My older sister is a juicer / healthy food eating type of girl and I always admired her dedication...and shape...but it's just not me! Those who know me, know I'm not the healthiest eater. I choose to eat what tastes good. I like potatoes, ribs, wings, BBQ sauce and OMG french fries! Things that can be found in the freezer section and other things that will have me sitting back with my pants unbuttoned, uncomfortably full, but oh so satisfied!!! Don't get me wrong, I cook. I try to incorporate healthy meals, especially now that I'm trying to lose weight, but honestly, I do not go out of my way (I want to change that). I was a little nervous when asked to sample and review Bestowed.com's box of healthy treats. But figured, this can be an exciting new beginning for me! Here's my review...
Founded by Nutritionist and Author Heather Bauer, bestowed is pretty much a food subscription service. For just $19/month, at least 5 healthy foods or food products chosen by Heather, will be delivered right to your door! I checked out the website to see what kinds of snacks were available, and was surprised by the variety of foods offered. Many products I never heard of. Organic Coconut Butter? Pumpkin Butter? Sunbutter Sunflower Seed Spread? What? Then I saw things I have tried before but healthier and from a different brand. Food with lots of fiber and all I could think was, geez...I'm already "regular", what's that going to do to me? LOL.
On my blog, I don't hold back my thoughts. I think that's why people read it. So understand that I kept my fingers crossed hoping I would get something I'll actually like so I will have good things to report about. But consider who I am (a semi-fast food junkie who blogs heavily opinionated rants and raves) and take a look at the photo above (Isn't that rabbit food?), can you guess what I was thinking when I opened that box? It was exactly what I pictured someone who is fit and can survive in the wilderness eating just berries or leaves would eat. Where's the beef? Seriously, not even a beef jerky??? (continue)
