Sick of eating cereal and ramen for lunch and dinner? Want to spend less money eating out and finally start cooking for yourself? Put down that frozen pizza, because HC’s Health Editor, Sammie Levin, is here to share her daily eats so you can get ideas for healthy, satisfying meals that are easy enough for any time-strapped collegiette to make. After you read Collegiette Eats, your taste buds, wallet and waistline will thank you.

Breakfast

I wanted to make pancakes yesterday morning for breakfast on my day off from classes, but I ended up having an appointment in the morning and didn't have time thanks to pressing snooze one too many times. So instead, I had a piece of toast topped with banana, almond butter, cinnamon and honey. This is by far my favorite on-the-go breakfast; it never fails to satisfy. 

Lunch 

For lunch, I had leftover spaghetti squash from the other night. Blessed be leftovers. Just one squash made two heaping bowls of "spaghetti"(and it's okay to go big; one cup of spaghetti squash only has about 30 calories, compared to about 220 per cup for regular spaghetti), so I got two hearty meals out of just one squash. I prepraed it the same way as last time, but used kale instead of spinach. 

Dinner 

For dinner, I got a big chopped salad from a cafe on campus. I find a lot of salads to be kind of boring and unsatisfying, but when I get a big salad full of a bunch of my favorite foods, it's heaven. In this salad, I got avocado, roasted butternut squash, cherry tomatoes, edamame, garbanzo beans and chopped hard-boiled egg with an herb vinaigrette. So good, and I was full for the rest of the night. 

Now it's back to classes and reality-always the rudest awakening after a four-day weekend. At least there are only three more days until it's the weekend again?
