If there should be any leftovers…. You will want to take them for lunch the next day in one of Thirty One’s thermals..  Try my favorite, the Going Places Thermal.

The Going Places Thermal has a spacious compartment for lunch and snacks as well as a water-resistant thermal lining. The crossbody strap is ideal for taking snacks on the go for long walks, hikes, or any time when you just need your hands to be free to carry other items. A zip-around closure keeps contents sealed and protected, while an interior mesh pocket and exterior flat pocket provide extra storage spaces for other items like cell phones or keys. Holds up to 10 lbs.!  Monogramming and personalization options available.  It is 8”H x 9”L x 5.5”D

Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!

GRAZE

I was introduced to GRAZE about 6 months ago.  I was looking for some proportioned healthy snacks that were out of the box…. no, not literally, just different combinations of some of my favorite things.  The best part is that each box is different AND it is single portions so if I don’t like something, I can say that I don’t want it again.

This is from GRAZE’s about page….

Graze was started by seven friends sick of chips and candy, who wanted a better way to snack.  We quit our jobs and camped out in a friend’s spare room for months and after a lot of hard work, graze.com was born – snacks that show off the tasty side of health and are delivered directly to you.

moving to the graze kitchenFast forward a few years and we have developed a range of over 100 delicious snacks and designed an intelligent algorithm, that we call DaRWIN, to customize each and every box specially for you.

Amazing creations that above all taste great

We know the secret to great tasting food is creativity so our specialized Taste Team, led by Eleanor (we call her “the Taste”), are always in the kitchen. Their sole mission is to discover exciting flavors and create delicious new combinations that will delight your taste buds.

It’s not just the unique combinations and flavors that make our snacks great, it’s our dedication to find the highest quality ingredients. Some people think that an almond is just an almond, but once you’ve tried our Californian almonds with our sweet yet spicy salsa mesquite seasoning, you’ll never look at an almond in the same way again.

We pride ourselves on working with small suppliers who we feel give us unrivalled ingredients and products. We don’t compromise on quality and only work with suppliers who love food as much as we do.

One of our favorites is the White family – Lynne White’s flapjack recipe has been passed down generations and we’re sure you’ll agree that the love and affection put into the baking really pays off.
