As colleges and universities finalize if and how students will be returning to campus, we all can agree it will be different this fall.

Whether your school hasn’t made drastic changes or you are just wanting to err on the side of caution, we’ve complied a list of recipes for you to try this upcoming school season, regardless of your diet or budget.
Thinking back on the food I consumed in my college days, it was not the pinnacle of health, at all! From eating uncooked ramen with the seasoning sprinkled on (by choice), Valveeta Shells & Cheese, and my all time favorite – sandwiches. Fruits and vegetables? Yea didn’t know those too well.
