Healthy Dorm Room Meals and Snacks

Whether your student is vegetarian or into all natural snacks, there are many options for them to have stashed in their dorm room for quick food options. In most dorms, access to cooking appliances is inconvenient so we know they will resort to quick, microwave-friendly meals. If we leave them with a lot of junk they will eat it, but if you leave them with healthier options, they will get hungry enough to eat them as well. I have done that trick in my own home and it has resulted in the boys actually liking foods they didn’t think they would.
Explore Cuisine has pastas and soups that are gluten-free, USDA Organic, vegan and Non-GMO verified. The lentils, beans and noodles are brought from the sustainable fields to you. Explore Cuisine Instant Soybean Noodle Soups are made just like your average noodle cup soup. What I like is that the noodles are packaged within the serving cup. These cups easily squish and when  noodles are exposed when lids tear or separate from the cup it can go stale. When ready to eat you peel off the lid, open the noodles and seasoning packets and empty back into the bowl before adding water and optional salt packet. It takes 3 minutes in the microwave.


One cup of Soybean Noodle Soup meals fill them with about 230 calories, 21 grams of protein and some calcium, vitamin C and iron. The protein is plant-based for a healthy meal. Fork included.
Another snack choice that is 100% natural and great for the olive lover are Gaea Greek Olive snacks. These olives come in a few varieties. The pitted green olives come flavored with: lemon & oregano, chili & black pepper, basil & lemon and then there are pitted kalamata olives. The olives are picked from the finest olive fields in Greece.
Gaea snack olives are the first olive snack in the world without preservatives. They are not floating in liquid and the bags are resealable. Visit to see all of their olive products from oils to dressings.
