11 Protein-Filled Foods College Students Need

By Jenna Stangland, MS, RD, LDN - Guest Blogger
Whether it’s a grab-and-go option between your morning courses or fuel for a late night study session, having the right foods available can make a huge impact on energy levels, brain function and ability to stay focused on your studies.

Now, college can easily turn into four years of “froyo” between meals and pizza orders at 9 pm. But you don’t have to be limited to those options and you would feel a lot better going out for intramural broomball with a little more variety (and added nutrients) in your diet. Plus, your mom would probably appreciate you having some other greens besides the lettuce in a greasy taco and the green candy you eat afterwards. It’s important to grab a snack that combines a carbohydrate with a protein to give you energy and help you feel satisfied for a couple more hours.

In no specific order, here are 11-healthy-but-still-taste-good-easy-to-pack-dietitian-approved-dorm-room-certified-and-fit-in-the-mini-fridge foods:

  1.  Guacamole
  2. Greek yogurt
  3. Sugar snap peas
  4. Salsa
  5. Almonds
  6. String Cheese
  7. Eggs
  8.  Nut butter
  9. Tuna
  10. Apples
  11. Hummus
