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.

Here’s what I got in my Snacks box!

Beverages: SmartWater, SmartWater Sparkling, Zico Coconut Water and Coca Cola Life with Cane Sugar and Stevia

beverages

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

granola 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.

What would you say if you could get a box full of goodies for free just for giving your honest opinion!? Well this amazing idea does exist and it’s called the Daily Goodie Box! There’s a variety of products in here ranging from snacks, home and health. I’m excited to try all of them but there’s a few that made my mouth drop. :p

*Coffee Blocks*- “a better butter coffee” A squeezable coffee block that has coffee and butter?! As if you guys didn’t know yet, I’m a coffeeholic so when I saw I was receiving this, I was ecstatic.

*Nature’s Bakery Raspberry Fig Bar*- I first heard and tried this out at last year’s Cake Expo in Los Angeles. Ever since then, it’s a snack i’ve been getting. When it first came out, I only found it at Winco, but they’ve started selling it at grocery stores.

*Gorilly Goods Coast Sweet Curry Cashew & Fruits* – I don’t know about this one since I’m not a big fan of curry but still interested in trying it out. It’s organic, raw, vegan, non-GMO, Gluten Free, and nutrient dense. By the looks of it, you could order it online on their site or at your local natural grocery store.

-may I mention the brand name and logo is amazing. You’ve got an outline of a gorilla hence the name!

*Vermont Smoke & Cure Cracked Pepper Beef & Pork Stick* – I always like trying new beef sticks, it brings back childhood memories of Slim Jims. You can find them at Whole Foods, Target and Super Target.

*Just Chill Jamaican Citrus (Calm+Focus)* – I’ve seen this a few times at Vons but never tried it. It appears to be a stress relieving and focusing sparkling calming beverage. It claims to support calm and focused mindset, helps reduce stress with Suntheanine. This drink is available at your grocery store, seems like this is an easy product to get your hand on compared to these other snacks.

*Aloha Daily Good Greens Chocolate Blend* – I’ve actually tried the original Aloha Daily Good Greens so I’m excited to see the difference between them. It’s a dietary supplement and whole food powder that energizes, provides nutrients and makes you feel great.

*XyliChew Spearmint Gum* – So it’s a gum sweetened with Birch Xylitol which is extracted from US forests. It helps balance your pH in your mouth reducing acid-producing bacteria that erodes tooth enamel. Now I’m excited to try this one out. You can purchase this at your local Sprouts and/or online stores such as Amazon, Vitacost, Herbvive just to name a few.

*Dream Water Sleep Powder* – Just the name of it, makes you wonder… lol We’ve all had those somewhat sleepless nights where you try everything and just still can’t fall asleep. It’s best to take this right after brushing your teeth and 30 minutes before going to sleep and if sleep is interrupted, then take another one. I’ll have to try this out when I’ve got to wake up for a really early shift. You can get these at your local grocery stores, some drug stores and even online.

*Jack n’ Jill Natural Toothpaste* – Wow this toothpaste is even suitable from 6 month old babies and older. It’s all natural and safe in case the kids swallow it. It’s SLS free, no fluoride, no preservatives, no added color. Xylitol is their main ingredient…Hey that was also the main ingredient for the gum! It’s an Australian company so you can only order online.

*Nellie’s All-Natural Wow Stick Stain Remover* – We all hate those random stains on your clothes right? Well wet the stained area of the fabric and rub the stick on the stained area. Agitate the stain under water and laundry away. It’s got lemongrass and sweet orange oil work with the cleansing ingredients to fight those odors caught in the stains.
