The one food I can usually always rely on having around when I travel is bananas. Hotels, grocery stores, and even convenience stores usually sell bananas. They are also cheap-perfect for the college student’s budget. I always grab one or two more bananas before I leave the cafeteria, so I have a nice little pile in my room for snacks or for making new recipes.
Here’s why you should eat more bananas:
- Rich in potassium, bananas help the body’s circulatory system deliver oxygen to the brain. Perfect for when you have a big exam to study for!
- Helps maintain a regular heartbeat and a proper balance of water in the body.
- The perfect form of quick-energy. It even has it’s own packaging!
- It also contains tryptophan to help relax you and lift your spirits. We all get stressed at college, eat a banana.

I have a new “college cookie” recipe that uses bananas. My roommate and I have gone through about 5 batches of cookies so far. Hopefully I can get the recipe written down by next week and take a few photos.
