Tip of the Day June 29, 2013

Don't you just love the vending machines at work? They're filled with goodies like candy, cookies and once in a while, pretzels. Sorry. That was me being sarcastic. Here's what I'm trying to get at. You're hungry at school or work and you want something to eat. Vending machines are everywhere at the workplace and schools (especially universities). You decide to spend the dollar or two to feed your hunger. You enjoy your M8M's, skittles, cookies, chips, whatever it may be. You feel satisfied for a while, then you get hungry again. Don't buy the vending machine snacks. Here are my top two reasons why:

  1. You are wasting your money.
  2. The snacks usually aren't healthy and don't fill you up for long. 
So, what can you do?

Always carry some healthy snacks with you. If you're at work or school, bring some homemade trail mix, fresh fruit, granola bars (look at the nutrition facts!), or other healthier snacks you may want to bring. It's much cheaper bringing something from home and your waistline and wallet will thank you.
