Here at GenTwenty, we know what its like to live life on the go. We also know what it’s like to be broke, live off of a dining plan and/or have a small (or limited access to a) kitchen. This is why we have compiled a list of easy (and of course, healthy) meals for you that can be made with minimal ingredients and equipment, but that also support your healthy lifestyle and budget. Bon appétit!
