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 servings...you 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 cheese 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 milk 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
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
