Hi all! I am just getting over being sick. Thank goodness though since I leave for FNCE in a mere few hours! Eek, I can barely contain my excitement!
I had the opportunity to review another Bestowed box for October. If you recall from last time, I really enjoyed the goodies I received. This box was a bit different this month since it contains no GMOs.
I am sure you have heard the term before, but GMOs, genetically modified organisms, are plants or animals that have been genetically engineered with DNA from bacteria, viruses or other plants and animals. GMOs found in these foods have been linked to immune disorders, organ damage and infertility, to name a few.
Since GMOs are found often in boxed, canned, or bottled foods this month’s Bestowed box is a really great idea!
Nature’s Path Love Crunch Dark Chocolate Macaroon Granola
This granola is like crack. In the nicest of ways, of course. Both swanky fiancé and I plowed through this bag. It was delicious. But, if you take a peek..evaporated cane juice is the second ingredient. No wonder it was so good!
I think many people tend to over do granola since they view it as a health food. It can be, but remember that calorie wise, it can add up quick.
Way Better Snacks: Simply Beyond Black Bean Tortilla Chips
If you are one that loves tortilla chips (my hand is raised ), this chip is for you.
Yes, they have the typical corn incorporated but also quinoa, black beans, and flax seed. I thought the flavor was really good too! Give me some guacamole for dipping and I am good to go!
The Good Bean: Smoky Chili and Lime Chickpea Snacks
I have give a review of the Good Bean chickpea snacks on the blog before. I really enjoyed them so it was a pleasant surprise to see them in the month’s box. They provide the crunch that you might crave from a chip and the smoky chili and lime flavor is bomb.com. (Yep, I said it )
UNREAL Peanut Butter Cups: The Double Ones
I have to say that I only got a teeny bite of these peanut butter cups. Swanky fiancé gets as excited to sample these goodies and he swiped this up pretty quick. He gave it very good reviews.
If you are looking for a sweet fix, I love that these do not contain artificial ingredients, preservatives, and corn syrup. In the box, they gave the idea of passing these out for Halloween!
And they pass themselves off as your typical pb cups, don’t you think?
Enjoy Life Seed & Fruit Mix
This nut mix was very delicious! I love the additional of dried apples. I am always a huge fan of pre-portioned snacks that you can bring with you on the go.
I have gotten a chance to sample the Manitoba Harvest Hemp Pro 7 Plant Based Protein Supplement, but I plan to. I love this as an option for vegans.
FiberLove Cinnamon Raisin Bar
I am snacking on this bar as we speak. I love the fall like flavors of cinnamon and raisin and it truly does taste like a cookie.
It is not just delicious, but nutritious. It provides 12 grams of fiber and weighs in at only 130 calories-perfect for a snack!
Also included was a one-year subscription to Women’s Health! I can’t wait to sign up!
