Eating out is becoming less appetizing as we get a taste of the wrath of a real Chicago winter. Here are five ideas to heat up your dorm room this winter. All you need is a microwave.
Cranberry Ginger Instant Oatmeal from Nature’s Path: Great for a warm breakfast to start the day, with spicy ginger and cranberries. Ginger has been proven to be a strong antiviral food. Add dark, unpasteurized honey to sweeten and to help prevent throat and sinus infections.
Microwave Omelette with Pepper and Onions: Did you know you could cook an entire omelette in the microwave? This handy microwave omelette tool is easy to clean and easy to use for $3. Add peppers for vitamin C onions to boost your immunity and to help heal infections.
Chili: You can buy a can of chili just about anywhere. Spice it up with hot sauce and garlic for a kick of anti-viral nutrients. Just beware the chili breath.
Soup: Nothing beats fighting cold like chicken soup. Adding some ginger will help with most stomach ailments and congestion, as well as preventing flu and colds.
