5 Creative ~ Healthy ~ Meals to Make on Campus

Eating Healthy at school can actually taste good

5 Creative ~ Healthy ~ Meals to Make on Campus

Villanova's Campus has a very healthy stigma surrounding it: people are working out every day and constantly wear their Lululemon workout outfits to class. Although everyone here is relatively healthy, sometimes it is hard to come up with new, interesting healthy meals to eat. Now that I am a sophomore I have figured out some new meals to eat that are on the healthier side and taste great.

1. The Holy Grounds Oatmeal... with Peanut Butter

The Holy Grounds oatmeal is a cult classic on campus, but an easy way to add some protein to this meal is to add some peanut butter. The library still sells the Justin's Peanut Butter packets and adding one of these to the peanut butter tastes great and also allows for you to get some protein in this high carb meal.

2. Avocado Toast


For those who are unaware: Pit now has guacamole all day long! Toast a piece of whole wheat bread, add avocado, and a fried egg from the omelette station and you have made a pretty decent avocado toast. Pairing this with any fruit makes for a well balanced breakfast.

3. Chicken Caesar Salad Wrap

This might seem like an obvious wrap to make, but its a meal that I completely disregarded my first year at Villanova. Any of the sandwich stations on campus have both grilled chicken and caesar dressing so it is easy to make this salad wrap. A bonus of making this is in Pit is that they can now toast your wrap.

4. A Freshens Smoothie with Greek Yogurt


The Freshens smoothies on campus might seem like a good choice, but the majority of the smoothies are made with sorbet which ends up adding unnecessary calories and sugar. Instead, ask for the smoothie to be made with the greek yogurt and get the smaller size, which is still super filling.

5. Homemade Burrito Bowl

The dining halls have a ton of great options, you just have to be creative. Find a bowl and fill it with rice from the stir fry station, ask the sandwich station for grilled chicken, and find additional toppings from the salad station and you have made a tasty burrito bowl. This is another great option because you have the ability to control what goes in your burrito bowl.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
