In Eating Healthy in College: Part 1, I discussed some techniques to eating healthy with limited time, space, and money. I showed you some ideas of foods to stock your pantry, fridge and freezer with. Now, I will offer some meal ideas using the foods from that first post.
- Whole Wheat Breakfast Bagel or Toast
- Peanut butter toast with a “Hearty Berry Smoothie”
- Cinnamon oatmeal or hot rice cereal with fruit and nuts
- Pancakes with fruit and yogurt. Use the mix suggested in the previous post, or make my Whole Wheat Pancake recipe.
- Breakfast Burritos– Make the whole recipe and store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge to be warmed for breakfast through out the week.
- Toasted Whole Wheat English Muffins topped with red bell pepper eggs and/or mashed avocados with a tomato slab.
- Cold cereal with nuts and fruit
- Grilled avocado and “Hearty Red Pepper Hummus” Panini
