I don't think trying to find options for easy snacks makes me gay :p

honestly though, I try to limit my fruit intake. I eat some, but I dont like to make a habit out of it.

I don't think you have to worry about fruit, unless your eating 7 or 8 servings a day, which would be pretty hard.

Also you might think about beef jerky. Tasty and lots o protein.

I might even eat a slice of whole wheat bread on a day that I have worked out. Probably not on my off days (If I am trying to loose that is).

The low carb sticky has some other ideas.

Peanut butter. I will occasionally eat a spoonful or two plain. I also like to slice up an apple (when I have good ones, which is kind of rare here) and use peanut butter as a dip.

If I have some yogurt that doesn't have HFCS, and apple sauce without HFCS (both usually touted as "natural"), I like those either of those with cottage cheese. My wife thinks this is strange, but she doesn't like cottage cheese. Also almost any fruit with cottage cheese.

I'm a big fruit eater. In theory at least, I try to get my carbs from fruit and veggies.

I've seen a couple of suggestions that I prefer. Just grab anything in the refride thats meat, or cottage cheese, or something like natural yogurt (tzaytziki - sp?) are my favorites, and pile them onto a wasa bread. It's a whole wheat/rye crisp flatbead, but high in fiber, one of the few processed things I will even consider. Works for me.

Nutella. Just eat it with a spoon.

It has nuts in it, and it has WHEY POWDER so OBVIOUSLY it's good for you!

Seriously though, eggs eggs and more eggs. Reasonably cheap and so easy. If you have some veggies already prepared it's even easier. bang them all in the frying pan, add some ham or some other meat if you wish, mix up some eggs, and whack them on top of it. Scramble up eggs as you normally would and stick it on a plate. DONE!

Looks like sh*t but tastes pretty good.

Of course you could make a nice looking omelette but who can be bothered being all artistic with it.

Hard boiled eggs. It's economical, super easy to cook and to carry around.

Convenient store's sausages, do they count? It's very convenient though.
