Dorm-room snacks are best when they don't take up much space, don't require a lot of prep, and can be eaten on the fly! Read on for my top picks and tips... and by the way, these snacks ROCK even if you're not in college!
Fresh Fruit: Fuji Apples
You really can't go wrong with any fresh fruit, but the standout star in this arena is the Fuji apple. It pairs well with reduced-fat peanut butter, low-fat or light caramel dip and The Laughing Cow Light cheese wedges. Portable, crisp, sweet and requires no refrigeration. (BTW, I eat a Fuji daily....)
Each medium apple has 95 calories, <0.5g fat, 25g carbs, 4.5g fiber, 0.5g protein and a PointsPlus® value of 0.
Snack Bars: Double Chocolate Chunk Quest Bars
I love all the Quest Bars, and this new flavor may be the BEST ONE yet! With just 160 calories (not to mention packed with hunger-squashing fiber and protein), this bar should always be in your bag, ready for whenever you need a midday pick-me-up!
Each bar has 160 calories, 6g fat, 25g carbs, 16g fiber, 20g protein and a PointsPlus value of 5.
Nuts: Blue Diamond Almonds 100 Calorie Packs
Nuts are fantastic snacks, but the trick is to have them already portioned out. (They're way too easy to overeat!) Enter Blue Diamond 100 Calorie Packs. They take the guesswork out of serving sizes so you can focus on your studies (or anything else other than how many nuts you're eating!).
Each pack has 100 calories, 9g fat, 3g carbs, 2g fiber, 4g protein and a PointsPlus value of 3.
Tuna: StarKist Tuna Creations
I love these flavor-packed pouches. Now in FIVE flavors, including new Ranch and classic Sweet & Spicy. Eat them right out of the pouch or enjoy over rice cakes — such an easy way to get some protein in your day. No fridge required... SCORE!
Each 2.6-oz. pouch has 80 - 110 calories, 0.5 - 4g fat, 1.5 - 4g carbs, 0 - 1g fiber, 14 - 19g protein and a PointsPlus value of 2 - 3.
Jerky: Butterball Turkey Nuggets Made With Real Apples
Jerky is a great on-the-go protein snack. And these fruit-infused turkey bites are truly unique! Stash a few packs in your room to help you out during those all-nighters.
Each 1-oz. serving has 80 calories, 3g fat, 5g carbs, 0g fiber, 8g protein, and a PointsPlus value of 2.
Lucky enough to have a mini fridge in your room? Stock it with 6-oz. containers of fat-free yogurt (Greek and regular), light string cheese, low-sodium turkey breast slices and baby carrots.
For a quick fix that can be nuked, stick with 100-calorie bags of 94% fat-free microwave popcorn and microwaveable containers of low-calorie soup. Crunchy cravings and comfort-food cravings are covered!

Snickers Cake Mug

3 tbsp. moist-style devil’s food cake mix

When it's cold outside, there's nothing better than a warm bowl of soup to heat you up from the inside. These recipes are guilt-free and SO delicious....
Caramelized French Onion Soup
Rich broth, toasty bread, gooey cheese.... Get your spoon ready!
2 slices light bread
2 tsp. light whipped butter or light buttery spread
2 cups thinly sliced sweet onion
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 tsp. chopped garlic
4 cups reduced-sodium beef broth
1/4 tsp. ground thyme
4 slices reduced-fat provolone cheese
Lightly toast bread. Cut each slice into 4 squares. Bring a large pot sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Add butter, and let it coat the bottom of the pot. Add onion, salt, and cayenne pepper. Cook and stir until slightly softened, about 3 minutes. Reduce heat to medium low. Stirring frequently to ensure onion doesn't burn, cook for 10 minutes. Add garlic and continue to cook, stirring frequently, until onion has browned and caramelized, 5 - 10 minutes. Carefully add broth to the pot, and raise heat to medium high. Add thyme, and cook and stir until hot, about 5 minutes. Once ready to serve, evenly distribute onion-broth mixture into four microwave-safe bowls, about 1 cup each. Top each with two squares of toasted bread, followed by a cheese slice. Microwave until cheese is hot and begins to bubble, about 2 minutes. Enjoy!
MAKES 4 SERVINGS
HG Alternative: Instead of microwaving your soup, preheat oven to broil. Assemble soup in four mid-sized oven-safe bowls. Broil until cheese is hot and begins to bubble, about 2 minutes.

Add all remaining ingredients except bacon, and thoroughly stir. Cover and cook on high for 3 - 4 hours or on low for 7 - 8 hours, until chicken is cooked through. Remove chicken and place in a large bowl. Shred with two forks -- one to hold the chicken in place and the other to scrape across and shred it. Stir shredded chicken into the stew in the slow cooker. Cook bacon until crispy, either in a skillet over medium heat or on a microwave-safe plate in the microwave. (See package for cook time.) Chop or crumble bacon, and sprinkle over each serving!

Navigating the supermarket aisles can be tricky. Here are my top tips to help you shop smart and stock your kitchen for success...
Don't shop hungry. Sure, this is a no-brainer, but it's THE most important piece of advice to keep in mind before you venture into a supermarket. Eat a satisfying snack (like light string cheese and a Fuji apple) before you head out to the store. This way your untamed appetite won't do the buying for you!
Stick to the list. Make a list of what you need before you head out. On it should be essentials for smart meals and snacks... Really think about what you need for breakfast, lunch, dinner and beyond. Then stick to that list. Don't be swayed by impulse purchases.
Avoid trigger foods. Anything you can't stop eating once you start is a trigger food. Get to know your food weaknesses, and don't put them in your cart. If you know you'll be tempted to overdo it on potato chips (even the baked ones!), it's better to keep them out of your house.
Count your samples, or skip 'em. Some stores offer up free bite-sized samples. If you partake, keep track of those small bites... they add up!
Stock up on foods that are diet AND budget friendly. Hitting the freezer aisle for fruits and veggies can save you money... and that stuff's generally just as nutritious as fresh produce. And instead of pre-portioned single-serve snacks, DIY with a value-sized bag and re-sealable baggies or containers. Just make sure to do it as soon as you open the package!
