Theyre a bit more than your average granola bar, but Larabars are really good for anytime youre craving something sweet or need to conquer that afternoon hunger. They come in all sorts of flavors, many are vegan, kosher, and gluten free. All the ingredients are things you can read too, mainly dates and nuts and other fruits. Its my go to snack bar when im in a pinch.

I have found chips in the vending machine that are popped instead of fried or baked...they're pretty good...also the almonds and a little beef jerky that's homemade....

you have a healthier vending machine than ours. I love to use my dehydrator to make flax seed chips also and kale chips

Its so tempting to hit the snicker bar number over the chips... lol...but I've been doing good..the best thing is to not even go to the machine..

I'm addicted to Haldiram's "chatpata matar"
(Dried spicy green pea snack)
Picked them up at an Indian food store.
Since they are hard to get (expensive on amazon), I can easily find Majans Bhuja snacks version called Crunchy Seasoned Peas.

I like fruits purées with no sugar added, homemade smoothies with fresh fruits and maple syrup, dried prunes or raisins, fresh carrots or little tomatoes and sometimes I add one ore two kamut rusks with a spoon of honey

If you want to try protein smoothies you should give Iso 100 a try or Elite. They are both lean so won't have you feeling too full to do anything as some proteins do. Mix them with whatever fruits you like, a banana, strawberries, 2% milk, water, and ice and your all set!

Thank u!
