Bestowed Box:

From the time I was a little girl, I was the first in my family to open up every new snack my parents would buy from the market and sample it.  Nothing has changed except that now I’m the one doing the shopping.  So you can only imagine how excited I was to try Bestowed, the latest brainchild from nutritionist and author, Heather Bauer.  For $19.95 a month (that includes shipping), on the 15th of every month, you can receive your own box of hand-picked food products ranging from spicy tortilla chips (delish) to olive oil brushed seaweed (not only did this satisfy my salt craving but the whole container was a mere 16 calories!).  I was eager to try the  latest flavor from Balance Bar (my go-to breakfast for the past 10 years) and cash in the coupon from Dr. Praegers for a free anything I want (straight to Whole Foods!).  While themed products being delivered on a monthly basis have been around for a long time (hello fruit of the month club), this healthy twist on everyday foods feels like a revolution.
