I packed five days' worth of this salad this week. I was surprised by how filling it was once I started eating!

Stats: Female, 5'4", 28 years old.

Goal: From 152 (07/24/2011) to 125 by December, 2011. DONE! December 4th weighed in at 124. In 2012 I've been maintaining around 122, which is a thirty pound loss. My BMI has gone from 26.1 to 20.9 since following the Spark plan!

Crock pot of vegetarian Chili and put into individual containers and freeze. Take one serving out of freezer the night before and pack for lunch with a slice of low sodium whole grain bread with becel, a 15-20g slice of low fat Swiss Cheese and an apple.

Usually I make a big crock pot full of some soup/stew/chili and then eat off it all week.

Lay aside life-harming heaviness and entertain a cheerful disposition.

I bring leftovers from dinner almost every day. I also eat out once a week as a treat, usually at Chipotle since I can eat there and stay easily within my ranges. I also have a few frozen meals in my freezer in case I don't have leftovers. I like the Healthy Choice Top Chef Steamers. They have a good amount of nutrients and aren't too bad on the sodium for a frozen meal.

For snacks I have yogurt, cheese, and an apple. Sometimes I'll bring 1oz of beef jerky if I'm low on my protein for the day, but not often since it does have a lot of sodium. I also like those mini bags of smart pop popcorn, but I wouldn't recommend that if you work in a place w/ a lot of people, a lot of people don't like the popcorn smell. I also eat my "breakfast" at work, which is just a 120 calorie Kellogg's Fiber Plus granola bar. It would be a good snack for most people.

Low sodium instant soups! I've found a mushroom soup with nuts and grains from Cosway that's really filling and convenient to prepare, all you need is a mug and hot water! Oh, and a spoon, of course ;)

Suzie's Whole Grain Thin cakes (like rice cakes but thinner and WAY less calories) 3 = 48 cal
with a touch of light mayo or mustard
Cheddar cheese slice (1 very thin slice - just enough for flavour)
Deli Meat (ham or chicken breast)

It's like 3 mini open face sandwiches.

I guy energy bars and meal replacement drinks from Amway, they're the best I found and my friend sells them. Really good stuff.

Cold Baked Potato (has a lower GI when cold so will be more filling)

Hard Boiled Egg

Nuts and/or dried fruit - I find a dried fig is more filling than a couple tablespoons of raisins for some reason

Fruit (I slice up apple and pears and put them in a little snap-lock plastic bag and then nibble on them when needed)

Little sandwiches, like you would make for a child. Try banana and peanut butter on it.

Make a smoothie and sip on that during the day.

Bulk cook some soup - fairly thick pureed is more filling that watery/chunky. Freeze them in individual serve microwave safe containers

I just wanted some ideas of healthy snacks that are quick and easy to eat while at work.

I work 12 hour shifts and try to eat 5 small meals, and I am just looking for some more ideas of what people bring to work.

I do have access to a microwave and fridge, But I'd like both ideas- some I have to heat and some I won't.
