Food Our Bedroom The Victorian House

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.

    I’m intrigued by a lot, but would ultimately go for the baked sweet potato fries. One thing I don’t like, is the website doesn’t allow you to narrow things by gluten free. Gluten conscious and wheat free just aren’t the same – I still have to read the ingredient list!

    Saying that I want to try almost everything seems to broad, so I suppose I will have to choose a few (they all sound amazing).

    The Mango Orange fruit chews sounds delicious. Dark Cocoa Almonds….yes please. Roasted garlic pumpkin seeds. Chocolate quinoa granola. And South pacific plantains…..just to name a few.

    ugggh. I am a relatively new reader of your blog and have not noticed this post style marketing before from you, maybe you did it more in the past? Hope not cause it sucks. Cannot wait to see more of your lovely house but will not read this junk. People who make money from blogging are pretty lucky but must walk the fine line when choosing how to make money from advertisements. IMO, the middle of the blog ads that you already have are pushing it, this is too much, even if it is a supposed give away (which I think a truly good blog should avoid.) All just my opinion,I understand that it can be hard not to milk that cash cow, just try not to squeeze her dry too quickly… or let her shit on your readers.

      it’s the way blog advertising has gone… click back through and you will see product placement posts appear on this site from time to time, and elsewhere too. designsponge did an interesting post about how blog ads are changing/ have to change. get used to seeing more of it… I am personally not a fan.
