Anyone who’s been mystified by the sea of spelt and kombu at the health-foods store knows the challenge of finding wholesome snacks that don’t look–or taste–like cardboard.

That’s why we love Lollihop, a new delivery service that takes the guesswork out of eating healthy by bringing all-natural, tasty snacks to your doorstep each month.

A $19 monthly subscription gets you one box of eight to ten snacks selected by nutritionists to ensure there are no processed ingredients or added sugars, plus recipe cards and tips for incorporating them into your routine (great for the person who wants to sample a vegan health bar but doesn’t need a whole case).

A recent delivery included sprouted pumpkin seeds from Kaia Foods, Kind Cranberry Almond + Antioxidant Bars and one of our favorite good-for-you treats, the enzyme-rich granola from Two Moms in the Raw.

Snacks rotate seasonally–from immunity-boosting dried berries and kale chips in the winter to energizing sunflower seeds andalmond-butter bars in the spring–and you’ll always receive something decadent, like dark-chocolate-covered coconut shavings. Lollihop will also soon unveil boxes tailored to gluten- and nut-free diets.

Now that’s eating smart.

If you had $250,000 to give away, what would you do with it? Seriously, start thinking: Thanks to Chase Community Giving, you’ve got the opportunity to help allocate the distribution of more than $3 million in grants to some of the country’s most worthy small and local charities.

Here’s how it works: First, “Like” Chase Community Giving on Facebook and search for your favorite charities by name, category, zip code or keyword. Next, come back between November 8 and November 22 to cast your 10 votes for the organizations you think most deserve to receive grants. The eligible charity with the most votes will receive a $250,000 grant, the four next top vote-getters each receive a $100,000 grant and the next ninety-five charities with the most votes will each receive $25,000.

All grant recipients will be announced on Facebook on or about November 23. Thanks to you, local charities across the nation will receive funding to help their cause.

Since 2009, Chase Community Giving has donated more than $15 million to more than 400 charities nationwide–all with the help of engaged citizens like you.
