About KalorieBox!
KalorieBox is a great and simple way to get monthly low calorie snacks while helping a great cause! With KalorieBox, simply choose a plan, get your KalorieBox in the mail every month and discover low calorie, delicious, healthy alternatives to the foods your already eat and love.

How does KalorieBox work?
KalorieBox offers three great plans, so you can decide which will work best for you! Choose between Monthly, 3- months or 6-months plan, but don't worry, you can cancel at anytime and KalorieBox guarantees your money back! So, once you've signed up and chosen your plan, sit back and your healthy alternative, low calorie and delicious snacks will arrive right to your door step every month. KalorieBox is shipped on the 15th of each month with free shipping.

 So what comes in the KalorieBox?
Each KalorieBox comes with 5 or more low calorie, healthy items. These items can be anything from snacks and drinks to desserts, condiments and everything in between. Every month the products in your KalorieBox will be different, but one thing that will remain the same is that each item will always be low calorie and healthy. 

Why are low calorie and healthy alternatives important? 
In order to lose weight, your body has to burn more calories then it takes in. So what would be better then taking in lower calorie, healthier, but also delicious alternatives to help your body burn those calories!? Whether you're a calorie genius or you are just getting in to the game like myself, KalorieBox makes limiting the amount of calories your body takes in as easy as pie, don't worry, that is low calorie pie of course! 

What's the Good Cause I mentioned earlier?
Well, for every KalorieBox delivered, they donate one mail to a hungry child in America who is in need of all of our support. Did you know there are 16 million children in America who are unsure of when their next meal will be or where it may come from? Learn more about KalorieBox's Giving program by visiting their Good Cause page. 

 Our KalorieBox!
We received a box of delicious, low calorie healthy alternative snacks, a drink and a condiment! 


Discovering what is in your KalorieBox is one of the best things about it! I personally LOVE surprises and while you know you will be receiving low calorie, healthy alternatives, you still don't know what exactly will be in your box from month to month. Don't expect anything, but the BEST

  
Sensible Foods: Cunch Dried Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Snacks you can enjoy year-round! Through Sensible Foods, Unique Crunch Dried process the water is removed while all of the products cells structure, nutritional value and intensifying natural flavor is maintained. Each fruit pouch contains .75 ounces of fat free, 100% natural, Gluten Free & GMO Free delicious fruits! This .75 ounces of fruit is equivalent to a half cup of fresh fruit or one daily fruit/vegetable serving that has a shelf life of over one year! No more buying fruit or vegetables and having them go bad before your able to eat them all, what a money saver!

My Review: Our children love fruits and vegetables, but then we find apple cores, banana peels, half of carrots, etc laying around, plus fresh fruits and vegetables attract fruit flies. Did you know that fruit flies actually breed in fresh bananas? Gross, eh!? I've learned the hard way that bananas really can't be put into the refrigerator for more then about 3 days as they bruise and soften way too quickly in the refrigerator, yuck! However! With Sensible Foods Crunch Dried Fresh Fruits and Vegetables our children can enjoy their fruits and vegetables daily with out the mess or daily trips to the grocery store in order to keep the fruits and veggies at home fresh and not bruising. Sensible Foods is exactly what the name says, the sensible way to provide fresh and nutritious while still delicious and flavorful fruits and vegetables year round!!
Chocolite Sugar-Free Protein Bar: A delicious moist protein bar with half the calories and twice the fiber! Chocolite Sugar-Free Protein Bars are great nutritional snacks that work with most diets, including Weight Watchers, South Beach and Atkins. Traditional protein bars are high in calories and sugar, but Chocolite Protein Bars are only 100 calories and sugar FREE

My Review: We received the Chocolite Sugar-Free Cookies N Cream Protein Bar from KalorieBox. Dan likes things high in protein and definitely loves chocolate! In all honesty he probably eats more chocolate then most women, but shhh I didn't tell you all that. He often tries to get me to try his protein bars or shakes, but I normally really do not like the taste and texture of them. Neither of us usually even attempt to try things that are sugar-free as he assumes they are gross and I know from experience with a diabetic grandma that most bars and candies that are sugar-free are pretty bad tasting, but we tried the Chocolite anyways.... we both liked it! I actually liked something with three layers of protein, caramel and chocolate.


Pirate's Booty Puffs: Pirate's Brand has made a delicious baked rice and corn puff that is all natural, Gluten and Trans Fat FREE. We all know Pirates like their run aged to perfection, but Pirate's Brand says Pirates also like their cheddar the same way, aged to perfection. The Aged White Cheddar is made from puffed rice and corn, blended with real aged white cheddar cheese and baked perfectly to pirates standards. They love to keep their ingredients simple, so no need to search online. 

My Review: Our boys shared the Aged White Cheddar Pirate's Booty Puffs and loved it! There was not a single piece left and they asked for more! What a great snack for two toddlers, or anyone, than a snack that you know exactly what is in it and how it was made. Love to keep our boys snacks simple and healthy. 


 Pacific Organic Almond Milk: Pacific Organic Almond Milk is made using real almonds, water, a little organic cane sugar and a hint of vanilla. What makes this non-dairy beverage taste so delicious is that they combined simple, whole ingredients and vitamins without those artificial fillers or additives. 

My Review: Almond Milk can be used as an alternative to dairy when baking, cooking or even in your morning cereal. The Almond Milk we received was in a convenient single, 8 ounce serving. While Cade is allergic to tree nuts, Ezio is not. I have been a bit curious as to the taste of Almond milk, but chickened out and let Ezio drink it. He is not a picky toddler, unlike his brother and seemed to really like the Almond milk. I love that Almond milk is a great alternative to soy, we are not fans of soy. 


Nature's Hollow  Sugar Free Maple Syrup:  Made with a great tasting healthful natural sweetener called Xylitol which is a 5-carbon sugar alcohol that is ideal fro diabetics and those concerned about sugar intake. Xylotil, unlike sugar, has a very low glycemic index, has fewer calories and is good for your teeth. Wait! Did I just say a sweetener was good for your teeth? Yes, I sure did!

 My Review: Dan loves maple syrup on his pancakes, waffles and french toast so I was excited when I opened the bubble wrapped glass bottle and discovered it was maple syrup as we had just run out. Funny how somethings happen hey? I was a bit worried that he wouldn't like it because it is sugar free, but like those Fiber One commercials I thought to myself if he doesn't see the bottle, he'll never know right? Sure enough he liked it, did make a comment about it tasting a little different then the usual sugar filled syrup we have used in the past, but it wasn't a complaint of disgust. Success! My grandma is diabetic and I let her try some of the Nature's Hollow Sugar Free Maple Syrup and she loved it. She asked me a couple times if I was sure it was sugar free, so I looked up Nature's Hollow to help reassure her, she was just in such disbelief due to the delicious taste of the syrup.
