Keeping Snacks at Hand

This is my view when I wake up every morning. My ‘bubble’ water bottle (twee heart with a secret snarky message, ha!), prenatal vitamins (because I’ll forget if they aren’t right there), a constantly changing stack of things to read, an alarm clock, and a snack.

Bedside Table


I’ve been keeping a snack by my bedside because while most of the queasiness of early pregnancy has passed by now, I feel better if I keep a little something in my stomach. For a while it was the Dark Cocoa Almonds from NatureBox, but lately I’ve been preferring their Blueberry Almond Bites. Of course the kids don’t understand why I get to break the ‘no food upstairs’ rule; they want to keep their favorites in their rooms, too.

Bedside Snack

And we do all have our favorites! NatureBox is a subscription service with free shipping that delivers healthy snacks monthly. We switch up our choices sometimes, but Eleanor also likes the Blueberry Almond Bites, Brandon is partial to the Santa Fe Corn Sticks, and August is happy to have some Cherry Berry Bonanza.

  43. Susan May 28, 2014 at 2:06 pm #

    Oh! So much of it looks great! I think I’d end up having to go the twenty bag route! Ha ha ha. I want to try everything, and with seven in our family, we’d need multiples of some things. Every single granola variety sparked my interest, the fig bars for sure, my husband would be all for every Asian inspired item… And definitely I’d have to try your favorites. Yummy!

  44. Becky May 28, 2014 at 2:09 pm #

    Coffee kettle corn? My two favorites in one glorious snack? Yes, please!

  45. Kara O May 28, 2014 at 2:09 pm #

    I’ve been dying to try Naturebox! Especially since my daughter is starting pre-K in the Fall and I have to start packing lunches – would looooovvvvvee to have some healthy (but yummy!) goodies to include. I’d love the sea-salt checkpeas, but she’d love the cocoa waffle wafers more.

  46. Mallory Snyder May 28, 2014 at 2:11 pm #

    I’m pregnant too and due around the same time as you! I too have found I have to snack, but I’m just not a snack person – so NatureBox sounds perfect. I’d love to try the Bombay Curried Cashew mix!

  49. Carolina May 28, 2014 at 2:16 pm #

    South Pacific plantains please!

  50. Nancy May 28, 2014 at 2:16 pm #
