* I received a free box from Bestowed for review purposes, all opinions are my own*
If you’ve read this blog for any amount of time you know my love for monthly subscription boxes. I like the variety and adore learning about new products. Some of my current favorite must buys, I was first introduced to through a monthly subscription box. When Bestowed reached out to me to review one of their boxes. I of course knew I had to try it out!
I was impressed right off the bat by the quick shipping. Their website promises to have boxes shipped out by the 15th of the month. Mine arrived promptly. The box is an exciting orange color that just begs to be opened immediately.
Brimming with some of my favorite I was foaming at the mouth to eat these goodies.
Unfortunately for me Whole30 said NO to all of these yummy goodies.
Heart crushed. I kid you not I have been dreaming about digging into that bag of Kind granola. If you haven’t checked out iTrain yet give it a go! You can download workouts to your iphone! I have been enjoying the yoga workouts, I can pick up my mat and take it to the park to complete!
What makes Bestowed box different is each product is hand-picked by nutritionist and Author Heather Bauer!

In my Bestowed Box:
- Happy Family Happy Squeeze Smoothies
- Simply Snacking Jerky
- Kind Healthy Grains Oats & Honey Clusters
- Green and Black Dark Chocolate
- Nature’s Bakery Fig Bars

- Arrowhead Mills Oatmeal
What I liked about this box was the tips sheet that came in side of it. For each product they give you tips of how to use it. For example the Arrowhead Mills Oatmeal came with a super easy seasonal recipe. My pre-half marathon snack was a Nature’s Bakery Fig Bar, I can’t get enough of them. I actually microwaved mine for a few second to soften it up, it was like eating a warm blueberry muffin!
The Simply snacking Jerky has been calling me to eat it. I stare at it and check the ingredients list, and I can’t wait till whole30 is over to dig it. Teriyaki Dried Chicken Breast with Mangoes & Papayas how good does that sound! I’ve been seeing these all over, with my friends raving about them.
Bestowed is just $19 per month for box of monthly goodies! It’s like a surprise gift to yourself each month. Bestowed though was kind enough to offer you, my readers a $5 off code for your first box! Awesome Right?! Just use code: 5OFFBSTOWED01
