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?

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.


On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.

20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

... in case you needed another excuse to eat empanadas and churros.

20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

Like many of my wanderlust-ridden friends and family, I'll travel anywhere for the promise of good food. I once went to Thailand in pursuit of traditional massaman curry and Spain for authentic patatas bravas — neither of which let me down.

What usually ends up being the biggest letdown is coming home to miss the traditional, local cuisine. It may not have quite the same ambiance, but trying to cook authentic dishes at home can increase appreciation for the craft and culture behind them.

Ms. Alinejad shares photos of men in hijabs and women inside Iran who have taken part in a moment of 'stealthy freedom' by removing their hijabs to the outside world.

Be careful what you do and post


Going to Las Vegas for the weekend is practically a sacramental right of passage in college. It’s so crucial to our early adulthood development that Snapchat even made a filter that says “Vegas for the Weekend.” Damn Snapchat, you really do get it.
