4 Delightful Dorm Snacks


Now that I’m in college and don’t have the luxury of a kitchen, it’s hard to keep eating healthy. All of my foods have to be kept at room temperature, so a lot of people resort to granola bars and chips for snack food. Personally, I need food with a lot of energy and good ingredients so I can stay alert and study. If I start eating processed, packaged food I fall into a general slump. This is what I keep in my teeny tiny pantry. (Everything is from trader joes)

Kind bar- best granola bar in my opinion. Gluten free & all natural nuts and dried fruits. They come in tons of different flavors. I like cranberry or dark chocolate sea salt when I have a sweet tooth.

Fruit bar- Chia is the best energy ever! Back home I would have cranberry juice and chia seeds all the time, but I can’t do that without a fridge. This fruit bar is basically fruit, flax, chia, and lemon juice.

Apples- Apples are basically the only fruit that don’t need to be refrigerated, don’t go bad easily, and don’t require a knife to cut them. These gala apples come in a bag of about 6 or 8.

Powerberries: I need to munch on these dried berries covered in dark chocolate to get me through my psych text book.
