Healthy Breakfasts to Make In Your Dorm Room

1) Oatmeal with almond butter and banana

On a cold or rainy morning nothing is better than a warm breakfast in bed without the hassle of walking to the dining hall. This breakfast is easy to make and keeps me full through my morning classes. Just pour the oats in a bowl, add water, and microwave. Make sure to find an oatmeal that is low in sugar; The sweet, maple, brown sugar or artificially flavored brands are tempting, but they are much less nutritious. Top it off with a spoonful of your favorite nut butter (almond for me) for added protein, and add a banana for some sweetness!




2) Greek yogurt with granola

I’m sure you’ve had this before but it’s all about the kind of yogurt you use. Most brands are filled with sugar and have little protein. I recommend the brand Siggi’s as a healthier option. Even the plain flavor topped with a low-in-sugar granola keeps me full ‘til lunch. If you need some extra sweetness, add some raspberries or blueberries on top!



3) Egg in toast

Who knew you could have this yummy and nutritious breakfast while only walking a few feet from your bed. Flatten the middle of the whole wheat toast with a fork. Crack an egg in the flattened area. Poke the yolk with your fork and microwave for 1 minute. If you’re feeling fancy, add avocado on top for even more deliciousness!



Good luck, and stay hungry!!!
