Last week I had the opportunity to give a little presentation for the ladies of CHAARG, a group of amazing women at Ohio State. I told them about myself and about how when I went to college the first time, we had to live on campus all 4 years.
Oats in a smoothie– Add cooked oatmeal or uncooked oats to your smoothies for some extra bulk and fiber. Nut butter– Can be made in minutes with minimal ingredients and customized to your taste preferences with different nuts and mix-ins. Hard boiled Eggs- In the microwave: Bring water to boil, add eggs, cook on low power or ? power for 8 minutes, let stand a few minutes more.
Microwave sweet potato- Poke a sweet potato with a fork or knife all over, microwave for 5-6 minutes, top with nut butter, or beans and veggies and enjoy for lunch. Use your favorite nut and experiment with mix-ins like honey, cinnamon, raisins, cocoa powder, etc. Start with a basic recipe and make it your own with mix-ins like roasted red peppers, cooked sweet potato, garlic, cayenne pepper, etc. Add the chickpeas, reserved liquid, juice from the lemon, garlic and tahini to a food processor and process until smooth.


Place the dates and raisins in the food processor and process until they are well-combined and resemble a paste. Wow, this would have been SO useful to me — those girls are lucky to have had your presentation! They pretty much gave me free reign, so I spent some time really thinking about what I wanted to talk to them about. I wanted to cover the basics of healthy eating, give them lots of ideas and inspiration, and show them that what a wide variety of food you can prepare, even if you’re living in a dorm room.
Choose your favorite mix-ins, slice into bars or squares and store in an airtight container or individually wrap with plastic wrap and store in the fridge! On her blog, she shares simple, healthy recipes, nutrition tips, workouts and snapshots of her life.
I also kind of wish our fridge and dorm room was filled with more than easy mac, juice boxes and cheez-its. I figured this would appeal to the masses because if these things can be made in a dorm room, with minimal equipment and a mini-fridge, then they can definitely be made in homes and apartments with even more space and equipment. We rented a room in the union on campus and spent about an hour and a half chatting and whipping up some tasty snacks!


Add your favorite spices (try curry powder or cayenne pepper) and some chopped veggies (like onions and peppers) to bulk it up! Earlier in the week, I sent over a list of some ingredients I would need them to pick up, and on the day of the presentation, I packed up a few of the ingredients I already had on hand (like tahini and brown rice syrup) and showed the girls how to make 4 easy snacks. Then again, my metabolism was COMPLETELY different then than it is now ?? But at least now I’m eating healthier! I totally wish I would have had that in college–especially the years I was living on campus. I just WISH I had thought about making about making some of these snacks when I lived on campus, instead of living on cereal and easy mac for 3 years, or that I had thought to stock my mini fridge with something besides party supplies. Great advice for those currently living in dorms, or even if you aren’t and are new to cooking!
