Influenster Eat Well Be Well #VoxBox

I received the Eat Well Be Well box, courtesy of Influenster, a couple of weeks ago. This box featured several food brands that offer some healthier food options. I made a little video explaining the box; check it out and check out my quick reviews below.

Earth Balance Buttery Spread
This is a product that I've used kbefore and I like it quite well. I use it the same way I'd use real butter: to cook, bake, and as a spread. And I think it works really well. It melts, blends, and spreads like real butter. Also, has a similar buttery taste. I'll definitely repurchase and try some of the other varieties. 

As mentioned in the video, I went to the store with the intention to buy bread but didn't see any. So I opted for this frozen pepperoni pizza. Note, I haven't had frozen pizza in a while so I don't have much to compare it to besides what I've had in the past. And compared to those it was pretty good. Especially for gluten-free. Not as good as homemade or delivery, but decent and good in a pinch. And please note that I don't follow a gluten-free diet, but I try (and have tried in the past) gluten-free from time to time. 
I cooked it in my conventional oven according to the directions. Then I decided to add a few minutes cooking time to make sure the crust was as crisp as I like. There was a nice balance of cheese, sauce, and pepperoni. It was mildly seasoned but not bland. Though I did add a few of my own seasonings and toppings just to punch it up a bit.  

I've seen this brand around for years and have tried a few items here and there. They have a pretty wide selection available so it took me a while to choose. Then I finally settled on the Enchilada with bacon. It was pretty good-not too salty but definitely not bland.  And was very saucy; there was plenty of sauce left after I had eaten the enchiladas. I thought the fillings ration were balanced and the size was right too; not too large or small.

This was the only food item that came in the box. They were crunchy but not too hard. Not too salty and the pretzel flavor was mild. 

Overall, I enjoyed this box. I really love trying out new products and food items. I'll definitely be checking out more items from each of these brands. Are you familiar with these brands? If so, what are your favorite products. Let me know in the comments.
