As a college student, there's a lot of late nights, early mornings, and little time to waste. Going from lecture to lecture, I used to often crave a quick snack and head to the nearest vending machine in between classes. Even after a meal, I would find myself going out to get dessert. Once I realized how much money I was spending on snacks and desserts alone and all the junk I was consuming, I decided to start preparing treats from my dorm. All it takes is 5 minutes out of my day to fix something to satisfy my sweet tooth while also making sure that I'm maintaining a healthy diet. One thing I did notice about choosing healthy alternatives to munch on is that I have more energy and don't feel bad after I'm finished.
