Beware of Vending Machines!

by Pam on March 31, 2009

Are you the type of person who needs a pick me up at 2:00PM?  Well, I wouldn’t recommend getting your fix at your work’s vending machines.  First of all, the items are way overpriced, and secondly, most of the options are not exactly healthy.  The worst part about them is that now many of them accept credit cards, making it even easier to waste  your money.  Rather than using the machines, if you insist on still eating chocolate bars, chips, and drinking pop, buy them from your local grocery store instead and just bring them to work with you.  Think of it this way, if you are in the habit of buying a snack and/or beverage from the vending machines every day, you are likely spending more than $50 a month just to support your habit.  Is this what you really want to be spending your money on?  I suggest eating a healthy and nutritious lunch that will give you the energy you need until you get home and to bring some healthy snacks such as a piece of fruit, a granola bar, etc. with you each day in case you do get the urge to eat in the late afternoon.
