Naturebox Giveaway!

Last month, the kind folks at Naturebox contacted me to see if I’d be interested in receiving a box of healthy snacks to enjoy. Have you heard of Naturebox? Each month they put together a box full of healthy, delicious snacks that show up on your doorstep- for just $19.95/month! The snacks change each month, but are always good for you and taste great. When my box arrived, I eagerly tore it open to find out what was inside:

The “December” box included Pistachio Power Clusters, Dried Pears, Masa Crisps, Wild Blueberry Flax Granola and Lemon Pucker Pistachios. I immediately sampled each one of the snacks…. and I loved them all! Especially the masa crisps. And the pistachio clusters. And the granola…. and, yeah, I can’t pick a favorite.


(Photos from the December box. Are you drooling yet?)

The thing that I like the most about this service is that it introduces me to healthy snacks that I may have not heard about otherwise (like Masa Crisps!). All of the snacks are made with ingredients that I approve of (and are nutritionist approved) and they offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee. You can also cancel your membership at any time (but, I have a feeling that you won’t want to). Please note that Naturebox is not currently able to customize boxes specific to dietary needs.

If you’re interested in trying out Naturebox yourself, you can use the code PISTACHIO for 25% off your first month’s subscription (please note that the 25% discount is only applicable to the month-to-month subscription. 6 month subscriptions receive 1 month free and 12 month subscriptions receive 3 months free!).

Pay attention here:

Naturebox has offered to give one very lucky reader a free box of goodies to enjoy! Keep in mind that you will not be receiving the same box of snacks that I got in December, as the contents change each month. All you have to do to enter is a leave a comment below letting me know about a “unique” healthy snack that you’ve recently discovered. It doesn’t have to be anything completely off the wall- just something new to you!I’m always looking for new ideas.:)

* Naturebox provided me with a box of healthy snacks to review. Opinions are my own.


  1. I love eating homemade kale chips!

  2. I found these Hail Merry Vegan Macaroons! They are amazing!

  3. Not super original, but I finally tried the Blue Diamond Dark Chocolate Almonds and they are so great!!

  4. This isn’t off the wall at all but others mentioned it seems weird. Broccoli dipped in spicy guac has been a fave of mine for a few weeks :)

  5. Latest is something I’ve seen on one of the blogs I follow (maybe even yours?). Again nothing too fancy but roasted chick peas! Been trying it with different spices I have in the pantry. thinking I may try a batch with cinnamon or chocolate on them next for a sweeter treat.

  6. Love Wasabi peanuts and dried fruit together!

  7. Protein balls made of almond butter, protein powder and some honey in a food processor. So good.

  8. I can’t think of anything that’s super original, but I like making little mugs of muesli, mixing together yogurt, oats, and some fruit

  9. And I tweeted :)

  10. I love to mix Trader Joes wasabi peas with raisins for a sweet, salty, spicy snack. I’d love to win this snack box!

  11. I recently discovered roasted chick peas. I love em! So delicious to pop and also top salads!

  12. Caitlin F. says:

    Plain greek yogurt + Peanut flour + cinnamon + honey= Perfect dip for apples. Goes a lot farther for fewer calories & more protein than regular old pb & apples.

  13. my new favorite snack is blueberries and peanut butter! i just mix them in a little bowl and gobble them up..yum!

  14. I like to stuff dates with pistashios. Such a good little snack. Dried unsweetened mango is awesome too!

  15. My favorite healthy snack that I’ve recently discovered is cacao nibs. Addicted.

    Also, I tried maca powder. I’m trying to find a way to use it but I can’t get past the weird bitter aftertaste. I made balls with peanut butter and plant fusion vanilla, and they’re butterscotch-y, but finish weird. :/

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  16. And I tweeted, or twat, if you will.

  17. I recently discovered the advocare shakes….I love them!! Chocolate :) MMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!

  20. Oh my gosh this is a great giveaway!! woooooo!
    Recently at whole foods I found lentil chips– I bought the salt and vinegar flavor ones and they are delicious! I now keep a bag in my car for those times I get stuck in traffic near dinner-time to hold me over :) Low carb, high fiber snack… yum! I wish I had a twitter for additional entries :( — one day soon ha. Thanks lovely!

  21. This week I’ve been snacking on a combination of quinoa and hummus. I wanted both, I couldn’t decide, I put a bit of each on a plate and mashed them together and dude it is delicious (better with the curry-scented quinoa I made, not as great with chili powder).

  22. I’ve been eating plain chobani with thawed strawberries and a few almonds. So simple, delicious, sweet/creamy/crunch, and no crazy ingredients.

  23. Blessie Nelson says:

    I recently found hummus and use it instead of cheese or mayo on my s/w to cut down calories and increase protein in my diet.

  24. Blessie Nelson says:
  25. I’ve been loving adding goji berries to my snack of mixed nuts. Different than raisins, I’m totally digging their texture! :)

  26. I enjoy stuffing a spoonful of peanut butter inside a juicy Medjool Date! Thanks!

  27. Today I microwaved a sliced apple with a sprinkle of cinnamon and dollop of peanut butter. I only thought to microwave it because it was frozen (oops!) but it ended up being DELICIOUS!!

  28. I recently discovered the beauty and deliciousness of a Medjool date… for both baking and snacking. Hits the sweet spot every time!

  29. I love oatmeal mixed with vanilla protein powder and cinnamon! Makes a cinnamon bun flavored snack that is high in protein and sustaining!

  30. Pretty boring, but I like nut butter on rice cakes! Putting chocolate chips on them makes them even yummier!

  32. i’ve been obsessed with pop chips lately! a much healthier potato chip. my fave flavor is thai sweet chili.

  35. I tweeted :)

  36. Someone at work brought in blue diamond coconut almonds. I liked them, but I prefer the wasabi flavored ones.

  43. I recently discovered APPLES as a snack. Most simple/healthy thing ever and they never fail to fill me up!

  44. My current favorite snack is cold roasted squash or turnips, occasionally dipped in mustard or hummus. [I'm a weirdo, what can I say.] Although, after school, pre-gym/run I tend to eat oatmeal…I have found it to be the most consistently perfect fuel for my body at that time of day. :)

  45. I recently bought some lean protein shakes from GNC. Only 170 calories but it helps to drink it on my way home from the gym so I don’t walk in the house and eat everything in sight!!!!

  46. I love The Simply Bar Protein Chips! I had never tried them before, and now I’m hooked.

  47. Tweeted!

  48. Its strawberry season here and today I had a delish bowl of cottage cheese, strawberries, some cheerios and kashi cereal, and a ton of cinnamon (:

  69. I just discovered apple sauce & raisins combined. Why it took me so long to discover, I have no idea!

  70. Justin’s Maple Almond Butter..yum! Great on a crisp brown rice tortilla, rice cake, apple, wheat toast and much more!

    I have been all about chia pudding lately. I make different versions (some with fruit, some with cocoa powder for a chocolate post-dinner treat and it is absolutely delicious.

  74. Ttrockwood says:

    Right now i love edamame for savory and my own mix of puffins, raisins, choco chips and sunflower seeds

  75. My new favorite treat is a peanut butter-banana “ice cream”! PB2, frozen banana chunks, unsweetened almond milk, an ice cube or two, plenty of cinnamon and a little nutmeg. Sometimes I’ll throw either a serving of chocolate chips or some salted nuts in after it’s blended for some yummy texture.

  76. Oh man… I loved those pears and the clusters!! Wasn’t that a fun box??

  77. Jillian Richardson says:

    I LOVE the odwalla super protein bars- really filling, vegan, and 14 g of protein to boot!

  78. Jillian Richardson says:
  79. My “unique” healthy snack is pumpkin chia pudding! I just started making it and it is a weird consistency (like tapioca pudding) but very good for you. The proportions are 1/4 c chia, 1/4 c pumpkin puree, and 1 c almond milk (vanilla is best). I find that it doesn’t need to be sweetenend, but you can also add vanilla extract or honey for more flavor! It just has to refrigerate for around 30 min so that the chia seeds can “gel.”

  80. I love eating 100-cal greek yogurt with a cup of Fiber 1 cereal – gets me super full!

  81. I’ve recently started eating sunbutter and I really love it.

  82. I love Cinnamon Millet and Flax Chips from Sammi’s Bakery! I’ve only found them at Ellwood Thompson’s in Richmond, VA but they are soooo good!!

  83. I recently saw a recipe for Cinnamon Coconut Apples that I can’t wait to try. Saute apples in coconut oil and sprinkle with cinnamon…yum!

  84. Probably not that “unique” to others, but I just started dipping my carrots in nut butter. So good!

  85. I am loving roasted chickpeas – especially adding them to my salad.

  86. I recently discovered kale chips!! I am addicted! The possibilities are endless!

  87. Adding citrus and pears to my salad!

  88. cherry tomatoes, I can eat a full package in one day so I have to ration it!

  89. I tweeted! @snacksnarkbark

  90. I really like chocolate covered goji berries!

  91. Love nuts!

  92. I love trying new granola and my husband loves wasabi peanuts

  93. Brandi black says:
