Try a Box of Tribe Snacks for Just £1!


Will run for pizza

Tribe recently ran a 10-day #InspiredRunning campaign which involved asking over 5,000 runners what inspires them to run. A team of 50 Tribe runners also spent the early mornings and evenings in running hot-spots around London, asking runners to let Tribe know, in one word: “What inspires you to run?”

Tribe also asked a few bloggers to join in by writing down on a piece of card one word explaining why we run and then taking a selfie of said piece of card. I must have been in an exceptionally good mood or, perhaps, drunk when I agreed to this, but the more likely explanation is that I just wanted the box of healthy snacks they promised me.

Still, a deal’s a deal and so after coming back from a run one morning, I decided to take my selfie. Then I looked in the mirror and disguised myself in a hat and a pair of sunglasses, as you can see in the photo at the top of this post.

Of course, I don’t just run for pizza. I will also run for wine, chocolate, crisps and boxes of healthy snacks like the ones Tribe do. You can choose from a weekly, fortnightly or monthly subscription and each box contains four Tribe health snacks, one Discover Health snack, nutrition and training tips and invitations to Tribe events.

The Nutribox Sports Nutrition Box (and 35% discount code!)


As mentioned on my other blog, The Nutribox deliver straight to your door, boxes bursting with healthy snacks. And now there’s even better news for runners (or cyclists or swimmers or jugglers or trampolinists or BMX-ers or skateboarders or shoplifters legging it from security guards); they’ve added a sports nutrition box to their range containing – as you’d expect – snacks perfect for fuelling before, during and after exercise.

Unlike other energy/protein, etc. bars, these aren’t full of chemicals – they’re made with only natural ingredients, are gluten-free, and don’t contain any trans fats or lots of added refined sugars. They’re all vegetarian; most are raw and vegan, too.


I received in my box:

Salad Topper Mix (seeds and stuff. I haven’t had salad for a while and I can’t be arsed to eat seeds on their own, so I added them to a batch of muesli bars I made);

Turkish Delight (no, not the gooey rose-flavoured flour-coated gunge that sticks in your teeth, this is a bag of dried apricots, dates and brazil nuts);

Bounce Ball. I love these, they’re chewy and gooey and peanutty (well, the peanut one is peanutty, anyway. Other varieties are available);

A maple and peanut protein bar (I haven’t tried this yet but I love maple and peanut so I’m expecting good things);

A flapjack (all flapjacks are good, even healthy ones);

A raw choc bar (raw chocolate is much nicer than it sounds. Try it);

A Frank Bar (kind of like a Nakd bar);

A packet of dried strawberries; and

a seed bar which looked like one of those seed bars you used to feed your hamster (it tasted like I imagine the hamster seed bars to taste, too. Sorry Nutribox).

Get 35% off a Nutribox Sports Nutrition box! 

So, you want one of these boxes now, don’t you? I haven’t got one to giveaway, unfortunately, but I do have a discount code you can use to get a whopping 35% off your first order.

Just visit the Nutribox website, choose which size box you’d like and quote JOGBLOG at the checkout.
