Take a slice of lean lunch meat and wrap up slices of veggie/fruit inside...some yummy options are bell peppers, cucumbers, carrots, romaine, apples, etc. The possibilities are endless. I take 3 slices of Foster Farms lunch meat (45 calories) and wrap up some yummy slices of yellow bell pepper...that's it! Yummy, healthy and easy to take along on ice in a baggie.

I have the hardest time with portion control. Lean Cuisine meals to the rescue! If I'm still hungry I have hard boiled eggs, veggies or fruits as a snack! Result: Less daily calories, eating more often plus learning true portion size, and no more guesswork for dinner at the end of a long day!
$2-$3 per meal, 220-320 calories each. Snacks: veggies, hard boiled eggs, fruits, protein shake
When you buy a new loaf of bread, take the stale loaf and make up a bunch of peanut butter & jelly sandwiches. Don't forget to measure and use lower fat, lower sugar ingredients. :) Put them in individual sandwich ziploc bags and freeze them. Any time you need a quick grab n go meal, you can pop one in the toaster oven for 5 minutes, and you have a great toasted PBJ. You've saved money (didn't throw out the bread, didn't buy meal bars), and you know exactly what you're eating. And yummy!
You need a toaster oven. Benefits: convenient protein, fruit snack
I sit behind the computer all day, in order to keep myself from snacking without thought, I limit my snacks to 2. I pack them with my lunch and eat them at specific times in order to keep it under control and not consume too many empty calories. When the snacks are gone, they're gone!
Good snacks = protein bars, fruit, turkey jerky, and nuts
