Thanks so much for all suggestions! I spent some time yesterday perusing the aisles with your help in mind and am armed with a few new choices as I head to work today!

Here are some things I keep-not all at once, just some ideas. Some of these can double for lunch if you get in a pinch.
Depending on your space:
Granola bars/fiber one bars
instant oatmeal-if you have access to a microwave-my last batch was Raisin,Date Walnut -yum
Small jar of peanut butter and bring an apple, carrots or celery to dip
Single serving packets of tuna
A box of Hint of salt triscuits-or your favorite cracker to eat with the tuna or peanut butter
Dry cereal-remember the portion and would go good with your dried fruit
Another idea is to purchase fruits and veggies and portion them as soon as you get home, grab a bag in the morning and off you go!
Apples, pears, oranges and bananas come "prepackaged"-grab and go

Regular veggie staples I have on hand at work in my fridge "stash":

Red Bell pepper strips, baby carrots, brocolli & cauliflower florets, baby spinach. I'm not a fan of celery or cucumbers, but they're worth considering also.

I don't bother with dips...why add calories? :-)

you could bring veggies and dip that works...............


“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

Try looking at a larger grocery store for some dehydrated or fried vegetables or vegetable chips. Even the fried ones are low in fat and offer a good source of fiber, healthy carbs and protein. I usually get them in Amish country, but have also found the dehydrated veg chips(these actually look like green beans, squash, beets). They are yummy, crunchy and lightly salted.

I have also seen small packs of celery with peanut butter. Though they would have to be refrigerated or packed daily, they are easy enough to throw into your bag in the morning with no prep time.

Hello everyone - I'm in need of some new ideas for healthy, low calorie snacks to stash in my desk at work for those days when the afternoon munchies just can't be tamed. I have some difficulty eating nuts, and keep dried fruits on hand. But, I am in need of a bit more variety. Anyone have any ideas of things that I can 'leave' at work rather than pack every day?
