Okay, so you’re sick of the same food that Salmo offers, are on a limited meal plan or maybe you just want to have healthy snacks in the dorm room. We got you covered!
Our personal favorite: Overnight oats
1/2 cup old fashioned oats (or your favorite kind)
3/4 cup unsweetened ripple milk or any other plant-based milk.
1 tbsp chia seeds
1/2 tbsp flaxseed
1/2 scoop protein powder
Make these the night before and it’s a perfect fast breakfast that will keep you fueled for your busy schedule. We love ripple plant-based milk, as there is more protein in it than almond milk!
Other breakfast options:
Kashi Protein Cereal
Apples and organic unsweetened peanut butter
Rice cakes and peanut butter
Protein Bars; Quest, RX Bars, One Protein Bar or any others you may like!
Spice up your rice cakes for the perfect light lunch! Our recommendations:
Rice cake with hummus, hard-boiled egg, and carrots on the side
Rice cake with avocado and tomato
Rice cake with peanut butter, cinnamon, and banana
Other lunch options:
Fruit, cheese, and nuts
To-go salads from Roto Café
Invest in a Nutri Bullet or any other blender to make easy smoothies before class or after a workout.
Our personal favorite:
1 scoop protein powder of choice
1 tsp all-natural peanut butter
3/4 cup spinach
1 tsp chia seeds/flaxseeds.
Ice and plant-based milk
This is a little more intricate and we definitely don’t think it will happen all the time in your small dorm room or suite, but it happens – sometimes you miss dinner because of studying, work or just can’t find the time to go before 7:30 PM.
In the case of this happening, we got you covered! It’s important to be aware of not being able to go to the dining hall that night, so you can plan to take some food the day before.
Chicken and Sweet Potato
Whenever you see Salmo having grilled chicken, take a piece home in a container or get some from the salad bar. Then buy sweet potatoes from the grocery store (they stay fresh for a while) and put the sweet potato in the microwave and you have yourself a healthy dinner. Put a little spinach on the side!
Get a healthy wrap from Nick’s!
Nick’s makes a better wrap than Salmo in our opinion! We love spinach or tomato wraps with grilled chicken.
Now, everyone’s favorite: Snacks!
Rice cakes and all-natural unsweetened peanut butter
Apples and cheese
Carrots and hummus
We hope some of these ideas help you make healthy (and sometimes more yummy) decisions throughout the school year!
