hummus sandwiches; thai salad; mushroom salad (from sweetgreen in Cambridge)

Throwback to this delicious, nourishing summer bowl 😄 : avocado pasta (added ½ of an avocado mashed with some lemon juice, finely diced red onion, parsley, pepper and pumpkin seeds), watercress sprouts, avocado, chickpeas, lime, kale, zucchini, home-grown tomatoes, and hummus I made (blend up 2 cups of chickpeas, 3 tbsp of tahini, 1 ½ tbsp of lemon juice and a pinch of salt in a blender and you can save yourself some serious $$$ 🙌 )

Vegan hummus pasta salad for dinner tonight! So quick and easy to make, but really substantial too. I love finding different uses for hummus- it’s not just for dipping carrot sticks in! 😉

I just cooked pasta and in a separate pan, steamed some veggies like broccoli, peppers and kale. In hindsight, some sweet corn would have been really nice in there too, but I forgot to put that in. Once everything was cooked, I stirred it all together. I made a big batch of this to refrigerate, so I can have it over the next few days.

For the dressing, I took a few generous scoops of hummus and thinned it out with a bit of water, then poured that all over the pasta salad.

I also sprinkled some smoked paprika over for a bit of a kick.
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

~ 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)

~ Small grilled and sliced chicken breast ($1.50), roasted veggies and brown rice ($.50)

~ ½ cup cottage cheese ($.50), hard boiled egg ($.25), slice of whole grain toast ($.25)

~ 2 slices of pizza (from frozen) ($1), ziplock of baby carrots ($.50), tbsp ranch dressing ($.25)

~ Frozen entree (Lean Cuisine, Hungry Man, etc.) ($2)

I have been struggling trying to budget for this upcoming school year, so I hope this helps out some other starving students (and everyone else!)
