My work schedule starting in a few weeks will be as follows:
7:25 – 3:40 – teaching, Monday through Friday
5:15 – 8:00 – teaching community college, Monday and Wednesday
4:30 – 8:00 – tutoring SAT prep, Tuesday and Thursday
SOOOOO…I’ve got breakfast down (check this out: http://undressedskeleton.tumblr.com/post/43158050000) and I’ve got lunch down (turkey, cheese, and avocado on sprouted multigrain bread), but I need some ideas for healthy but not too small snacks/dinners to eat in the car or on the go between 3:40 and 4:30/5. I can continue to snack during SAT prep, at least, and probably during Monday and Wednesday evening classes, but I’d like to use the time between to eat something more substantial.
Any ideas? I do not have access to a microwave or any way to heat things. I do not like bell peppers or peanut butter.

@peachacid: Cheese sticks and Greek yogurt are always a great choice if you have access to an insulated lunch bag.
These are my favorite portioned cheeses; I keep these in the office fridge and will eat one with six Triscuits. (http://www.cabotcheese.coop/forms/seriousSnacking.php)

@leenh78: Yeah. I just feel like it’s soooo hard to figure out exactly what to eat.
This will be my eating schedule:
6:45 or so: breakfast sandwich (250 calories)
10:30: turkey, cheese, avocado sandwich
4:30: afternoon “snack”
That’s literally six hours between meals…so I’m ravenous by the time 4:30 rolls around. A few crackers and cheese isn’t going to be enough, and becomes unhealthy if I ate the amount I’d want.

@peachacid: Do you like hummus? Packed with protein and delicious with carrot/celery sticks and some pita bread.

Trail mix, nuts in general
Cheese and crackers with fruit
Hummus (or any dip) with pita or any veggies (celery, peppers, zuchini, etc)
You could try almond butter instead of peanut butter

All of those are great, and maybe I will use them as an afternoon snack at school. But I need something more substantial. I will not have eaten for 6 hours. I will be really hungry.
