Who doesn’t love snacks? What about HEALTHY SNACKS delivered right to your front door? It can’t get much easier than that. In February I was contacted by NatureBox to see if I would like to try a box of their snacks. I immediately said YES. Super healthy snacks delivered right to my front door sounded right up my alley. Plus, I tend to snack on the same thing day after day (after day after day), so the opportunity to discover new HEALTHY snacks was appealing.
This past Thursday, look what showed up on my door:
I was quite excited. The very first thing I tried was their Whole Wheat Figgy Bar. Sadly, the bars did not get photographed. This is what the NatureBox website says about the Figgy Bars:
Re-think your snack cake dessert and instead enjoy this Fig and Honey bar made with whole wheat flour and juicy figs. Low in fat and sweetened with fruit and honey, these Fig and Honey bars won’t spike your blood sugar or leave you feeling sluggish from too many processed ingredients.
They were super great. Just one figgy bar made for a great snack or quick treat. Think Fig Newtons, but healthy.
The next healthy snack I tried was the Sunshine Chips.
These are FABULOUS. I am serious. Chips are one of my biggest weaknesses. These Sunshine Chips are a great replacement. Healthy, very little fat, and CRUNCHY. Best part? You can read the ingredient list and understand what you are eating. SCORE! I really have to get more of these. Here’s what NatureBox says about the Sunshine Chips:
We know there’s something about crispy potato chips that make them an American favorite. Instead of potato chips that are high in fat, our Sunshine Chips offers a rainbow of vegetables such as sweet potatoes, squash, carrots, taro and green beans as a crispy snack that’s hard to resist. These Sunshine Chips are a better choice when a salty crunch is what you need.
The Firecrackers are very low in calorie and provide a great crunch, but I would love for them to be spicier. But, that’s just me – I like SUPER spicy foods.
If a zesty crunch if what you crave in your snacks, you’ll love our sweet chili Firecrackers made from rice and lightly flavored with soy sauce, garlic and paprika. With no artificial flavors or colors and significantly less sodium than your usual snack cracker from a box, you’ll get a satisfying crunch without all the added ingredients.
I have tasted the Nuts for Granola and Dried Cherries, but haven’t had full servings yet. I am saving them for this weekend. I plan on combining them with some greek yogurt for a great breakfast or snack.
If you go nuts over a bowl of cereal, our Nuts for Granola will give you a hearty dose of the nutrients you need around the clock. This granola is high in fiber and protein to give your snack or meal real staying power. Void of processed and excessive added sugar, we’re nuts for this special granola!
Put down the small wrapped package of chewy fruit snacks or candy and treat yourself to a serving of our not-too-sweet and not-too-tart dried cherries. With no added sugars, these cherries are sweetened only by nature and are a great source of fiber.
