10 Recipes Every College Student Should Know how to Make

By Lauren Scott, Arizona Farm Bureau Intern

Whether you are a college student living at home, living on your own or living on campus, it can be very hard to eat healthy. After a full day of classes, many students rush directly to work and pick up their favorite greasy fast food on the way. When you do have some free time, you probably don’t want to spend it trying to make some fancy meal, but microwaved left-over’s aren’t making the cut either.


It can get very hard to keep the balance between easy-to-make and healthy. I know snacks have become a big part of my life as a college student, and I can imagine how many others are substituting a bag of potato chips for lunch, but in all truth, that’s not in the least bit healthy, and you know it.

So if you are struggling to find that balance between something that’s easy to make, will fill you up, and is also healthy, look no further! Here is a list of the 10 recipes every college student should know how to make.


  1. Grilled Cheese Sandwich
  2. Chicken Quesadilla
  3. Mac and Cheese in a Mug
  4. Perfectly Fried Eggs
  5. Chicken Breasts
  6. Salad
  7. Pancakes
  8. Cake in a Mug
  9. Tacos in a Bag
  10. Oatmeal


Of the ten, the ingredients are minimal, under an hour to make and each one could be made in a dorm room with only a microwave or hot plate.
