My biggest challenge with watching what I eat is because I hate cooking. Also at work we dont really take lunch breaks and just tend to snack in between customers. It has to be an easy to eat, no mess food, which means I usually end up eating chips. Which isnt healthy.
I tried granola bars, but they just make me feel even hungrier than I did before I ate them. My mom suggested beef jerky, but it makes me sick.
Anyone have any ideas?

Dried fruit, just make sure there isn’t any added sugar. Nuts are a good one too.

Kind bars or apples. some kashi go lean crisp in yogurt or kefir always does the trick too. The trick is making sure you are getting something with either a lot of water content, a lot of protein, or a lot of fiber. They will fill you up. Kind bars would probably be the easiest to eat while you are at work, they are super delicious!

Also, if chips are your thing you could pick a healthier option. I love sweet potato chips, and apple or banana chips are also good. Plus, with fruit chips you can dip them in some peanut butter, which has protein to make you feel full.

@Annabelle86: I LOVE kind bars! But they tend to leave me feeling even hungrier than before I ate. =/
I went grocery shopping last night and picked some stuff up. I got some carrot sticks and low-fat ranch (which is really gross, so I think I’m gonna get some hummus instead), stuff to make salads, yogurt with granola topping, Special K cereal and cereal bars, and wheat wraps, lunch meat and low-fat cheese to make wraps with.
I also got some lean cuisine type frozen meals to eat at home when I dont feel like cooking anything.
