Well it has taken two years of dorm room living, but I think I have finally figured out what works best for me! I have decided to take you through my room to show you my food recommendations. Of course you can take or leave my options, however I hit a couple of key groups I suggest you all have on hand.
First off I am going to focus on breakfast foods! I have to admit breakfast has to be one of my favorite meals of the day. I love having breakfast for lunch and dinner sometimes too, I just love it so much! Unfortunately, with a meal plan and timing wise I dam not able to make it to breakfast every morning so I make sure I have healthy filling choices on hand for mornings.
You've got to have cereal! It's a must! Some mornings I just crave a cold bowl of cereal and milk (almond milk that is!),
Next, I like to have granola and Nature Valley bars on hand to put in yogurt. My current favorite granola is Cascadian Farms Oats and Honey. I like to mix them in Dannon Light and Fit yogurt. Keeps me full until lunch and this always hits the spot after a nice morning workout!
Yogurt is easily one of the main reasons I don't think I will ever become vegan! Some of my favorites include Dannon, Revive with the granola on top and the Chobani Flip Its. The Raspberry Dark Chocolate Chobani is like dessert to me! Revive is a newer discovery of mine and I am in love. Lots of protein so it's very filling. Also, I have my Silk Unsweetened Almond milk in the back, for my cereal. No need to waste the calories on sweetened milk when your cereal will sweeten it for you anyways.
With these foods in mind, I will also recommend getting bowls and spoons for your room. I am all for saving money and the environment, so do yourself, and our world, a favor and invest in a set of plates, bowls and utensils. And with yogurts a lot of times you will just eat out of the container, unless you want to add granola or more fruit, in that case I use a bowl.
That is all I have for breakfast foods for you all. Stay tuned for more dorm room food stocking tips!
