Snacking at work can be tricky. If I stock my desk drawers with something I really like (i.e. something sweet) it tends to be gone in a day (like the box of Pria Bars I bought Monday night). But if I get something I don't really want (i.e. granola) then it sits in my desk drawer while I go downstairs to get something from the candy machine. (Despite my objections to the vending company's practices.)
The ideal way to snack is for me to get something to fill my stomach at 10 AM, lunch sometime between noon and 1 PM, then snack on something sweet to satisfy my taste buds at around 2:30.
Typically I can do this with a Clif, Mojo or Kashi bar in the morning (tasty but not sweet) then have some sort of fruit packed in my lunch that I save for my afternoon snack. Sometimes it might take an extra Kashi bar to see me through, but overall I come home feeling like I've snacked smartly.
Unfortunately, the peanut butter recall has created a shortage of Clif and Mojo bars in stores, so when I stocked up on Monday, I grabbed a box of Odwalla bars (which I haven't even opened yet, because I've never tried them before), a 6-pack of Pria bars (sweet - and now gone) and a box of Chewy Granola Bars "with protein" (sweet - and now gone).
So with two days of the week left I have only the six Odwalla bars. I'll take some Kashi bars I have left here at home, but I might need to re-stock much earlier than planned.
All that to say I need some good snack ideas. The weird thing about me is that the only nut I like is peanuts. So no cashews, almonds, pecans or walnuts (I know, it makes the whole energy bar thing tricky.) What do you like? I need help here, or else I'm liable to down a daily king sized snickers!
