Healthy eating is tough for me, cookie dough, chocolate and cupcakes are my world and the sound of the gym terrifies me. Who would want to put themselves in pain when I can sit here and eat buttercream? Yes, I want abs, but I also want ice cream, and the real winner is always the ice cream. However, recently I decided to up my game and put down the sugary goodness, as I received a little box from The Goodness Project.
The Goodness Project rooted in London, where Anna (the co-founder), realised that there were no reasonably healthy foods in supermarkets, and it is hard to maintain a healthier lifestyle. From this frustration, The Goodness Project was born, saving time and energy by creating a subscription box with a variety of healthy snacks delivered right to your door.
Wrapped up in a decorative box, green tissue paper and a loving note this box actually makes you want to eat healthily. The presentation is beautiful, and the box is bursting with goodness (I guess the clue is in their name really). I received the Ms Sporty Vegan box, but you can get others such as the ‘Love Chocolate and Snack Hamper Gift Box’ which is perfect for you girlies who struggle without chocolate (AKA me).
Now, first of all, I don’t know much about fitness, I just know it through Lewis which is why the brands are well known to me. Fitness food isn’t as bad as you think, it’s not all tasteless, and it may sound boring, but you don’t know until you try, and I’ve been pretty shocked in the past. The Goodness Project provides you with both snacks, drinks and protein powder which you can add to anything such as pancakes, which is a real time saver as in a shop I wouldn’t know what I’m looking for and would get quite confused.
I replaced chocolate bars with bars such as Pulsin’s Maple & Peanut Protein Snack and was surprised to find that my sweet cravings were satisfied (YAY)! I also tried protein pancakes which tasted exactly the same as normal pancakes, but I felt better in myself purely because I knew I wasn’t eating any nasties. I had a lot more energy and I didn’t feel as tired because I wasn’t snacking on things that bloated me out.
Of course, I still love cake, and I will always eat it but fitting healthier bites into your diet can have a significant impact on your overall wellbeing. You don’t realise how bad you feel eating bad foods until you start on the healthy stuff so actually, The Goodness Project has made me reflect back in that way. I’m always honest in these reviews and will say that you won’t like every single item in the box, but it’s good to try and learn about companies where you can find a better alternative.
If you’re thinking about leading a healthier lifestyle then The Goodness Project is perfect for you. I know it’s hard to let go of all those sweet treats but replacements can be just as good. You can either join the subscription programme or you can buy a range of boxes as a one off. Come on girl, you can do this!
