Hi Beauties! Let’s talk about the dreaded Freshman 15…

Here is a grocery list for college students [ that have no refrigerator access ] who feel trapped into eating cafeteria food, late-night pizza + ranch dressing, and/or mac n’ cheese at 3 am:

+ Pirate’s Booty [ best kind: the lunch pack bags for kids aka the Sponge Bob kind ]
+ Cuties Clementines 
+ Cashews + dried organic Turkish apricots 
+ Almond butter packets [ I like putting these on bananas/apples/pears ]
+ Apple chips
+ Smart Food popcorn clusters 
+ Veggie or sweet potato chips [ I like this brand ]
+ Ezekiel cereal [ mix this with Rice Milk- which doesn’t have to be refrigerated ]
+ Wasabi peas
+ 1/2 of a Lara bar
+ Laughing Cow light cheese wedges

Just because you’re actively making an effort to eat healthy, doesn’t mean portion control shouldn’t still be demonstrated. Tips for portion control:

+ Never, ever eat out of bag/box- pour it in a small bowl [ think a miso soup-sized bowl ]
+ Buy small glass wear, bowls, plates, wine glasses, etc. There’s no reason to eat out of a swimming pool-sized bowl.
+ Portion examples: nuts = a handful, fruit = 2 tangerines, chips/popcorn/pretzels = miso soup-sized bowl

Stock up your dorm room or kitchen ASAP- there’s no reason to not have quick, low-cal snacks laying around for when you’re in a pinch!

Oh, and say buh-bye to soda- it’s a disgusting, horrible chemical & causes bloat.

    LOVE these suggestions! I think that deep down we know we shouldn’t be pigging out on pizza and whatnot, but oh, the temptations of college!

    Is almond butter healthier for you than peanut butter is? I am a huge peanut butter fan but have contemplated switching over to almond butter for a little while now. I want the healthier option!

    ahhh, pizza + ranch dressing was my favorite back in college. I would probably gain 5lbs in one sitting if I attempted to eat it now lol. Thanks for the post, Ezekiel cereal sounds really good, I can’t wait to give it a try!

    Found your blog through Julie Ann Art – I’m way too old for the Freshman 15, but I’ve managed to pack on the PhD Dissertation 20 – totally going out with this shopping list tomorrow, hopefully it will help combat my might writing munchies.

    really a great post, I wish I had these food ideas when I was in school. Thankfully, many we used with our kids growing up

    I think it’s important to note that dried fruit (like the apricots and apples) should probably be unsulfured – but this is a great list!
