    I loooove Tuna!

    Also I always have a bag of the dollar Kroger brand pretzels. Just dont eat em on a cut, good for bulking though. Grab about 5 at a time and munch on em slowly drinking water.

    Also go to your "organic section" at the store. They have some great chips that taste amazing and are better than all the junk food. yet natural and healthy. All natural baked potato chips with a kiss of salt....ooohhh

    I love tuna as long as it isn't plain. I ate that so much the past two months, bleh. Mix a little mustard or Mayo and diced pickles. mmmm

    Or the flavored tuna, gotta be careful though lots of hidden stuff in the marinade

    Home made granola bars work pretty well too... Sprinkle in some almonds and then throw some protein powder in there, maybe some dried fruit.

    They've only just started selling this over here, although I've been making it for years. Great stuff for snacking on.

    Others I like:

    Fruits (especially portable ones...apples, pears, bananas)
    Any sort of nut/seed, but especially: walnuts, almonds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds.
    Pre-cooked chicken breast
    Celery/Carrot/Cucumber sticks.

    I like the 98 cent Salmon packs. It's not as fishy as tuna. I also mixed it with sofrito.

    Pumpkin Seeds, Sunflower Seeds, Walnuts, Almonds

    I just tried pumpkin seeds for the first time a few weeks ago. Those things take like potato chips, and they're awesome for your prostate. The omega 6:3 is a little out of kilter (~14:1,) but very few foods have a good omega 3 content.

    The good news is that they're high in fiber and in healthy fats (omega 6s, but still healthy.) So they'll help to keep you full even with smaller servings. And oh yeah, Pumpkin seeds have about 11g protein per 1/4 cup, sunflower seeds have 9g of protein, and I think Almonds and Walnuts are each a little lower (7g, 5g) respectively.
