December Bestowed Box Review + A Discount Code!

As you know from my previous reviews, I'm a big fan of Bestowed Box.


It's a great way to try new foods and learn about new healthy products. Health foods can often be on the more expensive end of things, and I'm not a fan of any sort of food waste (even if the food isn't particularly expensive), so it's great to be able to try a wide variety of things without having to buy large, full-sized containers or multipacks of anything.

Bestowed Box subscriptions are a great gift for adventurous eaters, foodies, unadventurous eaters trying to expand their horizons, health nuts, and those trying to eat healthier. It's also a great gift to yourself! Receiving a fun orange box of surprise goodies every month is a great way to build in a mood booster into your life. 


It's also a great way to make progress on two resolutions - expanding your horizons (trying new things!) and the ever popular eat healthy foods one. It's a great way to get some healthy snacks into the pantry after the somewhat unbalanced holiday feasting that a lot of us do (myself included! It's okay - it's the holidays - but it shouldn't be permanent).


This also becomes true for parents, once you move out to college - they start loving you so much that home becomes one delicious Candy Land! Whodathunk.
And they're reasonably priced for all that you get (see the bottom of the post for a discount code)!

Every month, nutritionist Heather Bauer selects some great products with a theme to share with Bestowed box subscribers. 




This December, Heather got into the holiday spirit by putting together a box full of products that give back to the community in some way, whether through a popular organization (like Make-a-Wish) or a unique way. Read more about the way the individual products give back online!



My mom happy-danced when she saw the Saffron Road Thai Red Curry Simmer Sauce.



Okay. So she doesn't actually ever dance. But she was really happy! She loves these - they're healthy and make meal prep super fast and easy - just add meat and/or veggies, cook up some rice to go with the main dish, and you have an ethnic restaurant-worthy meal with better nutrition and less cost/hassle!



My 8-year-old sister loved the All-Natural Baked CHeddar Fries from Snikiddy. And parents love them just as much as kids do! While kids love the cheesy, crunchy snack for its flavor and mouthfeel, parents love that it's non-GMO, gluten free, and has 50% less fat than regular potato chips. Made of cornmeal and potato, it also packs so nutrition - including some healthy digestion-promoting fiber!




I couldn't get enough of the I Heart Keenwah Ginger Peanut Quinoa Clusters - ginger and peanut just belong together, I don't know why I haven't done it before! They're sweet, crunchy, nutty and delicious!




Same goes for the KIND Snacks Dark Chocolate Chili Almond Bar, which helped me make it through a last-minute packing debacle for my fabulous family vacation (photos to come! I love my fam-bam). 




All good stuff and great taste.



We can't wait to try the Simply Organic Mediterranean Herb Greek Yogurt Dip (just add plain yogurt!) and my mom loves that the Pacific Organic Chicken Stock is unsalted and all-natural. No additives here!




As always, you can order more of anything that you really like on Bestowed Box's website. It's so convenient, I love it.

Okay, so here's what you really want - the coupon! Enter the discount code HELLOYUM40 at checkout to get your first Bestowed box for only $10 (normally $19). This code expires on 12/31 (in just a few days!) so be sure not to dawdle in putting your order in!
