Do you work in an office? Do you make phone calls most of your day? Maybe you are on the computer 90% of your day. Heck, maybe all 3. Are you a “bored eater?” Or maybe you just like to snack. Is there a vending machine near your office or in the building? Its convenient, right?
Convenience isn’t always the best. It IS the best when you planned and prepared your “convenient food.” Yes, its easy to go to the vending machine or store foods in your desk that have a shelf life of 6 months because of all of the added preservatives. (PS did you know theres a Twinkie thats been in the same wrapper for 100 years and hasn’t deteriorated?) Its true. Think of that every time you think of those snacks with a shelf life or desk life of eternity.
Whats the answer to bored eating, snacking, and your snack drawer? Choose healthier snacks, thats it. Theres no magical answer.
