Look at Jika-tabi - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jika-tabi. There are steel-toed versions if you want to use them as work boots.

No-cook options: avocados, jerky, olives, nuts (coconut, walnuts, anything really), cucumbers, carrots. Cooked options that "don't smell": cooked sweet potato "chips" (just baked fries, really), cooked veggies of any kind.

I think your job as a waitress would cover most of your needs, assuming you were busy and not sitting around, it's a lot of movement and carrying stuff around. I'd probably still try and lift heavy weights once or twice a week if possible.
