Introducing our marvellous May box!

❤️️ Hello to our marvellous May Lifebox worth over £40 ❤️️

Welcome to your Lifebox!

Did you know that roughly 70% of your immune system is housed in your gut? Pretty crazy right!

We are coming to learn more everyday about how crucial gut health & a happy microbiome is to our daily & long-term wellbeing. Known as the ‘second brain’, our gut microbiome plays a key role in both our physical and mental health.

Stress has a huge impact on our wellbeing, but also the wellbeing & diversity of our gut bacteria. So, this month, we have really focused on supporting your gut microbiome & immune system as we re-enter a kind of ‘normal’.

In this box you will find a full week course of Symprove Probiotic worth £14.5 (best taken first thing on an empty stomach), Fight Vitamin Immunity Gummies and Teapigs Matcha Turmeric Lattes that are packed full of antioxidants!

You will also find lots of tasty fibre-rich snacks that you will love (your microbiome will too!) including Nudie Cauli Crisps, Love Corn, Urban Fruit, Honest Bean & Evolved.

Spice up your mornings with Bottleshot and dinners with Lucy’s Dressings & Manomasa

We hope you love you box! 

Lots of love, Alicia

Introducing our amazing April Lifebox!

❤️️ Hello to our amazing April Lifebox worth £40 ❤️️

Normality is that you?
 
As we approach the Summer and lockdown life slowly eases, it feels so far-fetched that soon we’ll be able to visit restaurants, sit in a cinema and socialise in a larger number than 6.
 
The last year has changed us all in so many different ways & you’re not alone if you’ve adjusted to a new ‘normal’ that sees life operate at a slower pace.
 
So our amazing April box was curated with stress management & relaxation in mind, as life gradually returns to normal.
 
It was also curated with Easter in mind, because we all deserve some chocolatey goodness to celebrate the long weekend & return of Spring!
 
Find Virtue for an energy boost, Better You for immune system support, JinJin for a happy gut, Good Mood Co for the perfect day and Tribe, Tonys Chocolonely and Soopergood for that cacao fix! 
 
We hope you love your box!
 
Lots of love, Alicia xx

Our Fantastic November Box!

Welcome to the November Lifebox!

While in general I enjoy these colder days spent enjoying the cosy comforts of home, I don’t know about you, but I often find myself exhausted around this time of the year. 

It feels eternally dark outside and even going for a quick walk just doesn’t sound that appealing.

It’s actually very common to struggle with sleep & experience a lower mood during the Winter months. Why? We actually need daylight (& sunlight) to help regulate our Circadian Rhythm. Sunlight also triggers the release of Serotonin – our happy neurotransmitter, and of course Vitamin D.

So, what’s the solution? When you wake up, try to open all your curtains and get as much light into your eyes as possible straight away. If you can go for a pre-work or lunchtime walk outside to do some gentle stretches, this will definitely help!

I know that the weather sometimes won’t allow for this, so we’ve included some helpful goodies in this month’s box to support our bodies & mind during Winter. Including the fabulous Linwoods Flax with Vitamin D & Probiotics and Jetfuel Rest Sachets which value at £20.

You’ll also find Westlab Muscle Spray to help revive tired muscles and aid relaxation, Virtue Drinks for some natural energy if you’re feeling groggy and Chescots Porridge Pots & the Coconut Collab to get your day off to a flying start.

Of course, the box is also packed with handy on the go snacks including POP Peanut Bar, The Protein Ball Co, Shore Seaweed Crisps, Nucao, Miso Tasty, Mister Freed and Teapigs. We hope you love your box!

Lots of love, Alicia xx

Our Incredible October Box!

Welcome to the October Lifebox!

Autumn is fully under way and we’re starting to brace for colder weather and darker days! I’m a huge fan of October – not just because it’s my birthday month – but also because it’s a great excuse for cosy jumpers and hot baths.

As we enter into the colder months of the year, our immune system has to work extra hard to ward off any unwanted germs or bugs that thrive in the chillier weather.

That’s why this month’s Lifebox is an ode to Autumn Wellbeing and we’ve kitted it out with some amazing brands that will help keep you feeling your best as winter approaches.

Starting with an essential nutrient for our immune systems and supporting our mood which can nosedive during darker days – Vitamin D! In this box you’ll find the amazing Better You Vitamin D Spray – take this daily underneath your tongue to feel the effects! You’ll also find the fantastic JetFuel Botanical Blend Tea that comes in three varieties – Immunity, Energy & Rest – & we’re here for all of them!

A very special feature is Phytality Ultana Phytoplankton – one of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet! It is rich in omega 3 and contains a whopping 75 essential nutrients. Check out their recipe on page 4 & 5 to find out how to incorporate it into your daily diet.

We also have lots of gut loving goodies to keep your microbes happy including Quinola, Remedy Kombucha, Pimp my Salad & Great British Porridge Co.  

Then of course a few sweet treats, because what is a Lifebox without some – the BRAND NEW Ombar Praline Bar, Dormens, Raw & Wild Pili Nuts and Bepps!

I hope you love your box!

Lots of love, Alicia xx

Brave Pesto Stuffed Arancini

 

Introducing the incredible Brave Foods.


You’ll find a pack of their award-winning, deliciously crunchy chickpeas in our September Lifebox! Get your box here!

If you can manage to not wolf them down as soon as you open the box (you’ve done a better job than us), check-out the recipe below created by the fantastic @hungrygirlsdiaries

Pesto Stuffed Arancini 

*Makes 14-16 medium sized arancini balls*
Gluten-Free & Vegan

Ingredients:

500g Lemon, pea & basil risotto (or any vegan risotto)
100g BRAVE Chickpeas & 50g pistachios (or any nut of your choosing!)
100g Plain flour (We used Dove Farms GF plain flour)
75ml Plant milk
80-100g Pesto (We did a homemade pistachio and basil one)
Neutral Cooking oil (For frying)
Lemon wedges (To serve)

Method:

1) Heat up 6cm of oil in a large pan on medium heat to about 180°C.
2) Blitz up the chickpeas and nuts together in a blender and pour into a bowl.
3) Then pour flour into another bowl and season with salt and pepper. Pour milk into another bowl.
4) Using a dessertspoon, scoop the risotto into a ball in your hand. Press your thumb into the ball, creating a well to stuff with pesto (about half a teaspoon should do it). Cover the top with more risotto and roll into a ball.
5) First coat the ball with flour, then with milk and finish by rolling in the chickpea and nut mixture.
6) Carefully place 3-4 balls into the oil at a time. (Don’t overcrowd as it lowers the temperature of the oil). Cook for around 5-6 minutes until golden and crispy!
7) Serve with lemon wedges to squeeze over.

September Snacking… Sorted!

This month is all about Seasonal Wellness.

The days are drawing closer and the weather is playing us hot & cold. But there’s something I find magical about the seasons changing, with all the green around us gradually becoming beautiful Autumnal shades of red and brown.

As the season changes, so do our nutritional needs.

In Summer, it’s all about cooling foods rich in hydrating electrolytes and carotenoids that protect our skin from UV rays. As the temperature drops, we need more warming foods that help to nourish our body, keep our immune system supported and protect us against any pesky germs hanging around.

Which is why you’ll find the amazing Taka Turmeric Hibiscus Tea that supports, well, just about everything! Turmeric has long been considered a superfood for a reason – it has shown to support healthy immune function and has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties! I’ll give that a go.

We’ve also included Brave Chickpeas packed full of gut loving fibre and Phizz Multivitamin Rehydration Tablets for when you just need a bit of extra support! You’ll also find the amazing Vita Coco and Willys ACV in this box with their nourishing and delicious health drinks.

Then of course a couple of little treats including the brand new Conscious Chocolate Brazil Nuts, Mallow Puffs and Just Wholefoods Sweets because what is life without balance!

I love this box, and I hope you do too!

Lots of love, Alicia x
