Get Healthy Snacks from NatureBox for You, Give a Meal to Feeding America

I love snacks. I especially love when they are healthy and tasty. But have you ever, like me, gone into the kitchen for a snack, opened the cupboards and fridge, and turned away dejectedly, only to return and do the same thing in five minutes? Or, worse yet, grabbed whatever was closest to munch on no matter how unhealthy it was? Enter NatureBox here to help.

NatureBox is a service that sends a package of nutritious snacks to your door every month. No more trouble finding a snack when afternoon hunger strikes, you need to grab something on your way out the door, or dinner isn’t ready yet and you need a nibble to tide you over.

But as its name implies, NatureBox doesn’t send candies or brownies or anything of the sort, they pick five different, minimally processed foods each month to keep their subscribers guessing. Standard fare looks something like bags of dried fruit, interesting combinations of granola, and flavored nuts and seeds. Some of the snacks are unusual, but all look worth a try, like Garden Tomato Crunchies, Big Island Dried Pineapple, Roasted Umami Nuts, and Country Ranch Peas. Each box contains fifteen to twenty servings.

We’ve completed our first ever side-by-side comparison of three leading meal delivery diet programs – Bistro MD, Diet To Go, and Freshology. This segment of the diet industry is large and continues to grow. Last year, John LaRosa of MarketData shared with us that the segment should “sustain 4.5% average annual growth from 2012 to 2014, reaching $1.09 billion in the latter year.”

Which one is the best? You’re always asking and we’re always wondering ourselves. So we finally sat down to find out.

The winner? Bistro MD. It was a stand out favorite on many levels, from nutrition to taste and quality, as well as packaging.

Diet To Go took the second spot, and Freshology rounded out the list at third.

Let us explain how we got there.

myInsens Raises the Bar on Incense and Ignites the Senses for Peace of Mind

A boost of positive energy, an experience of total pleasure, and a jolt of pure ecstasy are what we all seek. A tranquil mind, a balanced life, and a calm spirit are what we all need. To realize these wants and needs, we must be open to let love quench our senses and assuage our desires. I found my love wrapped up in a pretty little velvet black box.

Derived from the most exotic, aromatic, and luscious blends of herbs, resins, and oils from around the world, myInsens incense sticks have just raised the bar in the incense industry.

Kaivan Dave, creator of myInsens, founded the company in the latter part of 2011. After spending six months developing more than 120 fragrances, he and a team of researchers decided to narrow it down and only select six of the absolute best, most pleasing aromas.

They made excellent choices. Unlike certain brands of incense products, which can have a strong chemical odor, myInsens smells natural and clean.

Freekeh is an Ancient Grain With Serious Health Benefits

We love reviewing new products at Diets In Review, especially ones that we’ve never heard of before. It’s like getting to take a sneak peek at the newest products hitting the market and we get to tell you all about them first. Our most recent product review? Freekeh, which is roasted green wheat.

If you’re trying to imagine what roasted green wheat tastes like, think of a mix between rice in appearance and flavor and wheat berries in texture. It cooks up just like rice but has a slightly chewier feel.

The Flex Belt Not Recommended for Fat Loss, but May Enhance Abs

Something I saw on TV a couple months ago caught my attention. It’s called the Flex Belt. It’s made to tone, strengthen and firm your abdominals. As I watched the commercial, I was thinking it had to be too good to be true, but if I had access to try it out, I totally would. So I did.

The day the Flex Belt came in the mail, I was actually pretty excited (which was surprising due to the lack of faith I had in it). One of the first things I did when I got home was put it on the charger. I read the directions, went through the different programs available, and started my abdominal workout as soon as the magic machine was ready. At the first moment I felt its contractions, I bursted with laughter. I really didn’t know what to think of it. I couldn’t tell if it was tickling me or if I just wasn’t used to it (probably a little of both).

I began experimenting with its different levels and programs. I was actually amazed by the intensity levels it can rise to. The Flex Belt truly was working out my abs! Now, it wasn’t the same type of workout that I would get doing the ab machines at the gym, but I could definitely feel my muscles at work without me having to worry about making sure I put in the effort myself.
