As the seasons change, what we eat and drink should naturally change too!
But, with beautiful flowers and blossoms can come pesky allergies so to combat this common condition, we’ve made sure to include plenty of gut loving goodies this month to support you as we enter Spring!
This month’s box is an ode to Spring and supporting your body & mind as we welcome in the warmer weather!
Since we’re spending lots of quality time at home, we’ve included Oggs & Just Wholefoods so you can take your vegan baking to the next level.
Of course what would a Lifebox be if not for a couple of extra tasty treats – we’re absolutely delighted to be including Gato & Co Peanut Butter Protein Cookies (yes you heard that right), Nairns BBQ Popped Oat, Fit Bites, and Neat Nutrition!
A healthy workforce is intrinsically linked to the success of an organisation and is increasingly a key factor in improved workplace productivity.
Some of the biggest issues affecting productivity amongst workforces today are low energy, high levels of stress, poor sleep and compromised mental wellbeing. As such, both nutrition & lifestyle choices play an integral role in work performance and engagement.
This year has presented its own challenges for businesses and employees alike, having to adapt to new ways of working & maintaining morale at a distance.
Here at Lifebox, we have partnered with many corporate businesses since launching over 7 years ago, helping to inspire thousands of employees to make healthy choices and increase workplace morale.
Our In-House Nutritionist & Owner Alicia meticulously curates each Lifebox so that they contain the perfect balance of snacks, drinks, supplements and gifts that will surprise & delight. All our boxes are 100% vegan, gluten-free and cruelty-free to suit all dietary & lifestyle requirements.
We offer a bespoke service for every order so we can truly bring your Workplace Wellness goals to life. You can request optional customisation of packaging, contents and design of leaflets or gift cards that can be included in every box. If you would like to organise nutrition & lifestyle workshops, Q&As or employee health MOT’s this can be accommodated too!
Each Lifebox includes a booklet specially curated by Alicia with nutrition & lifestyle tips to increase energy, manage stress, get restful sleep and improve memory & concentration.

‘We have yet to meet a vegan who would turn away a monthly delivery of a box full of delicious snacks and wellness products, so this one is perfect for most.
The goodies are all vegan, nutritionist approved, and free from ingredients containing gluten.
The box is designed to help its lucky receiver to feel energised and at their best, and it is a fantastic way to discover new products each month.
Our box came packed with both savoury and sweet snacks, including seaweed chips and a Nucao almond sea salt chocolate bar, as well as tea bags and wellbeing-boosting products, such as a Westlab’s Epsom salt muscle spray and Linwoods’s flaxseed with bio cultures and vitamin D.
We were delighted by how much was packed into the lovingly wrapped box and the savings are colossal in comparison to purchasing each item separately.
❤️️ Introducing the incredible January Lifebox! ❤️️
Whether you’re plant-based all year round or simply trying out Veganuary, our boxes are the perfect way to get in more goodness! New year, new you & all that…😋
Winter does feel never ending, doesn’t it? I always use the Winter solstice on the 21st December as a mental turning point, it means Spring is on its way – albeit rather slowly 🌞
With the Winter solstice firmly behind us (and 2020 for that matter), we can look forward to warmer weather & lighter days. But in the meantime, our January Lifebox is an ode to seasonal immunity and supporting a good mood!
Loved a particular product in our December Lifebox, we’re not surprised 😋
Here you’ll find exclusive discounts off your favourite goodies, making it super easy & affordable to stock up…

While in general I enjoy these colder days spent enjoying the cosy comforts of home, I don’t know about you, but I often find myself exhausted around this time of the year.
It feels eternally dark outside and even going for a quick walk just doesn’t sound that appealing.
It’s actually very common to struggle with sleep & experience a lower mood during the Winter months. Why? We actually need daylight (& sunlight) to help regulate our Circadian Rhythm. Sunlight also triggers the release of Serotonin – our happy neurotransmitter, and of course Vitamin D.
So, what’s the solution? When you wake up, try to open all your curtains and get as much light into your eyes as possible straight away. If you can go for a pre-work or lunchtime walk outside to do some gentle stretches, this will definitely help!
I know that the weather sometimes won’t allow for this, so we’ve included some helpful goodies in this month’s box to support our bodies & mind during Winter. Including the fabulous Linwoods Flax with Vitamin D & Probiotics and Jetfuel Rest Sachets which value at £20.
You’ll also find Westlab Muscle Spray to help revive tired muscles and aid relaxation, Virtue Drinks for some natural energy if you’re feeling groggy and Chescots Porridge Pots & the Coconut Collab to get your day off to a flying start.
Of course, the box is also packed with handy on the go snacks including POP Peanut Bar, The Protein Ball Co, Shore Seaweed Crisps, Nucao, Miso Tasty, Mister Freed and Teapigs. We hope you love your box!
Lots of love, Alicia xx Lifebox Owner & Curator. Dip-Nut, mBANT, CNHC.
Autumn is fully under way and we’re starting to brace for colder weather and darker days! I’m a huge fan of October – not just because it’s my birthday month – but also because it’s a great excuse for cosy jumpers and hot baths.
As we enter into the colder months of the year, our immune system has to work extra hard to ward off any unwanted germs or bugs that thrive in the chillier weather.
That’s why this month’s Lifebox is an ode to Autumn Wellbeing and we’ve kitted it out with some amazing brands that will help keep you feeling your best as winter approaches.
Starting with an essential nutrient for our immune systems and supporting our mood which can nosedive during darker days – Vitamin D! In this box you’ll find the amazing Better You Vitamin D Spray – take this daily underneath your tongue to feel the effects! You’ll also find the fantastic JetFuel Botanical Blend Tea that comes in three varieties – Immunity, Energy & Rest – & we’re here for all of them!
A very special feature is Phytality Ultana Phytoplankton – one of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet! It is rich in omega 3 and contains a whopping 75 essential nutrients. Check out their recipe on page 4 & 5 to find out how to incorporate it into your daily diet.
The days are drawing closer and the weather is playing us hot & cold. But there’s something I find magical about the seasons changing, with all the green around us gradually becoming beautiful Autumnal shades of red and brown.
As the season changes, so do our nutritional needs.
In Summer, it’s all about cooling foods rich in hydrating electrolytes and carotenoids that protect our skin from UV rays. As the temperature drops, we need more warming foods that help to nourish our body, keep our immune system supported and protect us against any pesky germs hanging around.
Which is why you’ll find the amazing Taka Turmeric Hibiscus Teathat supports, well, just about everything! Turmeric has long been considered a superfood for a reason – it has shown to support healthy immune function and has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties! I’ll give that a go.
