Sun Basket: Healthy Home Cooking Made Easy

As a working mom, I hardly ever have time to cook a healthy meal. Going to a local drive through is just so much quicker than going shopping for ingredients and cooking a full meal. At least that’s what I thought until I was introduced to Sun Basket. Sun Basket is the leading healthy meal kit delivery company that delivers pre-measured ingredients and easy-to-read recipes straight to my door! That means all I have to do is go online, pick my meals for the week, and Sun Basket does the rest! Sun Basket offers two menus which include a Classic Menu for 2-4 servings, and a Family Menu with 4+ servings. Of course I personally needed to order the Family Menu to feed my small army. This week I was amazed at the Menu options for my Family Plan. The Week of May 8th, I was offered Turkey Kebabs with Carrot-Snap Pea Salad and Lemon Couscous, Miso Ramen Bowls with Braised Tofu and Bok Choy, Two-bean Chili Mac ’n’ Cheese with Lime Yogurt, Vietnamese Steak Stir-fry with Jasmine Rice, or Sesame-crusted Chicken with Roasted New Potato Salad. I let my daughter choose our two meals for the week and she chose the Turkey Kebabs and the Sesame-crusted Chicken.

When my box arrived I was amazed at how neatly everything was packaged. Everything I needed to complete my meals were pre-measured and in the box along with the full recipes. We decided to try the Sesame-crusted Chicken first since that was my daughter’s first choice. The recipe was advertised as 4 servings, 520 Calories/Serving, and a 30 – 40 minute cook time. Along with the instructions, this meal came with nutrition facts as well as some tips to get the kids involved (toss the potatoes with oil before roasting, juice the lemon, mix the dressing, etc). Since this was my first Sun Box recipe, I must admit that I was a bit nervous of the outcome. I actually have very little cooking skills, and can barely boil an egg properly.

Much to my surprise, my completed meal looked exactly like the photo on the Sun Basket website! I was able to follow the instructions given and make a chef-worthy dish for my family! The instructions were extremely details and the pre-measured ingredients prevented me from making any mistakes! Although this was a big concern of mine, it was not the final test. My daughter, Kinsley, is extremely picky. Although she chose the recipe herself and helped prepare the meal, there was no telling whether or not she would actually eat it. *Insert long dramatic drumroll here* She ate EVERY BITE and then asked for seconds! I decided to save the recipe card so that I can recreate this recipe down the line because it was such a huge hit with everyone! Although this recipe was supposed to serve 4, we had quite a bit left over that I was able to save for my lunch the next day!PicMonkey Collage

We completed our Turkey Kebabs the next night (not pictured), and again it was a huge success. I can’t wait to see what recipes will be on the menu these next few weeks! Hopefully they will be as amazing as these first two were! My family will definitely be Sun Basket returning customers!

Graze Box

I have seen my fair share of subscription boxes, but I have never seen a HEALTHY subscription box! Instead of being filled with fattening sugary snacks, this box is filled with healthy alternatives!  Every snack in the box has a special benefit such as essential vitamins, minerals, and protein! Each snack is also boxed up in perfect portion controlled packs so I don’t have to worry about overeating.  I really love how Graze gives me the option to completely customize my box! If I don’t like a certain snack, I can simply trash it using their rating system and I will never be sent that snack again! Aside from their healthy snacks, their packaging is also super natural! Their cardboard boxes are made with 100% recyclable material, their booklets are 100% biodegradable, and their  skewers are made from untreated bamboo! This subscription box is fantastic from the inside out! In my box I received a pack of black pepper popcorn, original fruity flapjacks, sweet & spicy beet crunch, peanut butter & jelly, sesame garlic crunch, apple crumble, and peanut butter dippers. The original fruity flapjacks has to be my favorite product of the six, although all of them were huge hits. I ended up purchasing a 6 pack of the flapjacks from the Graze Box store! I can’t wait to see what I will get in my next box!

Daily Goodie Box

I have been patiently waiting for this month’s Daily Goodie Box, and it was totally worth the wait! In this month’s box I received a bag of Prince of Peace – 100% Natural Ginger Candy, two samples of Volo Vitamins – Energy Stickpacks, a pack of Kicking Horse Coffee – Kick Ass Ground Coffee, a pack of Swago – Cologne Wipes For Men, a pack of Georgia Grinders – Creamy Peanut Butter, a sample pack of Goviter – Viter Energy Mints, a sample of Andalou Naturals – Hyaluronic DMAE Lift & Firm Cream Pods, a bottle of Natralia – Eczema Body Wash & Shampoo, a pack of Tiger Balm – Pain Relieving Patch, and a pack of ONA Treats – Cookies and Bars. That is a total of 10 free samples valued at approximately $30.17. In return, I simply had to give my opinion of all of the products I received.  I actually went back and purchased quite a few full size things from this month’s box such as the Georgia Grinder’s Peanut Butter! This month it only took me about fifteen minutes to complete all of my product reviews! It is so easy and I can’t wait to see what I get next!

Degustabox: April

This month’s Degustabox was filled with new and exciting new products that I have never seen before. I recognized a few products, but for the most part it was brands that I have never had the chance to try. In this month’s box I received a bottle of Nando’s Peri-Peri sauce ($5.99/bottle), a bag of Lovely Candy ($2.49/bag), a PR Bar ($2.07/bar), Mutti Double Tomato Concentrate ($2.99/tube), a box of Steel Cut Better Oats ($3.99/box), a box of Skinny Girl Peach Bellini Green Tea ($4.99/box), a bag of Wilton candy drizzles ($1.99/bag), Bush’s Garbanzo Beans ($1.00/can), a pack of Bush’s Hummus Made Easy ($2.29/bag), a can of Wild Planet chicken breast ($4.99/can) and three bags of Chiridos ($1.49/bag). This box’s value is $37.26 which is $17.26 more than the subscription price. I absolutely LOVED the variety in this month’s box. The Steel Cut Better Oats were amazing and I’ve already added them to my regular shopping list. The Skinny Girl green tea was also beyond spectacular! I can’t wait to try the rest of my goodies! I really hope Degustabox continues to send more items like these in future boxes!

*Items in this month’s box may vary from what is seen in this post. Since not everyone owns a K-Cup machine, Degustabox is sending Zenify Steady Energy, and Instant coffee as replacements*

Kids BookCase.Club: April

This month’s Kids BookCase.Club was one of our favorites to date! I liked this month’s box because I recognized all four of the books immediately. We received a copy of Froggy Gets A Doggy by Jonathan London, a copy of The Boy and the Whale by Michael Moniz, a copy of The Hive: Buzzbee the Magician by Grosset & Dunlap and a copy of Henry Hubble’s Book of Troubles by Andy Myer. The total approximate value of the books in this month’s box is $47.00. I was most excited to see Froggy Gets A Doggy and The Boy and the Whale in this month’s box. Both of these are recognizable books and I was excited to share them with Kinsley. The Hive was right up Kinsley’s alley because we watch the cartoon all the time! I thought Henry Hubble’s Book of Troubles was a bit out of place this month simply because my daughter isn’t interested in books without photos right now. I decided to pick that one up for later.  This box has me more excited than ever to see next month’s box! I can’t wait to see if they will fill it with more classics!

*Subscriptions start at $9.99 a month, and come with at least 3 hand picked booked. Kids BookCase.Club offers boxes for newborn- 2 year olds, 2-4 year olds, and 5-6 year olds.*

Kids BookCase.Club: March

My daughter has been waiting for her book delivery for weeks, and it finally came! This month’s Kids BookCase box is absolutely adorable. We received three hand picked books which included Beep!Beep Go To Sleep by Todd Tarpley and John Rocco, Hansel & Gretel by Holly Hobbie, and Marley: The Dog Who Ate My Homework (I Can Read Level 2) by  John Grogan and Richard Cowdrey. We also received an adorable Dr.Seuss coloring worksheet.  The total approximate value of the books in this month’s box is $27.83. My daughter absolutely LOVED the Beep!Beep Go To Sleep book and I was so excited to see the Hansel & Gretel classic in the mix. We have used I Can Read books in the past, so my daughter was excited to see that one as well. As usual, these three books were very age appropriate.  Kids BookCase.Club is so perfect for my three year old little bookworm! She is already anticipating next month’s arrival.

Degustabox: March

In my opinion, this month’s Degustabox was mostly about being healthy. Usually we have a ton of snack foods which this month’s box did not have. However, I was equally as impressed with all of the healthy foods included in this box. Inside this month’s box we had a box of Good Thins ($3.69/box), a bag of Mr.Thinster’s ($2.99/bag), a box of Tolerant Foods ($4.99/box), a box of Goya Quinoa Blend ($2.99/box), a box of Loacker cookies ($3.99/box), a box of Paul’s Quinoa ($7.49/box), a bottle of Energems ($6.99/bottle), a 7 days snack ($1.49/pack), a bag of Boboli pizza dough ($4.99/bag) and a can of Lemoncocco ($1.59/Can).  That is a total value of $36.21 which is $16.21 over the price of the subscription. Other than the Loacker cookies, Good Thins and  Energems, everything in this box was new to me. I was excited to try so many different brands (especially the Mrs.Thinster’s and the 7Days croissant). Although this wasn’t my favorite Degustabox, I was extremely excited to learn about some great new brands! These are things I would have never grabbed off of the shelves myself (which is the point of a subscription box, right?)!

Candy Club

This is the perfect subscription box for anyone with a sweet tooth! Candy Club is a monthly subscription box filled with hand selected candy. Plans include a monthly plan for $27.99/month, a 6 month plan for $22.99/month, and a 12 month plan for $19.99/month. You can also upgrade your subscription to include additional candy. These upgrades are 1 addition for $7.99/candy, two additions for $6.99/candy, or three additions for $5.99/candy. Once you pick a plan, Candy Club gives you a quick survey to determine which candy will go into your box. After my survey, I was given three candies. I had the option to approve these candies or choose something else. Since I liked what was in my box, I hit okay and waited for my box to be shipped straight to me! This month’s box included Fini® Sour Filled Watermelon Bricks, Nassau® Chocolate Duds, and Fini® Assorted Jellies.  The sour filled watermelon bricks were extremely flavorful. They are licorish style ropes filled with sour watermelon cream! The chocolate duds were nice and chewy. Each bite was filled with caramel which was nice.  Every bite was a bit different, but everything was filled with chocolatey goodness! The assorted jellies were nice and sweet. They had a huge variety of flavors and I couldn’t stop eating them! On top of my three main candies, I also received green apple salt water taffy! Overall, I think Candy Club is a great investment! I received well over three pounds of candy which will last me well into my next box. Each candy also came in a closable container, so my goodies will stay fresh until I decide to chow down again! Such a fun (and yummy) subscription box!
