We all have those days: your alarm clock goes off, giving you barely enough time to get ready for your first class, let alone enough time to make something to eat that will actually keep you satisfied until your break between classes. But whipping up something quick before class doesn't have to be time-consuming or difficult, and it certainly doesn't have to be expensive.

Spoiler alert: The Mt. Washington Whole Foods now accepts Evergreen dollars, and the 365 Brand is insanely affordable. So skip the granola bars you bought from Iggy's Market and try out these five-minute recipes with ingredients you can buy straight from your meal plan.
