Healthy Belly Box is a new subscription box that focuses on healthy, gluten-free foods and snacks.
Each box will include at least 8 different products that are all certified gluten-free. While not exclusively vegan, there will likely be quite a few vegan-friendly items as well. Featured brands can include Pamela’s, LÄRABAR, Annie’s, Hodgson Mill, and more. Healthy Belly Box has a mission to serve those with Celiac’s disease, MTHFR gene mutation, gluten-free diets, dairy-free diets, and sensitive stomachs. A portion of their profits are regularly donated to organizations who support the digestive health community.
Subscriptions are $34.99/month or as a one-time purchase.
Let’s see what’s in the September 2016 Healthy Belly Box!
Everything was shipped in a white box with a big green Healthy Belly Box logo on top.
A peek inside!
An info sheet listed all of the items inside September’s box and noted that they can omit future products that don’t meet your dietary needs or restrictions (just let them know).
Pamela’s Simple Bites Chocolate Chip Mini Cookies – These little cookie bites look delicious (well, from the illustration anyway) and I was excited when I saw that they were dairy-free. Sadly, they do contain eggs and are therefore not vegan-friendly. Aw. Oh well, my kids will enjoy them and I’m happy that they’re trans fat free and don’t contain any artificial additives.
Bamboo Lane Crunchy Rice Rollers – I’ve actually seen these in our local grocery store but was too cheap to buy them. 😉 They’re basically lightly sweetened rice cakes in “log” form. I thought they would be on the bland side, but they’re actually quite sweet.
Larabars – I think Larabars might possibly be the simplest, yet tastiest snack bars out there. They’re not only gluten-free, but also vegan, soy-free, non-GMO, and kosher. Each bar is made with pure ingredients consisting mainly of fruit and nuts.
Dang Toasted Coconut Chips – I was first introduced to Dang coconut chips a couple years ago when they first started popping up in subscription boxes. They’re crunchy pieces of toasted coconut flavored with a bit of sugar & salt and they’re delicious. Even my picky preschoolers like ’em!
Adelheidis Vegan Sesame Crunch – Adelheidis is a Naples, FL based shop that specializes in made from scratch organic treats. This sesame crunch is both vegan & gluten-free and is made with organic coconut, organic cane sugar, organic sesame seeds, organic vanilla bean, and other all natural ingredients.
Pirate’s Booty Aged White Cheddar Puffs – Baked rice & corn puffs made with real aged white cheddar cheese. These contain no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives and are another favorite amongst the preschool crowd. 😉
That’s It Apple + Blueberry Bar – This bar is made with just two ingredients: Apples and blueberries. — That’s it! (Hence the name.) Can’t get simpler than that. Well, aside from actual fresh fruit anyway.
Healthy Belly Box is clearly a great choice for anyone who can’t have (or is trying to avoid) gluten. While I was familiar with most of the snacks, I did discover a few that I hadn’t tried before. I didn’t do a price breakdown, but I feel like maybe there should have been a couple more items to justify the monthly subscription cost. Other than that, I was happy. 🙂

I purchased a Healthy Belly Box subscription for my mother in law who resides in an assisted living facility. She has celiac disease and is on a restricted diet. The dining room at her facility provides good food but she told me long ago that the limited meal selections can be mundane. The HBB proved to be a wonderful treat for her taste buds. An added benefit is that the box is delivered right to her door. Taste, variety, and above all convenience is all well worth the cost. She is enjoying the snacks.
