December Bulu Box Review

December Bulu Box Review

As part of my journey to a healthier me, I am always on the lookout for new products that can help make this journey easier.  It can be very frustrating, though, spending money on a full-size bottle of something just to find out that it doesn’t work for me or I hate the flavor, etc.

I have tried Bulu Box and found it to be very helpful.  The samples come with information on what they are useful for.  I also got a free trial of a yoga program and found out I LOVE yoga!!  Also, if you don’t like something, you didn’t spend money on a full-sized bottle.

My Review

Bulu Box Review

Here’s what the Bulu Box looked like before I opened it.  I love all the positive messages on the outside. My favorite is “Do something today your future will thank you for”.

This is what was inside the box when I opened it up.  Each box comes with a little brochure that gives a brief description of each of the products.

I thought the box had a nice variety of products.  There was a full size box of real fruit snacks, a pack of vitamin biscuits, a protein brownie and a K-cup of coffee.  There were also a few different types of energy supplements, as well as an energy patch.  Not all of the products sampled apply to my situation, but since they are general boxes, I can’t complain.

For a cost of only $10 a box, I find Bulu Box to be a worthwhile investment and fun way to try new products.  Two thumbs up!!!

Right now, Bulu Box has the following offers for my readers:

Orange Jello Salad

orange jello salad

One of my favorite go-to bring-along for holiday dinners is orange jello salad.  My mother-in-law makes it, and our whole family loves it, so a few years ago I decided to start making it for myself.  There really was no written down recipe, just a few ingredients, but it is such a hit I thought I would get it in writing so I could share it with my readers!!

This is a fairly caloric recipe, but you can lighten it up by using low-fat cottage cheese and light whipped topping (although I personally think the taste would suffer).

Orange Jello Salad


1 (16 oz.) container cottage cheese

1 (6 oz.) package orange Jello

1 (12 oz.) container Cool Whip

2 small cans mandarin oranges, drained


Mix together the cottage cheese and Jello powder until well blended.  Thoroughly fold in the Cool Whip and 1 1/2 cans of mandarin oranges.  Top with the remaining mandarin oranges ( or, in a pinch I have also used fresh Cuties – yummy!!)  Cover and refrigerate 2-3 hours or overnight, if possible.
