The push within the past several years to encourage Americans to make more healthy choices when it comes to meals and snacks has given rise to a seemingly unique concept – vending machines with healthy foods, instead of the ubiquitous candy bars, chips and sugary sodas.
A San Diego company, Fresh Healthy Vending Cafe, is on a mission – to provide people with those healthy food and beverage options. In its vending machines, you’ll find a variety of healthier drinks that are either low in sugar or naturally sugar-free.
Fresh Healthy Vending Café is the latest exclusive launch of Fresh Healthy Vending, a company that started in 2010 and is revolutionizing vending machines by filling them with healthy, natural and organic foods and beverages. Dubbed the “future of vending” Fresh Healthy Vending Cafe is already the largest Healthy Vending company in North America.
Fresh Healthy Vending Café offers franchised high-tech vending machines that are located in such places as workout facilities, hospitals, military bases, schools, and office buildings.
Besides such healthy alternatives to high sugar sodas as coconut milk, purified water, and herbal teas, you’ll find Mayesa. A healthy chocolate drink, Mayesa adds to the credibility of this new vending machine concept by showing that vending machines can carry snacks and drinks that are not only nutritious and healthy for you, but delicious and enjoyable as well.

The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2012 was signed by President Obama as a major step forward in America’s effort to provide all children with healthy foods in their schools.
Since then USDA guidelines are implementing important provisions of the legislation, which includes significant improvements that will help provide children with healthier and more nutritious food options, educate children about making healthy food choices, and teach children healthy habits that can last a lifetime, says a White House statement.

A new study has found that people who regularly eat dark chocolate (with a high percentage of raw cacao) tend to be thinner. The study, published in the Archives of Internal Medicine and headed by Dr Beatrice Golomb, from the University of California at San Diego, showed that those who ate dark chocolate a few times a week were, on average, slimmer than those who ate it occasionally.
The study looked at diet, calorie intake, and body mass index (BMI) of almost 1,000 participants.
“Our findings appear to add to a body of information suggesting that the composition of calories, not just the number of them, matters for determining their ultimate impact on weight,” said Golomb. “Even though chocolate is loaded with calories, it contains ingredients that may favor weight loss rather than fat synthesis.”
Interestingly that link remained even when other factors, such as exercise, were taken into account. And it appears it is how often you eat chocolate that is important, rather than how much of it you eat.
The study found no link with the quantity that was consumed.
In addition, Dr Golomb and her team believe that antioxidant compounds found in raw cacao, called catechins, can even improve lean muscle mass and reduce weight. Mice fed for 15 days with epicatechin (present in dark chocolate) had improved exercise performance and observable changes to their muscle composition. Dr. Golomb says clinical trials are now needed to see if this is the case in humans.
The type of chocolate consumed is important. Most chocolate used in candy bars, chocolate milk, snacks and desserts contain low percentages of cocoa and large amounts of sugar and fat, which can cause obvious problems such as weight gain and onset of diabetes.
For the health benefits of chocolate be sure you eat dark chocolate which is listed as 70% or higher. The percentage indicates the amount of raw cacao in the product. The more raw chocolate the less sugar and fat. And drink Mayesa – a great way of indulging in healthy chocolate because it’s made from healthy organic raw cacao.
