sugarrae, bill and myself were having a somewhat OT conversation about snacks

I know my desk is always stocked with dry roasted peanuts and combos when I can find them

my desk drawer often has some chocolate in it, though that is more to hide it from my wife than to eat it myself as I am on the salty side of snacking

this is always accompanied by the drinking cycle of coffee to ginger ale to beer

what keeps you going during the many hours at the desk?

I'm into fruits and grains.

Dr. Pepper and Orville Redenbacher. The caramel kind is OK if I'm feeling a need for sweet.

On the plus side, butter popcorn ALWAYS means a break ;)

Three cups of tea.
One bar of plain chocolate.
Loads of water (not too much).
Some times a hot chocolate.
A good breakfast and good lunch!

Water, caffine free Pepsi (room temp) and Cheerios (dry). I have to get up and walk all the way to the kitchen for anything else.

I save the chocolate for when I'm walking on my treadmill. :)

Coffee, diet Mountain Dew and light beer. Usually, though not necessarily, in that order.

Just water and smokes. No snacks; food time equals break time and a chance to step away from the machine.

Diet Coke, in the can so I can crumble it into a small wad of metal afterwards. I usually drink about five a day.

Coffee, smokes, IPod. an occasional pepsi, and even more rare, a food-like substance.

Dr. Pepper only!

....I find it difficult to snack on stuff while I'm working...

popcorn get everything greasy....(me and Orvile go way back...)

stuff in a bowl invariably gets dropped into the keyboard...or the dog has her snout right where I'm working waiting for a nibble of "whatever" with big sad "are you gonna give me some?" eyes...(that's a real distraction...)

>What powers your website?

Fear! Food, caffine, booze.....all bad for my websites!

Fear, a great incentive. When I get lazy (which is often) I lose. When I get hungry I feed on the fear of losing!

My websites are simply powered by the fear of losing!

I don't need food, smokes, alcohol, women or anything else to instill the fear of losing, I just need rational thought (although I am partial to all of the above).

So, for me, what powers my websites is exactly the opposite to those things I choose to indulge in once it is empowered!

It goes in a cycle......make a load of money.....have a great time spending it.....worry about funds.....make a load of money.......have a great time spending it.....and so on and on!

Tea, Milk, Fruit Juices, bananas, apples, oranges, 1 bag of crisps.

I have a healthier diet these days, since a recent shock.

In the past that list would have read:

Coke, Pain au Chocolat, bacon sandwiches, nuts (salted) and as many bags of crisps as I could fit in my drawer, ahhh, the old days...

I hope the shock was only the display on your scale and not something grave.

My diet currently consists of several cups of coffee in the morning. Then at about 2 pm I eat one or two sandwiches and a meal in the evening. I also try to eat at least an apple a day, but most of the time I forget.

It always makes me wonder how much energy there must be in that coffee that keeps me running.

from the looks of things we snack pretty well but we should really address the beverages ;)

Chocolat (these days with almonds) and an espresso (my wife bought me a Nespresso machine last year; very nice).

I also keep some water nearby.

The choco-espresso double is great for programming :)

Lots of coffee. Mixed nuts. Daily omelette for brunch. A piece of chicken for dinner. Thats about it... (Currently on low-carb diet to reduce the size of my corporation...)

Mine are powered by fear (and statistics).

Food to keep the brain functional:

Cliff Bars (carrot cake!)

Breakfast Drink (with Spirulina!)

Hacker Stew (usualy beef, seafood or turkey and potatoes)

Tofu and Seaweed.

Apples, Almonds, Avocados.

Corn, potato, rice chips

Red wine occasionally

Water frequently. Expose to sunlight when necessary.

Food to keep the soul functional? That's a different thread.
