5 Quick And Easy Vegetarian Snacks That Will Finally Convert You To Team Veg

Bon appetit!


Many people think that in order to be a vegetarian you have to sacrifice the flavor of your food, but that is not the case. Below are 5 of my personal favorite snacks for any aspiring vegetarian to try out!

1. Avocado and quinoa

My favorite way to eat this is to dice half an avocado in the skin, then gradually mix with the quinoa while eating. This is fastest with a microwavable single serve cup of quinoa and my personal favorite as a snack.

2. Sauteed portabello mushroom

I will usually make this in a pan and towards the end of the cooking time add spinach or other veggies. The mushroom takes about 5 minutes to cook, but make sure it is dark gray or brown before removing it from the heat. This is perfect if you are having a meal with meat-eaters.

3. Chickpeas

This recipe takes a bit longer but is easy to reheat if you make extra. Rinse a can of chickpeas and place them in a single layer on a baking sheet, then add olive oil, paprika, and garlic salt, making sure to coat the chickpeas thoroughly before placing them in the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

My cousin first made this for a get together at her apartment to make wedding plans, and it is the perfect snack to munch on like chips. I prefer to cook them enough that the seasoning sets in, but not so long that they get hard and crunchy, although some people prefer that texture.

4. Mushroom and cheese quesadillas

This is an easy microwave meal where you place shredded cheese and canned mushrooms in a tortilla and microwave for about a minute. This is another quick recipe that can be a snack or a meal depending on your chosen portion.

5. Fruit

As a sugar maniac, I love sweet snacks, and fruit is a great alternative to processed food. My personal favorite is raspberries, but when I am not feeling well I find that bananas can help settle the stomach or headaches.

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.

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
