I have a kettle and a little kitchenette area in my lab (microwave and a sink) and I often go the oatmeal route. Another thing I keep around the lab for emergencies is canned sardines (puke if you want but they are delicious!). You can get them in water or with lemon. They are quite filling and an excellent source of late night protein. Plus they store quite well. You could do other canned fish but I like sardines :)

I would suggest nuts and healthy cereal. I pack fruits and my dinner and a snack with me so that I have all I need for the night.

My suggestion is to not stay on campus all night. If you are trying to lose weight and get healthy, losing sleep and living in your office/cubicle will make it even harder to be successful.

That said, I do understand how one can get wrapped up in work and lose track of time.

I keep some nutrition bars and almonds in my office in case of emergency muchies. They tend to keep me satisfied when I'm working.

I have a plastic tub in one of my desk drawers (we had mice once - so the tub is key) where I keep packets of instant oatmeal. If I have an apple I can slice on top, all the better.

My old office had the type of coffee maker with the hot water dispenser on it - that was great for oatmeal and cup-o-soup. But you have to be careful with cup-o-soup because sometimes it contains ridiculously high fat and calories while not tasting good enough to be worth it (I'm looking at you, Top Ramen)

I keep a set of silverware and a coffee mug or two around for some minimalist food prep.

I've tried granola bars and cheese crackers and the like, but I will just eat them right away.

Yesterday afternoon I was working in my office and I got on a roll with my research. Before I knew it, 1 AM had arrived. And I was really, really hungry!

Anyway, I have several healthy snack options available in my office at school, and those are great for any number of occasions, but what occurred to me last night was that I don't have any "emergency meals" available at school. You know: for those times when you're better off to stay put, rather than to take a "break" and lose momentum. Clearly, late-night on-campus options tend to be less than healthy. What I'm looking for are suggestions for (relatively non-perishable?) food to keep around my office and to use on those days when going home/out is not a great choice, but when what you need is a filling & sustaining meal.

Do you have any ideas?
