That Foodie Feeling #1: Food Favourites

Well hello there...

I love food. (Who doesn't?) I would definitely describe myself as a foodie - I love trying new foods, eating out and creating recipes. But, I also love my healthy lifestyle, so I've been adapting recipes and discovering new foods that are damn tasty, but also good for me. 
I'm going to share with you today, some of my current favourite foods!

Let's get started...

Graze boxes
A couple of years ago, I was given one of those 'free graze box' codes, so I thought I would take advantage of it being free and all. I mean who wouldn't? So I redeemed my free box, enjoyed it, but I never signed up for another one. I don't know why, I just never got around to it. Until now! 
I have been living my healthy lifestyle for almost a year now, (catch up on my weight loss journey here) so I decided to reignite my graze box subscription, and my love for their amazing, healthy snacks.

I signed up to receive a graze box once every two weeks, but you can choose once a week or once a month. It's up to you. 
You can choose from a wide variety of different boxes, from the chocolate box, to the savoury box and they even have sharing boxes too. 
In each box you receive four snacks, and while you can't actually choose which snacks you want in your box, (although I love the surprise!) you can pick foods from their selection that you like, or want to try. 

You can rate each snack as: Bin - I never, ever want it in my box, Try - I suppose I'll give it a go, Like - Ooh, I quite like the sound of that, Love - I must have more right now!
And you can also tick 'send soon', and Graze will try to send it to you as soon as possible. 

Some of my favourite Graze snacks are: The dark rocky road granola topper, chocolate pretzel, light lemon and poppy slice, with an afternoon tea infusion, Mississippi BBQ pistachios, olive and rosemary bruschetta, the graze brownie and so many more! 

If you would like to try a Graze box for free, I have a friend code that you can use to get your, 1st, 5th and 10th boxes totally free! After redeeming your first free box, if you decide Graze isn't for you, you can opt out at any time. 

I promise this post isn't sponsored by Graze, I just love them so much! Haha

Frozen grapes
Now, I love grapes, they are one of my favourite fruits. They are just so juicy and taste amazing. 
But if you pop them in a tub, and put them into the freezer... oh lord!
 They are the one! They actually taste like a proper sweet treat.

Sweet potato fries
I love sweet potatoes, I eat so many I may turn in to one!
I love them baked, mashed - you name it! 
But my favourite is to chop them into wedges or fries, pop them into the microwave for 3-5 minutes (depending on your microwave) then fry them in 1 teaspoon of Lucy Bee coconut oil.
They taste delicious, if you've never tried sweet potato fries, do it now - you're missing out!

I am a huge popcorn fan, always have been and always will be.
 It's the best quick snack, perfect for watching a film or an afternoon pick me up!
My favourite is the Propercorn Sweet n Salty Popcorn, it tastes so good, you'd think it was a naughty treat. But oh no, there are only 129 calories per pack.
Prepare to get addicted!
