Spring Health & Wellness Box Review

This post is sponsored by BabbleBoxx, I did receive payment & product for this review, but as always opinions are my own.

I’m super excited to share with you all this awesome Spring Health & Wellness box that I got from BabbleBoxx.

I love getting subscription boxes so when I had the opportunity to work with my friends at BabbleBoxx to review this box, I knew it was going to be awesome. So let’s dive right in…

What’s inside?

2 bottles of Power Dressing from Healthy Choice
Solar Red Aeropex from Aftershokz
Ignite Your Light Book from Running Press
Compression Socks from No Nonsense
Suunto 7 Watch from Suunto
LiftActiv Peptide-C Sunscreen from Vichy
Apple Cider Vinegar Gummies from Nature’s Truth
Simply Collagen from Pink Products

Pretty awesome group of products don’t you think?

Now let’s get a bit more info for you on all the products in here.

First up the Power Dressing from Healthy Choice.

While I don’t eat a ton of salad, I always try to have salad dressing on hand because I actually really like to add it to grain bowls. These Power Dressings are pretty amazing, salad dressings made with real veggies, no artificial flavors & no soy. They are all under 45 calories each.

I got the Greener Goddess & the Creamy Italian to try out. I requested to not get the Ranch since it’s the only one of the 4 flavors that is not vegan.

The taste is really good & I’m always on board with any food that includes more veggies.

Next up are the Solar Red Aeropex from Aftershokz.

I’ve got a few pairs of Aftershokz in my collection and they are a big hit with runners because they use bone conduction technology so that they aren’t actually in your ears, but rather sitting on the bone outside of your ear so you can still hear outside sounds. You can read a review I did on one of the other versions here.

The Aeropex have a lightweight frame, 8 hour battery life & are sweat & waterproof although not recommend for swimming.

They are doing 15% off through 5/15/2020 at their website.

And since I am an ambassador for another headphone brand, I’m super excited to share that I will be giving these away to one lucky reader!! Keep reading to find out what you need to do to win!

Ignite Your Life by Jolene Hart book has been an awesome Self-Care resource for me as of late.

Self Care is something I have been sorely missing with all the travel we have done in the last little bit.

I’ve been working hard to rid my life of the negative energy that comes with anxiety & Ignite Your Light shares tips to live a more positive light.

Compression Socks from No Nonsense

When I think of No Nonsense, I think of panty hose but it’s only natural that they would branch into socks too!

I was sent 2 styles, no show & crew both of which have graduated compression in them. I’ve been wearing them when I get up in the morning because it’s always so cold in our house! And I love them for riding my new bike – I’m definitely more of a no show girl ;).

Both styles are made in the US, which is really cool and you can find them at Rite Aid.

Next up, I was sooooo excited to finally get the opportunity to try out a Suunto watch.

The Suunto 7 is a smartwatch that has features from Wear OS by Google.  I will say there are so many features on this watch it’s a little intimidating, lol. I was expecting something slightly different than what it actually is.

As a runner, I’m looking for things like athletic capability & there are over 70 sport modes available, along with GPS, wrist heart rate & you can sync to Strava. The battery life though for long distance running though is not great. Because of all the Wear OS features, like seeing calls, messages, google pay & assistant, the battery does wear out easily and battery life is discussed on Suunto’s website.

While I won’t be trading in my normal running watch, the Suunto 7 is a great everyday watch and perfect if you are looking for more of a Smartwatch that you can use for everyday. The Google Pay feature is really awesome and I look forward to trying that out down the road. And I love how sleek it looks on. It really makes me want to try one of Suunto’s more run specific watches.

LiftActiv Peptide-C Sunscreen from Vichy

Vichy has created a product that is not just an SPF but is also an anti-aging daily moisturizer that contains plant based peptides.

I’ve really jumped on the sunscreen bandwagon lately and am testing out so many different options. I love that this one has plant based peptides and is considered an anti-aging sunscreen.

Apple Cider Vinegar Gummies from Nature’s Truth

I love Apple Cider Vinegar gummies. They are so tasty and easy to use vs taking shots of actual apple cider vinegar.

The Nature’s truth version delivers 600mg of Apple Cider Vinegar per serving, they have a great natural apple flavor, no vinegar aftertaste and best of all are Vegan, Gluten Free & Non-GMO. Sean & I have been munching on these gummies every day lately!

Last but not least is the only product that I can’t actually test.

Simply Collagen from Pink Products is a grass-fed pasture raised pure Collagen Peptide power. Since I am vegan, this particular product isn’t a good fit for me but if collagen is something that you use, please check this one out and you can save 20% on all Pink products on Amazon using code 20SHAREPINK.  Pink Products do however have two Vegan products listed on their site including Be Well Cranberry cap with Vitamin C & Hibiscus & L-Theanine Calm Cap.

I’m pretty impressed by this box, the Suunto 7, the Power Dressings from Healthy Choice & the Apple Cider Vinegar Gummy from Nature’s truth are my fav products but it was a lot of fun testing everything out and sharing with you!

#GoodEats New to me Plant Based Options

This post is sponsored by BabbleBoxx.com on behalf of Conagra Brands. As always all opinions are my own.

I’ve been following a plant based/vegan diet for the last 18 months.  While I have started cooking a bit more, with all the travel we do & the summer heat (we don’t have air conditioning in our house) I tend to look for more frozen &/or super easy to make options.

That’s why I was really excited to collaborate with BabbleBoxx & Conagra Food.  They gifted me a box of “Good Eats” to test out a few new plant based products from 3 different Conagra Brands.

I know this post is about food, but even the packaging of the product I got was pretty neat.  Normally products coming in blah brown boxes, but this one was pretty cool to see on my doorstep.

Inside was a bag of Birds Eye OvenRoasters, Sheet Pan Vegatables, Gardein Nashville Hot Chick’n Tenders & a Healthy Choice Vegan & Vegetarian Power Bowl with Falafel & Tahini.  They shipped in dry ice & were in perfect condition when I got them.

There were a few additional treats like some cloth napkins, a serving platter & a little sauce container.

First thing I tried was the Healthy Choice bowl.  It was really easy to make, I just popped it in the microwave.  Healthy Choice makes 4 different Vegan & Vegetarian Power Bowls including this one with the crispy falafel & a tahini sauce.

Next up was a combo of the Birds Eye OvenRoasters sheet pan veggies.  This is a combo of pre-cut broccoli & cauliflower that is preseasoned & so easy to make.  You literally put it on a sheet pan and then cook for 25 minutes.  So easy & so good.

I saved the best for last with the Gardein Nashville Hot Chick’n Tenders.  Gardein has been a staple in my freezer for a while now & I love Nashville Hot Chick’n so I was really excited to see these in my box.  Gardein has a proprietary pea + wheat protein that they use.  There products are always vegan, non-GMO, dairy free & kosher.

I really liked these tenders, they were probably my favorite product in my Good Eats box.

It’s pretty exciting to see plant based products becoming more and more prominent.  And yes, I know just eating vegetables is easy, but it’s not always easy to get enough protein &/or fiber by just eating veggies so I’m always on the lookout for good tasting products that I can make quickly.

Want to try these products too?  You can buy them from https://shop.basketful.co/bundle?bundle=4df84c6f-583b-4a14-bfe2-7e51582890dc
