    I usually start my day off by having a scoop of whey & milk before i leave to the office.

    Then i grab a banana, yogurt, & a bottle of powerade to have once i get there (~8am).

    But i need some ideas of what I should have while I'm at work during right around ~1030.

    I've thought about nuts (but they dont seem to have that much protein). And i can only eat so much beef jerky, plus it gets expensive (~$7 per 7ozbag).

    Any ideas? (preferably something that doesnt need to be heated)

    Nuts
    Low-fat string cheese
    Monterey jack cheese
    Jerky
    Apples (I usually combine them with cheese or nuts)
    Home-made peanut butter protein cookies (peanut butter, whey powder, SF syrup, mix and shape, refrigerate)

    yeah, i was thinkin about that, especially to go with some canned fruit. but the fact that it needs to be stored in the fridge (which people steal from) and that i need to bring in a bowl to work... makes it mildly inconvenient.

    i've yet to find a bar that tastes good to me.


    i think i might have to try out that peanut butter & honey sandwich. even though it doesnt have as much protein as i would like.

    I usually take a cooler to work with me and keep it under my desk. Get some of the big waterless ice packs, and everything will stay cold all day. I do this for tuna, cottage cheese, and tons of stuff; just sneak it in during the day whenever I need to.

    I dont use a bowl, I eat a tub a day. It goes in the fridge every once in a while, but for the most part I leave it out the morning as I eat it over 2-3 hours.
    Casein which is found in dairy products is good protein to eat throughout the day, especially if you cant eat meals every few hours.

    1oz = 210cal / 18g fat / 10g carbs / 5g protein

    That better be good fat :squint:

    Yep. I dont mind the taste and texture and the benefits of it are ridiculous.
