Snacks to store in my desk at work

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created August 14, 2012 at 8:46 PM

I need some suggestions of snacks I can store in my desk at work. I don't have a lot of space, and it needs to be something that can be okay in a desk for at least a week, though I'd prefer longer. I am really easily distracted, so it is hard for me to remember to grab a snack or two each morning to have at work, so it is not ideal to have to remember to bring something each day.

Even pre-paleo, I have always stashed some nuts in my desk for snacking, like pistachios, almonds, etc. However, I also had lots of other things, like crackers, hard candy, granola bars. Right now, the only thing I have are some nuts, and I get really tired of eating those every time I am hungry before or after lunch...

I'd love some suggestions! I try to remember to grab a banana or something else every morning, but as I said, I often forget, or I will eat it, and then want something else later.

I keep butter in my desk. As long as I use it within a week or two, it's fine.

I had to cut out the Lara bars. Too much sugar for me - and too tempting.

And don't go bananas on the nuts either.

Smoked meat stores well at room temp. Keep a few smoked spare-ribs or a smoked turkey leg handy in a drawer for a quick snack. ;-)

I second this suggestion. I always keep a bar in my backpack just in case I forget to bring anything else.

Sweet potatoes. Just wrap in a paper towel and nuke for 3 minutes. If you have access to a fridge, keep a stick of butter in there.

Elunah's list is great. I really like to keep coconut oil and butter in my desk. Just a little is filling and feels a bit indulgent. It will last and last at room temp. I simply eat a spoonful or two. Small cans of tuna and salmon with pull tops are handy, too.

I keep Larabars, individual packets of raw honey and Paleostixs. Been laying off the first two but Paleostix are the bomb!

Dark chocolate squares just in case

Almond butter to put on an apple I bring from home or you could keep whole apples in your desk and just keep a small knife to cut them with in your desk.

I keep a couple small bags of pork rinds -- sometimes I really need a crunch, and they satisfy that.
