13 Quick Snacks You Can Make Or Grab From Any Dining Hall Or Dorm Room
Juliana Ferreri

I thought of this topic as I left my schools dining hall with my favorite snack that I always grab. I'm going to list a range of snacks from healthy to unhealthy. I hope you consider packing a large bag or container in your bag when you head over to your school's dining hall.

1. Banana and Nutella

You can never go wrong with a banana and Nutella. It isn't the healthiest, but it's probably the best food in the cafeteria. This is easily storable not having to be placed in the fridge at all. If you love Nutella then this is the snack for you!

2. Cookies

Schools usually have some cookies or dessert out that could remind you of mom's home baking. The taste definitely doesn't compare to mom's baking but if you're in a hurry you would definitely enjoy this for a snack.

PSA if you have an Insomnia Cookies place at your school then order right away, you won't regret it.

3. Banana and peanut butter

Banana and peanut butter is great for people who love peanut butter. There is nothing like having a ripe banana and some peanut butter, they make each other better when eaten together. Grab three and store them in your fridge, and bring a jar of peanut butter from home.

4. Fruit salad

When I say fruit salad, I mean take a container and toss a bunch of fruit together. I wish there could be pomegranates, but we will have to settle for pineapple, melon and some berries. Pack a container and go for it!

5. Cereal

Dry cereal is great for a quick eat that you can carry with you at all times. Cereal is great with or without the milk and can be eaten all the time.

6. Granola

Granola is sweet and good especially when you add honey. It's a great snack for when you're in your dorm and don't want to walk to the cafeteria. It's a healthy alternative and great source of fiber. Grab it and go.

7. Yogurt

Yogurt needs to be refrigerated so hopefully, you're on your way to a cold place. The only way I can eat yogurt is with a lot of berries to make it a little sweeter. Yogurt is super healthy and great for your body. Definitely grab this snack on your way to the cafe.

8. Carrots and celery sticks

Carrots and celery are better than a bag of chips. Even though celery tastes like water it balances out when eaten with carrots. They are great cold out of the fridge for a refreshing snack.

9. A small salad to go

Salads are a great way to curve your hunger. If you aren't too hungry I suggest making it small with a light dressing. But you are, you can easily add proteins like grilled chicken or chickpeas and cannellini beans to become heavier and a more sustainable meal.

10. Bagel

Bagels are great when you want to have a snack before class. You can carry it as you walk too class! It's a very filling snack. Whether it is toast or a bagel you can put peanut butter, cream cheese, or butter across the top.

11. Apple and peanut butter

If you haven't noticed, I love peanut butter. An apple is really sweet and perfect by itself or with peanut butter. If you ever want a healthy alternative to chips this is the snack for you.

12. Bean salad

Bean salad is a great source of protein that leaves you feeling pleasantly full. It's a simple snack that is healthier and packed full of long-lasting energy than any other in order.

13. Mixed vegetables

Eating mixed vegetables is a great source of energy while also being good for your body. This can easily be stored in a container and stored in a refrigerator.

I hope this article made you hungry and gave you some good ideas for healthy alternatives to bring to your dorm or class.

8 Spotify Playlists To Get You In The Autumn Mood

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

Autumn Playlists
King of Wallpapers

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?

Halloween is a fun holiday for everyone of all ages. There are so many fun things to do in the month of October before Halloween and the day of Halloween. I love Halloween especially with all the candy and different types of goodies. Halloween is for everyone that enjoys to be a part of this wonderful holiday and also be careful on Halloween as well. It gives everyone a chance to show what they love to do as well.

Aside from the great hits like "Dreams," "Linger," and "Zombie," you may not know many other songs by "The Cranberries." These three songs are played rather frequently, and it would be hard to imagine someone not recognizing at least one of the three. If you haven't, look them up, and then come back and read this list.
