It’s May GoodnessMe Box review time! This month’s box was Gut Lovin’ themed and I’m always happy to have new ways to keep my gut happy! Not only did it come with snacks and drinks galore, but a book full of tips and challenges as well, which was super handy. So, let’s see what was in the vegan version this month shall we!
VGood Chickpea Twists
These chickpea twists were a crunchy, tasty snack option. The sea salt flavour was simple but right up my alley, and it’s nice to get a bit of fibre and protein in my snack options too! They’re no potato chips, but they certainly made for a great healthy alternative.
MunchMe Dipped Almonds
It’s safe to say I was very happy when I saw these in the May GoodnessMe Box! I have loved every product from this brand I have tried in previous boxes, and these almonds were definitely a highlight of the box. Crunchy, savoury, sweet – they really hit all the boxes. It was difficult to stop myself just eating them all the second I opened the box!
Mojo Kombucha Soda
I love kombucha, so I was excited to give this one a try. The berry flavour was really tasty, and I found this a really refreshing drink on a sunny afternoon. It was more carbonated than some of the kombuchas I drink, but still very drinkable. I’m keen to find out what other flavours they do too!
Botanika Blends Apple Pie Protein Bar
I’ve tried a few Botanika Blends products now, but I think this was the first of their bars I have had. The apple pie flavour was really nice, and even tasted like the pastry part of the pie! The texture was a bit dry and crumbly, but that didn’t detract too much from the taste. A good protein hit as well!
Seedlip & Tonic
I’m usually not too bothered by non-alcoholic drinks, but the fact this came pre-mixed with cucumber tonic definitely interested me! I had it as a mid-week drink with dinner and it was like drinking a delicious, flavoured tonic water. I guess that’s because that’s exactly what it is! I usually just drink soda water during the week, but this was a nice alternative option, that’s for sure.
Morlife Complete Gut Restore
This tropical flavoured powder was tastier than I thought it might be, and was very drinkable. It’s hard to assess the effectiveness of a product like this from a sample size, but it certainly didn’t hurt my digestive system! I’d definitely be interested in giving this more of a try.
Hart & Soul Sweet Potato & Ginger Soup
I’m always happy to see Hart & Soul products in the Box, as they make for excellent quick meals. This soup was no exception – it was perfect for a chilly Saturday lunch (with some cheese on toast of course!). The soup was really tasty, with a good amount of ginger flavour and a little hint of chilli too. Ready in just a few minutes too!
Mt Elephant Hemp Seeds
I use hemp seeds a lot, so I was very happy to see these in the May GoodnessMe Box. I find them such a useful thing to add to smoothies, sprinkle on salads, pop in my pesto – you name it. Slightly nutty in flavour and packed with goodness – what’s not to love!
Lifestart Naturopathics Fem21
I wasn’t able to give this product a try, but I will pass it on to a friend who will be able to instead.
Biogensis Chlorella Powder
I’m always a bit nervous about these kinds of powders (no one wants to be drinking something that tastes like a swamp!), but I popped this in a green smoothie and was pleasantly surprised! Knowing that I was adding a good dose of protein, iron and other nutrients was definitely good too! This is another one where a sample dose isn’t enough to tell whether it does what it says on the packet, but it certainly didn’t hurt!
Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar Drink
It’s safe to say this is another one I wasn’t sure about, but was pleasantly surprised by! The sediment and the description had me worried it was going to be quite sour, but it was refreshingly tasty instead. I loved the ginger flavour, and didn’t even notice the sediment when I drank it!
White Wolf Nutrition Protein Blend
Last but definitely not least is this salted caramel protein powder! I mixed this through my oats one morning and it made for a very tasty breakfast. It blended through really easily and the end result was a protein-packed bowl of deliciousness! An excellent way to start my day.
