When the only food options are those from a vending machine, it is easy to go for the unhealthy snack that we know won’t really cure the hunger spell we are under. There are some better choices to pick when you are heading to the vending machine. Look for the bag of nuts or the bag of pretzels. These are both filling without having the unnecessary high levels of fat and calories.
Another option is to go for the baked chips. The best options are the sweet potato chips, or the veggie chips. These are a bit harder to come by in a vending machine, but if you find them grab them! The baked chips have much less cholesterol and fat compared to their fried counterparts (aka the traditional chips), which makes them better for you and you can eat an entire bag without feeling guilty afterwards.
If you have a vending machine with a wide selection, see if there are high protein nutrient bars. These bars can fill you up and leave you satisfied and not needing to snack on more food in a half an hour.
Eating tip: we have heard if you drink a cup of water then wait twenty minutes before you eat, you will not only feel a bit fuller before you start, you will get filled up quickly and feel good to go for longer than if you just eat the food without the water.
