What Does Your Desk Drawer Contain - Foodwise?

Following on from my post about how to up my calorie intake whilst at work, where someone kindly suggested chickpeas, got me thinking about what I keep in my desk drawer for those very hungry days/unexpectedly working late days.

Mine currently has:

Organic corn cakes - great on their own or with peanut butter. Only downsides are having to spread the peanut butter, and the noise they make when being munched;

Organic peanut butter;

Alpro soya dessert pot things - for just over 100 calories they are reasonably satisfying, but need a spoon (can be drunk if necessary!);

And I'm about to add some tins of chickpeas - will need opening and draining which is the only drawback, but if I have a small tupperware container in there as well then I can quickly transfer and have them to hand for the day (in case I've forgotten to take any with me that day).

So, what does your work drawer/locker contain?

    At the moment it's miso soup and some fruit and nut bars. Most of the space is taking up by shoes though...

    Umm, nothing. It's never occurred to me to keep food in my desk.

    Some interesting ones :bigsmile:

    Having to eat every couple of hours is probably what started me doing it, then working longer days and still having a two hour journey home is probably what keeps me doing it.

    Wonder how many calories in the pen...:ohwell:

    I keep nothing in my desk, but in the fridge at work I keep a banana, a bowl of cherries, a bowl of home made fruit salad and a package of baby carrots with avacado/pepper dip. Yum!! :) I ususally eat these within a day or two so I am always replenishing with the same easy things (plus I love them! Makes me feel like I'm pigging out on junk food when really I'm not! LOL)

    peanut/peanut butter granola bars
    balisto bars (it always cracks me up that otherwise rational German adults try to convince me that this is NOT candy bar...it is a healthy fiber supplement. right, guys...)
    nuts in 20g containers
    (in the fridge at work: Baby Bel cheese)

    I usually try not to eat much of it, so it'll last a while...but it's there and I don't end up eating 200 g of Haribo or Hanuta from the kiosk downstairs. Baby step achieved.

    Well, I don't actually have desk drawer… but I keep a protein bar and a 32 oz water bottle with me at all times while I'm at work. I also keep some apple slices and some string cheese in the little refrigerator. And on the days where I'm hitting the gym before I go home, a container of yogurt gets added to the refrigerator as well.
