The tipping point was when I read this blog post by Mommy Run Faster about overcoming sugar cravings. Each new tip was a smack to the forehead. 1. Drink more water. You would think as a runner I would have this one down. Mmmm not so much. I went one day a few weeks ago without drinking anything. Nothing. All day. 2. Identify your triggers. I struggle the most in the mid afternoon when I'm cleaning up from lunch or after putting the kids down for nap, I find myself going through the pantry and the fridge looking for something sweet.
I decided enough was enough. It's not so much the actual eating that bothers me as much as my lack of self control. I was shoving the cookies down so fast that I wasn't even enjoying them. Not cool.
I had to come up with a plan. More Water. More fresh fruit. Healthier snacks. This is where graze comes in.
graze is this awesome web based company that creates a box of healthy snacks, in sensible portions, and mails them to you. For $5 a box you get these great tasting, healthy, sugar craving quencher snacks and the best part? A lot of the snacks come with chocolate! Just tonight, my husband and I shared a snack of white chocolate, amaretti drops, almond slices, and coconut. It was as good as it sounds.
Currently, graze is by invite only (ooo so exclusive!) and I have 1 invitation code. If you are interested in trying it out, leave me a comment below and I will give you the code. First come, first serve.
