This has been a big problem of mine; I get home an hour before my husband, so I start dinner, but I'm hungry during that hour. Last year what I kept doing was to pour out a bowl of nuts and have a glass of red wine, but that's 300+ extra calories I can't have in my diet.
Now what I do is I have 3 main meals and 3 smaller meals in the day, and I make sure that I have one of my smaller meals either right before I leave work, or right when I get home, along with a bottle of San Pellegrino. I get the water at Costco, so it's a little cheaper, but a case of San Pellegrino is still cheaper than a bottle of wine, and zero calories to boot! So when I get home I'll have a half cup of Fage 0% yogurt, or two Frigo LF cheese sticks, and a bottle of San Pellegrino with a lime in a wine glass.
It helps both the psychological and the physical munchy feeling for me.
Edit: I know the sparkly water sounds frou-frou, but it hits a psychological need for something interesting to sip on when I get home. I know it sounds weird, but hey, whatever helps!
