Healthy Dorm Snack Ideas | No Equipment + Minimal Ingredients

September 13, 2015

A round-up of healthy dorm room snack ideas that don’t require any equipment and can be made with 5 ingredients of less. Perfect for any health-conscious college student with limited space and budget!

While I am well out of my college years, that doesn’t mean I don’t remember them! It’s so weird to think about now that for four years of your life you’re eating cafeteria food or takeout plus some packaged snacks if you stocked up. If you’re lucky you had a mini-fridge in your room and a microwave but beyond that… options were limited.

Living in a dorm was not my favorite. There was a communal kitchen but as a foodie, I wanted to make crazy creations and the space (and available appliances!) didn’t always allow that. SO I learned how to make quick and healthy snacks. If you’re in college and sick of eating cereal and granola bars, this round-up is for you! I’m sharing full recipes and then snack ideas that I can’t really consider recipes… like adult ants on a log. Enjoy!

-cucumber
-avocado
-tamari (soy sauce if not gluten-free)

Stick with me on this one. Looks kind of weird but it’s so delicious! It reminds me of cheap, vegetarian sushi. Slice a cucumber, top with sliced avocado and add a few drops of tamari to each cucumber round.

-banana
-peanut butter (or other nut butter)
-chocolate chips (I use Enjoy Life mini chips)

Mmm a healthy sweet snack or dessert. Without slicing all the way through the banana, cut a slit in the top. Spoon a little nut butter in the slit and sprinkle chocolate chips on top. This snack doesn’t have to be pretty… just make sure you get banana, nut butter and chocolate in each bite. 🙂
