Oatbox July Review

I was very excited to receive my July Oatbox as I missed receiving my granola in the mail the past few months. I skipped my May and June Oatboxes due to allergies and the flavour options. The skipping process was very simple and can be done online.  The two July granola blends were Mango & White Chocolate Granola and Almond Crunch & Millet Granola. I use granola in a variety of ways such as on top of yogurt or a smoothie bowl, alone as a snack or even in baking as I did this month in Mango Muffins!

April Oatbox Review

I skipped my March Oatbox so I could catch up and finish my granola from previous months. The skip process was very simple and can be done online. I was very excited to receive my April’s box, especially during my final exam season when grocery shopping can be more challenging. The two April granola blends were Apricot, Black Tea & Maple granola and Maple & Walnut granola.

February Oatbox Review

The February Oatbox was my favourite combination of granola blends I have tried so far from Oatbox. It featured the following two blends; Oat Crunch and Cherry Granola and Raspberry, Wild Blueberry & White Chocolate Granola. 

OatBox sends out two 380g bags of granola in their two monthly featured flavours each month. It costs $20 a month, including taxes and shipping. You can preview the flavours and ingredients and have the option to swap out a bag with one of their regular granola blends. They also offer certified gluten-free granola blends.  Oatbox provides flexibility by allowing you to skip boxes if you don’t need more granola. In your first box you get a cute little glass container to take your granola on the go with you! Check out my December review to see what you receive in your first month! Take note that you will receive the monthly featured flavours not the December flavours I received.

Oatbox January Review

I received my first Oatbox last month and have been super happy with the granola I received and was excited to try out two new flavours. Granola and yogurt is one of my favourite breakfasts or snack. I am also a big fan of eating granola by the handful!

OatBox December Review

I have always loved getting packages in the mail. I also have a love for oats. Overnight oats, or just be eating granola by the handful is one of my favourite breakfasts and snacks. OatBox combines those loves and I couldn’t be happier with my first box!  Car2Go offered their members a free box as a holiday gift I couldn’t pass this opportunity up. I am so happy with this box I have continued my subscription and am receiving another box mid January!

Chef’s Plate Review: November 14 – 20

Chef’s Plate is a meal delivery service that delivers ingredients for recipes of your choice to your door. I did not have to spend time trying to figure out if I have all of the ingredients to make a certain dish – everything I needed was delivered! My first delivery was great so I decided to order Chef’s Plate again during a busy week of school assignments and presentations. I live alone and I found buying the three-meal plan was too much food for leftovers so I chose the two-meal plan. For the two-meal plan you do have to pay $6 in shipping. I was very pleased with the fish I received last time I ordered so I knew I wanted another seafood dish and the Lemon and Za’atar Basa dish sounded perfect! The Moroccan Turkey Tenderloin sounded like a great second dish.

The Dark Table Review

 

The Dark Table is a restaurant in Kitsilano that allows you to experience dining in the dark. I had heard great things of the Dark Table before but never had the opportunity to visit. My mother was visiting and we decided this would be a fun choice for dinner. We did not make a reservation, which I would recommend, but after waiting for about 20 minutes they were able to fit us in due to a cancellation.

You are given the menu outside where you can make your choices for your beverages, starters, mains and deserts. They have two pricing options; a starter, main and desert for $39, or you choice of a main and either a starter or a desert for $33. The starters and deserts are a surprise dish but for the main you have a choice out of five dishes. I chose the goat cheese and date stuffed chicken with roast potatoes while my mother chose the fresh ravioli with jalapeno and rosemary cream sauce. Before you enter you are asked to turn off your cellphone to ensure the space remains completely dark. Continue reading
