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.

DIY Microwave Popcorn

Popcorn is one of my favourite snacks. Popcorn is a whole grain, high in fibre, low in fat and very affordable! Living in a student residence at my university I do not have enough storage space for an air popper, and I prefer to avoid all the added chemicals found in many microwave popcorns. As a solution to these challenges I discovered a way to DIY Microwave Popcorn! This has changed my snack game, and I am amazed at how easy and cheap it is to make! Every time I share how easy it is to make my friends are mind blown so I figured it was time for a blog post dedicated just to making it!   Continue reading
