Healthy Dorm Snack Ideas – No Fridge Required

You know,

I really don’t know how I’m going to survive in my dorm without a toaster.

Can’t toast bagels in the microwave you know. I mean, I’m sure the cafeteria has bagels and a toaster but still.

Not the same.

 

While I was mourning the sad reality of my toaster-less cubicle of a dorm in the fall, I decided to put my mind towards something more important.

Like snacks. Healthy snacks! Well mostly healthy. You’ll notice that I didn’t include things like bananas, apples, oranges, and etc. in the list (aka the healthiest options) and that is because I figure those are already pretty obvious snack choices. The goal here is to give you a few ideas to spice up your snackin’ life. And while they may not be as healthy as a piece of fruit, I did make a point to choose the healthiest prepackaged snacks I could find because they’re convenient and don’t take up any of that precious mini fridge. When choosing a prepackaged snack, make sure to pay attention to the ingredients list, sugar content, and additives.
