November Bestowed Box & Discount Code

Sponsored:  I was provided a Bestowed Box to review.  As always, all opinions expressed here are 100% my own.  

Yippie!  My November Bestowed Box came and I get to share with you what was in there!


Bestowed is is a monthly subscription box packed full of healthy snacks and foods chosen by nutritionist Heather Bauer.  The cost to have Bestowed delivered to your house each month is $19.  BUT if you sign up now and use the promo code "HELLOTEN105" when you checkout, you'll save $9….making your 1st month of Bestowed $10!!!  You do have to hurry.  The code expires on 11/30/13.

As always, when I opened my Bestowed box, I was NOT disappointed. So, you ask, what WAS in my box? It's almost like the November box was prepared just for me. It's packed full of products to help you kid out workout regimen into gear. I didn't need that much help. But I do love products that are geared toward working out!



I've tried Skratch before and LOVE this stuff.  It's packed full of electrolytes and makes for an excellent pre or post workout drink.  It's a light flavor that is actually made from freeze-dried fruit.  It's not one of those overpowering sugary drinks (although it does have some sugar in it - but we still need sugar!).  




Peanut butter and chocolate is my absolute favorite flavor combination of all time.  Fortunately for me, I   had the pleasure of inhaling this bar for breakfast one more.  Unfortunately for you, there are no pictures.  Oops.  But trust me, this bar is the best.  If you haven't tried Quest Bars yet, you are missing out.  This bar had 20 grams of protein, 17 grams of fiber.  They are low carb, gluten free and yummy!  



LifeIce came in two little trays and just looked cute.  I popped them in the freezer immediately and later on that night I was sharing my first tray with my little helper.  These were chocolate coconut flavored and were delicious.  Only 30 calories for the entire tray.  They are completely GMO free, gluten free and are fun to eat!  




Hummus to go?  Oh yes please!  I've been guilty of bringing the entire tub of hummus with me and eating the entire thing.  Or worse, getting sand or dirt in it and then not being able to eat it anymore.  Having a little travel hummus is genius!  And, of course, it has a great taste as well!  



These crackers are amazing!  They are a blend of quinoa, sesame seeds, and amaranth and are gluten free!  I loved pairing them up with the Wild Garden Hummus and just eating alone.  I will now be on the hunt to get some!  




I am not a fan of processed sugars.  I love pure sources of sweetener - like honey.  So when I get a few packets of these, my day is made.  I'm pretty easy to please like that.   Lately I've been loving a warm tea at night, so adding in some Nektar Honey Crystals to my tea has been the perfect addition!  



Coconut Water is a great source of potassium and electrolytes.  I'm not a huge fan of plain coconut water, but when it's paired with chocolate and it's ice cold, this stuff is amazing!   And again, blogger fail.  I drank the entire thing too quickly and never too pictures.  Darn!




Chia seeds are amazing.  But sometimes I find I put too many in.  Having a little pre measured packet from Salba helped me to not have too many little black seeds stuck in my teeth after I finish my smoothie.  Even better, Salba has a ground chia packet too….so no seeds ever!  Awesome.  Chia seeds are packed with Omega 3s - which are fantastic for you.  





Dark chocolate is delicious and is so good for you. This little piece of dark chocolate packed with ginseng is such a great idea. I find it's a perfect little treat for myself after a long day. And 1 is all I really need. Very satisfying.



Green tea is packed full of benefits - tons of antioxidants. The benefit of eating tea leaves is that it has 100x more antioxidants than the brewed version. I was not a fan of eating the leaves alone. Rather bitter. BUT adding them to my smoothie was the perfect move!



Do you purchase subscription boxes? I love the convenience of them and trying out new products. Bestowed offers one of the greatest values and best selections!

  1. I've never subscribed to any of the boxes but am always kind of jealous when people share what they got each month!

    I haven't tried any subscription boxes, they look pretty fun though. It's like a surprise present every month! That hummus on the go is a good idea!
