Default With school comes poor eating choices...

So college is finally back in session, and I have a lunch break between my final two classes. I have more than enough time to go out to eat, but not enough time to go home and grab something to eat, so I guess that comes with the question what the **** can I bring to school to eat for lunch? I'm 90% sure there are no microwaves that I'm aware of so leftovers are pretty much not an option (unless of course I find out otherwise). I need something that can most likely survive without a refrigerator/with only an ice pack and in the car (I'm so not lugging around a lunch box, let's be real, that's not cool especially when you're the 25 yr old ancient lady). So yeah. Halp.
You don't have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.

When I was at university I would pack a lot of smaller snacks that I could eat through out the day like fruits, cut up vegetables, nuts, crackers & cheese. You could also pack sandwiches, salads, cold pasta salads. I always liked looking up recipes online to keep my lunches interesting

Maybe you could set some sort of compromise? Majority of my food last week consisted of fast food that was not prepared at home. I just had to choose to order healthier selections or break down the portions into two or three meals.

Otherwise, when I pack food, like Rated said, I'd pack multiple small snacks just to munch on throughout the day. I'm one of those who when counting, I feel so restricted that I typically am never "full" so, I just use the time to tell me that I can eat one of my snacks (usually every couple of hours or so).

Depending on where you go, often time if you ask, they may have a commuters lounge, and often that has lockers, a refridgerator, and a microwave.... ours even has a coffee pot... so maybe ask one of the administrative offices, or if you have a campus life office, you could check that out.

There is nothing wrong with carrying a lunch pack. I often have very long lectures (3+ hours) that hit around dinner time which are followed by club meetings I run. I also have diabetes, so I guess carrying a lunchpack and preventing a low is better than seeming like "an adult". When I bought my pack I opted to purchase a child's lunch box because it was compact and cute. I find it easy to strap it to my backpack or even to toss into my purse (I say purse, but lets be honest, it is more like a tote bag ).

Either way, this is what works for me. If you know you are going to be on campus for a while, and are going to be hungry but don't want to pack a lunch, try searching for healthy options around your campus.
