IMG_3888 the goodsHELLO YUM….Every month you get 5-7 items that are hand picked by Heather, the celebrity nutritionist.

IMG_3889 Whats inside
1 ~ Wild Garden Hummus Dip
$0.70 cents
I’ve gotten this in a past box before and it was SO GOOD. I packed it in my lunch for work and ate it with some yummy chips,was the perfect snack! The garlic flavor is perfect!
IMG_3892
2 ~ Crunchmaster Multi-Seed Crackers
$4.40
I’ve also gotten smaller portions of these crackers in other boxes in the past, they aren’t the most flavorful (probably becuase they are a bit TOO healthy for me haha) but I’m sure they will be great dipped in the hummus!

3 ~ Eat Green Tea – 100% Organic Edible Green Tea
$0.83 cents/serving
This is.. interesting. Eating green tea…? Sounds kind of weird, but I guess if it’s just mixed into a smoothie you really can’t go wrong by adding it in for the nutrients.

4 ~ Life Ice – Chocolate Crisp
$3.50
This is probably the coolest snack I have ever seen! You just pop the tray into the freezer and whenever you feel like having a guilt-free snack, you can pop one of these ice sensations into your mouth and savor the chocolate flavor! They have some other flavors on their website that I am also interested in trying! So unique and exciting!

5 ~ Nektar Honey Crystals
$0.36 cents/ 2 packets
I’ve gotten these in boxes before but haven’t ever used them yet, wooops. I’m sure they are good, the booklet says to mix them to make a drink or stir into things like oatmeal for a healthy alternative to a sugary topping.

6 ~ Perfect Fuel Chocolate
$1.99
This is a chocolate for endurance, made with dark chocolate and ginseng. I’ m scared this might taste too dark chocolatey, but I will give it a try as a snack in my lunch!
IMG_3898
7 ~ Quest Bar Chocolate Peanut Butter
$2.50
Bars like this are perfect for my lunches; they are super sweet but also healthy and will keep me full until dinner!
IMG_3896
8 ~ Salba Smart Chia Boost – Premium Ground & Whole Seed
$1.98/ 2 packets
IMG_3899

9 ~ Skratch Labs Exercise Hydration Mix
$3.90/ 2 packets
I got these in Pineapple and Lemon & Lime flavor! I’m excited for these yummy flavors and will for sure use these to flavor up some of my water at work!

IMG_3890

10 ~ ZICO Chocolate flavored Coconut Water
$2.10
I tried this on my lunch today… It’s definetly an interesting flavor. It almost tastes like normal chocolate milk, but then you can taste the more wateryness of it and also the slight coconut flavor. I do like this better than the straight regular coconut water though, was a great drink to try!

 4) Pure Living Paradise Tea? 
Vanilla Chaga TGRT Raw
I’m thoroughly confused about this product/brand. First off, the loose tea was all over my box because all it came in was this folded paper towel. It gives no real information except it says you can consume it or bathe in it….? I checked out their website, here, and it’s just as weird as the product itself. I’ll probably steep it to make tea and see what happens and what it tastes like, although I’m kind of scared. I’m probably just being dumb because I’m not a big tea drinker but this is really strange to me…..

All in all, I LOVED this box!

Love it!!
