Grazing Acefully

When I heard about Graze, a company which provides posh snack packs of tasty, healthy nibbles to pick at whilst at work, I knew I had to try it out.

The concept is wonderful; sign up online and make your way through the ingredients list letting them know which foods you love and hate. Choose which days you want your snack packs and they’ll deliver to your place of work!

The food is superb quality, free from artificial colours, flavours and preservatives and it all tastes delish. I was bowled over by the chewy and sweet dried morello cherries – yum yum yum! Expect to get a good dose of your 5 a day too with fresh and dried fruit in each box.

At just £2.99 including delivery it’s a tastier, healthier and maybe even cheaper option than a big sugary latte and mars bar during afternoon slumps.

You can get your first box half price so why not give it a go?

Spot On

For the past 24 hours I have been chewing, munching, sipping and crunching on snacks.

Snacking is a dangerous eating habit. It’s all too easy to grab a packet of crisps here, a chocolate bar there… before you know it you’ve used up half your daily calorie allowance before lunch time and you didn’t even realise.

Calories Exactly is a range of snacks which proudly and boldly state precisely the number of calories they contain on the front of the packet. You won’t find any obscenely high numbers either.

While Calories Exactly is not diet food, it is portion controlled so you know exactly where you are with your calorie intake without having to be totting up complicated sums in your head over and over again.

What’s more it all tastes great! I absolutely adore the Super Sticky Toffee Choccy (100kcals), which is really chewy and gooey and full of melt in the mouth yumminess. For something savoury I highly recommend the Cheesy Curlies. These light little cheese puffs come in a big and munchable bag  but they’re lovely and light.

Not quite your style? Grab yourself a smoothie instead! Rasberry and lychee is a refreshing yet wholesome start to the day.

Available from Superdrug, Calories Exactly is simple but effective way for anyone to keep an eye on the amount of calories they’re eating. Even if you’re not trying to shed the pounds you’ll fall in love with these scrummy snacks because they are just that – absolutely delicious!

Yummy in my Tummy

I’m indulging my chocoholic at the moment. Luckily I needn’t feel too bad about it as I’m not eating the Estee Lauder chocolate collection and the chocs I am stuffing my face with are apparently good for me, rejoice!!

I’m munching down on organic, vegan, raw chocolate. Yes… RAW. Shazzies Naked Chocolates may look like your standard chocolate bar but they have never been cooked meaning they retain all the goodness they started out with. That means that with each bite your getting a god dose of magnesium, iron, chromium, tryptophan and antioxidants and that can’t be a bad thing.

I have to admit, before I sunk my teeth into one of these babies I was pretty sure it was going to taste horrible but the chocolate is actually very nice. The texture is a little odd – a strange mix of grainy yet creamy, but the taste is wonderful.

It’s quite bitter and seems unusual at first, but I couldn’t stop myself from going back for more. I particularly like the Goddess Bar which is sweet and seems milky (despite being dairy free), I’m sad to say I’ve scoffed the whole bar and am already pining for more.
