Safe and Healthy Dorm Room Snacks
It’s nice to have something to snack on when you’re back in your dorm or your little apartment, and it can be a good way to get more nutrition. That is as long as you choose snacks that are good for you. Of course, you may need to consider your space. If your dorm fridge is full (or if you don’t have one) then you’ll need to stock up on handy snacks that keep at room temperature.
You may be tempted to buy candy, cups of ramen noodles, bags of chips, and things that can sit on your shelf for a long time. The problem is that many of these snacks aren’t good for you – they’re high in excess fats, added sugars and calories. And not all that nutritious.
Try these snacks instead:
- Nuts and seeds will keep at room temperature for a few days after you open the container.
- Rice cakes keep well and are low in calories. Try some flavored rice cakes or add a little nut butter, which also keeps well at room temperature.
- Dried fruits like raisins, craisins, dried apricots, and other dehydrated fruits can be kept at room temperature. They lose some nutritional value compared to their fresh counterparts—but they won’t go bad and attract fruit flies.
- Popcorn is a whole grain snack. Air-popped is best, but regular popcorn is good too (hold the extra butter).
And on that note, you can keep some fresh fruit around as long as the skins or peels are intact—bananas, apples, oranges, and pears can all be kept at room temperature for a few days. But eat them up before they go bad.
