Cheap, Easy, and Healthy Foods for the Busy College Student
I was talking to my cousin the other day, he's a college sophomore and he is your typical student doesn't have much time, never prepared a meal in his life, but he asked me for some advice about what I did when I was back in school that would be cheap, easy, and healthy. I thought this was a great question and I was more than happy to offer him some suggestions.
hard boiled eggs
milk and cereal
bagel and cream cheese
fruit and yogurt
muffin and jam
turkey breast sandwich
-requires turkey breast, lettuce, tomatoes, jalapenos, banana peppers, any other toppings you like, bread
peanut butter and jelley sandwiches
-requires natural organic peanut butter
You just need a pan and then just add some seasoning to the chicken and its easy to grill. Google it if u want exact cooking time. It's good to grill a bunch then save for later (saves a lot of time, it's not as fresh tho).
chicken nuggets and bbq sauce
Just follow directions on bag most you can just microwave. Not very healthy tho.
requires veggie patties - Just take them out a few minutes before you cook should defrost them or stick them in mircowave and hit the defrost button.
-requires refried (canned) beans
grilled cheese sandwiches
-needs sandwich maker
mac and cheese
tuna fish sandwich
Some kind of salad (can actually be pretty tasty and not too expensive, very healthy):
-some kind of meat
Yogurt for snack in between meals.
Fruits like banana or apples for snack in between.
