Sometimes days here can drag. We all need a little pick up for that afternoon class. Here are some ideas of what to toss in a to-go cup when you’re making that snack to fuel you up for that 2:30 class. We know you’ll eat it before then, but at least it’s healthy enough and hey, your brain burns the most calories.
Ingredient Idea 1: Granola
Bowdoin has great homemade granola in the dining hall. Take advantage of this crunchy, wholesome snack by adding it to your trail mix.
Ingredient Idea 2: Banana Chips
Fruit can be messy. You have to deal with the peel and sticky juices, but dried fruit is safe for class!
#SpoonTip: Make your own homemade banana chips. Find the recipe here.
Ingredient Idea 3: Sunflower Seeds
Sunflower seeds are a great source of protein to keep you going longer. It doesn’t hurt that they taste great too.
Ingredient Idea 4: Craisins
If craisins aren’t for you, try raisins or dried apples from the C-Store.
Ingredient Idea 5: Goldfish
If you’re feeling salty…Goldfish are always a good call.
Ingredient Idea 6: Chex (from the Gluten Free Section)
Tucked away in the Gluten Free Section is the hidden gem of light and airy Gluten Free Chex cereal. A must for your trail mix and many other recipes.
Ingredient Idea 7: Chocolate Chips
#SpoonTip: Although our dining halls don’t have nuts readily available to us, adding your own mixed nuts assortment to your trail mix could be a good source of protein to balance out your delicious homemade sweet and salty mix.
