Microfridge Meals

Cooking in college can be hard.  If you’re not lucky enough to live in a suite with a kitchen, and are restrained to your microfridge (a small fridge, freezer, and microwave) it can be even harder.  Luckily, there are some easy meals that you can make either in your microwave, or just in the fridge!

Chia pudding

Chia pudding is an easy—and super filling—thing to make either for breakfast or a snack.  You can top it with anything you like, and it doesn’t require much preparation time at all.


Oatmeal is one of my favorite things to eat for breakfast.  I add a little milk when I microwave it, and usually top it with frozen blueberries, honey, and almond slivers, or slices of banana and peanut butter.

Cookie in a mug

Everyone loves a good warm chocolate chip cookie. Luckily, it’s really easy to make in the microwave with just a few ingredients.  Also, you’ll only have one, so you don’t have to worry about eating too many!

Macaroni and cheese

Macaroni and cheese is one of my favorite meals, and I was really excited when my roommate told me that you could make it from scratch in the microwave!


There are other places to get muffins on campus than just the dining hall.  You can make them in the microwave! This delicious muffin is healthy and really easy to make, and the recipe comes from one of my favorite fitness blogs!

Instead of a popsicle, try a banana-sicle! Freeze a banana, dip it in melted chocolate, (which you can melt in your microwave) and coat it in your favorite topping!
