Shelf-stable healthy food?

The Dairy Queen | Jun 11, 2008 06:52 AM

(Is there such a thing?) Anyway, my apologies if this has been done before, but I'm looking for reasonably healthy/low-calorie snacks or lunch items I can leave at the office for "snack attack" days, to keep me out of the office vending machines or for days when I'm late leaving the house and don't have time to pack my lunch. The only healthy thing that we have in the office vending machine is peanuts, which certainly have nutritional value, but they are a bit high in fat to indulge in regularly, plus, I hate paying the 85 cents...

I was thinking along the lines of beef jerky... Or, maybe oranges that would keep in the office fridge for a week or two... The idea is that I want to make one grocery run and bring a big bag of stuff to the office that would keep for a few weeks.

Any other ideas for me?

Thank you!
