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!
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
