How can I have a balanced, nutritious diet in my hostel life?

I believe that there is no need to run away from carbohydrates unless they come from junk food or unless you have a big weight gain issue. If you exercise regularly, you can keep your tongue and tummy happy. Student Hostel Food Menu


Poha and Upma are eaten quite often in my hometown. So I keep packets of MTR ready to eat Poha and Upma. All you have to do is add warm water to the mix.

You don’t need to be an expert to make a salad. Keep some vegetables in small quantities with you. There are plenty of easy recipes on the internet.


Soak pulses in water for about 20 hours until they sprout. Add tomato, cucumber, chat masala, onion, and chili, and enjoy a sprout salad. Take hardly 10 minutes. Buy small onions and tomatoes so that you don’t end up wasting them.


You can repeat the above recipe with leafy vegetables like Methi (fenugreek), palak (spinach), cabbage, etc. Add green peas or beans if you like. Instead of having aerated soft drinks, buy a lemon and make lemonade. (6–7 minutes) If you have a kettle, you can boil the sweet potato, eggs, etc. milk (prefer not to have toned milk. It does not taste like milk) with cornflakes and fruits.


Hostel life comes with disastrous problems like excessive hair fall due to lack of nutrition. If you find Aamla in the market then get some. Eat it for your hair and vitamin C. There are other such nutritious fruits or vegetables available on the market. How Do Enjoy Hostel

For e.g. Carrots, Radishes, Beetroot. Eat them raw or make a quick tasty salad to remind yourself that you do have taste buds in that tongue.

Make sure that I make something for myself. It’s because over a period of time messy food becomes extremely boring. The food I cook is not super tasty but I feel glad that it is made in a hygienic way and is nutritious. It takes around 15 minutes maximum to make this stuff. But it adds taste to my life.
