This time of year can be killer on your waste line. I am a very guilty of over indulging during the holidays as I am sure a lot of people are. If I don’t make my own healthy snacks and consciously keep the junk away we have a big problem.
My husband is the worst offender of all when it comes to snacking. I am not kidding. His junk food binges are legendary around our family. One time, around Halloween, he ate an entire bag of Starburst. Not the little bag, the BIG bag. He was sick for a week after that. His mom has always joked telling me that nothing in this world is too sweet. That is definitely true for him.
Now that he has started a new job working in an office it has been harder than ever to keep him on the no snack train. I understand that fruit and granola bars can get boring, especially when you eat the same apple every day. As a result, I have been looking into different snack options on Pinterest. When I was pregnant I made my own granola bars, fruit leather and nature bars. Now with the baby and my daughter home so much of the time that seems almost impossible.

In my search, I found a great new option for wives and moms that are just too busy to make their own healthy snack and want something beyond the boring apples and granola, Graze Boxes. They are a healthy option for people who want tasty, exotic, unique snacks that are also HEALTHY! It is really tough to get bored with their snacks because there are SO many to choose from. How awesome is it when good snacks get interesting.
I have decided to get my husband a subscription for Christmas this year. He never reads the blog so I am not worried about him finding out. This way I can surprise him with healthy, yummy snacks all year long. I no longer have to worry about him going to the vending machine for some chips.My husband wants healthy snacks I say, Snack smarter with Graze.

Now, don’t think that I am going to let him have all of the tasty fun. I happen to liken myself to a bit of a foodie. I am willing to try pretty much anything, except green beans. YUCK. I am also a baker so the holidays are nearly impossible for me. Making at least 20 dozen cookies every year, some are bound to end up in my mouth. This year, I cannot wait to try some of the amazing snacks I have found so far. Chocolate and pumpkin spice that are healthy…yes, please! Here are just some of my favorite sounding ones…
Here are just some of my favorite sounding ones…
- Cranberry and Hazelnut Toasts with Rich Cocoa Dip
- Baobab & Raspberry Clusters (don’t know what that is, check it out!)
- Hickory Smoked BBQ – cashews, peas, and roasted corn
- Lemon Drizzle Flapjacks – kind of like granola bars but NOT
- Cocoa Orange Bites with citrus green tea bag – snack and drink in one
Graze also offers a great variety of lunch options. They have Asian soup packs, just add water and enjoy a wonderful soup for lunch. Their bars and snack packs are the perfect addition to any lunch box.
A snack subscription would be perfect for kids because not only do they get new flavors and textures but it is all healthy. My daughter is beyond picky. She is one tough cookie when it comes to anything new. I have found that if mommy or daddy eats it first she is more willing to try. Bonus for me! I cannot imagine her not liking a lot of the snacks on Graze. They also have a wonderful Graze blog you can check out for recipes.
You may be wondering how the snack subscription works. It is pretty simple, you sign up here to receive your first 4-snack sampler box free, plus $1 shipping. Then afterward you will start getting a new 8 snack box every week for just $11.99. This for me makes a ton of sense because we spend more than that each week on snacks. You can discover over 100 nutritious snacks that will excite your taste buds, try finding that in a store. You can eat new snacks every week for a very long time. But I am 100% confident you will find a couple of favorites.
Let’s say you don’t want a new box every week. That is perfectly fine. You can decide how often you want a new 8 snack box. Just manage your subscription. You can also cancel at any time online. That’s right, no annoying phone calls begging you to stay. Just log on and the site can help you cancel. You can but I guarantee you won’t want to.
