6 Meals to crank out that won’t kill you 🤞🏼🤞🏼

As a student, our days are filled with lectures, socializing, and questioningyourlifechoices, I mean late-night study sessions. One thing often falls by the wayside – food. But who says you need to live on just instant noodles? Here are some no-fuss meal ideas that won’t break the bank or your spirit. And maybe one jazzed up noodle recipe. 

1.Overnight Oats:

Start your day right with a filling and nutritious breakfast. Overnight oats are a student’s best friend. Simply mix rolled oats with your choice of milk (dairy or plant-based), add a sweetener like honey or maple syrup, and top it off with fruits, nuts, or seeds. Let it sit in the fridge overnight, and you’ll wake up to a tasty and energy-packed meal.

2.One-Pot Pasta: 

When you’re short on time and energy, one-pot pasta dishes are a lifesaver. Cook until the pasta is al dente. Ditch the water, then throw in diced tomatoes, veggies, and your choice of protein (like chicken, sausage, or tofu) into a single pot. Season with herbs, garlic, and a dash of olive oil. And voila, you’ve got a complete meal that’s both delicious and easy to clean up.

3.Veggie Stir-Fry

Stir-fries are quick, customizable, and a great way to use up leftover vegetables. Heat a pan with a bit of oil, toss in your choice of veggies (bell peppers, broccoli, carrots, and snap peas work well), add a protein source (tofu, chicken, or shrimp), and stir in a simple sauce made from soy sauce, garlic, and ginger. Serve over rice or noodles for a satisfying meal.

4. Loaded Baked Potatoes

Baked potatoes are inexpensive and incredibly versatile. Microwave or bake your potato until it’s tender, then top it with your favorite ingredients. Some popular options include sour cream, grated cheese, chives, bacon bits, and even leftover chili. It’s a comfort meal that won’t empty your wallet.

5. Wraps and Burritos

Wraps and burritos are perfect for students on the go. Fill tortillas with cooked rice, beans, grilled chicken, or sautéed veggies. Add your favorite sauces, cheese, and greens, then wrap it all up for a delicious handheld meal. They’re customizable and easy to prepare in batches for busy days.

6. “Gourmet” Ramen

We know that instant noodle night is inevitable, but here’s an easy way to spruce it up. Prepare your favorite instant ramen according to package instructions. Add some cooked protein (I like a poached egg), a handful of fresh green onions, and a dash of chili sauce for extra kick. It’s a simple way to turn basic ramen into a tasty treat!

There you go – that’s all I’ve got on the food front. Tag us in your masterpieces/disasters, the best one gets a prize (I made that up but I’ll see what I can do)! See you back here next week, after I think of anything to write about.
