Did you think I’d be talking about cows grazing? You’d be wrong. (laughing)
Since we’ve been on the paleo diet, we try to find healthy snacks that we can eat and my son came upon Graze.com. The company is based out of the United Kingdom and was started by 7 friends who wanted to make healthy snacks.
Here is what a recyclable Graze snack box looks like:
Each box comes with four healthy snacks and you can choose the types of snacks that are sent to you. Yes, they are mailed directly to your home weekly at a cost of $5 U.S. a week. There is no contract and you can stop the service any time (make sure you read the terms of service to be sure you know what they are). But, if you’re like me, you’ll look forward to your next box.
Here’s a closer look at the Oatbakes that you see above:
And here’s a picture of an actual item once I removed the plastic:
There are two different boxes to choose from — a light box or a snack box. The light box has lower calorie snacks.
Once a week, we get a box in the mail. I always look forward to what’s in the box. After trialling the snack, you go online and let them know what you think about it. Here’s the statement from the website.
“The food in your box is selected based on your own preferences. For each of our foods, you tell us whether you like, love, or would like to try them. We put together your box based on these ratings ensuring you always receive the food you like.”
Eventually, the snacks are tailored to exactly what you like. This is an easy way to try different things like, say, peppered pistachio nuts. (I didn’t like them but my husband did.)
The idea is so simple and makes snacking a snap! Leave them in your car for a healthy snack while you’re running to and fro. No more McDonald’s french fries or shakes!
In order to try Graze, you need to be “invited” by a current member until the company “launches.” Members are given one “code” to give out.
Unfortunately, we’ve used up our one code. Awwww ….
