Food for Thought: daily meals of the rushed college student

Writing Challenge: February 19, 2018

Prompt: Write something inspired by what you ate today

It’s a rushed morning- an oatmeal breakfast-bar morning. My coffee machine, prepped the night before, brews while I brush my teeth. My pre-packed lunch and dinner sit in the fridge, ready to be grabbed and shoved into a bag. For lunch, humus with pita chips and vegetables. For dinner cheese tortellini with winter squash, marinara sauce, and mozzarella cheese. I threw some fruit snacks and an apple in my backpack for mid-day, ready to crash, snacks. I will be out of the house all day today: from 9:00am to 1:15am. I have must either bring all the food I will consume throughout the day with me or buy junk from the fast food joints that litter the valley. Trying to be healthy while lacking both time and money is a true challenge for the working college student.
