Earlier this week, I noticed someone on twitter talking about their graze.com () box. Being the curious person I am, I decided to go ahead and find out what this was.. turns out it’s a new way to have lunch at the office. Each day, they send you a box in the post, with 3 punnets of fruit/nuts/seeds/etc to graze on throughout the day, instead of having a sandwich.

One of my many flaws is I am a terrible snacker. I like to nibble on things and prefer this to a lunchtime sandwich, so my office eating is bad. Packs of crisps, chocolate bars, biscuits, that kind of thing. Blood sugar highs & lows! So my immediate thought was that this service could really work for me. I’ve tried buying fruit at the supermarket but I forget to pick it up, it’s often not very good quality, and it only stays fresh a few days.

I got my first box this morning and it’s gorgeous. Juicy cherry oranges, roasted pistachios (one of my fav things) and dried strawberries. I’ve had a nibble of each and the quality of the food is very high - it’s all very yummy and good for me! :heart:

Each box costs £2.99, and they can delivery Tues-Sat. I did the maths, and to have 4 boxes a week will cost me about £50 a month.. this sounds like a lot but when I take into account the amount I spend buying snacks to eat at work, on sandwich fillers, sliced meat that never gets finished, and on buying unhealthy sandwiches from the cafe, it’s not that much money. Even if i will be paying ~£10 more than I usually do on eating at work, I think the quality of the food, the fact I will be eating healthily and that it will make my lunches easy to sort out make it worth that. I hate making sandwiches for work and they never taste very nice by the time lunchtime rolls round, especially as I’m not that keen on sandwiches in the first place!

So, from now on, every Tues - Fri I will be getting my graze.com box in the morning post at work. I wonder how long it will take the other girls to notice!
