shifts at work!

* Herbal Zap-Ancient Ayurvedic Herbal Blend for Immune Support: It is an instantly dissolving herbal supplement which has 14 concentrated Ayurvedic herbal extracts. I don’t usually open products before I take pictures, but this was an emergency! I got back to work (after being off for 2 months) everyone was sick! No way am I getting sick in the beginning of the year. Anyways, I digress. It had a peppery and spicy taste to it.

EBOOST-Spruce Energizing Whole Greens with a Smart Shaker v2lite: It has 3 servings of whole veggies with 6 grams of fiber and is non-gmo. This one is Green Apple Ginger. Is it just me or you do sense a theme with this box?! I love it! FUN Fact: There’s natural caffeine and antioxidants from whole coffee cherries! It’s nice to get a mini shaker that I can easily take to-go while going to work.

napz all natural short-term sleep aid: I usually feel a bit iffy about sleeping aid but from what I can see, it’s non-habit forming and it’s drug free. Ingredients include: chamomile extract, passiflora extract, lemon balm extract and hibiscus flower extract. I’m very interested to see if this works! Mind you, I’ve only used a sleep aid once in my life.

Andalou Naturals Beauty is Renewal Face Cream: It’s a probiotic and Vitamin C cream that uplifts tone and texture to a lighter, tighter, brighter looking appearance and a luminous complexion. I can’t wait to try this!

Nellie’s All Natural Wow Stick Stain Remover: Remember this? This is my second time receiving this stain remover. It’s a simple stain remover, just wet the Wow Stick and rub gently onto the stain. Then just agitate the stain under water and voila, you’re done! I just love this scent, it’s a citrusy scent.

As I finish typing this up, I realized something! New Year New You healthier goodie boxes! What do you guys think?!

Chef’d Spoon Meal Plan Review

Happy Friday loves!

Just by signing up for Chef’d emails, they sent me a Spoon University Meal Plan box. Let me tell you, I didn’t expect the box to be that big!! They sent a variety of snack and beverage products.

It’s such a great idea for college students who are away from home, you can basically just get your meals that you choose, especially for those that spend so much money on fast food. *We’ve all been there!*

Meal types: beef, pork, poultry, vegetarian, shellfish, fish and lamb! Then based on your meal options, they bring you a few different recipes to choose from. After that they also have a few other box options such as the Grab n’ Go, Snacks and/or Fruit.

With every meal kit, you’ll receive: 2 pre-portioned fresh meals, 6 Grab n’ Go Meals, 10 beverages & snacks and 5 assorted fruits.

beverages

Granola and Oatmeal: Quaker Real Medley Apple Walnut Flavor Oatmeal and Purely Elizabeth Cranberry Pecan Granola and Puffs Cereal

Popcorn and Crunches: Skinny POP Popcorn, Dark Chocolate Harry & David Moose Munch Gourmet Popcorn and Chia Crunch Coconut. 2 doses of popcorn?! I’m definitely not complaining. Chia Crunch Coconut is freeze dried coconut slices with chia seeds.

Quest Beyond Cereal Protein Bars in Cinnamon Roll, Waffle and Chocolate flavors. These would work best after a workout!

Chocolate: 2 Nib Mor all natural superfruit cacao bits “Daily Dose of Dark” and Coffee Thins, the Edible Coffee Treat Espresso. So I can actually have chocolate infused with coffee?! That sounds like heaven to me!

Fruits: Sun Maid Sour Strawberry Golden Raisins and That’s It Zesty, 2 apples + cinnamon. I grew up on Sun Maid Raisins so finding another flavor brings back so many memories! As for the fruit bar, I’ve tried it at Starbucks before and its a simple fruit bar.

Protein Bars: Clif Bar Sierra Trail Mix which has peanuts, chocolate and raisins. RXBar, a 12gram Protein bar with 3 egg whites, 4 almonds, 6 cashews, 2 dates and no B.S.

Graze NibbleBox Review and My Code

Hi loves!

I hope everyone is having a great week!

Recently, I came along a sponsored ad on Facebook about a new subscription box called Graze. Every two weeks or so, you get a box of 4 different snacks, and the great thing about it is that you can pick what you would like to try and based on those responses, they’ll figure out what to put in your box! Their options are: Try, Like, Love or Trash.

Don’t you just love the front of the box!

There’s 2 types of options:

1. Nibblebox-choose over 90 nibblits

2. CalorieCounterBox- calorie controlled snacking, over 50 snacks containing no more than 150 calories per serving.

This is actually my second box but I was too excited to try it before I could take pictures of it!

Their ranges are all over the place such as  grazes popping corn, dips and dippers, flapjacks, savory selection, wholesome treats, pure fruit, whole nuts, pure fruits, nuts and seeds, superseeds and a touch of chocolate.

This is what I received in my graze box.. 🙂
