I've been having trouble with getting protein during the workday, since I don't have access to a refrigerator (til April, when I go back to my normal work location) and even with icepacks, things only seem to stay cold for a few hours. And even if it's still safe, I am really grossed out by cold food that's heading toward room temp. I'm also having the issue of what I bring sounding terrible once I'm at work, which means throwing food away :(
I was thinking that vegetarian jerky would be a good idea, since it's nonperishable and it's not full of sugars like most protein bars or high in fat like nuts. Unfortunately, the one with the most protein and lowest sodium (I'm trying to keep my intake in check) is Tofurky Jurky and it's only available online by the case - and what if i HATE it? I may try a couple other brands first to see if jerky is even something I'll eat.
