These subscription boxes make getting and staying healthy easy. Whether it’s healthy snacks, workout gear, yoga essentials, or all-natural beauty necessities: these are the best subscription boxes for a healthy lifestyle.
Subscription boxes have been gaining more and more popularity over the past few years. And for good reason. Subscription boxes are awesome. Honestly, how fun is it to get a total surprise in the mail every month?! As adults, we only get presents twice a year on Christmas and birthdays, if that much. I personally feel like subscription boxes are a little present in the mailbox every month. Besides that, it’s the best way to find out about new products and try something that you otherwise may never have tried.
There’s pretty much a subscription box for everything. Whatever your interest is—make-up, fashion, video games, snacks—there’s a box for it.
As much as I love subscription boxes of all kinds (Birchbox #addict speaking), I wanted to highlight the best subscription boxes for a healthy lifestyle. I chose to highlight a variety, for everyone from runners, yogis, CrossFitters, paleo eaters, or those just looking for some healthier snacking options. To expand on more than just workout or snack boxes, there’s also all-natural beauty boxes and subscriptions that make starting a business, being a college student, or taking up a healthy habit easier.

WHO IT’S FOR: Snack enthusiasts that want new, healthier options that aren’t boring.
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: If you love to snack, raise your hand. (Raises hand.) The problem with snacking, though, is that it’s often too easy to reach for a quick, not-so-healthy option. If you’re anything like me, you also can get kind of bored of the same snacks all of the time. How much trail mix can one person eat? Graze features over 100 snacks in their inventory, offering up a ton of variety. Each box includes 8 individually-portioned snacks, perfect for throwing in your lunch bag or keeping in your desk. You can personalize your snacks so you only get what you like, and each snack box has no artificial flavors/colors/preservatives, 0g trans fat, and is GMO- and corn syrup-free.
WHAT’S IN IT: Lemony rolled oat flapjacks, power seed blends, dried apples and caramel, caramelized honey and cinnamon almonds, dried fruit and trail mixes, poppyseed pretzels, wholemeal shortbread cookies, lightly salted popcorn, cheddar cheese crackers, kale chips, protein bars, chocolate coffee beans, hickory smoked BBQ peas, zesty lime and red pepper salsa, tangy tomato tapenade, and more.
WHAT IT COSTS: $11.99/month.
GET IT: Happy Snacking starts here! And even better: Use the code “PARSNIP” to get your first Graze box for free!
