Helloooooo out there! It has been FAR too long since I have blogged & I hate it! I had some personal things going on & I just completely put my blog on the back burner *gives blog a hug* BUT I am back! It's a new year & I couldn't be more excited. 2012 was a great year for me but I predict 2013 being even better :)
I have some exciting vacations coming up this year so I'm scrambling to get into better shape. I've been using MyFitnessPal as always & doing Zumba which makes me feel amazing! This Conscious Box honestly couldn't of come at a better time. I've had some spare time on my hands so I've been snacking a bit & this box came with some amazing things to get myself back on track!
I've previously reviewed a Conscious Box & I was blown away by how many things came in it...this box was just as amazing. My January Conscious Box is their very first Vegan Box! I personally am not a Vegan but know quite a few people who are so I think this is such a neat idea. I was worried that since I'm not Vegan the items wouldn't appeal to me but I was very wrong!
January's Vegan Conscious Box
That card with the beautiful snowy scene is an adorable postcard!
First look opening the box!
Amazing Grass Wild Berry Flavor Drink Powder
I consider myself a kid at heart so I'm pretty sure this is right up my alley :)
Bodhichitta Botanicals Sacred Temple Lotion
The scent description is verrry intriguing.
Dr. Singha's Mustard Bath
I'm all about ridding my body of impurities & relaxing, although mustard does sound a little strange. I may try it on my feet first ;)
My husband laughs at me but I am addicted to straws, I can not take a drink of anything unless it's through a straw so we are constantly buying those plastic ones that go right in the trash, I love this idea! It'd also be great for a family since each member can have their own color!
Dale's Raw Protein Bar in Cafe Mocha with Chia Seeds
I've been hearing so many things about chia seeds & was pleased to see it was included in this, I need to do more research on the health benefits...can anyone out there fill me in on them?
I did notice that this says Keep Refrigerated, I'm unsure if they mean once opened or at all times. The latter would mean this wouldn't be the best for on the go. I love that it's high in protein!
This didn't come with a very in-depth description & instructions so I had to go to their website & it's full of Cupuacu & other Super Fruits. You are supposed to drink 1-2 ounces daily. I really like that it's not something that you have to drink ___ amount of servings throughout the day. Never heard of this before so it will be interesting to try out!
Happy Squeeze Fruit & Veggie Twist in Apple Mango Kale
I've recently become a fan of kale due to my juicing so I'm always on the look out for it in different things. I usually buy the little squeezable fruit packets from the store but have never tried this brand nor have I seen any that have veggies as well. I'm going to take this on my upcoming trip to Europe for a little mid-day snack.
People Towels On-The-Go Alternative to Paper Towels
I'm the first to admit I use waaaay too many paper towels, I feel like we are constantly buying them (along with straws, hehe) & I hate feeling like such a waster every time I throw a paper towel in the trash. This feels nice & I love the cute design on it. This will be great for drying hands in the kitchen.
Peeled Snacks Apple Clusters in Berry Crunch
I've been snacking on some apple chips the past few days & was kind of getting a bit bored of them. These combine 2 awesome things together in a crunchy little snack. I like that I could throw this in my purse but not have to worry about them being squished.
Hail Merry Choco Macaroons
These are gluten-free, vegan, made with no raw oils, & no refined sugar. The ingredients are minimal which makes me happy. I love all things coconut so I'm looking forward to trying these out after dinner
Nutiva Organic Shelled Hemp Seed
I received a small bag of hemp seed a few months ago but wasn't really sure what to do with it. This package says you can eat it out of the bag or add to smoothies. I'm not sure of the nutritional benefits of hemp seed. So anyone that can answer me about chia seeds & hemp seeds I would love to know!
Whew! So that's everything! Tons of stuff for a really great price. Conscious Boxes are $12 per month + $7.95 shipping which comes to $19.95 per month. They now offer this Vegan Box so you can choose between this or their normal (& just as amazing) box. Just click here & you can sign up for your own Vegan Box that will be delivered right to your door. This is a great way to try different items for one low price.
Have you ever tried a Conscious Box before? Are you planning on trying one?
Until next time,
