Vending Machine- Use the Right Sense!

We all know the lure of the vending machine. The fancy packages and fun buttons are there to tempt us when hunger strikes. Unfortunately this easy way to get a snack can often give you more than you bargained for on your waistline. Many of the foods are calorie dense and loaded with sugar, fat, sodium, artery-clogging trans and saturated fats.

What are your best choices?vending machine

  • Fruits
  • Nuts
  • Whole-grain cereal bars.
  • Dried fruits
  • Trail mix
  • Pretzels
  • Baked chips or crackers
  • Bottled water
  • 100% fruit juice
  • Diet soda
  • Unsweetened tea
  • Skim milk

The more you depend on foods from them, the more stringent you need to be when making your choice about which button to push!!!
