So a few weeks ago, you may remember that I decided to stop the Food Friday posts. This doesn't mean that I am no longer on the healthy eating band wagon or that I have given up trying to find new healthy alternatives. With this in mind and having watched Brogan Tate's video regarding her first Graze Box, which if you haven't seen her videos you should check them out!
I have always been a bit sceptical when it came to the Graze Box, because, whilst I thought it is great value for money, if I didn't like the items they sent me, I would be wasting my money. In my mind, I thought it would just be some nuts and dried fruit but it is so much more than that. Over the last couple of months, I have found myself raiding the cupboards to find something to snack on whilst I'm either watching TV or editing videos. With the only things I could find being chocolate biscuits and crisps, I knew I was ruining my hard work achieved at the gym. When I went onto the Graze Box website to have a look, I saw that there is over 100 different snacks available which all looked amazing.
So I decided to take the plunge, and whilst eating yet more chocolate biscuits, I set up an account and ordered my first box. With so much choice, I needed to make sure that I didn't just stick to the things I knew I would like. The first thing I had to decide was which out of three boxes I would like to receive - the variety box, the light box which contains snacks all under 150 calories each or the protein box for those with busy lifestyles. I decided to select the variety box and then entered all my personal details. This is the where you have the opportunity to say how often you receive the box - I have chosen to have a box each week at the moment, but may change it to every two weeks during December & January so that I can enjoy to festive treats. That is one of the great things about Graze Box - its flexible and fits around your needs. You can pause your box if you feel like you are going through a period of not needing the snacks and you can also tell them when you are going on holiday so that you don't get charged and receive your boxes whilst you are away.
As I mentioned above, I was slightly concerned that I would order a box and not like any of the contents, but I needn't have worried because the people at Graze Box had already thought this through with this next step. After telling them of an allergies you have, you then select any types of food that you don't like. With this step, I was able to tell them that I couldn't have Gluten and that I didn't like nuts or olives. Because I had told them this, when it went onto the next step, items that contained any of these three things were binned so that I wasn't sent something I couldn't have. This next and finale step is where you look at the items that are available to send to you. You can look at each product and choose to do the following: Bin, Try, Like, or Love and you also have the option to tick the Send Soon box if something has really caught your attention.
With all that hard work now done, which lets face it, it was just a few clicks of a button, you can sit back, relax and wait for your box to arrive through the post. It fits straight through any letterbox, so it means even if you are out and miss the postman, you still have your box on time. Without further ado, I thought I would show you what I received in my first Graze Box.

Onto the snacks (Unfortunately I ate one of them before I took a photo so there is only three)
As you can seen, the packaging tells you how many calories are in each snack as well as if they are high in protein or fibre. These are also great to pop inside your handbag, which I have found especially helpful for either finishing work or being out shopping and being a bit peckish. If you are interested in purchasing the Graze Box to try, I have voucher code - DCMTHTYKP - This will get you your 1st, 5th & 10th box free and you can cancel it at any time.
Until next time
