Nature Box Review and Giveaway!

I had heard a lot about Nature Box, in the blog world, so I was very excited when Molly contacted me and asked me to do a review of the December box!
What is Nature Box? Well, for $19.95 every month, they choose 5 different healthy, all natural, nutritionist approved snacks to send you. They also donate one meal for every box to help feed the over 14 million hungry children in America. I love that!! You can pause or cancel your subscription at any time.
Here are the 5 goodies that were in my box!
Masa Crisps. These were seriously delicious little crisps! They suggest dipping them in hummus, or sprinkling over a salad or chili. We ate them right out of the bag. They were that good!


Dried Pears. These are nothing but fresh, sun-sweetened pears. They have a soft, buttery texture. Most dried fruit has extra sugars added to them, I loved that these didn't. Delicious!
Pistachio Power Clusters. These made the perfect afternoon snack. They have a touch of sea salt, which makes them a perfect blend of sweet and salty.
Wild Blueberry Flax Granola. These were probably my favorite item in the whole box. I have quite an obsession with my granola/yogurt/fruit parfaits! And these did not disappoint! Packed with blueberries and flax seeds, it was the perfect amount of crunch!

Lemon Pucker Pistachios. I didn't even get a picture of these, because my son took them so fast! I did have one though, and they were my least favorite. I love pistachio's, but not when you add lemon to them! But my boy sure did like them!

Want to try Nature Box for yourself? They are offering my readers 25% off your first month's subscription! Use Promo Code PISTACHIO to receive this discount.

  1. I plan on tracking my water consumption, especially on the weekends. That's when I usually slack off but I always feel so much better when I'm totally hydrated!

  2. I have a few healthy steps that I'd like to take this year, but the biggest one is NO POP! I went pop free for years in my youth, but when I was pregnant with each of my children, I craved the pop and never gave it up afterwards. I'd only have a can here or there, but I never liked how it made me feel afterwards. I've decided that starting this year, I will drink NO pop whatsoever! And this is just the start from here on out, no pop at all! I need my calories to be healthy each day! I do not need the added junk!

    1. Wow, good for you, Carie!! I was really addicted to diet cokes before going on this juice fast. But now it's been 2 weeks, and I'm going to try my best not to have another one! I don't like being addicted to them!

  23. I used to barely be able to walk in place for 10 minutes without being out of breath...I know, pitiful right. Since the begining of the year I slowly pushed and added minutes until I can do around 25 minutes now, and I do this twice a day. I think it's the small steps that lead to big achievements so one thing at a time to a healthier lifestyle, and glorious results should be achieved. Very proud of you Katie!!

  24. I am going to stick to my 6 day workouts and not let anything get in the way of it, even if I have to get in at 10pm. I love to try new foods and the foods I have tried so far I have stuck with them.

  26. Since losing 35lbs since October, I signed up for the 5k diva dash and committed to being in. the gym or doing a workout video at home or walking with my son who's 8 and loves working out with me, so it motivates me and instills a healthy lifestyle that will stick with him forever.
