Fresh! Healthy Vending

14 Oct

I recently started a nutrition club at my school and one of our main goals for the year is going to be to get one of these:

It’s a healthy vending machine by Fresh Healthy Vending!

The top couple shelves are kept at room temperature for chips and snacks while the bottom shelves are kept cool for refrigerated items like juice and yogurt. I think this machine is pure genius. Not only is it awesome, but supposedly, they will give us this vending machine for free as long as the vending machine will get enough business. We still have to pay for the snacks and drinks, but we will both get parts of the profit. I am so excited to see if my principal will approve this as it is already in one of the nearby high schools. AHH YAY this is so cool.

Healthy Breakfast Choices

9 Oct

Breakfast is my favorite meal by far, and I love to start the day off with healthy, yummy foods. Here are some of my favorite choices:

  • Bagel with peanut butter and sliced banana (This one is my absolute favorite, lately I’ve been using mini cinnamon raisin bagels and it’s soooo goooood.)
  • Apple and almond butter sandwich on cinnamon swirl bread
  • Yogurt with fruit and granola
  • Mix of cereal with sliced bananas and vanilla/plain yogurt smoothie instead of milk (I like to mix Cheerios, Special K Oats & Honey, and Special K granola. By using a yogurt smoothie instead of milk it makes the whole meal a lot sweeter. It also makes the boring meal of plain old cereal and milk a lot more exciting.)
  • Omelette with cheese, meat (ham, bacon, or sausage), and sometimes spinach
  • Egg, meat, cheese, and spinach on an english muffin or bagel flat
  • Breakfast burrito with egg, meat, and cheese
  • Fruit salad (I like to mix grapes, cantaloupe, mango, peach, strawberries, and blueberries)
  • Toast with butter and jam (Raspberry is a personal favorite. Usually I have toast when I have fruit salad, just for a more filling meal)
  • Trail mix with almonds, cashews, yogurt covered raisins, and peanut butter chips (I usually grab this for a light breakfast on days when I go for an early run.)
  • Smoothie with yogurt (banana & strawberry, banana w/peanut butter, mango & peach)

I like bananas a lot in case you can’t tell. 🙂

Apple & Almond Butter Bagel

19 Aug

This apple and almond butter bagel is super easy. All you need is some almond butter (I like to use Justin’s maple almond butter), a sliced apple, and a bagel (for this I used a whole grain bagel flat). Simply spread the almond butter on both halves of the bagel and arrange the apples. This is great for anyone looking for a healthy, balanced breakfast or lunch! Yumm.

Yum yum yum. Cute and easy way to eat more veggies, and good if you’re trying to avoid carbs.
