Well as I said yesterday … I don’t normally celebrate Valentine’s Day with chocolates, flowers and other themed gifts but here was the surprise that landed on my doormat today!
Mr B had noted a couple of months back that I really liked a box of special snacks that arrived for review. The box contained a selection of 14 healthy snacks including nuts, berries, popcorn, bars, crisps and other products that are all portion controlled to be under 120 calories per pack. I was very taken with them.
I don’t have any problems with devising my main meals (you may have noticed!) but I do sometimes struggle to find some healthy snacks in small portions that self-regulate my tendency to over indulge. Yes I know I can buy big packs of some of these items but weighing them, portioning them out and resisting the urge to have just a few more can sometimes be just too demanding and enticing (I know where they are stored!). I found that my Super Skinny Saviour Snack Box, gave me the variety I yearned for, in a portion-controlled way, and in a convenient (yet indulgent) way through the postbox.
A typical box looks like this and meets my 7 nutritional non-negotiables for snacks of:
* no trans fat * no hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated fat * no artificial additives, colours or preservatives * no genetically modified foods * no high fructose corn syrup * no MSG *and only real ingredients that you can pronounce!
There are a good number of variations to choose from, more than just the Skinny one, and you can purchase just a single snack box or make a regular order. Mr B ordered the special Valentine one for me which had a red theme and contains such treats as a Pecan Berry Mix; Strawberry Crunch Bar; Chilli and Oregano Olives and Lovebite Balls (which I will share with Mr B!).
I have been in touch with Saviour the good food snacking people who produce and deliver these and they tell me you can order a first snack box (not the Valentine’s of course, too late for that) at the special price of £4.95 if you use the special code COOKERY which they have kindly organised for bariatric cookery visitors.
