How to eat healthy in college

Everyone says that eating healthy in college is hard. Well, I’m here to say that it isn’t if you are determined to find the healthy food. Every college cafeteria has a stir fry station or a salad bar, go for those types of foods with high protein and good carbs.

If you choose the stir fry station go for the brown rice instead of the white rice, take extra vegetables and less of the sodium filled sauce. Try eating as much meat as you can, if there’s chicken available that day take it instead of the slice of pizza next to it. I know it’s easier to take un-healthy food, and sometimes you want comfort food instead of salad or chicken and rice. However, you know you’ll feel better physically and mentally if you go for the salad. So why not just go for the salad? Eating healthy consistently is a habit you have to make and sometimes it takes a long time, it won’t happen over night.

In order to choose to make that habit, you have to really want it. If you don’t truly want to make a difference and eat healthy for your health then you will never be consistent and it will never be a habit. Give your body the right fuel it needs to function to its highest potential by choosing the healthiest options available in school.

Sometimes there aren’t many healthy options, so you choose the lesser of the two evils. You just have to be mindful of your decisions, that’s truly the first step in eating healthy in general. Avoid the “freshman 20” by eating high protein and good carbs, meaning a lot of white meat and vegetables.
