So, everything imaginable.



If I did I would weigh 180kg.

We can't eat "on the floor" so snacking is a no-go, technically, but some of my supervisors are more lenient than others. However, I don't snack that much either way and usually just go nuts at the salad bar and in the bulk food aisle. And, on days when I fit it into my macros, I do hit up the bakery pretty intensely. Ha.

Do you get a free pass? I'd be pretty fucking immense myself if so...

No, which also helps with not eating as much. We do get a 20% discount, though, so when I do buy lunch, it's a pretty sweet deal. We have pretty monster-sized burgers for $5 (before the discount) so I hit those up sometimes on lift-days.

I don't stash food at school but I always take:

Peanuts, brazil nut, cashews, almonds, etc
Bananas
Paçoca, wich is crushed roasted peanuts with sugar and salt, and pressed into a cork shape. 120kcal and some protein per unit.

Wow, you all have some serious stashes! The only thing I always have are tea bags. I've been trying to be sure to have some kind of bar--currently I have 7.5 Nakd cocoa mint bars in my drawer. And I have leftover smokey pea soup that's going to be my dinner (going straight to practice so have to eat here). But that's it. Oh, and I also have a Viana Picknicker right now but I don't expect that to last the afternoon.

I don't need to stash since I'm never in for more than a few hours at a time and my boss likes to feed us. We have a cupboard full of food that we can help ourselves to (although that's not it's primary purpose). She doesn't understand what I eat so she gets lots of fruit. We got a new center manager who is vegan and he lets me have his soy milk in my tea and pure on my toast. I feel rather spoilt by them

That isn't normal? I often keep one in my bag for when I get hungry during longer seminars. I can run up to the staff kitchen to microwave it during the break so long as I don't get caught by someone who doesn't like students in the kitchen. It's an awesome snack

I'm a student and I literally bring a bag of produce with me to school. I'm in classes from 8:30 to 3 Monday - Thursday and have snacked on bunches of bananas, a crate of clementines and grapes, or what ever is in season :D
