Reward time! Earthmiles and first experiences with Lifebox

I’ve started using an app called Earthmiles, which rewards you with ‘earthmiles’ when you opt for ‘clean transport’. Basically, you get points for walking, running and cycling which you can spend on rewards. At the moment, it’s a lot of health and exercise based rewards but I’m sure they’ll expand their partners in the future. At the moment, I think it’s UK based but I think they’re going to start branching out of the UK soon.

At the moment, I have 475em and most things are around 250em. So what did I spend my first earthmiles on? Well, I enjoy the subscription box service (fun stuff in the post, what’s not to love?), a couple of the rewards get you money off subscription boxes and they’re the companies which offer one-off trial boxes.

Like LifeBox. LifeBox offer a subscription box of healthy, ‘free from’ and ‘superfood’ snacks and products. Before I go into what I thought of the box, I have to say that as much as I was impressed by the content, packaging and the price (even without a discount, it’s very reasonable) I don’t think I would be interested in getting the box regularly (unless I had dietary requirements and found it hard to find such products). Excellent gift idea for a vegan!

So, what’s in the box?

The box is beautifully packed, and the label was a nice touch.

“Wellness starts from within. Eat to nourish fuel + thrive. Enjoy.”

As well as the products, you get a ‘what’s in the box?’ note card and a recipe card.

Pukka ‘cleanse’ tea – nettle, fennel & peppermint

100g Synergy 100% organic super greens (something to add to smoothies & protein shakes etc…)

Wunder Workshop Vegan tumeric latte. I have vegan friends who I think would really appreciate this.

Raw Halo Ginger and Pecan raw dark chocolate.

Cheeky Food sesame sprinkles. I have a few recipes which call for sesame sprinkles and I never have any because it’s just not something I would bother buying just for a recipe. Now I have some! 🙂

Teff grain. One of the ingredients mentioned on the recipe cards. I know nothing about teff grain.

Maca root powder. Something to add to smoothies, protein shakes or to the recipe on the recipe card.

Rebel Kitchen Matcha Green Tea.

Selection of nuts & seeds. Most of which I’m going to add to my ‘cycling treats’ box as they definitely look like fun stuff to take on my planned cycle ride in June! (Following the river, and I’m signed up for RideLondon).

Moma Porridge super seeds. I eat a lot of porridge and I’ve read good things about the Moma brand so I look forward to trying this.

Stoneground Activated Almond Butter

Living Food Kitchen Cacao & Date coconut flapjack.
