Graze Box – The ultimate plane food

Graze Box is so cool! While it’s normally aimed for busy people who need a snack for the mid afternoon, I think there’s an alternative use that people are not aware of – it’s the ultimate plane food!

I’m flying, and I had to ensure that the plane would be adequately stocked with food for my hungry friends. While trying to figure out what snacks they would like, and the best serving dishes for 30000ft in the air, a Graze Box flyer fell through my letterbox. I read it through, went to the website and placed an order for 25 boxes. I’ve never been a big fan of Royal Mail, but the boxes were delivered promptly for our flight.

This graze box consisted of Omega Booster Seeds (sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and flaxseeds), Ancient Forest Nuts (almonds, hazelnuts and walnuts), Super Berry Detox (goji, blueberry, raisins) and a slice of Banana Bread with an afternoon infusion.

The best things about the Graze Box are:

  • The packaging: The cardboard is sturdy enough to keep the snacks inside safe, without making the box too heavy. The plastic wrap keeps the snacks fresh until you’re ready to eat it. The overall box is slim, so you can pop it into your handbag when you’re travelling. All the cardboard and plastic is recyclable too.
  • The choice: You ultimately decide what you want in your box. The website has hundreds of choices for you, and you decide what you like, what to never send and what you love. There’s something for everyone!
  • The one off delivery: There’s no costly subscription to sign up to. You can decide you want a one off delivery box for when you leave London or when you’re travelling. They deliver nationally in the UK too.
  • It’s good value for money: I think this only applies when you use the box as plane food though.

Head on down to their website to find out more information and how to order your box.

Aside from the Graze Boxes, the drinks on our journey will consist of various teas, coconut water, Evian, San Pelligrino, fruit smoothies and vegetable juices. Snacks on board will include homemade vegetable chips, (both baked and dehydrated options) freshly made sandwiches from my local organic farm, fresh fruit and pastries from Bake-a-Boo.

~Tip~ If you’re flying commercially, and want to bring your own juices and smoothies on board, I would suggest making a super concentrated juice and putting it into a 100ml bottle. Then, after security, buy bottled water and mix the juice/smoothie into it. It’s so much better than buying processed juices made from sugar, fluoridated water and fruit concentrate.

Anyway, I hope you’re all enjoying your week so far. Only  few days until the weekend so hang in there.🙂
