A few months ago I saw an ad on Spotify for Graze, a company that sends healthy snacks right to your door (or mailbox).
I was seriously considering signing up for one, but just never got around to it. Finally, a few days ago I saw another ad for Graze, and decided to go for it! I researched their snacks online and set my preferences (this is so fun!), and send in my order for a small box to be delivered once every two weeks.
And this past Monday, sure enough, guess what I picked up from the package centre?!
Included in my Graze box were:
- apple and cinnamon flapjacks
- smoky bbq corn
- strawberry shortcake
- salted fudge and peanut cookie
Judging by the fact that I finished all of the snacks last night, I was a fairly big fan. My favourite snack was the “flapjacks”, which are basically chewy oat bars. I would most definitely order those again!
Yesterday’s lunch started off a little backwards, since I actually began with dessert!
How could I resist these cookies?! They were about 3/4 cooked (which is the perfect consistency), so they fell apart in your hands, and melted in your mouth. Yum.
I followed up my little appetizer which something a little more nutritious. In the mix:
- lentil salad
- green salad with tomatoes
- orange chicken breast
- sautéed peppers and onions
- broccoli and green beans
AM: Vinyasa Yoga: I’m so happy that our team is back to Tuesday morning yoga! This is great for 2 reasons: 1) It means that the team pays for it, and so I don’t have to, and 2) It takes all of the decision-making/questioning/debate out of going. Oh and a 3rd reason, it gets my Tuesday off to a great, productive start :). After the yoga session, I grabbed a quick breakfast and then headed to the training room to do a little rehab for my knee, which consisted of a bike warmup, stretching, and foam rolling.
PM: Spin + Squash: Since my knee was feeling pretty decent yesterday, I was allowed to play for 20 minutes! Following a 30 minute spin, Rachel and I did some drills and played a couple of games. I felt kind of awkward and slow, which I think is partly due to the fact that I haven’t really played in a week and a half, and perhaps because I am slightly cautious.
Breakfast this morning consisted of 2 Mango Chobani Greek yogurts, as well as a breakfast pita!
My breakfast pita was topped with 2 eggs, spinach, tomatoes, and a little bit of cheese. It was a nice change from my usual omelette, but could have had a little more flavour. I think it would be fabulous with pesto!
Alrighty that’s all from my end! Today I’m taking it easy on the impact side of things, and am going to solo hit, lift (upper body), and teach my spin class. I’m happy to say that my knee isn’t hurting, however there still is some swelling. Weird!
Have you ever tried Graze, or any other kind of snack box?
Do you like melted cookies?
