It’s September, which means it’s time to go back to school. While eating out every day would be nice for our taste buds, it’s not nice for our wallets or thighs. Plus, who can really afford to eat and snack out every time your stomach grumbles during 3 hour lectures? If tuition and books hasn’t already burned a hole in your wallet, your constant need to eat out definitely will. Then what will you use to go out with friends after stressful lectures or a cram sesh? Exactly. So skip the McD’s and whatever other fast food horrors they sell on campus and opt to pack your lunch. These recipes don’t take too much effort and you can just make lots of it to eat for the week. Store them in the fridge and simply grab-to-go when you’re rushing to your 9am class because your schedule sucks but lunch doesn’t have to.
Instead of spending your hard earned money on Chinese food on campus, why not make your own. This one is just a veggie version but simply add any meat you wish! Cheaper, and less greasier than your local Manchu Wok or Panda Express.
Pasta salads are great because you can just throw them together and pretty much add whatever vegetables you want. This one has corn, tomatoes, squash and ricotta. Again, great to just make a whole bunch, separate into tupperwares and store in the fridge.
Macaroni salads are great. They are so yummy and the best thing about them is that they don’t need to be warmed up. So when you’re starving and can’t find a working microwave on campus, you can still whip it out and start munching.
Quinoa has been making its way into many diets as of late. It seems as though it has become the carb of choice. Maybe it’s a fad but hey, we’re embracing it.
Another perfect meal to make lots of and store in the fridge. The hardest part of this meal is trying to not eat it before you pack them for the week.
If you really aren’t about quinoa or pasta, you could simply opt for a wrap instead. Instead of paying for wraps that cost a ridiculous amount, just make your own. Wraps are so simple and easy, you could literally slap whatever you want in them and roll them up.
What’s your favorite go-to easy meal to make?
