Eat veggies with a roasted twist
In case you didn’t know this already, I want to tell you a little secret. Veggies are super cheap and super healthy. Crazy right? You can get a bunch of vegetables at the supermarket and you won’t even spend 10 dollars. Now you must be asking yourself, ok they are cheap, but how can I vary the way I eat them? Easy! Roast them. Just get a bunch of veggies and place them on a tray and put that in the oven for 10 minutes or so. You can even get some potatoes and cut them in these little French fry shape and roast them and guess what? You are still heating healthy because none of these veggies are fried!
There are a lot more recipes out there for college students, you just have to get a little creative with them so that you can still manage to stay healthy and not spend any money in the process.
