Wouldn’t you love to have a box of healthy, delicious and different snacks delivered to your door each month? I know I get in a rut at the grocery store and often pick out the same snacks over and over again. Shopping with 3 kids doesn’t allow me the time to peruse all the food labels on the new snacks, plus most of them are more processed than I’d prefer anyway.
You can put an end to that problem by subscribing to a NatureBox membership. Listen to this genius idea: NatureBox is a by mail subscription service that offers you a box full of healthy snacks delivered to your door each month. You get 4 to 5 full size packages of healthy snacks in that box and the theme changes from month to month so you’re always trying new things! You can choose to do a month to month subscription or pay up front for a 6 or 12 month subscription.
What I also love about this service is their snacks contain no high fructose corn syrup, no partially hydrogenated oils, no trans fats and no artificial sweeteners, flavors and colors. Since we eat about 25% of our calories from snacks, it’s important that we make healthy choices! Another great thing about this company, for each box sent out, NatureBox donates one meal to feed the over 14 million hungry children in America. Pretty great, right?
The box they sent me to try out, included the following:
Zingy Currants- similar in texture to raisins but a little less chewy texture. They are native to California valley and are great added to cereal, yogurt or eaten straight out of the bag. My kids loved these.
Smokey Pumpkin Seeds- a snack high in fiber and phytosterols which help lower your cholesterol and fill you up. Love a crunchy snack!
Peppery Pistachios- I wasn’t sure about the pepper in these at first bite, but when I tried them a second time I instantly became hooked. The act of shelling and eating pistachios helps you slow down and listen to your hunger cues.
Dried Pears- my family loves dried fruit. These were perfect paired with cheese for an afternoon snack.
Cranberry Jubilee- papaya, Brazil nuts, apples, cranberries…a perfect un-sweetened trail mix full of protein and fiber = my ideal snack.
What I love about this Nature Box idea is that 1) you are guaranteed healthy snacks each month 2) you will try new things that you won’t necessarily find in the stores 3) your snacks will change from month to month so you will get a variety 4) Nature Box will share tips and tricks each month on how to feel full by making better choices.
