|How fun and motivating is the box? All my favorite mantras--well, at least some of them, right there. I couldn't wait to open it up!|
Disclaimer: I received my Bulu Box free in exchange for my review. All opinions are, of course, my own!
Here are the results:
|My youngest son gave me the thumbs up. Even my oldest son, Mr. Cynical, told me they were "really good". He wouldn't pose for a picture, though. Still, I puffed out my chest a little bit.|
What else was in the Bulu Box?
I have to admit that I was a little hesitant to try the Yerba Prima fiber powder. I have IBS, or as I like to call it, "I'll Be Stopping", and my GI tract has not been behaving well during this marathon training cycle. Not sure if I wanted to throw something new in there, I went to the manufacturer's website to learn more. The product contains soluble and insoluble fiber, and is completely vegan. The main ingredient is psyllium. Reviews on multiple websites were overwhelmingly positive. Since most reviewers commented on the "rapid effectiveness" of this product, I put this one aside for another time when I don't have to worry about stopping on the run. As if my GI tract needs any more encouragement to move it, move it. And speaking of moving it....

Earth's Care Anti-itch cream could not have come at a better time. The mosquitos have been just terrible this summer. I imagine that you could also use the cream for other itchy conditions, as well as for skin irritations like sunburn and HELLO! chafing. The main ingredient is camphor, which is an external analgesic. Meaning it numbs the pain. I don't know about you, but there is something comforting about that smell. And the camphor feels cool on the skin, which is very soothing.
Overall, I thought the Bulu box was fun. I like the idea of trying samples of a product before you commit to buying. I really hate being stuck with a product that was hyped and I didn't like it. For sure, I'd buy the Quest protein powder! It was fun baking with it, and I love the idea of high protein cookies.

And here's the recipe. You could probably substitute any protein powder for the peanut butter flavor. But boy, were these cookies good! I'm going to apologize in advance that I don't have the recipe in printable format, but I crashed the blog trying to do that...I'll keep working on it, but in the meantime, feel free to cut and paste! You won't be sorry...
