What I Pack In A Day

Haley HansenComment

Don't you just love those days when you're on campus allllllllll day and late into the night? Don't you love them even more when you forget to bring snacks/meals along with you? 

I never let myself leave the house without at least a snack for later on in the day, and if I know that I'll be gone for a while, I pack something more substantial. Here are some of my go-to packed meals and snacks for long days on campus!

  1. Lunch - baked potato wedges/fries and tempeh - I bake the potato wedges either the night before or in the morning before I leave, and cook the tempeh in thin slices in a nonstick pan without oil until each side gets a nice brown color to it. Then just pack them both in a tupperware container and I'm ready to go! I love bringing homemade ketchup, hummus, or sometimes even salsa to dip them in, too. 
  2. Snacks - fruit fruit fruit! Haha, "fruit snacks"? Apples and grapes are my absolute favorite choices - I love how hydrating and sweet they are. Just in case I need a little extra protein, I bring a granola of some sort, usually Larabars. 
  3. Dinner - rice, veggies, and beans. That's my go-to meal, my friends. While it may sound boring, adding something as simple as tahini dressing, hummus, avocado, soy sauce, etc. makes this packable dinner so good and so easy! I steam broccoli, carrots, and zucchini, open a can of beans, and scoop out some rice and BAM I'm all done. Oh, but don't forget to pack some flavorful sauce in a little tupperware container.
