How to Eat Healthy in the Dorms

I caught an article the other day about how to eat healthy as a college student, and some of the recommendations the author suggested were somewhat unrealistic or just not actually even healthy. Sooo I decided I definitely needed to write a post about it because I had major struggles with the eating situation when I was in the dorms, but I did figure out how to survive. I started having major health problems during my last quarter living in my dorm room and was put on a restricted diet during that time, which made it even more difficult to find things to…

For example, last week was insanely busy for me because it consisted entirely of prepping for my family’s Holiday Soiree! Back in the day, my parents threw an annual Christmas party during the holidays and invited all of our friends and family. It was always one of my favorite days of the year growing up because it was like a huge reunion for everyone I loved most, and I got to see people I didn’t normally get to spend time with.…
