Eating Healthy in College

I know our health is one of the most important things that we need to take care of, but sometimes life just gets in the way. Sometimes we're so busy with papers, assignments, studying for exams, and work that eating healthy doesn't even cross our minds. Although those are good excuses, they are not reasons and we should try as much as possible to eat healthy while at school and at home. Take a look at the tips below and try to implement them into your eating habits.

Make an Effort to Find Healthy Food 
If you're outside it can be a challenge to find healthy food because fatty food is almost on every block! There are however some healthy options to choose from, but we have to make a bit of an effort to find them. Maybe you'll have to walk a couple more blocks or spend an extra two dollars, but really it's worth it.

If you don't want to spend money, then there is nothing better than paper bagging your lunch. Believe me this option saves a great deal of time and money.

Ask Around
When at school don't be afraid to ask around. Ask your friends for recommendations on good places to eat around your school. Go into places and ask any questions you might have about the items on the menu. Just don't give in to fatty foods easily; make an effort to find something healthy. You can most likely find a salad (skip the dressing) or something similar.

Watch What You Eat At Home
-->I know that when we're at home we just want to take a break from everything and eat whatever is available or order out. However, that's simply not going to cut it. If we want to really improve our health, we have to start cooking at home, order out less, and eat out less as well. So skip the T.V. dinners and make something that is both healthy and fulfilling.
Snack Time 
If you're not truly hungry and just want a small snack, get a piece of fruit.

Keep in mind that your health is important, thus make an effort to change your eating habits. Also, don't forget to drink milk on a regular basis to keep your bones healthy!
