Given that I'm all the time on the hunt for wholesome decisions and I used to be in an airport (land of crappy decisions) – I finished to verify this merchandising machine out.
It was the good factor! It professed to getting contemporary meals day-after-day – and there have been snacks, salads, and breakfasts in recyclable containers. You introduced the container again to the merchandising machine and so they reused it!
Anyway, it was 8 AM so I made a decision to strive the coconut chia pudding with contemporary pineapple for $6. I nonetheless consider chia seeds because the factor you unfold on terracotta to make a pet – however I assumed it is perhaps good.
It was refreshing, scrumptious, and filling and so a lot better for me than the McDonald’s I had handed on my option to the gate.
I made a decision to make it at dwelling.
