As I've mentioned in passing, I'm currently living in a dorm in Moscow for two months. I do not have access to a refrigerator or a stove. I am often hungry between and after meals, probably because the vegetarian food available to me here is not very protein-rich. I need some suggestions for things I could possibly keep in my room to munch on.  


So far, I keep around peanut butter (so lucky to find this!), a bananas, some bread, honey.


All I have in the way of utensils is a plate, a fork, a knife, a spoon, and a glass.

Pickles? Shouldn't find them tricky to source where you are.


Vegetable broth powder?

Do you have access to an electric kettle? Then at least a broth based soup in a mug is warming and filling with bread.

I would stock up on cans of soup.  They're pretty good at room temperature too.  Or if you can't find a can opener, I guess boxes of soup are probably better anyway :)

It's also worth remembering that most things don't really *need* to be in a fridge to stay OK - especially if you eat them up within a few days. Cheese will get a bit sweaty and may be less pleasant, but won't go 'off' as such. Nothing at all will happen to margarine. Pickles certainly won't go off (I love munching on pickles). Olives might be worth a thought too. If you can get spready stuff in tubes, that should be fine too (tomato puree, cheese spread, yeast pate)

Trail mix of any kind might be a good idea.

Obviously lots of protein and yummy, healthy ingredients.

I keep triscuit crackers work good i munch on them at work. Granola bars rice cakes work good too. I keep snacks in my purse so i always keep things that dont spoil. Oh and nuts too.
