Eat well. Be well. {Influenster box}

This box and its contents were given to me free of charge in exchange for an honest review. #AD


I've been an influencer for a few years now! It been a while since I've received a box (due to lack of efforts on my side 😊) I was super happy when I finally downloaded the app and started getting asked to participate in the influencer program again . 

The Eat Well. Be Well. Box showed up at my about some happy mail! It was filled with snacks...and coupons for some freebies! 

glutino's gluten free pretzels were ah-mazing! In fact I wasn't planning on sharing those...and I left the bad unattended for a few minutes and when I came back they were gone. These pretzels were so crispy! 

Next up we tried the evol mac and cheese. The mac and cheese wasn't our first choice for the evol products that was all our local store had in stalk for this brand. Honestly my kids weren't a fan...I think it had to do with the bread crumb like topping more than the taste..or the "truffle" taste....but they are on the picky side...and this is more of a grown dish. I though it tasted good...the portion size was on the smaller size...this would make a great lunch for one...or an easy side dish...which is what I used ours for. Another major con is that I found the product to be a little pricey for the size. 

For the free Udi's product we decided to try out the pizza 🍕 ...we liked it. I honestly could tell that it was gluten tasted like a gluten filled frozen pizza to me. This is perfect for those with a gluten allergy or for those trying a gluten free diet! For someone who is gluten free and missing pizza this would really hit the spot! The only downside to this product is that it cooked really fast...way faster than the box said it woul...but that could be due to the fact that we have a gas oven???...user error on my end???...not sure exactly??...I kept an eye on it...but if I had let it cook according to the box it would have burnt. Added bonus...Four out of four kids in my house gobbled this cheesy creation up.

For the Earth Balance product we originally set out to try the cheese like crackers...we are always on the look out for those. Our local grocery store didn't carry them so we settled for the crunchy peanut butter. Settle we did NOT! This was such a great PB...I'm hooked...I will for sure purchase this brand in the future. Yum, yum! 

Overall I was truly impressed with these brands and products. I am happy to see healthier bad natural food choices becoming more readily available!!!
