Healthy Snacks on the Go

One of the frustrating things about eating while travelling, especially on a road trip, is finding healthy options for snacks. So I was thrilled when Vancouver-based startup Snackbox reached out to me to try one of their boxes.

Snackbox is a monthly subscription of healthy, natural and delicious snacks. Each month they ship 10 - 12 items to members across Canada through Canada Post. This month they sent me the following items:

Gobi Spice: Arora Creations
Quinoa Skinny Crackers: Enerjive
Green Tea: Oi Ocha
Pear Slices: Bella Viva Orchards
Toffee Coconut Dark Chocolate: Cocolico
Fruit & Nut Medley: La Fourmi
Veggie Straws: Sensible Portions
Bluberry Smoothie: My Smoothie
Cheese Puffs: Pirate's Booty
Banana Chocolate Protein Bar: True to Nature
and a Lara Bar

What I like best about the service is that all the items are handpicked by their nutritionist and your packet includes information about which stores carry the product. So if you get a snack you particularly like, you know where to buy it again.

Snackbox has graciously offered all Full Belly, Worn Soles readers $15 off their first Snackbox. (First time, Canadian buyers only) Just enter the code FULLBELLY at checkout. They offer 1, 3 and 6 month subscriptions and the code is valid until 12/31/2013.

    1. Definitely! Sometimes it seems so much easier to reach for junk, but if you have some good snacks on hand, the temptation is gone.

    1. Ha. I'm always frustrated about American companies that don't ship to Canada! I'm sure you could find something similar in Europe though.
