I started out my work stash with running to walmart and buying one of the plastic totes with the snap top lid that fits under my desk.
In it i keep a staple of snack and lunch items.
Heres what i keep:
Campbells soup at hand (creamy chicken is only 170 calories for the entire cup they are microwavable and ready in a couple of mintues One container is VERY FILLING!!!!)
A box of crackers (usually ritz or somehting like that)
A box of Triskets
Several Cans of tuna
the mini bags of popcorn
Jar of reduced fat Peanut Butter
a bag of pita pockets
A bag of rice cakes
a plate, fork, knife, spoon and bowl
We have a fridge available to us so i keep:
A small container of FF mayo
a package of lunch meat
a bag of baby carrots up celery and a tomato
I Restock at the beginning of each week, if i need to.
I have found that there are many mornings i will get up and not want to make a lunch to take to work and try to tell my self i will come home and fix something really fast. Instead i would give in and say yes ill go to lunch with someone.
I constantly have something available for lunch and it also cures my little problem of fixing a lunch and it not sounding good to eat at lunch time.
The smaller things are great for just making a quick snack or making up for a missed breakfast...
Since i have done this i have found that I am alot less likely to run and grab something from a fast food place or "skip" lunch and over eat at dinner time.
