We are two weeks into the new year, and I am doing great with my New Year’s resolutions! I have been taking two breaks at work to walk for 20 minutes, I’m meal planning with healthy foods, and I have been taking better care of myself. The new year is a perfect time of year to set goals and and change habits to live a healthier life.
To help me reach my mind, mood and food goals for the year, BabbleBoxx sent me a phenomenal box of goodies! If my best friend were picking out the things I would most love for a healthy new year, this box would be it!
Here’s what was inside my BabbleBoxx.
Items to Help Keep Your New Year’s Resolutions
Food Health and Wellness by Oprah Winfrey
Oprah is one of my favorite people, and she has released a brand new healthy cookbook! It’s filled with recipes that she created along with her favorite chefs. The recipes are accompanied by personal essays and behind-the-scenes looks at her life.
Oprah Winfrey has filled her cookbook with 115 on-point recipes that promote a healthier and better life. This cookbook is so much more than just recipes. I really get a sense of who Oprah Winfrey is and why she selected the recipes in this book. I can’t wait to spend the next year cooking my way through it!
Made in Nature Tart Cherry Fig Figgy Pops
Snacking can be one of my biggest downfalls! I make a habit of not bringing unhealthy snacks into my home, but I have less self-control when I am at work. That’s why I am excited to stock my desk with Made in Nature Tart Cherry Fig Figgy Pops. These delicious energy balls are made with tart cherries, figs, dates, walnuts, and cashews, and coated with coconut flakes.
These yummy healthy snacks are certified organic and non-GMO project verified, so you know you’re getting top-quality ingredients. There is no added refined sugar, they’re unsulfured, free from preservatives and a good source of fiber.
You can grab a package (or two) here — be sure to use the code janboosters to receive $10 off orders of $39+ from their site (valid from 1/1 – 2/28).
I am a big advocate for the health benefits of water, and always make sure to get in my 8+ glasses a day. It has been probably 10 years since I regularly purchased plastic bottled water, because I don’t like knowing that the plastic bottles can take 450 years to decompose. Lending a HUGE helping hand to the environment, JUST® water gives consumers 100% spring water in a paper-based container made from materials that were responsibly sourced, produced and delivered. Their efforts result in a 74% reduction in CO2 emissions compared to a traditional plastic bottle.
JUST® water comes from Glens Falls watershed in New York, where water is abundant. You can feel good about your environmental impact when you pass up the plastic bottled water and opt for JUST® water instead. Find them nationally for a retail price of $.99 for 16.9-ounce bottle.
SIPSCRIPTIONS teas from Tea Forté
I used to be an avid Dr. Pepper drinker, and several years ago, I made a big effort to dramatically cut my soft drink intake. To help me accomplish this goal, I started drinking hot tea in the morning and afternoon, instead of a soda.
Since then, I have fallen in love with hot tea! Tea warms the soul, provides the perfect afternoon pick-me-up, and it can be healing. People have been drinking tea for thousands of years, and with the combination of tea leaves, fresh herbs, botanicals and spices, teas provide natural remedies and good health.
Tea Forté is a great way to grow or nurture healthy living with their handcrafted tea blends. I was able to try out their SIPSCRIPTIONS Collection, in both their loose tea canisters and Single Steeps-perfect measure single serve loose tea pouches. Their organic teas include:
- RESIST Wellness Tea
- REGROUP Detox Tea
- REBOOT Tea for Energy
- RESULTS Tea for Fitness
- RETREAT Tea for Relaxation
I received one of their KATI® Steeping Cups, which I am absolutely obsessed with. This is perfect for steeping loose-leaf tea at work in the morning or afternoon. Check out their website to find their cups in a beautiful assortment of designs and colors. Use the code WELLNESS through 1/31/17 to get 10% off any Sipscription item!
Over the holiday break, my boyfriend and I went hiking throughout New Mexico to visit some historical and culturally-significant sites. During one of our expeditions, we encountered a 2-mile hike in a very wet, very snowy environment. By the time we got back to the car, my feet were soaked and frozen. Next time, I am definitely taking my FITS® medium hiker socks!
If you want the best fitting socks on the planet, FITS® socks are the way to go. FITS® is a premium sock brand that utilizes the best raw materials with innovative, proprietary engineering and technology to help you find the best-fitting, most comfortable sock in the world.
I was able to try out four of their premium socks:
- Ultra Light Runner Sock – these top rated running socks are made with a Super-fine Merino wool to create the lightest running sock without sacrificing protection.
- Light Runner Sock – provides high impact cushioning in the toe cup and heel lock. These are low-cut socks that your shoe won’t eat.
- Light Hiker Sock – provides absorbant cushion under the foot to keep your feet comfortable and supported all day long.
- Medium Hiker Sock – all of the cushioning of a perfect sock, without the extra weight. This is the perfect sock for serious adventurers seeking a hard hike.

EQUAL Beanie & Bracelet
One of my recurring New Year’s resolutions has been to show more kindness, to myself and to others. It was heartbreaking to see the amount of hatred that was directed at certain groups of people last year.
EQUAL is sharing a message of equality for all. Even though we all look different, have different beliefs, desires and talents, we are all equal. We all deserve respect, acceptance and equal rights. I received a beanie and bracelet with their meaningful and aesthetically strong symbols that promote unifying equality.
EQUAL wants you to make a resolution to #disruptdiscrimination in 2017 by snagging their merchandise and then “wear it. share it. change the world” by sharing your pics on social media.
I can’t wait to try all of these exciting products to reach my mind, mood and food goals for the New Year! What are your goals or resolutions for 2017?
