naturebox healthy snacks subscription service review & giveaway

Recently my family and I had the opportunity to try out NatureBox, a monthly subscription service that delivers a box full of healthy snacks directly to your door! From the moment I began learning about NatureBox, I was so excited to try out the service. If you've been reading this blog for a while, you've probably figured out that I like to keep our household as healthy as possible. As a result, our grocery bills are usually pretty high, especially when it comes to stocking up on healthy snacks at our local health food store. Between my husband who must eat gluten-free and just maintaining a healthy household, it adds up -- especially when it comes to snacks. Did you know that the average American eats almost 25% of their daily calories from snacking? This was just one of the things I learned from NatureBox. One of the other things I learned from them was it doesn't have to cost an arm and a leg to eat healthy. For $19.99 per month, you'll receive 15-20 servings across 4-6 different bags of healthy snacks. Right now, I'm fairly certain we spend double that a week at the health food store. Yikes!

Going into our experience with NatureBox, I was already truly impressed. It was apparent how much the staff cares about nutrition and their mission. For every NatureBox ordered, a meal is donated to feed the over 14 million children who go hungry in America. There is absolutely nothing I love more than a company who is so involved in making life better for everyone and NatureBox does just that. Aside from the satisfaction of knowing you're snacking on guilt-free, whole food snacks, you're also helping to feed the hungry. Is that not wonderful? I certainly thought it was!

I love that each month the boxes are put together by nutritionists. I also love how your NatureBox is completely different each month, giving you the opportunity to try out new, delicious snacks and also making sure you're not bored with the same day-to-day snacks. What else can you expect from your NatureBox snacks? For starters, none of the icky stuff, like high fructose corn syrup, partially hydrogenated oils, trans fats, artificial sweeteners, artificial flavors and artificial colors. You can simply expect quality whole food snacks that have been minimally processed if at all. You can't beat that!

So what did we get in our NatureBox?

Our box contained Pistachio Power Clusters, Umami Roasted Nuts, Big Island Pineapple, Apple Orchards Granola and Toasted Sesame Sticks. Yummy! Some of the items contained glutenous ingredients so my husband had to miss out on some of the snacking since NatureBox does not yet offer customized box options -- but that's okay because we learned that NatureBox is in the throws of creating boxes to suit special dietary needs. This includes gluten-free, nut-free, vegan and low sugar boxes! If one of these boxes better suits your dietary needs, just shoot an e-mail over to info@naturebox.com to be added to their mailing list. They'll let you know when these are ready!

Ethan was particularly fond of the pineapple. I had to hide the bag from him after a while to stop him from dipping in for thirds and fourths. (He'd already come back for seconds!) The other snacks make great options for when you're hungry and dinner is late because your child got his toy stuck in the cat water fountain again and your kitchen is slowly flooding. (What? Just my crazy house?) They're also great for after exercising, when you're in need of something healthy to help you refuel. Ethan and I made sure to share some of our snacks with his gym teachers at My Gym. After all, they're technically the ones doing all of the work during gym class.

There is a photo that exists of my husband trying to get every last crumb out of one of the bags of snacks. I threatened to post it, but I'll let it slide. Let's just say these healthy snacks are most definitely good to the very last crumb.

That's part of the surprise! This giveaway is open to US residents and ends at 12:01 a.m. on October 9th, 2012! Best of luck!
