10 Meal Ideas for Broke College Students

Long hours on campus can be grueling, especially on an empty stomach. Cafeteria and vending machine food is always extremely pricey, and it’s almost impossible to get a decent, affordable meal on a budget. I’ve created a list of 10 meal ideas for college students to bring to school with them to stay fed and sane. Each meal should cost $2 or less, an average of $10/week.

The ingredients listed are meant to be bought in bulk and parceled out to save money. Tupperware containers are also assumed to be available. Check the Dollar Tree for great deals on Tupperware!

10 College Meal Ideas for under $2

~ Canned soup ($1.25), ziplock of mixed veggies ($.25), tbsp hummus ($.25)

~ Egg salad sandwich ($1.25), handful of mixed nuts ($.75)

~ Protein bar ($1), tbsp peanut butter
($.25)

~ Caesar salad (from salad kit, bring half in Tupperware save other half for dinner) ($1) , add ½ avocado and fresh tomato slices for ($1)

~ 2 Baja Cafe burritos ($1), ziplock of tortilla chips ($.25), tbsp salsa, dip or hummus ($.75)

~ Grilled cheese ($1), tomato soup ($1)

Drain the chickpeas and place them in a bowl. Add your desired spices, I used smoked paprika, bbq spice, sea salt and some pepper. Incorporate the chickpeas with the spice, so everything is covered.
Spread the spiced chickpeas on a tray and place them in the middle of the oven for 30 min on 200c (or until they turn brown and chrispy)

Enjoy them as a healthy snack or as topping on you lunch or dinner ✨☺️

Vegan kale spread 🍃

Recipe:

Ingredients:
- kale

- pinenuts or other nuts you like, I also tried using pumpkinseeds

Add all the ingredients to a food processor in whatever amount you like, this recipe is all about adding the ingredients until it taste right 😊 Add water if it gets to dry, and a splash of olive oil is also great! Pour it over in a tight container and store it in the fridge or freeze it down to use for later ⚜️

TRIPLE MEXICAN CHOCOLATE CHUNK COOKIES (VEGAN).

This post was created in partnership with Scharffen Berger Chocolate Maker to celebrate National Chocolate Day! All opinions are my own.

I’m a total Halloween failure. I nailed it as a kid: Pippy Longstockings (with the red hair, I was a shoe-in), a punk rocker (replete with spray-on neon hair color), disco Dorothy, and the list goes on. At some point, I think during college, though, Halloween started to feel like a stressful contest to see who could creatively rig the sexiest slash most ironic alas most ironically sexy outfit. Anxiety! I was neither interested in being the sexiest nor the most ironic person on campus (well, maybe, secretly). And so, gradually, I stopped doing Halloween.

The last time I dressed up, I found myself walking around the beach town of Paia (on my home island of Maui) in tears, stalking my ex-boyfriend as he cuddled with some girl dressed like a gypsy. DRAMA. I decided to swear off Halloween for good.

But every now and then, I see people taking costumes seriously, and I get a twinge of dress-up desire. My friend Suzanne and her boyfriend Henderson went to a Halloween party as wife-and-husband artist team Lee Krasner and Jackson Pollock, and I felt a renewed tingle of interest. If I could dress up as a favorite artist, or writer, or, um, Beyoncé (?!?! what), perhaps I could be sold.
