Little Life Box September 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 first and second views of this box.  It’s so pretty and the included post card is a nice touch.

Stash Organic Tea-2 bags $0.23 each

We are getting to that time of year when tea is a welcome addition to an evening routine.  They sent me a Premium Green and a Cascade Mint and I like both.  I’ve had Stash teas before but this will be my first time trying their organic line.

Fourmi Bionique Gourmet Dried Fruit & Nuts-60g $2.23

This is a mix of cranberries, strawberries, cherries, blueberries, almonds, and chocolate.  It’s really tasty and has enough sweetness that you don’t want to eat all of it at once.  It has only 280 calories in the whole package but still.

Sunbutter Original Sunflower Spread-2×1.1oz. $0.41 each

They sent out  the creamy variety and while we are lucky enough to not have any allergies to deal with we also have liked the non-peanut butters we have tried.  Each one of these tubs has 2 tablespoons worth in it so that will do for a breakfast each.

Sisu Multivitamin U Cubes-2x2pc $0.42 each

Bug is getting a multivitamin a day so I’m happy to try new ones.  They sent out one that’s calcium & D3 and one that is a multivitamin.  They are naturally sweetened and coated with tapioca crystals.  I think the complaint I may get is that they are not shaped like something.

Grandma Emily Organic Granola-2x40g $0.59 each

This is a blend of oats, nuts, and coconut sweetened with agave nectar.  I eat these just straight out of the bag as a snack.  They give me the crunch I am usually looking for when I want something.

Bach Rescue Night Melts-28’s $10.25

These are a non habit forming sleep aid.  They use White Chestnut essence, which helps to switch off the mind.  I have been using some meditation to help me drift off.  I know that since I’m still nursing my little one that I won’t be using these soon but they don’t expire till next June so there should be a time eventually.

Bounce Spirulina Ginseng Kick Ball-$2.33

This is a mix of almonds, oats, and seeds.  I have tried a different flavour of these balls and it was good so I am optimistic of these.  This one is an energy boost.  Lord knows there are days I need that.

Larabar Uber Crunchy Nut Bar-$2.83

This is dark chocolate pecan with sea salt flavoured.  It is gluten free, kosher, non GMO, low sodium, and a source of fibre.  It’s sad to me to notice that I could eat that whole bag of granola from above or this one bar and get the almost same amount of calories.  It just seems wrong somehow.

Theobroma 72% Dark Chocolate Bar-10g $0.78

I do not really care for dark chocolate so this will go to Hubs.  He loves it and has a few pieces every night.  This is an organic treat and since I was not entirely paying attention Bear has ripped it open and eaten a little bite.  She apparently doesn’t care too much for it either since she spit it out and now I have a gross mess to clean up.

Land Art Liquid Vitamin D Supplement-20mL $1.32

I do take a pill form vitamin D but I’m always glad to get more.  I’m well aware my diet is lacking in a few things so I’m topping up.

I Love… Raspberry & Blackberry Bubble Bath-30mL $0.36

This smells so nice!  While the kids will probably get to use this I am going to attempt to get at least one alone bath with it.  This is available at Shopper’s Drug Mart so if we really like it, it’s simple to get more.

Mori-Nu Soft Silken Tofu-340g $1.39

There is no way my hubby will eat this so I’m going to have to sneak it into a dip maybe at Xmas or Thanksgiving.  I am not a huge fan of tofu but I will eat it occasionally.  I don’t think I’ve ever had the soft one though.

20150922_112151 20150922_112159

I don’t think I’ve ever included a picture of it before but each month there is also a tip from Bright Almond.  This month it’s about what foods are beneficial to your kids brains.

September’s  box had 16 samples in it.  However three of those were  multiple samples of the same things.  The value was $24.79.  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.
