Your Guide To Healthy High Protein Snacks To Enjoy Anytime
Unless you work in an environment when you have set break times for food and drinks, it can be really easy to get into the bad habit of snacking a lot during the day. This can be especially true if you’re currently having to work from home.
When It comes to having a fridge and cupboards full of chocolate and unhealthy snacks I was guilty as charged. That was before I discovered Graze.
I was helping out on my office’s reception one day and that’s when things changed.
While sorting through the post, I kept coming across little boxes emblazoned with the word ‘Graze’ addressed to quite a few of my colleagues. Now I’d never heard of this company but my curiosity got the better of me and I decided to find our more.
So what exactly is Graze?
Imagine having taste experts on hand to select snacks for you. All you have to do is tell them what you like and they’ll put together a box of really healthy snacks and cereal bars, packed with nutrition and protein. The people at Graze will then tailor the flavours of each box to suit you, and then deliver it to you place of choice!
Sounds too good to be true eh? But no. That’s exactly what Graze do.
At graze they believe the healthy choice shouldn’t be a compromise on taste! They’re committed to using the best ingredients nature has to offer to make the best snack, and they’ve got many delicious, wholesome creations for you to look forward to

The Online Shop
The Graze online shop is sure to get your tastebuds tingling. It’s packed with tasty treats to suit all palates and when you see the options available you’ll find it hard to believe that they’re all heathy – but they are!
Another great feature of the shop is you can browse products by type. Looking for Vegan options? They’re all in one place. The same for sweet or savoury, gift boxes, variety packs and much more.
I have too many favourites to mention but some of my ‘go to’ items include;
Dark Choccy Wonders Variety Pack – Being a self-confessed chocoholic this gives me all the taste but with an amazing 75% less sugar than the average dark chocolate.
Marmite Variety Pack – Love it or hate it, Marmite has been around for decades and Graze have cleverly re-imagined Marmite into snacks with benefits in every bite, from creamy cashews to punchy peanuts.
Smoky Barbeque Crunch Sharing Bag – A must have for those nights in front of the telly is this sharing bag. Instead of choosing crisps, reach for this instead and you’ll never look at a bag of crisps the same again!
Jaffa Cake Multipack – I have to admit this one is my favourite! I’ve loved Jaffa Cakes from being a kid but they’re just so moreish and before you know it half a box has been eaten. With this alternative from Graze you get all the great taste but without the sins!
Each item in the Graze Shop comes with some great product information, so you know exactly what it is you’re going to be eating before you buy.
Here are some FAQ’s from the Graze website in respect of the products they have;
Do you use any artificial colours or flavours?
No. We believe that using the best ingredients makes the best snack, and don’t let any artificial colours or flavours through the doors of the graze kitchen.
Do you use sugar in your dried fruit?
We do not use any refined sugar in the dried fruit within our retail range. Instead, we use fruit juices to sweeten tart fruits such as cranberries.
Are your snacks suitable for vegetarians or vegans?
All of the graze snacks available in stores are suitable for vegetarians.
Just three of these snacks are not suitable for vegans; our salted fudge peanut cookie, chocolate pretzel dippers and lemon drizzle flapjack. All of the rest can be enjoyed by vegans… and everyone else!
Do you use preservatives in your dried fruit?
We don’t use artificial preservatives in our dried fruit and never use sulphur dioxide, an allergen and artificial preservative which is commonly found in other dried fruits
How many portions are there in each sharing bag?
There are approximately 4 portions in each bag, and they can be resealed to enjoy later.
Do you cater for people with allergies?
Graze is not suitable for people with allergies. All of our food is packed in the same place, so cross-contamination between any of our ingredients is possible. Our snacks may contain traces of gluten, eggs, peanuts, soya, milk, nuts, celery, mustard, fish and sesame.
You should definitely give Graze a try as it certainly changed the way I snack, and the waistband on my jeans definitely thanked me for it!
