We all know that snacking can undo the best and healthiest of intentions. We can have a great plan to eat three super-healthy meals, but it's often the feeling-a-little-snacky behavior that unravels all our hard work and planning.

But, many people feel peckish between mealtimes. In fact, sometimes noshing throughout the day on smart snacks can be a good way to keep from overindulging at your main meals. Whether you're turning to these as part of a nutritional overhaul or just because you don't want to eat other highly processed snack foods, good-for-you options are a must.
Enter UrthBox (pronounced EARTH-box) — the snack company of our dreams. For $19 a month, the company will deliver a box of healthy snacks for you to try. And, they offer standard, gluten-free, diet, vegan, or "snacker" options to choose from. While they're not alone in the industry — NatureBox offers a similar service — they're the only company we know of that allows users to order a surprise snack box based on specific dietary restrictions.
Hurry! If you sign up by November 15, then you can be a part of the first UrthBox shipment. (TechCrunch)
