Whether you’re a freshman in college or a graduate student trying to grind through the last year of classes, healthy yet cheap meals probably aren’t your number one priority. I mean you’re swarmed with projects, case studies, exams, and quizzes. How could you possibly have the brainpower left to get creative in the kitchen? Alongside that, you just dropped $400 on this semester’s required textbooks, so your bank account isn’t really what you would call flourishing.
I lived in a dorm room my freshman year of college at the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee, but I considered it a luxury dorm. I got extremely lucky and was put in the East tower in Sandburg Hall, which meant I had a full kitchen. (Lucky, I know) But, I had quite a few friends who weren’t so lucky and only had a microwave and mini refrigerator/freezer. I saw how difficult it was for them to cook meals – especially healthy ones.
This dorm room meal guide will be your new bff. I’ve come up with 32 days of breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and snacks that will not only save your wallet, but also your physique! Most food items and prices were retrieved from Target and buying the off-brand items (ex. Instead of buying Silk Unsweetened Almond Milk for $2.39, I chose Target’s Simply Balanced Unsweetened Almond Milk for $1.79.
The best part about this? All things can be made using a microwave, bowl, plate, fork, and or spoon. And you only need access to a mini refrigerator and freezer!
