LifeBox Review By Nazia – January 2019

My annual mantra at the start of the year is always new year new me, with the usual promise of losing weight or spending less etc. I don’t know about you, but I always have trouble sticking to resolutions I make so this year I have made a different promise to myself.  Instead of losing weight (I can never stick to a diet!) I have vowed to eat better. My eating habits are not terrible but with the festive season over I can certainly say I have been over indulging which is starting to take a toll on my body. I definitely feel very sluggish at the moment and it isn’t a good feeling! LifeBox is going to be my saving grace this year as this box always encourages me to put better things into my body! The boxes are always bursting full of amazing products and there are very few items I dislike (thankfully) and not only do I look forward to this box but my husband does to!

What I thought:

Each box comes beautifully packaged & sealed and contains a helpful booklet detailing what you have received, suggestions and recipes on how to use some of the items. I find this so helpful as many of the products are new to me, so it makes it so much easier to plan ahead and use as the recipes are readily available. By adding these healthy, easy to prepare recipes it’s a great way to continue the theme of this box and encouraging healthy living and healthy eating.

Bounce V Life Energy Ball – Cacao Peanut Protein Energy Ball

This ball is packed with 10g of plant protein so is perfect for pre or post exercise or simply to keep you going throughout the day. Bursting with nutritious natural ingredients and a blend of vegan proteins that tastes so amazingly good for a healthy snack! The deep rich silkiness from the cacao goes hand in hand with the crunchy texture of the peanut butter which easily pleased my growling tummy. It is the perfect size to pop in your mouth to beat those pre-lunch hunger pangs.

VEGAN |GLUTEN FREE| NO ARTIFICIAL PRESERVATIVES

Clearspring Organic Seaveg Crispies – Ginger

Made with just four simple ingredients: nori, which is grown in the clear waters off the coast of Korea, unrefined sea salt, zesty ginger and sunflower oil. I really like nori but hardly ever eat it as a snack eating but I think I shall start eating it more often! It has a great flavour, crispy and taste like the sea with a warming sensation on the tongue from the ginger which makes it exceptionally moreish.

VEGAN | GLUTEN FREE | ORGANIC | NO PRESERVATIVES | NO ADDITIVES | NON-GMO

Fit Bites Protein Ball – Orange & Cacao Nibs

Fit bites are gluten free, vegan, source of fibre, has 6 ingredients and 121 calories only! Soft and chewy with a wonderful combination of orange and cacao. I like that this protein ball is 100% natural and is low on calories. Provides a much-needed protein boost during the day or as a pre/post workout. The crunchy bitterness of the cacao balances nicely with the zesty orange which is one of my favour flavours.

VEGAN | GLUTEN FREE

Iswari Buddha’s Awakening Energy Bar – Maca & Vanilla

The Buddha’s Awakening Energy Bar Maca and Vanilla is ideal for those who want a portable and practical snack, healthy, natural and invigorating. This bar has a lovely delicate flavour and soft chewy texture. I found it really filling and really pleased it doesn’t contain any unnecessary ingredients as there are no added sugars, no palm oil, salt or chemical additives. Simply delicious!

VEGAN |GLUTEN FREE| LACTOSE FREE | ORGANIC

Health Mag365 Everyday Magnesium Supplement

Vitamins and minerals are essential to include in our diet to achieve optimum health as they have powerful properties to brilliantly boost the immune system and heal a person from the inside. One of the most important minerals that the body requires is magnesium. It helps with boosting energy levels and is also said to help with muscle pain. Out of the three flavours the exotic lemon was my favourite as it has a lovely taste similar to cloudy lemonade. Very uplifting and certainly felt like I had more energy to go about my day.

VEGAN | GLUTEN FREE

Health PrizMAG Magnesium Bisglycinate Capsules

PrizMAG is great for those who prefer capsules over powder, and it doesn’t cause bowel intolerance like some magnesium supplements. Studies show that both magnesium and glycine can each be beneficial for sleep and combined into one easy supplement. I find that they help me with sleeping – my sleep quality has improved massively which has given me more energy throughout the day and I feel less sluggishI would highly recommend these as I know first-hand that they work! They are quite big so if you struggle to swallow large capsules it’s best to take with lots of water.

VEGAN | GLUTEN FREE

Love Cocoa Chocolate Bar Maldon Sea Salt

Hand-harvested crunchy Sea Salt flakes bring out all the flavours of our organic, fair-trade 70% cacao dark chocolate from Nacional in Ecuador. The complexity of dark chocolate is enhanced by the addition of the sea salt giving this bar a melt-in-the-mouth taste! The sea salt to chocolate ratio is perfect as it doesn’t taste too salty or too bitter and is simply superb.

ORGANIC

Nairns Oat Bars – Cacao & Orange Oat Bar

Cacao & Orange Oat Bar contain 40% less sugar than the average branded fruit and cereal bars. Gluten free & baked oat flapjack bar, with cacao and orange. A gorgeous combination of bitter cacao and zesty orange and oaty goodness that goes down an absolutely treat. Enjoy alongside a cup of tea or as a post breakfast snack.

VEGAN | GLUTEN FREE | NOTHING ARTIFICIAL | NO GM

Ombar Chocolate Bar – 72% Cacao

Ombar let the magical cacao bean do its thing by using just four ingredients, so expect an exciting upfront explosion of fruity and floral notes. Plus, it’s enriched with a healthy dose of live cultures! Chocolate that is too good to be shared! Scrumptiously rich and creamy this tastes so much better than other chocolate brands but is healthier and better for you. So good it just hits the spot and was devoured very quickly!

VEGAN | GLUTEN FREE | ORGANIC

Pulsin Supershake Protein Blend – Red Berry Flavour

The ‘Immunity’ Supershake is a complete source of plant-based protein and Vitamin C is vital for a strong immune system. It contains over 1 billion live Bacillus Coagulans live bacteria which can improve gut health and is a daily boost of friendly bacteria. It is Vegan, Non-GM and contains no added fillers or sugar. It’s rich blend of Vitamin C and live bacteria make it a great choice to support your active immune system. Really easy and convenient to to prepare and I enjoyed the berry flavour. Great to drink for a pre or post workout session.

VEGAN | GLUTEN FREE | NON-GM

Quinola Mothergrain Indian Style Chickpea Express Organic Quinoa

A subtle blend of quinoa and chickpeas with delicate Indian spices. Quinoa has 100% more protein and 400% more fibre than long grain rice. Quinoa is a staple food in my home as it’s a lot lighter on the stomach than rice plus I’ve found it doesn’t bloat me like rice does. The quinoa is lovely with a subtle hint of spices running through it. Great as an accompaniment to a main meal or enjoy as a light lunch with some crumbled feta and dices cucumber.

VEGAN | GLUTEN FREE | ORGANIC

Taka Turmeric Organic Turmeric Tea Bags x 4

Taka Turmeric tea bags is packed with generous amounts of organic turmeric and other precious ingredients, so it’s easy to enjoy a dose of healthy sunshine every day. The teas are individually wrapped with fully recyclable envelopes and fully unbleached bags, stitched with organic cotton. They contain grated coconut to help increase curcumin adsorption, 1000mg of Indian turmeric and activated by crushed black peppercorns. These teas are amazingly full flavour and really satisfy the taste buds when you’re feeling parched! I liked all four flavours but the winner for me was definitely the rooibos and vanilla! It has an extremely refreshing and delicate flavour but isn’t overly sweet.

The Primal Pantry Raw Paleo Bar – Coconut & Macadamia

Contains just 4 raw ingredients; Coconut, Macadamias, Cashews and Dates. Made with 100 percent real food, no added colours, preservatives, additives, refined sugars, soya or vegetable oils. Lusciously sweet and sticky this paleo bar has a great coconut & nutty flavour that keeps you fuller for longer and gives you that extra boost you need throughout the day. A tastier and healthier version of a bounty bar, definitely a thumbs up for this bar!

VEGAN | GLUTEN FREE | NO PRESERVATIVES | NO ADDITIVES

M+LK Plus Mylk – Salted Honeycomb Hazelnut

Created using 100% natural, plant based, vegan, sugar free flavourings from a highly credible company based in the UK. Mylk pride themselves on having zero hidden nasties in their m+lk, they also use natural sweeteners such as agave and fruit extracts. This flavour is made with hazelnuts blended with filtered spring water and fortified with vitamin D and calcium. This drink is incredibly delicious! Definitely one of the best milk alternatives I’ve ever tasted! It has a delicious sweet flavour with the added nuttiness which pulls the whole thing together. It’s a shame this flavour is a limited edition – I could drink it all day long!

VEGAN | GLUTEN FREE | NO REFINED SUGAR
