Life of a college student can be pretty rocky sometimes. You often just don’t have disposable money to go out to eat every night without a care in the world. This is real life. We’re all adults now. We have to learn to manage our money and what we spend it on. And, unfortunately, quality food often doesn’t cut the list. Therefore, we’re forced to cram our bodies with whatever we can put in it that is quick to make and cheap to buy. So here’s a list of foods that I often find myself or my roommates munching on in-between classes.
11. Cliff Bars- This is one that is so relevant to me it’s no joke. They’re the perfect on-the-go bar for breakfast before your 8am. They’re also not gross junk food. They’re extremely healthy for you and packed with the protein and nutrients you need to have the energy to take on the day. Plus, they’re delish.
10.PB&J- Seriously, find myself making these real quick for a fast lunch ALL THE TIME. But cmon, who doesn’t love a good peanut butter and jelly? It’s a classic.
9. Grilled Cheese- Like the pb&j, this is a quick and convenient sandwich that is easy to make and tastes good. Classic childhood grub.
8. Mac n Cheese- These are a staple in our kitchen at my dorm. You get the kind prepackaged in their little individual bowls. You add some water, pop it in the microwave, and then add the little cheese pack. And BOOM. You’ve got a nice hot bowl of delicious noodles covered in cheese. I have one roommate who I’m pretty sure lives solely off of these things.
7. Ramen- Now I’m personally not a ramen girl. However, you hear so many college students talk about how this is the one thing they live off of for their entire four years through school. So, it had to make an appearance on the list. It makes sense though. It’s cheap and one of the simplest things to make.
