See, you pour them into a cup and that way you don't have to waste time fiddling with a spoon, you can just slurp it up with one hand.

That's a method that hardcore gamer tested and approved
I thought I was the only one that did this...
People always thought it was strange that I ate cereal out of a cup like that. But it just makes less of a mess. I don't do this for gaming though.

ramen noodles in a cup = win!

Nothing that can scatter crumbs of any kind. I like taking Basic 4 (cereal) and putting it in a cup (no milk) and chowing on that.

Monster Java drinks are essential.

Though, back in the day, we used eat tons of doritos, drink tons of pepsi, coffee, and when it came out, redbull. I can remember gaming for 3 days straight when I was a teenager on many occasions.

Hell, we'd have a PC, N64, couple of playstations hooked up and just game. Aaaah, how awesome it was coming down from those caffeine highs, feeling like a zomvie, twitching, eyes bulging begging for sleep.... A couple years later we replaced the caffeine with booze.

I keep a fruit bowl next to my desk. Apples, Bananas and Pears in it. Usually have some nuts there as well and occasionally some carrots. I like to keep healthy and these are easy pick up and bite foods while gaming.

Water and salted peanuts
post #18 of 147
For my meals:
I stop. Shut down the PC. Get up. Sit at the dining table. Enjoy my meal with my wife who generously makes my meals on a daily basis and children. 30-45 minutes later, back to gaming.

For munchies:
Unsalted walnuts, pecans, and peanuts are always at my desk for munchies or the wife will bring me sandwiches if I ask. But I try not to make a habit of eating at my gaming station. I'm a stickler for crumbs being beyond the dining room/kitchen.

Very nice sir
I wish my dad was like you when I was growing up.

Pizza. It takes a 30 second phone call and a 15 minute wait, and it arrives by magic to your door.
