Snacking Healthy around the holidays with Graze Boxes

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.

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.

Give it a try! Tasty snacks by mail.  No GMOs, artificial flavors or colors. Try your 1st box, free!

    1. I think so too. That way when you do indulge you don’t have the same cookie shame!

  5. Oh wow, this looks awesome! I am awful about grazing on chips or other unhealthy snacks, especially this time of year when the treats are abundant! This would make a great gift too!

    1. My mom is giving it to my dad for Christmas. She thought it would be perfect for the two of them. I LOVE the idea and cannot wait for my husband to find out we are getting it for the rest of the year!

    This looks like so fun – I always find snacking hard but especially around the holidays.

  8. I love Graze. They have such wonderful snacks! I try to balance my intake of veggies/fruits with cookies. It’s tough this time of year but I prepare little baggies of veggies & fruits so I can just grab one and go. Convenience is key!

    1. That is very smart. I need to pre-prepare things like that. I would be much more likely to grab and go a little baggy. That is why I love Graze so much the snacks are ready for you when you are.

  9. Reesa Lewandowski

    This sounds like a great way to enjoy snacks! I have seen the commercials for Graze and I should check them out!

    1. Please do! I think the first box free is such an awesome perk and they are really easy to cancel if you don’t love what you get.

  10. I also have trouble with eating healthy this time of year. It is great that they offer such a wide variety of healthier snack choices.

  11. I’m guilty…I am sort of like your husband. Only my entire BIG bag was reese cups. I was sick too. :-/ But It was so good while I was enjoying each little bite. lol. I love the concept of the graze box. Looks like it’s loaded with tasty treats!

    Healthy snacking + holidays don’t always go together lol! But this looks really good! I’ll have to get that freebie!

    I love Graze boxes. There is always such a great variety of snack to try in each box.

    Ooh that snack box looks amazing! I started a snack box in my fridge and pantry at home. Every week I add new things and my kids love it. I only add healthy options and it helps a lot.

  22. These seem like they would be great for appetizers or even dessert. I think they would be a real hit with my family.

  23. I’ve always wanted to give the Graze box a try! I am a huge snacker, so I think it would be perfect for me! Definitely going to have to look into it now 🙂
