Time Magazine’s Anti-Food Snob Diet

Author: Kelley Filice Jensen

When I was in college, I existed on pork and beans served over rice.  I loved it, and I didn’t care who thought it was gross or inedible.  It was fast, cheap, filled me up, required no cooking (I didn’t know how), didn’t spoil, didn’t require refrigeration and lasted all year in the cupboards.   I wasn’t the only one with a cringe worthy favorite meal.  Most students had a “go to” fast, cheap and easy meal that hit the spot, even if it lacked culinary charm:  canned potatoes or ANY other canned vegetable with salsa on top, canned corn, frozen peas, tuna, peanut butter, and mustard.  Everyone seemed to go crazy with salsa and mustard.  The local Safeway would run out of both when they went on sale and the entire campus would stock up.   College age kids and health insurance, thoughts for getting them off parent’s plan.
