If you have been reading here for any length of time, you know that I have *slowly* been making my way towards a vegan diet. One of the problems I face with vegan eating, is trying to come up with quick snacks. Yes, I can make a green smoothie, or a salad, or cut up a bunch of veggies to eat with some white bean and garlic dip; but none of that is very quick, and inevitably uses a lot of dishes that I don't feel like washing! Then I was introduced to Healthy Surprise
Healthy Surprise is a snack subscription service. They have 4 different box sizes that range in price from $33/month for their Starter Box to $333/month for their Super Box. They were kind enough to send me their Healthy Box to review, which is $66/month. According to their website, the Healthy Box provides 32-40 servings, giving enough snacks for 2-6 people for a month.
I have to tell you, I was so excited to receive this box. We don't live anywhere close to a whole foods, and to have access to quality vegan and gluten free anything...let's just say I have to do a lot of cooking and ordering online. To find something as easy as this, with such variety was amazing. And when the Fed Ex man knocked on my door, the box definitely did not disappoint. Some of the snacks we received were:
*Gone Nuts! Thai Lemon Curry Cashews, Almonds & Coconut
*Skinny Crisps Cinnamon Crisps
*home free Crunchy Vanilla Cookies
*oskri Coconut Bar with Cherry
*Happy Hemp - seriously good for my green smoothies!
My entire family took part in sampling these snacks, and there wasn't one that we did not all like. Please keep in mind that I have a 4 year old and 22 month old. I thought for sure the Thai Lemon Curry nuts would have them running from me scared, they gobbled them up. Although, I think my 22 month old liked the flax snax pizza crackers the best.
The fact that all of these snacks are vegan and gluten free is a huge plus. It is hard to be able to afford the kind of variety that was provided in this box. I wouldn't hesitate to subscribe to this service in the future. These snacks are easy to grab, have ingredients you actually recognize, are healthy, and all taste amazing. I didn't feel guilty eating anything in this box. And for someone who used to always grab cheese or candy when I needed a snack, this made me feel better overall.
