    Healthy Food in a Pinch?

    Got a problem..

    This morning, I woke up WICKED late, choked down a protein shake & some oatmeal, looked in the fridge, had NOTHING prepared, and had to run out the door to make it to work..

    I would possibly make a quick run out to the grocery store.. I've got 3 meals I have to eat at work today, and I can't prepare anything (unless it's in the microwave).

    Any ideas on what I can snag from the grocery store to get me through today? (High protein, complex carbs, low fat (or good fats, at least))

    Unfortunately, I CANNOT eat tuna fish. I've tried numerous times because I know it's so good for you, but every time I've tried it (washed it, hot sauce, etc (I hate mayo)) I get nauseous.. The smell when opening the can makes me sick to my stomach to the point where I won't eat, ever since I was a kid

    You could always resort to Protein Bars. Most supermarkets carry a decent selection.

    Also, I love a good sweet potato in the microwave. Cottage cheese is another good one.

    I actually did grab a protein bar, The POUCH tuna (I'm gonna give tuna ANOTHER shot, this was recommended to me by my co-worker who hates tuna in a can.. we'll see *eek*), and the purdue short-cuts pre-cooked chicken. which is great in a pinch. I'll throw that on top of a salad for lunch, have some later w/ the other half of my protein bar, and I'll be all set for today.


    I really should try cottage cheese again tho..

    Thanks nate

    Sliced fat-free turkey or chicken slices from the deli counter (or prepackaged) -- high in sodium, but not a big deal if done occasionally; also, some grocery stores have rotisserie chicken and such available for sale. Canned chicken or turkey, if you can find a low-fat variety. And as everyone else says, healthy carbs are easy to come by. Just don't forget the can opener (most groceries will have that, too, in a kitchenwares section) -- stick it in your desk for next time.

    I would grab one of those rotisserie chickens that most supermarkets carry today. so they have a little extra fat, no big deal...

    protein and fat, that's a meal...
