You’re working a 12 hour night shift. It’s 2:00 AM. You’re starved, and there’s no way to go get food, and nobody is delivering to you at this time of the night. What’s a person to do? Luckily, you are smart, and you have a nursing bag stuffed with all kind of snacks!
What kind of snacks do you have in there? Assuming that you have a really big bag, you may find:
1- Chips! When all else fails, chips will make you happy. Some of my favorites are Fritos, Doritos, and of course some Funions.
2- Cookies! It’s hard to beat some oatmeal raisin, chocolate chip or even peanut butter cookies.
3- Fruit! What tastes better than an orange, apples, or maybe some kiwi fruit? Better yet, it’s healthy too!
4- Popcorn! As long as you have a microwave at work, an individual bag of popcorn can be perfect! There are so many varieties now including extra buttery, jalapeno, skinny girl, etc.
5- Breakfast bars! Low in calories, high in taste- breakfast bars can be the perfect snack to sneak into work.
6- Crackers! My favorites are Wheat Thins, peanut butter, Ritz, and anything that I can put Cheese Whiz on.
7- Cereal! If you can scrounge up some milk from the kitchen, any kind of cereal makes a great snack during work. Personal favorites are Captain Crunch, Blueberry, and Reeses.
8- Oatmeal! Put some individual oatmeal packets in your bag, add water, microwave- fantastic snack!
9- Pudding! There’s just no bad time to eat pudding. Even Bill Cosby can’t hurt the snack.
10- Nuts! Every nurse should carry a bag of nuts or two in her bag. I’m thinking about peanuts, cashews, and pistachios.
So what are your favorite snacks to bring to work? What kinds of goodies do you pack to carry you through the shift?
