Eat at Home
Eating your meals at home will make a big difference in your waistline and your wallet! Eating out at fast food restaurants might seem harmless, but even one burger can set you back from your heath goals. If you absolutely must eat fast food, stick to grilled chicken or completely plain hamburgers. By eating at home instead, you can control all the ingredients that go into your meal. You’ll know exactly how many calories you’re downing, and it’s even cheaper than ordering off of the value menu!
Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth
A lot of people eventually end up indulging on sweets if they’ve been starving themselves on a diet. Rather than going cold-turkey on those cookies and cakes, you need to satisfy your sweet tooth regularly in healthy ways. Keep low-fat pudding or dark chocolate handy for dessert and moments of weakness. It’s even better if these sweets are pre-portioned, so that it’s harder to eat more than one serving at a time.
Drink More Water
Drinking water instead of pop, juice, or beer does wonders for your diet. It not only keeps you hydrated, but it also allows the body to do a number of helpful things. Drinking more water:
- Makes you feel more full
- Improves digestion
- Decreases the amount of water held in the body (water weight)
Turn hard-boiled eggs into deviled eggs.
Peel the eggs, take the yolks out, mix with mayo, mustard, relish, and salt and pepper. Put back in the eggs. Throw some salad-bar bacon bits on that business. BLACK MAGIC.
Soft-serve ice cream, meet cereal bar.
This particular high-low combo is olive oil (it’s really good on ice cream, trust) and Rice Krispies. Could also imagine Cocoa Puffs doing something very special here.
Make boring baked potatoes awesome by twice-“baking” them in the microwave.
Mash up the insides with a fork, mix in cheese and anything else you like from the salad bar (scallions, bacon bits, etc.), and microwave for a minute to help everything meld.
Collect ingredients to make your own trail mix.
Chocolate and nuts from the ice cream toppings, dried fruit and sunflower seeds from the salad bar, plus whatever cereal makes your heart sing.
Bring a ziplock bag to the dining hall and take it with you for snacking between classes (or in them).
Steam your own veggies in the microwave.
Instead of dealing with whatever limp, gray vegetal matter is awaiting you in a steam tray, cook raw veggies from the salad bar (broccoli, carrots, peppers, etc) by microwaving them in a bowl with a little water until they’re crunchy-tender. Then you can dress them with olive oil, salt, and maybe a little lemon from the drinks station (if you’re feeling frisky).
If there’s chili, layer it with lettuce, tortilla chips, cheese, tomatoes, etc., to make taco salad.
Microwave a toasted bagel with sauce from the pasta line and cheese from the salad bar. Pizza bagel!
Mix peanut butter, soy sauce, and Sriracha to make Thai-style sauce for chicken.
Guaranteed to perk up even the sorriest industrial chicken chunks.Via 24/7 Bebenta Sa'yo
Any stoner can tell you that smoking marijuana makes you really hungry. Marijuana enhances the senses, so pretty much everything tastes amazing. The problem lies with quantity versus quality, since you can’t afford to down $20 worth of food every time you get high. Stock up on these cheap munchies now, and you’ll thank yourself later.
First on the list is a staple of drunks, stoners, and college students everywhere. Taco Bell is the epitome of cheap and tasty fast food. Head on through the drive thru and grab a Taco Party Pack for the best deal.
If you’re craving pizza, Domino’s is a value that’s hard to beat. Even though Domino’s isn’t exactly the highest quality pizza on the market, it will taste heavenly when you’re high. This affordable pizza place usually offers coupons for cheap prices on medium and large pizzas, and sometimes will even throw in extra items like brownies or cheesy bread for an extra dollar.
Mac and Cheese
Anyone who says they don’t want mac and cheese when they’re baked is either lactose intolerant or a liar. Any type of pasta makes for a good munchie, but mac and cheese is a crowd favorite. Always have a supply of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese or Velveeta Shells and Cheese handy, because stoners love to devour this stuff.
Sour Patch Kids
Any candy will do if you’ve got the munchies, but none will satisfy your craving like a big bag of Sour Patch Kids. The gummy texture and the sour flavor combine to create a trippy and tasty eating experience. You’ll enjoy eating them even more when you know that they’re cheap. A massive five pound bag costs under $20. Junk food enthusiasts rejoice.
After smoking some marijuana, satisfy your munchies by popping open a box of cereal and going to town. Classics like Honey Nut Cheerios and Captain Crunch are some of the best cereals to chow down on, but pretty much any sugary cereal will do the job. A box of Cheerios shouldn’t be more than a few bucks, but if you’re really looking for a bargain, you can always pick up one of those gigantic bags of generic cereal.
