Graze Box review.

It’s back to the healthy eating now, ready for bikini weather! One of the main struggles people find when dieting is healthy snacks – it’s easy to get bored of snacking on fruit after a while!

My favourite website for healthy snacking has to be Graze – they’re so imaginative with their snack ideas so you’ll never ever get bored.

I’ve been ordering graze boxes in, on and off, for a year or two now, and I’ve never been disappointed. They’re always adding new choices in and every single one I’ve tried so far has been amazing. In your box, you receive 4 punnets of healthy treats to ‘graze’ on throughout the week. There’s amazing ‘little puds’ and small cakes with tea bags for an afternoon treat. Along side this there’s an amazing selection of nuts and dried fruit and other imaginative concoctions.

I recently started my boxes up again and this week received Cocoa and Vanilla Protein Flapjack, Sticky Toffee Pudding, Texan Corn Salsa and Cherries and Berries. My favourite is definitely the sticky toffee pudding, it’s hard to believe it only contains 1g saturated fat and just 138kcal considering it feels like such an indulgent treat.

It’s always exciting receiving a surprise to open in the post each week/fortnight as well! The best part is that you can scan through the available options and Bin/Try/Like/Love according to your personal preferences, and even select ‘send soon’ on certain snacks so you can have a box tailor made to your taste

If you want to give healthy snacking a try, use code HELM75RXB for a TOTALLY FREE box. You will have to input your card details, however should you wish not to continue with your boxes after you’ve received your free one, you’re entitled to cancel at no cost!

Happy Grazing xoxo

Valentines Baking <3

Since it’s Valentines Day tomorrow, I thought I better do a themed post! Whether valentines has slipped your mind, you want a cheap but sweet gift idea or you want to get creative for your loved one, I’m sure you’ll love the ideas I’ve found below!

We’ll start off easy…..

Strawberry/brownie/marshmallow skewers.
These cute and simple skewers would make a perfect dessert! Pop a strawberry, ready made chocolate brownie and a marshmallow on a skewer and drizzle in chocolate – simple but effective!

White Chocolate Heart Moulds
These are so simple but look really cute and thoughtful. All you have to do is melt some white chocolate and pour it into heart shaped ice cube moulds, sprinkle on some pink and red sweets and voilà! Once they’re cooled, pop them out of the moulds and you’re left with these romantic treats.

Iced Heart Biscuits.
These can be as simple or as intricate as you choose…. Pop to the supermarket for some plain biscuits and get yourself an icing kit, or do it the good old fashioned way and bake them yourself! You could try this recipe if you’re up for a challenge.

Heart Tarts.
Another really cute idea is these little heart shaped jam tarts. Simply roll out some ready made pastry, cut into hearts, add a tiny bit of strawberry jam, place together and bake!

Brownies.
My personal favourites! There’s so much you can do with brownies – white chocolate, milk chocolate, peanut butter, Nutella, Oreo, basically any sweet treat your loved one likes can be added! A really great valentines idea is red velvet brownies… I’ve never tried them myself but I’m sure you’ll agree they look amazing. If you’re feeling really brave and creative why not give this recipe a go today. Right now, I’ve got a batch of my boyfriends favourite chocolate fudge brownies cooling, which I’m topping with Nutella and Love Heart sweets!

So if you need a last minute gift that’s personal and super sweet, head to the super market and get baking!
