Food Review

-

Since I was never satisfied with the standard Ramen for my dorm food, I became creative with meals and snacks for the three years I lived on campus. Here are some healthy options to take the guesswork out of snacking and preparing a simple dorm meal.

Though it cost me some of my meals for dining out, the benefits from healthy eating outweighed my desire for fatty snacks. I also ate at the Fresh regularly and other dining places on campus.



FRIDGE:

(One must consider sharing the fridge with your roommate who will probably take up half the space.)

-Hummus

-Mini orange juices

-Small non-fat milk

-Greek yogurt or non-fat yogurt

-String cheese

-Coffee creamer

-Fruit (Pick fruits that are simple to eat such as apples, bananas, grapes, oranges, blueberries and strawberries)

-Veggies (Baby carrots, spinach and vegetables you can cut up and put in Tupperware such as bell peppers, celery and cucumber)

-Low-fat ranch dressing (for dipping purposes and salads)

-Salsa

-Sliced turkey and cheese

-Boiled eggs



PANTRY:

-Whole wheat bread

FREEZER:

(Space is limited in dorm refrigerators, so choose wisely)

-Frozen steam bag vegetables

-Healthy Choice Greek yogurt ice cream



SNACK COMBINATIONS:
