I take a low carb wrap and fill it with spinach and 2 oz of tuna (sometimes the garlic or spicy tuna) it's only about 123 calories. Very filling and good for you. I realized that celery with a little bit of pepperjack cheese is a nice spice to get rid of a sweet craving too.
Be sure to track it though, I have to limit my cheese can have a lot of calories.
If you don't love yourself....how can you expect others to.
Fruit and some nuts or cheese, depending on who much protein I've eaten during the day. I also usually warm up what's left of my morning cup of coffee (black) because I never seem to finish it before I run out the door in the morning.

First is line is a veggie; second) a small dish of beans; 3) nuts, alone or in trail mix.
@CHACHA, I never thought of sauerkraut...Thank you. Fermented foods are wonderful for the body.
You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.
Mistakes are the portals of discovery.
Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.
It is never too late to be what you might have been.
1. Apple or pear, sliced and chilled 2. grapes 3. Leftover lunch food that I didn't eat purposely in order to have a snack 4. A no fat added salad with salsa for dressing 5. Soup (usually homemade) that is high protein but has no meat

I try to keep 4 oz. containers of nuts and 8-24 oz. containers of sliced, cleaned, ready to eat fruit readily available. Almonds, cashews, and unshelled pistaccios are my favorite nuts. Sometimes I mix plain almonds with dark cocoa powder covered ones. My mixed fruit container includes any of the following: blueberries, strawberries, red seedless grapes, pineapple, watermelon, canteloupe. I also try to keep a healthy granola/protein bar readily available.
Starting Week Two today. Afternoon snacks around the office are a huge trigger for me. When I hit that 2:30pm slump it's way too easy to go grab a candy bar or a lollipop. I know that if I'm prepared, I will make better choices, but I don't always do a good job preparing!
So, what are your favorite go-to-don't-feed-the-sweet-tooth snacks during the work day? They can be frozen or refrigerated snacks as well as goodies you can keep in your desk.
