Unsalted healthy nuts, precooked edamame, really any sort of finger food thats bite size and healthy. I work nights too and have noticed just how much we snack on junk food as a group but try to substitute it for healthier things or depending on how often you can have a break bring a light meal. I dont have access to a fridge but cut up veggies (or apples) with peanut butter or hummus sounds pretty good and filling.

You're definitely not alone. When things settle down and the patients are all tucked in bed and hopefully getting some rest, I begin to crave sugary snacks. I have found that if I pack an apple or another piece of fresh fruit, sometimes a high protein yogurt it seems to delay the craving a little more until the morning starts to get busy and then it takes energy to find those sugary snacks (aka, you don't have time and can't consume them). Also, sometimes drinking a cup of tea or coffee will help me. Hope this helps!

How about a carefully measured container of dried fruit and nuts? Great for you first of all, but you can eat them, one at a time as you pass them while you are on the go, and sort of extend them out over those two hours :)

I work 3 - 12 hour shifts overnight / week. I find that between 0100 and 0300 i want to eat everything in sight. What are some of ya'lls go to snacks for when the munchies hits you at that ungodly hour. Any tips from night shifters will be appreciated. Thanks!
