Eating well in college just takes a little planning, perseverance, and penny-pinching along the way, but why not use your phone to create a little slice of foodie heaven on campus? We use it for everything else, right?
1. Rockin Ramen
We all know ramen is a college student staple. It’s quick, cheap, and easy but not always the best tasting or healthiest option out there. Luckily for us, the Rockin Ramen app is the go-to resource for all things ramen. With tons of doctored ramen recipes, you can dress up your microwave meal up by making dishes like vegetable primavera—or, if you’re feeling fancy, you can even try your hand at pepperoni ramen pizza.
2. Recipes by Ingredients
Ever have plenty of food but no idea what to make with it? Well, the Recipes by Ingredients app has got you covered. Rather than having to research your own recipes, this app lets you plug in ingredients so you can see what you can make with what you’ve got. Besides saving time and money, the app also lets you filter for allergies and foods you don’t like!
Moocho is for when you don’t have any food left in the kitchen or any money left in the bank. The app notifies you of deals and promotions at local restaurants and grocery stores. However, there are more benefits to Moocho than just discount food. The app also functions on a reward system. When you take advantage of a deal you get a certain number of “mooches” which you can then redeem for small prizes like coupons or bigger prizes like a hoodie or a mini fridge.
Tired of ordering pizza every Friday? Grubhub is a staple for late night snacking from your favorite restaurants. This app lets you order delivery from participating eateries, so you can treat yourself to a little more than extra cheese. And the best part is you don’t even have to leave your apartment.
Tapingo is definitely a timesaver when it comes to food. This app lets you order your food ahead of time, so you can skip the line and go straight to lunch. Tapingo can also schedule everything from your morning coffee order to an evening burger run—and it notifies you of local daily deals as well!
