Healthy Lunches for College Students

Being in college is tough stuff. You’re cramped for time, broke & without any real appliances. You know you’re supposed to eat well, but dining hall pizza isn’t cutting it and all you’ve got is a microwave. Don’t worry, we totally understand where you’re coming from.

Eating healthy is crucial to your academic success. You’ll feel more focused, have more energy for those late night study sessions, and you’ll get sick less often. So, are you ready to tackle some delicious recipes in your dorm room? Check out our favorites below:

Microwave Scrambled Eggs

Here’s what you’ll need:
