Feeling Hungry? Here Are The 5 Best Snacks For College Students

Are you a college freshman still struggling to remember to eat three times a day? Are you a high school senior already planning ahead? (Good for you, because I'm definitely in the first camp.) Here are five foods you don't want to forget when making your college grocery list:

1. Animal Crackers

These are good for any time of day, they're super quick and easy to eat, and they travel well if you need a snack on the run!

2. Easy Mac

While we all know real mac 'n' cheese is worlds better, sometimes you just need a fast snack on the go! (Just remember, if you're concerned about carcinogens, dump the contents into a glass bowl before you microwave it!)

3. Bananas

Not only are they a great source of potassium, they're also an easy, healthy, Gwen-Stefani-endorsed breakfast option. Just make sure you don't buy more than you will eat, because they go bad quickly.

4. Cereal


You just can't go wrong with this classic. It's so much more than a breakfast food: dry or with your favorite kind of milk, it can be a snack, a late-night dinner, or really whatever you want it to be.

5. Frozen Vegetables

Last, but certainly not least, make sure you never run out of veggies. It's the thing you will least expect to miss, but dining hall living can leave you feeling less than satisfied in the vegetable department. Plus, they pretty much never go bad. So pack some peas and carrots!

Make sure you grab all these foods when you make your next grocery run! What is your favorite quick college snack?

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today.

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.
