Recent reports have indicated that office workers’ poor eating habits are leaving them malnourished, lethargic and at risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
It has been drummed into us that we need to eat at least 5 servings of fruit and vegetables a day in order to obtain all the nutrients our bodies need to function healthily, and it is shocking to learn that the majority of adult workers do not achieve that.
There may be multiple contributing factors, but one obvious issue is that people tend to gravitate toward unhealthy fast food when they’re pressed for time.
Fast food is usually higher in fat, calories, cholesterol, and sodium in comparison to home-made meals. Eating fast food too frequently can increase the risk of health problems such as obesity, high blood pressure and heart disease.
But why can’t fast, convenient food be healthy - and delicious?
The answer is, it can. The Jar Healthy Vending are on a mission; to help Bring Healthy Fast Food to the fingertips of office workers around London, with strategically placed healthy vending machines in London.
In the daytime, the population of London swells to around 18 million - the majority of which
are workers, absorbed in the rat race, stressed, tired and pressed for time. That’s not a good combination when it comes to making food choices. It’s easy to see why so many are failing to maintain a balanced diet.
The Jar Healthy Vending have identified this problem. They are a company lead by a desire
to revolutionize not only how, but what, people eat whilst out on the go, with their Fresh
Food Vending Machines dotted around the capital of the UK.
It’s The Jar Health Vending’s intention to help improve our eating habits, and supply us with
a nutritious, delicious and affordable quick-meal option, as and when we need it.
As the old saying goes, everything in moderation. There is a modern day ‘cheat meal’ trend,
with some going to extreme lengths to gorge themselves one day a week with whatever
they crave. Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is known for uploading an ‘epic’ cheat meal once a
week, usually consisting of a massive portion of whatever tickles his fancy that week, be it a
burger, chilli con carne or sushi (I know, sushi is healthy, but not in the quantity he eats on a
cheat day!), followed by a barrage of cookies or a similar sort.
Let me be clear, I’m not advocating gluttony of this proportion, but feel free to have the odd
‘naughty’ meal. That won’t do you much harm. However, it’s vital that you get in a healthy
routine, and you can count on The Jar - Healthy Vending to help you in that pursuit.
