Welcome to the first chapter of the Dorm Survival guide. In this chapter we will discuss how to make tasty dishes with just your microwave!
Before we begin, I do want to take a moment to talk about the importance of eating healthy in college. Your first semester will be one full of new responsibilities, new classes and overall new stresses. Eating right (and being physically active, where applicable) can really help you overcome the physical and mental side effects of these stresses, especially as they relate to your immune system and your energy levels. Even simple things, like switching soda pop for tea (Black tea has the most caffeine, just FYI) can make drastic improvements to your health. It's a lot easier to monitor your nutrition when you prepare your own food (plus it's a lot easier on your wallet than eating on campus) so I highly recommend weekly trips to the supermarket if you are able. Now if you aren't able to make these weekly trips; don't freak out. You're in your first semester of college, you shouldn't be masters of time management. Make time for what you think is most important and do that instead. Just remember, this thread is here for you if you find yourself constantly battling illnesses and/or constantly in a slump. Most of all, don't be afraid to ask your Resident Assistant for advice- It's what they're there for!
Here is a link I found with a few recipes I've tried and others that I would love to!
If anyone has any additions/questions please send them! I will be updating the list above whenever something I've seen pops into my head
