Healthy snack ideas to kick your vending machine habit

Vending machines: They’re where all good eating resolutions go to die—right? If you visit a vending machine, you aren’t going to find much in the way of natural, unprocessed food. You’ll find a lot of artificial ingredients, a lot of additives, and a lot of unhealthy carbs and sugars.

But you can work harder at avoiding vendo-land—all it takes is a little forethought and preparation. And better-for-you snacks can fit into any eating plan or dietary restrictions, too.

Take single-serve packets of nut butters: Spread them on a banana or apple and you get a serving of fruit with a little protein, too—great for natural sugars and more sustaining energy, too. And you can get a large package of single-serve options like this and stash them at work so you’re always prepared with something on hand.

What other ideas—or foods—should you be snacking on? This graphic has some ideas.
