"I would have eaten better but [insert name of fast food restaurant] was closer and more convenient."
We hear that excuse a lot. We've even heard that from ourselves.
These e.a.t. kiosks that sell salads, fruits, and wraps. Chicago plans to have 4 by the end of the calendar year, and expand beyond downtown next year.
e.a.t., (education, agriculture, technology) is a nonprofit to "create better access to healthier foods for more people in the city of Chicago." The kiosks will operate weekdays from 7 am to 6:30 pm.
This one is in the heart of downtown Chicago near where people are going to catch a suburban train or just coming from one.
They take up very little space — these are converted newsstands … but with healthier food.
You can still have excuses to not eat healthier on the go, but with food structures such as this one, those excuses aren't nearly as strong.
