What are some good foods to eat for dorm room living college students?

I live in a dorm, so I only have a small fridge that I share with a roommate. So I don’t have a lot of space. But I do have cupboard space. I have no oven either. But I do have a microwave.

What are some good microwaveable or non microwaveable foods to eat besides Ramen or instant mac and cheese?

    Hot pockets, popcorn, yogurt, pudding, frozen foods that are microwavable (mini corn dogs, chicken nuggets, pot pies, etc)
    I live on popcorn. But, I managed to sneak a small toaster oven into my room and it works wonderfully for things that don’t cook so well in the microwave.

    Get a Foreman grill. You can make so much more with them like grilled cheese sandwiches. Also something you can make Tuna Helper in is nice. The Salvation Army is a good place to pick up kitchen stuff cheap.

    I’m still hooked on Tina’s Burritos with some GOYA Sasita Ancho sauce.

    Hot pockets… that reminds me of this video:

    Canned chili is nice to add into Mac &Cheese. You don’t have to worry about salt yet.

    Mountain House freeze dried meals is one good option.

    Brown 1 lb hamburger or ground turkey in your microwave. Drain. Add a can of Manwich sauce and serve on hamburger rolls. You can add some frozen, canned or fresh spinach to the sauce to make it healthier and it tastes pretty good too.

    Canned ham, that you purchase in the canned meat section, near the tuna. Open the can and just slice and heat up. Eat with microwaved baked potatoes, topped with sour cream. Buy a bagged salad.

    Instant oatmeal and cream of wheat are also good in the microwave, but make sure you have a big enough bowl because they tend to boil over.

    Of course, you can microwave hot dogs too, but now the health level of my ideas is deteriorating. 🙂 If you buy a hot pot you can more easily cook pasta, and that increases your options greatly.

    Im not sure of foods to eat with a microwave, im sure there are lots, but i cant think of any right now. i usually just use the microwave to heat things up.

    If you could though, I would buy a toaster oven. I make mini pizza bagels all the time, and you can use it for alot of things.

    For your cupboard, maybe you can put things that are in cans?
    im not sure…but being in a dorm is tough especially when there isnt alot of room…

    Buy things you like for sandwiches, whether it’s meat and cheese, pb & j or vegetarian. Salad goods and dressings. Cheese and crackers. Raw vegs and fruits, cottage cheese, yogurt.

    Couscous can be cooked in the micro and then you add olive oil, lemon juice and raw vegs to it for a good couscous salad. Same with pasta.

    Soups. Popcorn.

    Frozen veg’s can be warmed in a micro, and I believe that instant rice can be cooked in one (sorry, I don’t cook in a micro, just warm up).
    My son makes scrambled eggs in the micro.
    Albacore salad.
    Legumes (beans) in a can can be warmed up with herbs to make them taste better (like cumin, coriander, oregano, chili powder, maybe even chiles) to make beans and wrap them in a tortilla.
    Baked potatoes and bacon can be nuked.
    Raw fennel and citrus salad
    Black bean and corn with jalapeno and green onion to eat with chips or make burritos. Buy frozen or fresh corn and warm with beans. Add some cumin and garlic for flavor.
    Angel hair pasta will cook quickly in water that has been nuked to the boiling point. Top it with your favorite jarred marinara or pesto.

    I hope this is a good starter for you and that you will indeed find other things to feast upon.

    canned fruit

    chef boyardee

    nachos: shredded cheddar atop corn chips, nuke until cheese is melted, top w/ sour cream and picante sauce
