U Chic Approved: Nature Box

By Megan O'Connell, Student at UW-Platteville

As a college senior about to graduate, I am in the middle of one of my toughest semesters I have ever had. Due to this, I have not been able to work my normal part-time 20 to 25 hours a week as I normally have.

Because of this, I have recently added finances to my ‘worry about’ list. As part of this, I am first and foremost worried about eating well on such a small budget. I plan out meals every week and cut corners everywhere I can.

So, imagine my excitement when I found out that for $19.95 a month, I could receive a box of healthy snacks in the mail once a month!

Nature Box is a company that sends you healthy, all-natural foods to your doorstep monthly for only $19.95 a month and shipping is free!

According to NatureBox, “Each month, your box will include 15 to 20 servings across five different NatureBox snacks. We take pride in picking the healthiest and most delicious snacks for you to enjoy. You can trust that our products will be made from the most wholesome ingredients and will be minimally processed, if at all. Everything you eat from us will abide by our strict quality standards.”

I was so excited to receive my first NatureBox in the mail! My March box contained, Honey Nut Medley, Pistachio Power Clusters, Wild Blueberry Flax Granola, Whole Wheat Figgy Bars and Sunshing Chips. The Honey Nut Medley currently resides in my bookbag as a snack for in between classes. The Pistachio Power Clusters are in my gym bag for a snack after a good workout and the Figgy Bars are long gone in my boyfriend’s digestive system.

The NatureBox program is great for anyone, but I find it especially affordable and delicious for college students looking for a way to snack healthy!
