Healthy Snacking Made Easy

A few months ago, I started seeing these boxes showing up in the mail room at work. Then, within a matter of days, a couple of my friends posted pictures of them on Facebook. I was intrigued, so I decided to Google what the heck a “Nature Box” was.

Picture healthy, all natural snacks delivered right to your home or office each month—everything from granola to raspberry bars to pretzel bites—and you have Nature Box. I decided to give it a try because I figured I could use some healthier snack options at work. As it turns out, my entire family wanted in on the goods! And I have no problem with my daughter snacking on any of it because I know it’s made of natural, healthy good stuff.

The boxes start at $19.95 a month, which is the size I signed up for. In my first box, I got Lemon Meringue Waffles, Italian Pretzel Bites, Raspberry Bars, Taj Mahal Snack Mix, and Banana Bread Granola. I was expecting almost sample sizes of each item, but I actually got full-sized packages (about the size you’d expect if you bought the same items at Trader Joe’s). There wasn’t anything we didn’t like in the box, and my husband especially loved the Taj Mahal Snack Mix. The Raspberry Bars (kind of like Fig Newtons) were my fav.

If you’re trying to eat low carb, this might not be your best option. But if you’re just looking for quick, easy, healthy snacks for you and/or your family, then I would give Nature Box a shot. It is actually not a bad deal considering what you get in each box. I know my family will be eagerly awaiting our May box!
