These best healthy office snacks will keep you from the vending machine. I know what is in the vending machine and most of the time - the food is junk.
I have seen a vending machine in my local hospital with healthy choices. The problem is that is was next to the vending machine with the Cheetos and my son (who fell off his bike and was visiting the emergency room) saw the Cheetos.
Every day you are at work is not an emergency so you can do better than my twelve year old with a little bit of planning.
I have included some packaged snacks for the times when you don’t have time to make a snack because even Snack Girl doesn’t always make her own snacks.
I almost always have my work snack with coffee. Coffee (without sugar or milk) is 5 calories and I find it to be very comforting. Don’t forget, it is roasted bean juice!
