Healthy in College
College students have a busy and
stressful lifestyle, and
trying to eat healthy can be difficult. This is especially true because most college students are experiencing life on their own for the first time and
may not have many ideas about what kinds of
food to buy, or even how to cook it if they did. With demand
ing coursework and
late nights studying, it is extremely important that students get the nutrients they need in order to be at full mental capacity. Improve your college eating
habits by not only educating yourself about nutrition, but also by learning how to cook.
Need a science credit? Take a nutrition course! A nutrition course can teach you a lot about healthy eating
from everything to how to correctly read an ingredients label to what vitamins your body needs to function properly. The more you know about your body and
how nutrition affects it, the more health conscious decisions you will make about your food. Also it helps to do a little campus research. Do not wait until you are starving to grab a cand
y bar at the campus convenience store. Find out which restaurants and
cafeterias on campus provide the healthiest food choices, that way when you are rushing in-between classes you will know exactly where to take your lunch break.
