low calorie snacks

KalorieBox: Product Review

Snack Attack Volume II will be centered around snacks in a box!  The first Snack Attack post focused on what you can find in the grocery store or put together on your own.  This time it’s a little different. There is a great company who offers to bring tasty, healthy snacks direct to your doorstep and donate a meal to a child in need for each box shipped out.  Here’s what it is:

KalorieBox = a great answer to the snack-attacker with little to no time on their hands—and you’ll be a do-gooder too!  For every KalorieBox shipped, a meal is donated to a less fortunate child in America.

I was very excited to receive my very own KalorieBox, and here’s what it contained:

KalorieBox, inner

Fit Frappe: Fit Frappe is a grab-and-go protein mixture that will provide 20+ grams of protein in addition to your morning cup of joe in a single pack!  If you’re pressed for time or need to fuel up during a long day out, this is an easy way to go—just add liquid (like almond milk!).

Simply Snackin’:  This is not your ordinary jerky!  Meat mixed with fruit?  Delightful!  I received one beef sirloin with pineapple and one chicken with mango and papaya.  I asked my best friend to do a taste test in front of me (since I don’t eat meat), and got the response I was hoping for: deliciousness!  The description: Tender and tasty.  The jerky is gluten free, low calorie (only 60 calories in 1 pack), and high in lean protein.

Plentils chips:  Plentils are made by the “Enjoy Life” brand—a brand I am very fond of that makes fantastic gluten free items.  If you need to have something crunchy and feel like you’re indulging in some chips but don’t want all the extra calories and oil, Plentils are a great go-to item.  There are four flavors they offer: Light Sea Salt, Dill & Sour Cream, Garlic & Parmesan, and Margherita Pizza which is what KalorieBox sent me.  They were YUMMY.  I have tried the light sea salt before and didn’t think much of them.  The Margherita Pizza flavor’s where it’s at!

Stubb’s BBQ sauce:  What a great way to make a simple, plain meal burst with flavor.  Add it to chicken, steak, tofu, or veggies for a healthy, low calorie, tasty meal.  The sauce is only 30 calories for 2 tablespoons.  This too is gluten free—and up until now I didn’t know there was gluten free BBQ sauce available.  I’ve been making my own now for 10 years—what a treat!

Hint Water:  This was right up my alley.  I tend to hint my own water with lemon, so this was such a nice change.  Not overpowering in flavor, no calories, no additives and fake sugars–just a ‘hint’ of flavor that made ordinary old water grand.  Trying to kick the soda habit?  Here’s your chance!
