Like a sudden break-up, hunger can seem to come out of nowhere. And while you can’t do much to prep yourself for an out-of-the-blue "it’s not you, it’s me," you can be armed to face the munchies wherever you are.

The key is to bring high-protein options with you or stash them in your desk drawer so you have something filling within reach and don’t feel tempted to hit the vending machine or drugstore. Keri Gans, R.D., author of The Small Change Diet, recommends looking for snacks that have at least 10 grams of protein and between 100 and 200 calories. [Tweet this tip!] These 10 eats travel well and are ideal between meals.
