One of the positive things about getting injured is that it gives me a nice push to clean up my eating. I am a HUGE candy person (I think deep down I would choose candy over any other type of junk food/dessert) and I tend to go a little overboard with it. An injury is always a nice reminder to myself of the importance of taking care of my body in so many different ways (sleep/food/stress levels/stretching etc) and this time around I am focusing on removing the constant candy snacking and replacing it with items free of artificial junk and full of simple ingredients.
The thing that will help me the absolute most with cutting back on candy is always having snacks that are: a) ridiculously delicious b) easily accessible that can go everywhere with me. I’ve always had a mouth full of sweet teeth and so for me I really enjoy having something sweet each day but I’m working towards finding the best options to fulfill my cravings.
I wish I could remember why Brooke is giving me the evil eye in this picture but I can’t.
NatureBox is going to help me out BIG TIME with this new goal of mine to cut the candy and fill up on snacks made from high quality ingredients. They make it so easy for me to grab something and go! These dried pears (one ingredient—> pears) are perfect to munch on while Brooke goes down a slide 40,000 times in a row.
NatureBox is a snacking company that helps you to make easy snacking both delicious and smart. Everything is made from high quality ingredients free of artificial junk (like high fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated oils, artificial colors/flavors/sweeteners). They deliver right to your doorstep and you choose the box size (either 3 or 5 snacks per box) and how often you get your box (1 time a week, 2 times a month or once a month). You get over 100 snacks to choose from and each month they add new options to try out! They have everything from healthy to indulgent and you can choose what you want in your box or sometimes I like to tell them what I like (i.e. sweet/spicy/vegan, non-gmo etc) and they will choose recommendations for you of what they think you will love! You can check out their snack catalog HERE!
Yesterday I had a crazy strong craving for something sweet and this mix hit the spot and I felt so much better after eating this compared to snacking on junk. Mini cocoa belgian waffles, dark chocolate berry trail mix, greek yogurt, raspberries and blackberries.
The time that I love to snack the most is whenever I am at my computer. Two things (snacking and working) go hand in hand for me especially if I am writing a post late at night. This white cheddar caramel popcorn has been the perfect working snack. Now just to figure out how to avoid getting crumbs stuck inside of my keyboard;)
Here’s to making better snack choices each day and getting stronger and healthier along the way as I recover from this toe issue.
