YumiBox Review - January 2017 - Canadian Nutrition Subscription Box + PROMO CODE

This box was provided complimentary for review.
What is it? YUMiBOX
How Much? $29.99 per month, including shipping and tax. Prices in Canadian dollars.
What's in it? A bag of YUMiGrains mix, a bag of YUMiOats mix, and 2 unique YUMiRecipes  (16 servings total)

YUMiBOX is a Canadian subscription that sends healthy grain and oat mixes. With YUMiBOX you get more flavour and less sugar! According to the co-founder Zoey, "YUMiBOX was created to bring back whole grains and to inspire healthy carbohydrate choices for overall health, as well as blood sugar management". Zoey says that eating healthy carbohydrates is difficult for most people, and that whole grains have been forgotten (or demonized - we all know about the low-carb diet craze!). YUMiBOX mixes are created by a team of nutritionists and dietitians to help people with heart health, weight management, and blood sugar control.

Each month the box will include a bag of whole grain mix, a bag of breakfast oatmeal mix, and two recipe cards. Both mixes offer at 8 individually packaged servings, which helps with portion control. The savoury grain mix is a healthy alternative to rice or pasta, and cooks within 20 minutes. The oat mix is a low-sugar breakfast oatmeal that can be prepared in just a few minutes. The mix flavours change each month.

YUMiBOX ships on the 15th of each month. You can skip or cancel any time from your account page.

YUMiBOX mixes are vegetarian and many are vegan. Some products contain nuts. Each month you will receive an e-mail detailing the new flavours.  You can check the ingredient list, and skip the month if the ingredients don't work for you. The products are not gluten-free.

YUMiGRAINS: RATATOUILLE DELIGHT
Did someone say Ratatouille? Our Tomato-y twist on a French Classic will be sure to fill your new year with lots of flavour! 

According to YUMiBOX:
YUMiGrains are NOT meal replacements! They simply replace your rice and potatoes for lunch and dinner. Be sure to pair with your favourite protein and vegetable sources for a balanced meal.

Key ingredients: Barley, quinoa, freekeh, black lentils, wheat berries, tomato, onion, garlic, celery seeds, basil, sage, oregano, parsley, lavender, thyme

YUMiOATS: TROPICAL BOOST
Rise and shine with our mango and baobab superfoods. Packed with antioxidants, especially Vitamin C! Feel the warmth from the sun. 

Key ingredients: oats, freeze dried mangoes, baobab fruit powder, almonds, poppy seeds

The recipe for the oat mix is a Mango Baobab Smoothie Bowl. I didn't have some of ingredients on hand to follow the recipe, so I improvised. I used almond milk, frozen berries, and 1 packet of Tropical Boost YUMiOats. I topped the creation with sliced bananas and hemp hearts. It was a tasty and new way to get my morning oatmeal! I would also use these mixes with yogourt, or as a cereal (warm or cold) with almond milk.

The January YUMiBOX includes two healthy grain and oat mixes, offering 16 individually packaged servings. This box costs $29.99 Canadian per month, including shipping! I first reviewed YUMiBOX in June 2016 when they first launched. Since then, the cost has dropped a bit and they changed to individual, portion controlled packets. I love this change. The mixes stay fresher longer and the oat mix can be taken to go to enjoy at work. YUMiBOX is a great and easy way to get healthy grains into your diet.

This box is available to purchase until January 15th, so if these mixes appeal to you, sign up today! Use promo code CDNBOXADDICT5 for $5 off your first box!
