I’ve loved sharing healthy & delicious snacks from NatureBox with my classmates. And I’m so excited to offer you all this giveaway!
Want to know why third year medical students wear their white coats? Lots of the residents and attending physicians never wear white coats and really don’t care if we do either. There are two main reasons we wear them:
- To let people know who we are. Our white coats are short, which means we are med students. We belong there, but we can’t actually make any decisions.
- POCKETS. Our white coats have four huge pockets and one small breast pocket. We keep notebooks, quick guides, pens, clipboards, clerkship papers, chapstick, our phones, and of course, snacks!
White Coat Snacks
Some of our rotations give us time for lunch, but others making eating a fun game. Any time you’re in surgery you really never know when you’ll get to eat next. Get the the hospital at 5am and each lunch at 4…guess it’ll work! That makes white coat snacks very important.
This past month on pediatrics I’ve had to find breakfasts I could stuff in my pockets so I could eat at some point before rounds. I haven’t had surgery yet, but I’m preparing for eating out of my white coat for the next two months. I’ve heard rumors of living off of protein bars! I get pretty lazy and end up grabbing the same bar or bag of plain almonds every single day. But when it’s all I’m eating, I want a little more variety and nutrition!
NatureBox let me try some of their snacks, and it was so fun to share something different with friends each day. Naturebox offers snacks made from high quality ingredients, free from artificial colors, flavors and sweeteners. They also have a lot of vegan, non-GMO, and gluten-free options if you need that. I really loved being able to select snacks based on what I wanted — low sugar, high protein, low sodium, good source of fiber, etc. And when you compare to other high quality snacks, the prices are actually really reasonable.
I tried to choose a variety of snacks. Some healthier, some more treats. Some sweet, some salty. But really I just ended up picking the stuff that looked absolutely delicious! And it was hard to narrow it down – they have so much goodness! My favorites so far are the Dark Cocoa Nom Noms, Big Island Pineapple, Crispy Snickerdoodles, and Dark Chocolate Almonds. I’m saving my jerky for surgery when I truly need a dose of protein to get me through. Some of my classmates looked around the website, and now they’re eyeing the Mini Belgian Waffles and Peanut Butter Pretzels.
