For those of us stuck to full meal plans and eating every meal in a campus dining hall, it’s tricky to pick out the few healthy offerings from traditional greasy, shockingly high-calorie cafeteria standards. To ensure you don’t get tired of the salad bar within two weeks, email service Hungry Girl has created a great resource for collegiettes, a Back to School Guide.
You may know Hungry Girl from the 6 best-selling books founder Lisa Lillien has written, or from the Hungry Girl show on Food Network and the Cooking Channel. Their Back to School Guide is a great resource for anyone who needs a little inspiration when it comes to on-campus dining: they’ve got you covered from breakfast, lunch, and dinner, to healthy snacks and take-out choices. The guide includes easy ways to do breakfast right, tips for eating a healthy lunch and dinner in the dining hall, a guide to dining out, a roundup of easy meals, organized by the kind of kitchen appliances you have (or don’t), and a list of dorm room must-haves for healthy snacks to have close at hand.
