Dorm Room Dish

By Jenna Grasso, Staff Writer

For the most part, the average college student wakes up 10 minutes before their class starts. Then the student takes a granola bar and goes on their way without actually eating a sufficient breakfast to help them get through the day. Although this dish is very simple and self-explanatory, it is a reminder that all college students need to have a breakfast in order to get their day started right.

Oatmeal is something that not many people enjoy, but is one of the best foods to eat in the morning. Besides being quick and easy, this breakfast will soon become addicting and you will want to eat it every morning.

The first step is to buy a package of oatmeal; they come in all different flavors so feel free to choose your favorite. You must add water to the oatmeal and then put the oatmeal in the microwave. The specified time will be on the packet. You can add cinnamon for taste.

Another great way to make this meal more fulfilling is to add fruit such as blueberries, apples, bananas or even orange slices. Although this meal may seem extremely simple and something you can make on your own without this recipe, most students won't because they simply forget.

Let this be your reminder to get up 10 minutes earlier and make yourself a fulfilling breakfast.
