Hi Adam,
From the above ^ Don't 'try' to have a meal before you workout, (it is a must.) This is a time when you can eat (your not at work.) Make pre and post mandatory, no excuses. That would be a good start. It seems like you already know where you need to eat more, so this is good too.

Everyone's suggestions are great, and making your own weight gainers rock.

I understand about having jobs not conducive to eating. When you can't eat have to sneak it! It is all about getting creative. When I worked in retail I would hide food under the front counter near the register. When I worked at a children's art museum I had to wear an apron. I would hide food in my pockets. It is a no no to eat in a museum, so I would walk between exhibits and shovel food in my mouth when no one was looking. Also excuse yourself to use the bathroom. I would put walnuts or even peanut butter sandwiches in my apron. Protein bars and those tubes of squeezable peanut butter are great too.
