It’s time to make this blog come to life again. I was so busy over the summer with classes. I can’t believe how quickly the time passed. I really miss blogging and talking to you about this and that. I am in the process of coming up with new ideas for my blog and vlog. For the first time back, I want to talk about a few food items I keep on hand in my dorm room.
I think it is important to have a few go to items always in reach. It helps keep me on track nutritionally and also keeps me on budget. Here is a list of items I always keep in my room:
1. 1. 24 case of water
2. 2. Granola bars
3. 3. Peanut butter and jelly
4. 4. Apples
Now I know these few things might seem funny, but they have become my staples. I like to always have water in my room so I don’t have to buy a bottle of water out of the vending machine or be tempted with a Diet Coke. (Please remember to recycle your plastic bottles.) The granola bars are a great grab and go breakfast. I love to get ready for class and walk out the door with a granola bar. This is an easy way to get a good breakfast that will hold me over until lunch. I always keep one in my purse too because you never know when a snack attack is going to hit. When standing in front of the huge granola wall in the grocery isle, be sure to check for bars with fiber and lower sugar. You need the fiber to fill you up and you don’t need a sugar overload first thing in the morning. My favorite is Special K Fruit Crisps. They are like Pop Tarts for adults. Seriously good. Ok stop laughing at the peanut butter and jelly. It’s my favorite lunch food. Listen, I’m a college student which means I don’t have much space in my room to store food and I don’t have a lot of extra money. PB&J is easy, quick and yummy for people of all ages. It is so easy to make a PB&J and relax for a while after a busy morning of classes. It’s also easy to eat on the go or with one hand if I’m working through lunch. Peanut butter makes a great healthy snack with apples too. Apples are easy to store in my dorm room and are oh so tasty dipped in a little peanut butter.
Let me know a few of the things you like to keep on hand and stay tuned for the return of the nice girl blogs!
And remember, nice girls always finish first.
