What I thought:

This month’s box is different to the ones I usually receive, the box is slightly bigger and instead of the LifeBox logo printed on the box it now has a sleek new cardboard sleeve with the logo on. As usual the box comes beautifully packaged in polka dot tissue paper and sealed with a balance, nourish and cleanse sticker. It contains a booklet with recipes and suggestions 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 much easier to plan ahead 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.

Wilde Nuts Cacao Crunch Granola

Cacao Crunch is organic, vegan and grain free. Unlike the majority of granola out there, this is raw, which preserves the natural oils and nutrients in the ingredients. Granola is my favourite thing to eat of a morning, it keeps me full and satisfied until lunchtime, so I was looking forward to trying this brand. Full of amazing ingredients and goes really well with the rude health hazelnut drink. Deliciously crunchy seeds and nuts with chewy mulberries and coconut – a perfect combination (with no raisins!) to get you going in the morning.

Rude Health Hazelnut Drink

A refreshing alternative to milk, the rich, sweet flavour comes from roasted Italian tondo gentile hazelnuts. It has a silky texture that comes from a little rice, is unsweetened and without thickeners. Hands down a much better alternative to milk. I stopped drinking cows milk a couple of years ago due to the stomach issues I had when consumed. I can’t have soya either, so I’m thankful for the nut alternatives available on the market, this drink was enjoyed with the Wilde Nuts cacao crunch granola.  Rude Health is a brand that I am already familiar with and I enjoy all their yummy products.

Superfood Bakery Pancake Mix        

This pancake mix is made with natural organic ingredients and organic baobab powder. We absolutely love pancakes in this house so we’re very pleased to have received this item in our box! I added 3 eggs and some almond milk (to add a slightly nutty note) and lots of chopped bananas, maple syrup and a sprinkle of cinnamon – one of our favourite toppings. They came out really well, light fluffy and full of flavour with a little extra heat from the cinnamon. Simply delicious, they were delightfully devoured!

Neat Nutrition Vanilla Vegan Protein Shake

Designed to help repair and support the creation of lean muscles, this post-workout shake is made with a nutrient-rich mix of Pea and Hemp – it’s also packed with amino acids and plant proteins to support digestive health. From time to time I will drink protein shakes especially when I’m going to the gym on a regular basis. I really like the vanilla flavour and it tastes very good quality however due to it not having added nasties (such as fillers, preservatives and cheap, often synthetic ingredients, high salt and added refined sugar) it doesn’t mix as well as others I’ve had but I would 100% rather it not mix as well than be filled with unnecessary ingredients.

Pure Recharge Coco Banana Smoothie Mix

Jam packed with natures finest ingredients, selected to boost your energy and recharge your body and mind. These natural plant-based ingredients are both gluten and dairy free. Chocolate and banana is a match made in heaven and so was this smoothie. Loaded with goodness this shake was creamy, delicious and really kept me full for ages! Great for using as a pre or post workout protein boost.

One Earth Organics Green Goodness Nutrient Blend

This verdant antioxidant-rich blend is high in more than 9 different vitamins and minerals, is high in fibre (30%) and anti-oxidants. Filled with some of the most nutrient-rich foods on the planet, Green Goodness is a great source of plant protein (41%) and Omegas 3 and 6. This is the only item in the box I haven’t had a chance to try yet but I’ve heard many great things about this brand and look forward to trying out. I like that the ingredients are 100% natural and that the nutrients have a wide range of health benefits.

Tea+ Vitamin Tea Bags – Mango & Pineapple and Orange & Blueberry

A unique blend of vitamins, herbs and tea with the aim to help in your daily wellness goals when needed most. Each vitamin infused tea has been expertly blended to provide a powerfully nutritional dose of essential vitamins and functional herbs. Super teas packed full of goodness. I do enjoy a cup of herbal tea and these were fab! Both were full of flavour, very refreshing and uplifting. Great to drink any time of the day giving you that added oomph throughout the day.

Turmerlicious Instant Turmeric Latte Mixed Bundle

Turmerlicious is an instant, soothing turmeric latte made from a delicate blend of coconut, turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, a hint of black pepper and a rich cocoa powder. Based on the ancient Indian “Golden Milk” this modern take on the turmeric latte is so simple and easy to make – Just add hot water to make a delicious, soothing dairy free hot drink. Not being a latte drinker my better half had the pleasure of trying out this bundle. He was really impressed with how easy the lattes were to prepare and how much flavour was packed into each sachet. He also liked that there were 4 flavours to choose from which were warming and very aromatic.

Medterra CBD Topical Cream

A powerful combination of CBD and certified organic ingredients, Medterra CBD Topical Cream provides a rapid cooling feeling, perfect for sore muscles and joints. Fortunately for me I don’t suffer from any of these issues so I had no real need to test this item but I have kept it aside in case it’s ever needed. Being a small sample sachet I can’t get very many uses out of it but it is a good way to be introduced to new and perhaps beneficial products.

Bonanza Smooth Roasted Peanut Butter

BONANZA roast high oleic peanuts in their skin and we only add a pinch of sea salt.  NO PALM OIL, no sweeteners and no added sugars, just 100% natural peanut butter the way it should be. Who doesn’t love peanut butter? Smooth or crunchy I love both kinds. I can say I was pleasantly surprised with this, it has a great texter with the right amount of nut to oil ratio making it easy, after a quick stir, for spreading on toast. I like that it has no palm oil, I make sure to only buy peanut butter brands that contain no palm oil so I’m very happy LifeBox have added this to this month’s box.

Nutmad Activated Nuts – Walnuts Salted Maple Caramel

A healthy snack that tastes fantastic, makes you feel good, and is always on hand. These activated nuts are delicious and riddled with nutrients. These nuts contain no refined sugar, just quality Canadian maple syrup and sea salt. Wow these walnuts are so lusciously moreish! Slightly sweet slightly salty which balances out beautifully and the crunchy nut texture make this a perfect indulgent treat!

Verdict

As usual Lifebox have delivered another amazing box filled with everything I love! I think this may even be their best box so far – pancakes, smoothie, granola and peanut butter a perfect box of goodies in my opinion! I love that every month you can discover different and wonderful products and brands. The perfect box for those on a wellness and goodness journey, living a vegan lifestyle or those who have certain food intolerances. This subscription box is sure to please all and not only that it is amazing value for money as it is jam packed with so many items!
