Graze Boxes:Are they any good???
I have tried all the diets, Weight Watchers, Slim Fast, Slimming World, and lots of others too, and yes I lost the weight whilst on the diet, but once my weight plateaued then I would just gain the weight back and more. I am the first to admit, I love my cakes, and would eat them from breakfast, lunch and dinner if I could, but I do restrain myself and try to only have them once as a treat during the day. For breakfast, I eat cereals and fruit, for lunch, I just have a sandwich and then for dinner, I have a calorie controlled meal, so I don't think I do too badly.
Except, and it is a big except, I snack, and with having a little boy who loves, biscuits, crisps, and sweets, this is my greatest fall down, as it is just so easy to finish the bag of crisps he has left on the chair, and oh, I fancy a cuppa, well, it would be rude not to have a biccie to dunk in it. Then the one biscuit turns into 4 or 5 biscuits, and my good behaviour gets ruined all in one fell swoop.
That is why, I thought I would try the Graze box, as they all contain 4 equal portions of healthy snacks. So when you feel yourself reaching for that odd biscuit or packet of dry roasted peanuts, you can just grab one section of the box and snack away knowing that it is healthy and good for you, and there is no guilt involved.
But on the other hand, I have loved nearly everything else, you get lots of cheesy nibbles, and dried fruit which I love, and nuts and even chocolate covered honeycomb which is delicious. In this fortnights box, I received the lemon curd flapjack and it was beautiful. Can't wait to receive that again in a future box.
Also, included in the box is a leaflet, giving you all the nutritional elements of each little portion, so that you know that everything you eat is healthy and good for you. It also lists the best eaten before dates, because they are all fresh foods, and so it gives you an idea of what you should eat first and then last, without having to worry that the little portions will have gone bad before you get the chance of getting round to eating them.
So, if you feel like you would like to try Graze, I have a referral code that will get your first box free. Its ZOEA3G4WP, just enter that on the online form, and you will get your chance to try their healthy snacks.
*I am not in anyway affiliated with Graze and am definitely not being paid for this review. I just genuinely enjoy their Graze boxes and think that my readers would like them too, on our daily battle to live much healthier lives.
I hope you enjoyed this post, and let me know if you have tried the Graze snack boxes and what you think of them.
Till next time,
