Eating healthy at college can be difficult. Dining halls are temping with their displays of pizzas and cupcakes and it can be difficult to find time to make full meals for yourself. There’s nothing wrong with indulging every once in a while, but establishing a healthy diet in college is a must. Some of us live in dorms with nothing but a fridge and a microwave. Others have a full kitchen. Regardless of your living situation, there are ways to manage eating healthy and balancing your diet.
If you are living in a dorm there are certain no-bake meal options that are healthy and easy. For breakfast, oatmeal is a go-to inexpensive and healthy option. Try Quaker’s lower sugar or high fiber options. They taste great and leave you full for hours at a time. Greek yogurt is another healthy option. Buy a bigger container and have a little each day and it will last you a while. Add some granola and fruit and there’s a great meal option that won’t cost you too much. For lunch and dinner, there are some frozen meal options that taste delicious and because they’re frozen, they don’t go bad. Kashi and Lean Cuisine have some great, unique, frozen entrees. You’re bound to find something that you like, as there is so much variety.
