The boyf can be a bit of a nag, as he’s on my case about eating properly as sometimes I get so caught up with work or feeding the kids, I ‘forget’ to take care of myself. Graze is an online service that specialises in sending healthy food by post, sending you a nutritionally balanced box that can be personalised to your tastes, rocking up on the day(s) you prefer. My friend Ali has been snacking and raving about them for months, then BG’s hot tipster Sine mentioned that she was grazing, then BG writer Lu’s been grazing too, so I ‘succumbed’ to the action.
Choose what type of box you’d like – there’s a choice between a grazenibble box which has four punnets of nuts, seeds, dried fruit or other natural treats, or the grazefruit box (my choice) with a big punnet of fresh fruit and two other punnets. You can be specific or go through the list of items and mark what you like to try, already like or love, or mark off stuff you never want to get. It’s Â£2.99 a box including delivery, the first one is half price and if you tell your peeps about it, you get discounts off your own boxes.

I got home on Wednesday and my first one was waiting for me. Despite actually returning from lunch, I grazed on juicy pineapple chunks (decent sized ones too), those Japanese nutty/snacky things (correct term is paper tiger), and apple strudel (dried fruit pieces) and cleaned off the lot before the kids got back. Today, not so lucky. The box arrived with chunks of apple, Korean chilli rice crackers and an Americas nut mix and the kids were badgering me!
If like me, you work from home and don’t get to enjoy tea runs and frequenting snack and lunch haunts as much, or you’ve found yourself feeding the kids like kings and queens but forgetting yourself, a Graze box is a sweet treat.
