WelliBox May 2015

WelliBox is a Canadian box focusing on healthy options.  It sends you 5-10 samples per month and you can choose your category from womens, mens, 50+, or performance.  Boxes are $10 per month, less with longer plans,  and you are promised $25 worth of products.  Since I’m trying to get healthier and lose some weight I thought it would be a good idea to get a box that might help me out.

As normal for this box there is no info card and a mix of things I don’t normally buy.

Red Raspberry Ketones Vegicaps-$20.00ish for 90

I can;t find this exact brand for sale but there are plenty of others selling this same product at around that price so that’s what I’m going with.  These are a supplement that help you with weight loss by shrinking fat cells, decreasing fat absorption and increasing  thermogenesis  They are made using organic berries that are freeze dried.  There is nothing odd in the ingredient list so I’ll give them a go.

Nature’s Field Natural Omega-3 Softgels-$20.00ish for 120

Again I found many options for these but not this exact brand.  I want to take Omega-3’s but the fishy taste makes me sick, literally.  I have tried before and for some reason they make me burp and the taste then makes me throw up.  I’ll try these but I have very little hope of it being better since they are made from salmon, anchovy and sardines.  They are mercury free though which is great.

JSK Pro Protein Crunch-$4.99 156g

These are slow dry-roasted pumpkin seeds make into granola by mixing them with sesame seeds and corn syrup.  They are cut into little bite sized squares and are delicious!  I might even be able to get Bug to eat them they are so good.  Yum!!

Trachealth Chia+Superfoods-$2.08

I’ve received a different flavour of these before and have yet to try them because I’m not sure I can get past drinking chunky water.  The website promises it tastes great.  I’ll have to give them a go one of these days.

Pure Organic Chocolate Brownie Bar-$3.00

This looks delicious.  Sometimes I get to eat these but most of the time I give them to the kids as a snack.  I like that they are a slightly healthier option then the chocolate covered ones.

Promax LS Energy Bar-$3.00

This is a chocolate fudge bar.  I rarely buy these protein/energy bars because I love them and will eat five at a time if they are around. Which completely defeats the whole purpose of them.

This month has a value of $53.00, so well above the $25 they promise.  I like that I get to try out a bunch of supplements I mostly have never heard of and it gives me a chance to decide what I might need or should be taking.  I am still cautious with reading the labels since I do still breastfeed my little one and some of these things want you to discuss taking them with your doctor in that situation, but that is to be expected with any new supplements. The last few boxes have been really good and the supplements have long expiry dates making more likely I can finish them before they go bad.
