I bought some Kellogg's fiber and antioxidant plus cereal last week, and mixed a half a cup of that with a 1/4 of raisins in snack baggies. It's been really helping me get through the end of the work day and into my work out. Thanks for the great tips.
I actually co-teach 3 core classes a day which is more than anyone else in my school, but I do my pull out time during study halls which are all in the afternoons when I'm getting hungry again. I'm not allergic to sulfa, but other family members are so thanks for the tip!
Thanks for the tips. I'm a middle school special ed. teacher, so I have students coming and going all day without any real breaks in between. The grades change at different times, so if one class is between classes, the other class is in my room. My prep period is at 9:15, so I'm still going pretty strong from breakfast then. I'm thinking I need to get some high fiber cereal and dried fruit!
I'm a teacher as well. I cut up fruit and veggies and leave them in my desk and grab when I get an opportunity. You didn't specify which age group you teach, but I'm in high school and I also try to grab my snacks inb/t the changing of classes. I guess if you teach younger children maybe you can grab snacks during restroom breaks? When is your planning period? I'd also try to align up my food schedule to hit that time if possible too. :)

One snack you can try is a low fat piece of string cheese with an apple. An apple is loaded with fiber and makes you feel full longer while the cheese has protein in it which will give you more energy for a longer period of time.
If you happen to eat your snack before your workout when you get home, wait 30 min. before you exercise. It gives your body time to digest what you just ate. Hope that helps you.

There are much more nutritious snack bars, high protein, high fiber etc. Actually more of a meal replacement than a snack. Fresh fruit is always good, as well as dried. Sometimes not drinking enough water will make you feel famished as well.

So I'm looking to replace the sugary covered granola bars in my desk with something a bit more nutritious and with a lot less fat (fat is the one area my diet is having trouble limiting. It's in a lot of foods I didn't think about before). I'm a teacher, so the only time I can eat during the day is my 25 minute lunch and then after school. I usually have an after school meeting, so I need something I can grab quickly, and something I can store in my desk that doesn't need to be refrigerated. What do you think about just plain granola? I used to eat nuts, but lots of fat there too. I should add that I usually work out as soon as I get home, so I try to grab a snack at school. I hate working out after I've eaten. And by 3:00 I'm starving as I only get a 25 minute lunch. Any suggestions? Thanks!
