I received the following products complementary from Influenster for testing purposes. All reviews are my own honest opinions.
Lately I have been thinking more and more about healthy living and the fact that sometimes what my family and I tend to put in and on our bodies, may in fact not be really good for us.
I have thought about the whole eating "healthy" when we go to a fast food joint, but then I realize that ordering something that is considered to be healthier for you than the regular double cheeseburger with extra pickles that I usually get, is just way too expensive. And then for like the past year, I have been ordering chicken- in hopes that it's just that much better for my body, and digestive system. Sure I feel so much better, and now barely eat "cow". Now, if I could just get off this pop kick, I'm on, I would be good.
Anyways, switching to chicken is one thing, but I wanted to take it a step farther and try out the "all natural, no additives or preservatives, organic, gluten free" type of food. But I didn't know where to start, and I really didn't want to spend a crap ton of money on something that I would wind up hating.
Then Influenster sent me an e-mail and my problems were solved. They told me that I was officially a part of their new #rockthelunchbox campaign- basically you get a bunch of "health foods" and become awesome for it. Yeah, I was kinda stoked.
They sent me an envelope full of coupons for some free food. Some free gluten free, no additives or preservatives, organic, and all natural food. So I decided to pick up the food, and try it out...
Through Influenster, I was able to try Annie's Homegrown Mini Pizza Bagels & Friends Bunny Grahams, Applegate Half Time lunch, and Honest Kids Organic Juice (in berry lemonade). They also sent me a coupon for Rudi's Bakery Bread, but I wasn't able to find Rudi's at Target.
My son loved the Honest Kids Berry Lemonade- He actually has drank the whole box. Unfortunately, I was not a fan. I found it to taste like a flavored water.
I felt the same way with the Annie's Friends Bunny Grahams- my son loved them, but I hated them. After eating three or four, I actually wanted to throw up. Sad, but honest.
On the other hand, I actually liked the Mini Pizza Bagels. They didn't taste like the regular pizza bagels I'm used to, but they didn't taste horrible. I would definitely recommend them as an introduction into organic and healthy food.
I also liked the Half Time lunch. I took it with me to work, and It was really good (although I didn't eat the gummies or yogart- it's for my son).
So, I am quite sure if organic and healthy products are for me, just yet. I really think that it would be an all or nothing approach and definitely a lifestyle change. Which we aren't ready for just yet.
But hey, at least the pizza bagels were good :)
Have you ever tried organic or healthy foods?
