Little Life Box June 2015

Little Life Box is a monthly shipment of items that help you to try out items so you can try out healthier or alternative versions of things you use or eat everyday.  You will get up to a dozen items each month and they promise to never ship you the same item twice, though you may get a different flavour of the same item.  They are a Canadian company as well so that’s nice too.  Subscriptions will run you  $19.95 a month or less with longer plans.  They offer a purely Vegan option as well.  I went with their original box since I don’t have a preference towards vegan items. I have found that these boxes are stuffed full!

The paper they use is always so pretty!  The include a post card too.  Underneath is a whole pile of stuff to explore.

Ra Energy Natural Food Energy Mix in Plain-227g $11.99

This is a shaker of a blend of five seeds.  It has hemp hearts, unhulled sesame seeds, buckwheat, flax and chia and just tastes nutty almost.  I could see myself using this on top of yogurt or salad.  I actually would probably just eat it plain out of the jar a small handful at a time. It is supposed to help you balance your blood sugar by reducing cravings and carb crashes.  I like it.  I’m surprised.

Gluten-Free Soy Sauce by Peter Piper Pepper-300mL $4.55

I had received actual peppercorns from this same company last month but am excited to try this soy sauce.  We don’t use a bunch of soy sauce in our house but it’s definitely something we always have on hand.

Natural Deodorant by Routine in Sexy Sadie-5mL $2.80ish

I’m guessing on the quantity on this one as it’s unmarked.  This is probably the most strongly scented natural deodorant I’ve received but the smell is not offensive.   I was hesitant to use these at first but found they work just fine.  The biggest issue is that you have to use your fingers to apply them, which is a bit messy.  This sample might last 3 days, so it’s pretty small.

Yogourt Coated Rice Cakes by Mrs.Crimble’s-96g $5.21

I don’t know anyone who spells yogurt that way but that’s how it is on the package so I used it.  Even spellcheck thinks it’s wrong.  Moving on….These look interesting.  They are a normal rice cake but then they have a yogurt topping on them.  It’ll add some life to rice cakes instead of putting Nutella on them negating any benefit I might have been getting.

Cacao Mint Protein Bomb by Bounce-42g $2.33

This is a chewy mix of cacao, seeds and whey formed into a soft cake.  It seems to have a bunch of benefits for most of your body but I’m just hoping it tastes okay.

Four O’Clock Teas Spring/Summer Collection Assortment-$0.24 each

I had received a different sample pack from this brand last month.  These ones can be drank either hot or cold.  I got two packs containing Pink Lemonade and Cucumber Mint and will probably go hot since I would need to add a bunch of sugar to make real iced tea that I want to drink.

Tex Mex Burger Mix by GoGo Quinoa-125g $2.67

This is a meatless burger mix made up of precooked foods you need to just add water too.  This package will make two burgers.  I’m not sure that I could get anyone in my household but me to eat a meatless burger.  I like the frozen vegetable ones you can buy so I’m willing to give these a go.

VegEssential All In One Protein by Progressive-45g $3.64

This Natural Vanilla flavoured supplement is made to be added to any beverage you want and blended in.  It looks like they used milk in the picture on the package which might be good, like a milkshake flavour maybe.  This has all the good things you need in you diet in it and they included a contest flyer so you can win your own.

Peanut Butter Clutter Mini Jimmybar!-23g $1.37

This little snack bar is made from dates, peanut butter, brown rice, peanuts, almonds and honey.  I think it sounds delicious.  It sounds like it would stop that craving for a chocolate bar or snack easily.

Facial Natural Sunscreen by Goddess Garden Organics-6mL $1.05

This is an anti-aging sunscreen made for use on your face.  It has an SPF 30 and is water resistant for 40 minutes.  My face is about the only place I regularly use sunscreen on myself so I’m happy with the sample.

Also included this month was a card reminding everyone that they have a Father’s Day box available.

June’s box had 13 samples in it.  However four of those were teabags.  The value was $36.57 which is good.  I like this box and have found a bunch of things I would never have bought that either work really well or taste good.  I tended to dismiss most products like this out of hand as not good or too tree huggerish so I’m pleasantly surprised with the items.
