No More Mac and Cheese for College Students

The majority of college students do not have a clue how to cook. We're about to show you how easy it really is.

Believe me when I tell you that you definitely do not want to eat macaroni & cheese and Raman noodles every night. This is terrible for your body. Beside, cooking does not have to be difficult and complex. All you have to have are the right recipes and an imaginative heart.

There are recipe books that were made especially for college students who have no time and no cooking skills. Consider purchasing Starving Student's Cookbook, Cooking Outside the Pizza Box, The Healthy College Cookbook, or another college cook book. You'll certainly be glad you did.

For some people, recipes just are not their thing. Do not fret! When dinner time rolls around just grab a bunch of stuff that go well together and chuck them in a pot or frying pan. Try chicken, rice, and steamed carrots. Also try ranch style beans, corn, hominy, garbonzo beans, (leave the juices for a stew) ground beef, tomatoes, and diced green chili. Add a bit of salt & pepper and throw some cheese on top. Experiment all you want.

Other simple meals: spaghetti, chicken Alfredo, chicken Caesar salad, Stone soup (throw anything you want in it), hamburgers, macaroni tuna salad, three bean salad, and anything in a crockpot.

An additional piece of advice: absolutely do not skip breakfast! Cereal, fruit, yogurt, and oatmeal make quick and simple breakfasts. Or try pancakes, muffins and biscuits. If you do not have time to make them from scratch, buy a mix! Skipping breakfast is hard on your metabolism. Avoid it as much as possible. If you're really in a hurry to take a granola bar or banana, just get anything in your stomach.
