This problem needs to be resolved.

I always have:

Breakfasts: oats, soya milks, cinnamon, flax, seeds

Meals: Tins of beans and ready made ratatouille and chilli seasoning which I mix together to make emergency meals in the microwave! A bit wrong I know but better than nothing!

Snacks: Okay this might sound like a weird 'snack' but I eat these pre-cooked bags of merchant gourmet puy lentils straight out the bag for snacks all the time. Also, a massive bunch of bananas.

All these things survive in the cupboard/drawer (though flax should really be in fridge).

Don't tell anyone I am taking up all the kitchen space!!

Darcy I do the 'out the packet' thing with the Merchant Gourmet lentils too- sometimes I push the boat out and stir them into a jar of curry sauce. I love them.

Reviving this thread as I just took a picture of my work food stash:

Image

That is Clif Bars, Lara Bars, Raw Revolution Bars, Weetabix cereal, plain oatmeal packets, some tea, chocolate bar and not visible are the Builder Bars and NuGo bars

This is on top of the soy milk and soy yogurt in the fridge, and my lunch in my bag :) (hooray for work stashes!)

I never have any food stashed at work. If there's food here, it just gets eaten. :(

Love the dedicated food drawer, Frostfire.

This is my long term store in my locker.

This is my immediate access store in the mess room.

This is my constant browsing throughout the day store on top of my toolbox.

So true!

Vanilla almond Clif builder bars = lunches
Clif Mojo peanut butter pretzel bars = afternoon snacks
Nature Valley Recharge cherry dark chocolate bars for desperate measures :lol:

Part B should be what drugs/medicine do you have stashed at work.

Same thing here.

At one point, I had a dozen+ Cliff bars sitting in various bags that I took to work when walking around. They get gone every two weeks. Then I forget to buy more until two weeks later.

I take leftovers when we have them (rarely). Unfortunately, I find myself spending my $$ on this wonderful syrian place 100m away from my office (Bulgur garlic/onion Mjujadarra plus legume tomato, parsley, lettuce salad plus hummus all in a giant toasted pita wrap), or at the cheap Thai Place (vegan sauce on fried tofu with broccoli and brown rice), or at the sushi place, or at the burger place (two different vegan burgers). Not good at all. I've spent too much money on going out to eat, because I rarely get to bring my food with me. When I do bring food, it rarely covers enough for a meal. It only makes me not need an appetizer.

Ugh. Downside: I spend lots of $$$ I could use on things more important (family, kids, wife, savings, gear, etc.)

Upside: I eat well and plenty.
"The worker has the right to leave his boss, but can she do it? And if she does quit him, is it in order to lead a free life; where she will have no master but herself? No, she leaves to sell herself to another employer. She's driven by the same hunger. Thus the worker's liberty is only a theoretical freedom, lacking any means of realization; an utter falsehood."
