Eating healthy may seem impossible during your college years, but having a few healthy snacks at hand is always a good idea. Here are five healthy snacks that you can keep in your dorm without worrying they’ll go bad.
Keeping fresh fruits in your dorm is a tricky business unless you’re going to eat them right away. Luckily, you can always rely on dried fruits to up your fiber content and they often have a pretty high iron content.
From almonds and walnuts to cashews and pistachios, all types of nuts come with a long list of healthy properties, and they’re a great healthy snack—as long as you eat them in moderation.
Trail mix is another healthy snack that includes nuts, but you can also benefit from other ingredients that it has in store – including dried fruits, dark chocolate, and more.
Whenever you feel like eating a candy bar, opt for dark chocolate instead because it’s not loaded with sugar and it’s packed with antioxidants.
Protein bars are another great alternative to sugar-packed candy bars, but it’s important to carefully inspect their labels and opt for a bar with the highest amount of protein and the lowest amount of refined sugars.
