Healthy Snacks, Gastroparesis, and Naturebox: A Love Story

I have something to confess: I have a weird stomach. Not weird looking, but in terms of functionality, it’s kind of a wild card.  I mean,on a regular basis it just doesn’t behave like it’s supposed to.  If you want specific details, we can have a whole discussion about ulcerative colitis, gastroparesis, surgery, and other fun stuff. But let’s don’t.

What it amounts to is that working out —  which I have made a commitment to do as part of the Go Green Get Fit Challenge —  can be a hazard for my stomach: eat one bite too much, and I’m overfull and feel like hurling. Don’t eat enough, then I get light-headed and on the verge of falling off my yoga mat.

So it’s always a challenge for me not to simply find time to work out, but to find the right time when I won’t feel nauseus or faint.  It’s tricky, to say the least. I’m always looking for the perfect pre-exercise snack — enough to sustain my energy, but not so much that my stomach feels heavy.

Which is why I was really excited when I found out I was having a NatureBox shipped to me. Naturebox  is really easy to use: you just sign up, and for $19.95 per month, you will have shipped to you a box of 4-6 natural and healthy snacks. Unlike other subcription services, you can cancel, pause, or restart your subscription at any time so you don’t need to worry about being locked in to a commitment.

The snacks that were sent to me were:

  • Sun-Ripened White Peaches
  • Apple Rings
  • Harvest Fruit Granola
  • Organic Mighty Mix
  • Citrus Kick Almonds

I loved everything but my favorite were the Sun-ripened peaches. Even though they were dried, they tasted so fresh and sweet. Plus, since the snacks are carefully selected with the help of a nutritionist, they were perfect for giving me energy to fuel my workout without bothering my stomach.

Do you want to try Naturebox? You can get your first box for only $10! Use code SNACKHEALTHY at checkout. This is a great value, since comparable products at the health store would cost much more.
