Healthy snacks from Nature Box
Everyone does it, but do we all make the best choices? Snacking… it’s something that happens everyday, something that helps to tide us over in between meals.
We are very excited to announce a giveaway with Nature Box, makers of carefully sourced and nutritionist-approved snack foods. Not only does Nature Box provide subscribers with healthy alternatives for snacking as a way to foster a healthier lifestyle, they also donate one meal for every box sold to help feed over 14 million children in America who might go hungry otherwise through Feeding America. In 2012, they donated $50K worth of meals. What could be better than feeding your body healthy snack foods and knowing that, by doing so, you are helping to feed hungry children throughout America?
With a customized subscription to Nature Box you will receive a shipment each month of five healthy and delicious snacks that are 100% guaranteed to satisfy any palate.We recently had the opportunity to test the products ourselves. In my shipment, I received the following tasty snacks:
- Wild Berry Bunch (Say goodbye to fruit snacks and enjoy these chewy berries that will remind you of the far-off summer with every bite. Enjoy them on their own or mix into muffins and yogurt.)
I had these tasty little jewels on their own while working away at my desk. The combination of the dried cranberries. golden raisins, dried cherries and dried blueberries has such a delightful balance of sweet and tart. The complexity of flavors proved to be satisfying and energizing.
- Cranberry Almond Bites (These berry bites are one healthy habit that you’ll be able to commit to all year long! Tart cranberries and crispy rice combine to make a satisfying bite-size snack.)
Think rice crispy treats with a healthy twist. Obviously there is no marshmallow to be found, but the compact little squares, loaded with oven-baked almonds, dried cranberries and crispy rice provide a wonderful tart flavor with a perfect crunchy texture.
- Lone Star Snack Mix (Wake up your taste buds with a zesty mix of mesquite almonds, cashews, and peanuts. This snack is perfect if you’re making a conscious effort to pass on greasy potato chips.)
The smoky mesquite seasoning brings a great smoky and salty taste to this snack. The nut medley help to give you that satiated feeling and just a handful goes a long way. My co-workers were clamoring for more samples from me!
- Masa Crisps (When a savory snack is on your mind, reach for a handful of Masa Crisps to satisfy the salty bite you crave without weighing you down. We love these dipped in hummus and sprinkled over a salad or chili.)
The provided description is perfect. A much better alternative to sodium laden tortilla chips. These little guys are the perfect vessel for healthy dips with just enough of a salty taste to satisfy any chip-o-holic!
- Orange Granola Crunch (If eating breakfast every day is one of your healthy eating goals, this Orange Crush Granola will have you looking forward to breakfast before you even go to bed at night.)
My favorite of the lot — though it was pretty tough to choose a favorite. The organic rolled oats, barley, unhulled sesame seeds sweetened with natural agave nectar and pure orange oil were sweet and refreshing. The orange oil brought a great flavor to the snack without being overpowering or artificial tasting. A co-worker said that they tasted like fruit loops! While I tried these on their own, they would be perfect alone as a breakfast cereal or a great topping for frozen yogurt.
