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 demanding 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 on
ly 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 con
s 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 candy bar at the campus con
venience 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.
