As I mentioned in my last post, I'm trying to eat better. We're drinking green smoothies every day and eating vegetables with every dinner. I avoid wheat for two meals a day, and I'm only doing dairy once a week (pizza is still one of my core food groups). I eat fruit and raw veggies for most of my snacks, and with all these changes, my gut is definitely happier. I still haven't mastered no-need-to-poop-while-running, but there is improvement. I haven't had an accident in weeks! I wish I were kidding.
At work I sometimes get procrastination-hungry. You know, where you would rather find a snack in a faraway snack machine than start on that next PowerPoint. But part of this new healthy eating path is visiting-the-snack-machine-less. Fewer Pop-Tarts! Will I live? Yes I will, especially since I found out about Graze.
Graze is a web-based service that sends you an adorable and very tasty "nibblebox" once a week for $5. You can specify special diets or foods to avoid, and you can rate the snacks on their website, which by the way is awesomely usable and cute. I got my second box today, which you can see below, and I'm really excited to try everything. I already ate one of the snacks, which were spicy crackers that got a "love" rating immediately after I inhaled them. If you get something you don't like, you can just "trash" it and you'll never see it again. So far everything I've tried has been either "like" or "love". They have these granola bar things they call flapjack, which I would give a "marry" if I could.
Graze isn't available to just-anyone yet, but if you are feeling extra-special (and hungry), you can sign up using my code, THY5ZF5T. Your first box is free, and I get $1 off my next box too, lucky me. I have no affiliation with Graze, I just love it and thought you might too!
So far in 2013 I have visited the snack machine exactly once, for Fritos. Sometimes you just need some greasy salty corn. But most of the time it's fruit, veggies, and Graze.
