When you’re juggling a busy schedule, healthy eating is often the first thing to fall to the wayside. And yet you know that a nourishing meal is one of the best ways to fuel your brain and power you through your hectic day. So what’s a busy, conflicted student like yourself supposed to do? Two words: microwave meals.
You know what else can go in a coffee mug besides your daily caffeine fix? Food. I don’t know if it’s just me, but I always seem to have about 800 mugs and only one bowl. These microwaveable mug meals are a real lifesaver for the dishwashing-averse. If oatmeal isn’t your thing, try a hearty and savory spinach and cheese omelet in a mug. Or how about some mug granola for an after-school pick-me-up? These recipes are so easy, soon you’ll be making all your meals in a mug.
If you haven’t discovered microwaved sweet potatoes yet, you’re in for a treat. Sweet potatoes are delicious all on their own, or you can dress them up with whatever toppings you have on hand. Use the Greek salad topping in this recipe as inspiration, or if you have a sweet tooth, try a combo of tahini, raisins, walnuts, and a drizzle of maple syrup.
Is your wallet feeling the effects of too much takeout? Then you’ll love these customizable cracker pizzas. Ready in just 20 seconds, they’ll satisfy your cravings while still providing a nourishing dose of veggies, protein, whole grains, and healthy fats.
Okay, so this one’s not exactly a meal, but it will help step up your #FancyCheeseNight game in the most unpretentious way possible. In as little as one minute, you can have ooey-gooey, melt-in-your mouth “baked” camembert. Perfect for a last-minute social gathering or a one-person party.
