Living Gwyneth Paltrow-levels of healthy can be tough – especially when you sit at a desk all day and the only incentive to get out of your chair is to go to the vending machine to re-up on jujubes.
It’s not just a question of willpower, you also have to set aside time to exercise and plan your meals, including snacks. To help you with the latter, we've rounded up some of the yummiest good-for-you food subscription boxes available to Canadians. Like beauty boxes, but for your stomachs, these care packages are delivered to your door monthly. Grab your kale chips and read on.
The brainchild of San Diego-based yoga teacher Maxine Chapman, BuddhiBox is the Party Mix of food subscription boxes. It comes with all-natural beauty products, healthy foods like hemp seeds and calming teas, and yoga supplies such as an yoga mat cleaning spray and metallic tattoos.
