COLLEGE GIRL: Meals You Can Make In A Dorm Room

Stop spending a fortune on cafeteria food. Stop gaining weight from all the fast food restaurants you drive through late at night. Stop missing your mom’s home cooked meals.

It’s time to take control of your sad dorm room life (complete with microwave…maybe a blender) and start cooking like the strong woman you are. I’ve compiled several tasty meals you can make from your dorm room—yeah, they’re that easy to make! No more hassle and wasted money. Get cooking!

1. Cake Batter Overnight Oats: It’s no secret that we like Cake Batter flavored food, but these overnight oats are another story altogether. We don’t like them—we love them. There’s no cooking involved. Throw the ingredients in a bowl, whip it up, then stick it in your mini-fridge. Find the recipe here!


2. Creamy Cucumber Salad: This healthy and delicious meal requires no stove, microwave, or oven, which makes it perfect for dorm room cooking! Check out the recipe here. (via Natasha’s Kitchen)
