Hello, lovelies! I am so pumped today! As you know, yesterday I completed the first workout in Tina’s Best Body Boot Camp, and it was fantastic! I really felt like I was pushing myself instead of just jumping on the treadmill and going through the motions. Today I’m feeling a little bit of that deliciously sore feeling, and I am relishing it. I’m so ready to see where this program leads me.
I have a very special treat for you all today. A few weeks ago, the nice folks at Nature Box contacted me and asked if I would be willing to review their December box on the blog. Free snacks that are healthy to boot? Sign me up! I didn’t hesitate to say yes, and when I arrived home from my trip to Lawton, my beautiful little box was sitting on my doorstep.
For those of you who don’t know, Nature Box is a fairly new company that specializes in healthy snacks. When you sign up for Nature Box, each month you’ll receive a box packed with healthy treats that you can feel great about snacking on. You can sign up on a month to month basis with no obligation. Can’t swing it one month? No problem! However, these snacks are so yummy and the subscription fee so low, I have no doubt you’ll be hooked .
Each month’s box is slightly different so I had no idea what to expect when I tore into it in December. The first bag that caught my eye was this package of dried pears. I’m always a fan of dried fruit, and I recently discovered that I actually like pears so I was curious to try these. They did not disappoint. The pears were light and chewy and not overly sweet.
Next up was the Wild Blueberry Flax Granola. I love granola is all of its incarnations, and this is one of the best flavors I’ve tasted. It reminds me a lot of the Cherry Vanilla granola from Wild Harvest that I love so much. I will definitely be sorry when this is gone.
These masa crackers have an interesting flavor. I wasn’t crazy about them on their own, but they would be good on top of something like chili. Perhaps I’ll try them with my beans and cornbread tonight!
I am very excited about these Power Pistachio Clusters. I’ve only tried a bite, but they were really good and I think they would be perfect to take backpacking. That’s why I’ve only tried a bite-I’m saving them!
Last we have the Lemon Pucker Pistachios, and I can tell you they live up to their name. These little guys pack a little tang! But, since I’m a big fan of lemons and pistachios, I really liked the way the two flavors came together. These will be beneficial on backpacking trips as well!
Nature Box seems like a wonderful company. The snacks are healthy, nutritionist approved, and minimally processed, if at all. In addition to providing all of us with the delicious treats, they also partner with Feeding America. This means that for every box that they sell, they provide one meal for a hungry child. I think that’s a worthy cause!
Nature Box would like to make sure you have a chance to sample their product. They’re offering all you Free Range Human readers 25% off your first month’s subscription!
