I like Total but you can pick anything...Fiber One Original, Cheerios, Grape-Nuts, Kashi GoLean, Shredded Wheat Original, Organic Smart Bran....

You can use some as yogurt topping as well.

whole grain bread, pita bread or tortillas
peanut butter- they sell smaller containers, use for sandwiches or with celery or fruit
thin sliced turkey- sandwiches, snacks, add to salad
fruit- fresh or dried, have with meals or for snacks
vegetables- a 20 oz or 1.75 lb veggie tray should be enough for 5-8 might get a couple of these instead of a bigger size if it would fit better in the fridge
salad stuff- I prefer spinach to lettuce
nuts, sunflower seeds
whole grain crackers
hummus- use as a sandwich spread or eat with vegetables
tuna- use on a sandwich, on crackers, or add to salad
cereal- They sell single serving containers or an 11 to 12 oz box will probably contain 6 or 7 servings
vegetable juice
canned beans (kidney, black, white, garbanzo)- a 14 or 15 oz can is usually about 1 1/2 to 2 cups of beans... if you eat 1/2 c per serving then one can of beans could cover 4 meals, you could add beans to salads

Thanks. What kind of cereal do you suggest? Is there one that has high protein, low carb?

Cereal, milk, yogurt, cheese fruit and vegetables. Sandwich stuff. Salads - prewashed mix and dressings.

You shouldn't ever drop your calories below 1200.

Pre-cooked chicken strips
Vegetables for snacking (buy a $2 knife to cut them with)
Salad makings

Anything left over is food for the trip back.

Fresh veggies - carrots, zucchini, lettuce, peppers, mushrooms, etc

Most market sell hummus and that's a good source of protein and great for on the go as well

Instant soups while high in sodium can be useful, same for instant oatmeal that you just have to boil water in the coffee pot to make up (we do this every year when we do conventions, we bring instant soups and oatmeals that you just add hot water to - we also now bring our portable rice maker that can also make soups, as well as rice). You can also cook eggs using the hot water from the coffee pot, even make Ramen noodles

canned meat though not something id eat (fish, chicken, ham, etc), is also an option for adding protein that doesn't need to be in the fridge but yo might need a can opener if it doesn't have a pull tab on it.

wraps are a good option for making on the go meals or just for plain eating

rice cakes make a good option the thou can stack various foods on including Nut butters, processed meats, jam and the list goes on

jerky while high in sodium is also a good course of protein on the go

I will be staying in a hotel for a week and would like to shop the first day for 3 meals and 2 snacks a day. I will have a mini fridge, but no microwave or any dishes/ pots / pans, etc.
I would like each day to be:
1000-1200 calories
100-120 gms Protein
85-100 gms carbs
50 gms fat
Please help me. I just cannot figure out what to buy to begin the week & not have anything left over.
Thanks in advance!!!!!
