August 20, 2014

Here are some delicious yet healthy options for college snacks that will not only keep you fueled, but will leave you feeling good too!

Filled with natural sugars, vitamins, and antioxidants, fruit make a great start to the day as well as a great midnight snack for those late-nights.

Back to School! This is actually really strange for me since this is the first fall since I can remember that I haven’t gone back to school (graduation is weird). Maybe I am just one of the odd ones, but I was always extremely excited to go back to school no matter how great of a summer I had been having. I could barely sleep the night before my first day or my first class (you would think it was Christmas or something). I love going to new classes and meeting new people, I love meeting new teachers or professors, I love picking my seat and getting to buy new notebooks, and binders, and picking out my favorite pens (0.5 mm fine point if you’re curious). And that first day of class where you write down everything perfectly because you imagine that this year you’ll be more organized and neat with your notes and you’ll be on top of your game every single week (first week dreams obviously). Everything is all fun and games, and then you get your first student loan bill.
