The holidays are my favorite time of year because of all the festivities and awesome food, however it’s also the time of year that most of us deviate from healthy diets or our exercise routines. Just when you’ve made it past the Summer with every intention of working hard to get in shape for next summer, BAM the holidays arrive and it becomes hard to resist all the fantastic meals and treats. From Halloween to December 31st we’re all at risk for indulgence, lol… It’s a bittersweet moment in time really. After giving this struggle some thought I wanted to show you a few really cool healthy snack and dessert options you can try with NatureBox. If you’ve got a dietary goal or taste preference? NatureBox has 100+ snacks to excite and delight every palate.
For this opportunity, I was able to sample the free trial NatureBox options, the free trial box contains one full-sized bag and four single-served pouches. I chose the NatureBox dried cherries, NatureBox carrot strawberry fruit chews, NatureBox coconut cashews, NatureBox toffee almond granola and NatureBox peppery pistachios. I appreciate how NatureBox is setup; NatureBox delivers a world of carefully sourced and nutritionist-approved foods right to your door. So that means you don’t have to drive all around town looking for these great combos or snacks for your holiday parties and events.
Halloween Candy Substitution
While Halloween has just passed, something to think about for next year are options you can hand out to kids or even keep in stash so you don’t eat all your children’s sweets LOL.
I think the NatureBox carrot strawberry fruit chews are a great Halloween cant substitute. They come in cute little pouches so they’re easy to hand out and they taste yummy. I think kids and adults would love it. There are also other flavors available that you can check out here.
Cute Holiday Dessert Options
When I saw the NatureBox toffee almond granola, I immediately thought about my parfait recipe from The Pocket Sous Chef. It’s a yummy healthy option for a dessert and something you dress up easily in a wine glass or cute bowls. I love the taste of toffee soI knew i had to give it a go…. I could honestly sit with a bag of the NatureBox toffee almond granola and eat it all day lol! Yep, it’s that yummy.
As for the rest of my choices; I think the NatureBox dried cherries would make for a great light snack or even something you can puree with juice and other fruit for a frozen treat. The NatureBox coconut cashews would work lovely in a cookie or in a cake, one of my favorite cakes are Coconut Cake, this would make for an interesting play on the classic dessert. And last but not least, I really have to say I enjoyed the NatureBox peppery pistachios thoroughly as is. I’m a big fan of pistachios to begin with but the pepper adds a nice kick, I was thinking you could make a great stuffing with these for your Thanksgiving meal. Or you could just set them out in a big bowl for guests to munch on while they wait for the main course 🙂 With so many options to choose from you’re sure to find something you like from NatureBox!
