      The ghetto hotdog

      Hi everybody,
      I'm trying to come up with some snack ideas outside of the usual nuts/jerky/dried fruit. I'm a poor college student without a fridge, but I'm looking for something a little different. Does anyone have any ideas for stuff I can get from Whole Foods or something and eat without a ton of preparation? Thanks very much!

        you could get some kalamata olives and put them in olive oil and they will be stable at room temp and yummy Also, I like those seaweed snacks that health food stores have, particularly the wasabi flavored ones

          Lots of great ideas here - my little contribution is that there are some shelf stable anchovies (Omega 3s and salty goodness!) available. Be careful - not all are shelf stable...

            I know your pain all too well! I lived in a dorm where fridges weren't allowed back in the day, and it pretty much sucked. Though I wasn't primal back then (1992 -- yikes, I'm old!), my go-to snack actually was, now that I think about it. A can of tuna, mixed with a little EVOO and red wine vinegar. Now that we know cans may not be the best way to store our food, you can always get those tuna pouches to keep on hand.

              Microwaved sweet potato + butter & cinnamon

              Hard boiled eggs spread with pesto, hummus, baba ghanouj, or guac

                If you're OK not refrigerating almond butter , I think some of these might work well for you:

                  Forgot packaged pork rinds. Simple is the only option here ingredient list should be one thing (pork - very hard to find) or two things (pork and salt - less hard to find). MSG and some other "stuff" finds it way into many brands and types...

                    I'm really into canned tuna with apple cider vinegar (get the kind with the mother; it's awesome). Also, they make squeezable baby food packets that sound pretty good! Weird, but at least they're vegetables. I sometimes (often) also just eat salsa straight out of the jar. Check out Tanka bars on Amazon as well. Those Sea Snax things are really good, too.

                    I just admitted that I eat salsa straight from the jar in mass quantities . . . can you tell I'm in college?
