What did I think of the products?

Nouri Vegan Truffles – Chocolate & Hazelnut

These treats are free from any added sugars and unnecessary artificial ingredients. These truffles are so indulgent and heavenly; chewy and rich with a gorgeous nutty taste. I really wish the pack size was bigger as they were gone within minutes! A perfect little sweet treat to appease those naughty chocolate cravings.

Macacha Organic Plant Protein Shake – Beauty Cacao

I was really attracted by the all-natural ingredients and the stylish packaging of this product. I mixed with almond milk, blueberries and nut butter to create a breakfast smoothie. The taste was delicious: vitamin-packed with a rich creamy flavour. I would really recommend it.

Black + Blum Binchotan Charcoal Filter

I try to drink as much water throughout the day as I possibly can but I don’t particularly like the taste of London tap water and I very rarely buy bottled water because of the impact plastic is having on our environment. This product was not at all as I imagined, it is very unusual in the way it looks so I was quite sceptical it would work. After leaving this for just a few hours in the fridge, the charcoal transforms the water into a crisp, refreshing drink. The longer the filter is left in, the cleaner and better the taste. Brita filter – eat your heart out! This is definitely much more cost effective because each stick lasts for at least 3 months and after this time you can use it for other purposes like using it in shoes to remove odours.

Boundless Activated Nuts & Seeds – Cayenne & Rosemary

Boundless drench their nuts and seeds in water to kick start nature’s natural germination process. To activate, a good soak removes the bitter phytic acid and protective enzymes, enabling better digestion.

These seeds and nuts are one of the best I’ve ever tasted; they’re extremely tasty with an added hint of heat from the cayenne. So delicious and the spices and flavours are just right.

Budha Teas Matcha Now – Turmeric Ginger Matcha Drink

I was a little worried about how this would taste but I had no reason to worry! I love the clean energy I receive from this wonderful product and the flavour and taste is so amazing mixed with the refreshing water. It gave me the boost of an energy drink without the lethargic comedown afterwards. Very surprised by how much I liked it! The bottle is so much more convenient than preparing it at home too as the cap contains the Matcha in a separate chamber keeping it fresh.

Pukka Mint Refresh Tea

I am a big fan of Pukka tea and I like to keep several varieties in my cupboard so that I have different ones to suit my mood. I haven’t tried this one before but since testing it is just as good as any of the other flavours. If you need refreshment, particularly in the afternoon when you need that extra lift this tea is brilliant for that. The smell alone is gorgeous; this is a comforting all-rounder tea. Contains no caffeine so also great to enjoy before bedtime.

Nuun Natural Effervescent Vitamin Supplement – Blueberry & Pomegranate

These hydration tablets have just the right amount of flavouring and a good dose of vitamins to make the water taste interesting and refreshing. It’s not sickly and powdery tasting as some effervescent tablets can be. Great to use after a tough session at the gym to keep the body rehydrated post workout.

Mindfuel Golden Glow Milk Sachet – Traditional Turmeric with Coconut & Black Pepper

Turmeric is said to have many health benefits for example it can boost your immune system and reduce joint swelling and pain. I have never tried turmeric drinks as it’s not something that appeals to me. I found the taste odd and not something I would go for again. As the name suggests, it has a strong turmeric taste so if that is your bag, you may well enjoy it.

Brave Crunchy Roasted Peas – Paprika & Chilli

These are super filling, healthy (no added sugar and high in fibre) and really quite addictive! I love the flavour; it’s like eating peanuts without the fat and so DELICIOUS! They come in a handy little pack so you can carry them in your bag to have in your moment of need.

OK Granola Vegan & Gluten Free Granola Single Serve

Jam packed full of delicious and healthy ingredients this granola is really tasty – don’t believe me? Check out my unboxing where I munched some live! I love the sweetness the coconut adds, and all the different seeds and nuts add that extra crunch. I had to pick out the raisins as I’m not a fan of those, but I would love to try more from this company.

Sweet Pea Pantry Superfood Baking Mix

This is the only item in the box that I haven’t had time to make due to time restraints (insert sad face here ☹) Flapjacks are one of my favourite treats and I am so excited to have this in my box! It is full of wholesome ingredients and looks enough easy to prepare. I look forward to baking them soon.

Nakd Breakfast Bar – Berry Delight

I am a huge fan of Nakd bars and I am working my way through all the different flavours. I love anything berry flavoured, so I was looking forward to trying this. This is by far my favourite flavour, very delicious, not too sweet and full of fruity flavour. It has all-natural ingredients so it’s a quick and convenient way to get 1 of your 5 a day, ideal when on the move or wanting a quick snack. Perfect for those moments you want something sweet but healthy.

Mara Furikake Seaweed Seasoning

The dulse seaweed in Furikake is 85% lower in sodium than table salt, and rich in fibre, iron and protein. High in iodine, a small amount of dulse daily promotes healthy thyroid function, which supports mood, metabolism and body temperature. This product is just wow! I was honestly blown way by just how much flavour this tiny packet contains! It brings an East-West flavour fusion and a nutritional boost to any meal. I added to some plain rice to add some extra flavour – something I will have to do more often as the flavour works really well with the rice!

Overall thoughts

This month’s box has been an absolute delight! Packed with so many wonderful goodies to try out and lots of products and companies that I have been introduced to so there is something for everyone’s taste! When you think of healthy snacks you wouldn’t necessarily describe them as tasty or delicious but let me assure you that LifeBox really do their research! Not only do they find you clean nutritious products, but they don’t compromise on taste which for me is very important for my love of food! You receive a minimum of 12 products each month making this box real value for your money. There are never any repeat products, so you can always expect something new each month. The accompanying LifeBox booklet is also a great addition to the box as each month you are provided with 3 recipes to make at home. I have found these invaluable as each recipe is well written and easy to follow. So, what are you waiting for? Order your LifeBox now and don’t forget to use our exclusive discount code!
