YumiBox Review February 2017
YumiBox is a monthly subscription box that was created to bring back whole grains and to inspire healthy carbohydrate choices for overall health, as well as blood sugar management. Every month they will send you a box containing a bag of savory whole grain mix, and a bag of breakfast oatmeal mix. They kindly sent us this box for review.
This will be my third month in a row reviewing YumiBox, and I have to say, I am loving this subscription. First of all, I am pretty darn strict when it comes to my diet, and second, I HATE grocery shopping. I’ve really come to love food subscriptions this past year as they have cut down on time spent in the grocery aisle. This makes me extremely happy!
Here’s a look at my February YumiBox…..
Red Velvet Breakfast Oatmeal
Roses are red.
Violets are blue.
We hope this is the perfect oatmeal for you!
Key ingredients: oats, hemp seeds, coconut shreds, sugar-free chocolate chunks, raspberries, strawberry powder, beet root powder
Oh my goodness, how fun is it that they made their breakfast mix holiday appropriate this month! I absolutely love it! This mixture sounds amazing, and the recipe that came with it sounds even better – Red velvet Overnight Oats.
I have been wanting to try this overnight oat thing for quite some time and now is my chance. Their recipe calls for yogurt but I am going to use coconut cream instead.
Wild Buffalo Savoury Whole Grain Mix
It’s wild. And a little hot…
Our own buffalo seasoning, with just the right amount of spice.
Key ingredients: Quinoa, Kaniwa, Bulgur, red lentils, brown basmati rice, paprika, chilli powder, cayenne, ground mustard, garlic, onion, apple cider vinegar
I love that they do a savoury mix every month. It means that I always have a side dish ready to go. Just whip up one of these little packages, throw together a salad, and you have a quick dinner.
The recipe they included for the savoury mix is Buffalo Grains Lettuce Wraps. It only take 20 minutes to make and uses minimal ingredients. I love it already.
YumiBox Review February 2017 – Final Thoughts
I absolutely love the whole grain mixtures they included this month! Really, really, really love. The Red Velvet mix is perfect for the month of February, and the Savoury Mix has some really amazing spices. I am more than excited to test out both mixtures, and the recipes to go with them. I have been wanting to try overnight oats for quite some time and I already have all the ingredients needed to whip up a batch. Lately I have been using my monthly oatmeal mixtures to make breakfast cookies, and as much as I love them, I feel like I should mix it up a bit this month. The savoury mixtures provide quick dinner options and ensure that I always have something on hand for last-minute meals. I truly am loving my monthly YumiBox delivery. It keeps my healthy eating on track and my pantry stocked. One less trip to the grocery store every month……..#happygirl
