making office snacks

drdawn | Mar 11, 2009 10:07 PM

For diet and money reasons I've been taking my lunch to work. But for time reasons the only lunch i can seem to manage is soup, because i can make it over the weekend. I can't even manage a sandwich in the morning--i intend to and after many intentions i've learned it just doesn't happen. Often the soups are just shy of making me full. even the hearty ones--there's only so much of it you can eat in one go. I then always have a piece of whole fruit.

Problem comes around 3-4 when I am STARVING. which leads to raiding the free chocolate bowl which still doesn't do the trick because I'm actually hungry. More fruit doesn't cut it. I need something cliff-bar like, something with substance and a bit of protien. I've seen posts refering to hummus and peanut butter--there's some possibilities in there but i also like the idea of making something over the weekend for this purpose. something easily self-contained. I don't trust myself with an open peanut butter jar in the drawer.

the only AM effort involved has to be remembering to put it in the bag, though i will happily do something that's lots of effort on the weekends, perhaps even weeknights if its good. It has to be reasonably healthy.

Thanks for any ideas!!
