How to Prevent Unhealthy Snacking from Destroying Your Diet
One of the hardest things in life is sticking to a healthy diet. Experts recommend you plan your meals in advance, so you aren’t tempted when faced with less-than-healthy alternatives. But, let’s face it—planning every meal can be really hard. And, for a lot of us, snacking is our downfall.
The average American eats almost 25 percent of their daily calories from snacking alone, and snacking is the leading cause of childhood obesity.
So, there are two options available: Stop snacking (hard) or snack healthier (simple).
But, for a many of us, differentiating what’s “healthy” and how much to consume are two different things. After all, many nuts are considered heart healthy. But, if you don’t keep the portions in check it can seriously derail your diet. It’s easy to consume double or triple the serving size amount without knowing any better.
If you’re struggling to keep you and your family’s snaking under control and healthy, you may be interested in the new online subscription store called NatureBox.com. They have an innovative new service that focuses exclusively on healthy snacks, delivered right to your front door on a monthly basis.
Here’s how it works:
After you sign up on their website and provide some information about your taste preferences and any special health needs, the company ships you a box every month containing a delicious selection of healthy snack foods. A box includes 12-15 servings across 4 to 5 different NatureBox snacks—enough to last you and your family for a month.
Each box costs just under $20 and shipping is always free. NatureBox is meant to fit your lifestyle by providing you with snacks you’ll enjoy and look forward to eating. You can easily customize what you want to receive based on the snacks you love most, and a typical box might contain:
