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 …
