It’s the beginning of a new year and we at Atlantic Vending want you to get started on the right foot. It’s important for many people to start a new year with healthy intentions, but this can be hard to implement whilst accommodating hectic work and home life schedules. Eating healthy may seem like a huge challenge, but it is really quite simple and there’s a trick that we’ve learned will help you out if you’re trying to lose weight or get healthier: Snacking!

The Importance & Convenience of Snacking

Snacking is a great way to keep energized and curb your appetite–especially if you’re sitting in an office or on a job all day. It can be hard to incorporate actual meals around your work schedule, so snacking is perfect for filling in those gaps. When you’re not so hungry, you won’t grab the first thing you see when you walk into your kitchen after work and you’re more likely to prepare yourself a good-for-you, home cooked meal.

Types of Healthy Snacks

There are tons of healthy substitutes for your favorite daytime snacks–we all know that Snickers may curb your hunger for a minute or two, but you’ll crash soon after you’ve finished eating it. Snacks like dried fruit and nut mix are good for you and provide longer-lasting protein and energy. You could also substitute your candy bar for a granola bar or a piece of fresh fruit. There are even veggies and dressing or hummus in some refrigerated vending machines. These snacks are all good for you and provide much better energy to help you get through your day. These snacks serve as great supplements to regular meals, and if you snack frequently enough throughout the day, can take the place of them on some occassions—just make sure you aren’t going hungry!
