Yesterday I reverted back to my comfort zone, and to one of my favourite dresses. I added a black jacket until I realised just how cold it was...it was hastily swapped for a chunky cardigan!

Actually, all the photos are a bit out of focus...apologies!
This week I was challenged to branch out of my comfort zone (a.k.a. rut) with snacks and add in something I haven't had before/for a while, I chose a fruit and nut mix because it is easily portable and perfect for keeping on my desk at work. I was quite un-inspired looking in the shops, everything was dull and samey (not to mention full of peanuts, which I don't especially love).
Waitrose came up trumps with these babies...
I'd seen Nature Snacks appear on Twitter a few times but wasn't consciously seeking them out as I didn't know where to get them. Originally it was the special offer sign that drew me over to them as well as the eye catching packaging.
There are four varieties from the brand:
Fruit, nut and dark chocolate mix
Berries MixFruit, nut and yoghurt mix
Fruit and nut mix
And none of them contain peanuts, score! Give me Almonds any day. More details + stockists here
As you can see from the photo above, I went for the fruit and nut mix, which contains pistachios, golden sultanas, almonds, Chilean raisins and dragon fruit. I've never had dried dragon fruit before, or knew it existed for that matter. OMG it is amazing. I'm on a hunt for a whole bag of the stuff!
No dragon fruit pictured here, I'd snagged the last couple of pieces!
This mix is SO good. Sweet, tropical and the nuts are super fresh. I'm going back to Waitrose today to stock up on some other varieties whilst it is still on offer!
Have you tried Nature Snacks before?
What are you favourite snacks? I need new ideas, especially for work...
