14 Meals College Students Eat
White Bear Lake Magazine

College: it's hard enough as it is trying to get through classes and other activities. Eating healthy, too? No, that's definitely not going to happen. We're constantly on the go and also constantly broke. In order to save money and save time, we have to choose to have some interesting meals. This list is the list of basic meals that college students eat. So without further ado, we'll get started.

1. Ramen

Ah, yes, Ramen. When one thinks of Ramen, they automatically think of broke college students everywhere. One cannot have a list of meals eaten in college without mentioning Ramen. Make sure you cook it properly and don't burn the building down.

2. Easy Mac

Oh yes, the almighty Easy Mac. I do not like Ramen (gasp), so Easy Mac is the closest thing I've got to it. Ready in 3.5 minutes and also cheap to buy.

3. Mac and Cheese

While Easy Mac is quicker, it is still cheap enough to buy a box of Mac and Cheese and cook it. Eat the entire box, treat yourself.

4. Pasta

Pasta is good and easy to make. It's also what I'm having for dinner tonight.

5. Pizza

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F29%2F635975574061944198793400818_pizza.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=287&h=64cc6c7c84240a033cce451ba533a65ece936f7e2f3ac613474594958ca0fe61&size=980x&c=3290139483 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F29%252F635975574061944198793400818_pizza.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D287%26h%3D64cc6c7c84240a033cce451ba533a65ece936f7e2f3ac613474594958ca0fe61%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3290139483%22%7D" expand=1]

Pizza is such a great invention. Greasy, Cheesy, and inexpensive, it's good whatever way you have it. One does not consume pizza, but instead gets consumed by the pizza.

6. Pizza Rolls

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F29%2F635975575658276836-578713679_pizza%2520rolls.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=800&h=654833fe2e5e863c2c618ac1800e785b97c36b1d7ebec0ef21292145c95186ea&size=980x&c=614777078 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F29%252F635975575658276836-578713679_pizza%252520rolls.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D800%26h%3D654833fe2e5e863c2c618ac1800e785b97c36b1d7ebec0ef21292145c95186ea%26size%3D980x%26c%3D614777078%22%7D" expand=1]

One cannot mention pizza on such a list without also mentioning pizza rolls. Throw them in the microwave for a while, and you're golden. What a time to be alive.

7. Bagel Bites

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F29%2F635975576788069139-499338736_bagel%2520bites.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=800&h=efb4b09ac6e289634c1e83b6f5e944957b2e76ede5257869e4764d1e45e455de&size=980x&c=612449162 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F29%252F635975576788069139-499338736_bagel%252520bites.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D800%26h%3Defb4b09ac6e289634c1e83b6f5e944957b2e76ede5257869e4764d1e45e455de%26size%3D980x%26c%3D612449162%22%7D" expand=1]

I, of course, could not leave out bagel bites. Definitely one of the most powerful collaborations of all time.

8. Chips

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F29%2F6359755778386408891556094381_chips.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=98&h=dec48a38bf1038ba29d424029525308cf90241c4f479bc87d1a1070c982892e6&size=980x&c=4213308419 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F29%252F6359755778386408891556094381_chips.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D98%26h%3Ddec48a38bf1038ba29d424029525308cf90241c4f479bc87d1a1070c982892e6%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4213308419%22%7D" expand=1]

Chips, of course. Because sometimes, it's just one of those days.

9. Nachos

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F29%2F635975579601153429148571418_nachos.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=379&h=7d8b896ee0f2d2ed82a648256d631e45053af4d231a7c27289ffe95fa6dd862d&size=980x&c=730455306 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F29%252F635975579601153429148571418_nachos.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D379%26h%3D7d8b896ee0f2d2ed82a648256d631e45053af4d231a7c27289ffe95fa6dd862d%26size%3D980x%26c%3D730455306%22%7D" expand=1]

This gif really says it all. Everyone loves nachos. If anybody does not love nachos, they need to tell me now, because I don't think I know anyone who doesn't.

10. Tacos

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F29%2F635975581857709215-92115625_taco.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=761&h=35369ef5d72bea70f0bf64e949057d1948306e142e19a0408dbce637529d1c08&size=980x&c=3707578602 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F29%252F635975581857709215-92115625_taco.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D761%26h%3D35369ef5d72bea70f0bf64e949057d1948306e142e19a0408dbce637529d1c08%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3707578602%22%7D" expand=1]

What is the best day of the week? Taco Tuesday, obviously. Tacos are amazing, and they pack a lot in for a little. They're great.

11. French Fries

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F29%2F635975583875578377-805279606_fries.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=773&h=1b977ba2f3f4e453d29310eba60c3ae8ea1e5185e36ec7d1d51e07ade0254ba7&size=980x&c=2619807275 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F29%252F635975583875578377-805279606_fries.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D773%26h%3D1b977ba2f3f4e453d29310eba60c3ae8ea1e5185e36ec7d1d51e07ade0254ba7%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2619807275%22%7D" expand=1]

This is another food that everyone I know likes. Fries. They're good with just about anything. Same Anderson Cooper, same.

12. Yogurt

Yogurt is something that is really easy to buy and eat on the go. You can eat yogurt anywhere and it's OK.

13. Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream

Ice cream is so good, especially Ben and Jerry's. How can you not eat a whole pint by yourself? Delicious.

14. Fast Food/Takeout

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F29%2F635975587533427990140344481_fast%2520foos.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=121&h=034729d075ebf8a722b618478edbb5c0029f094075fa4d25ec184e0adfd72f86&size=980x&c=1979265395 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F29%252F635975587533427990140344481_fast%252520foos.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D121%26h%3D034729d075ebf8a722b618478edbb5c0029f094075fa4d25ec184e0adfd72f86%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1979265395%22%7D" expand=1]Fast food: because you're lazy.

While these are some of the highlights, there are many other meals that college students regularly eat. If I missed one of your favorites, let me know. It will definitely make the list next time. If you haven't eaten all of these and you're a college student, you'll get there. I hope you all enjoy your next meal!

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
