Veggies, mostly baby carrots, are my main go-to snack. Cheap, convenient, and you can eat a bucket load and still not worry about calories. Cucumbers are good, I peel and chop em, I like to sprinkle a little seasoned salt on, too. I've been lazy and just doing baby carrots mostly lately but I used to take a few minutes every other morning and prep for two days, chop a variety of peppers, carrots, broccoli, cucumber, add some cherry tomatoes, and bring a big container to work.
It's so much easier to eat healthy if you're away from home, hungry, and already have a giant container of veggies.

Secondary snack, in small servings because they are energy dense (high in calories): nuts. Lately I've been getting plain peanuts and cashews, drizzling on some olive oil, and adding some chili powder. I toss that in a container along with some raisins and chocolate chips, sometimes some cereal, and shake it all up. Delicious. I measure all ingredients on a kitchen scale, enter the whole thing into a recipe on myfitnesspal, and split it into portions I can keep track of.

Fruit is always a good choice.

I often throw a can of tuna in my pack, just in case. I can eat it plain with a fork. It's not great, but it's solid nutrition. Canned chicken or salmon for variety.

I also bring a plastic bottle of dry grape nuts to crunch on. They're high in calories/energy, so I don't fill up on them, but a mouthful goes a long way.

It's better to prep these things, and pack a nice big bag of good food, before you're out and hungry. Makes the entire difference later.

Pistachios and raw almonds are a very good source of protein and fats. You can basically eat these non stop throughout the day. Good luck!!
