Eating Healthy For Students

For students, eating at college is an entire new ball game, with late night pizza delivery and food from buggies. Even though some of these quick and simple options taste great, they are probably not healthy for a student's body.

The food choices students make can affect whether or not they are able to remain awake during class and whether or not they will come down with  mononucleosis when it hits campus. The problem is not only about eating junk food, it's more  about not getting the proper proteins, carbs,  vitamins, and minerals that people need.

When it comes to defending against illnesses,  vitamins and minerals are very important. Just because they are important, isn't a reason for students to run out and stock up on vitamins and supplements. It's best for students and for everybody else to get their nutrition from food.

You can find vitamin C in many fruits, especially citrus fruits like oranges and mandarins, Vitamin A in milk and diary products, and vitamin E in  nuts, whole wheat products, and green leafy vegetables. This is the ideal way to get  nutrition, as your body relies on these vitamins for many reasons.

When you eat on campus, skip on the soda's and  go right to the juice machines. Explore the  different entrees available and go to the salad bar where there are fresh vegetables. You can also try putting some broccoli and cauliflower in the oven for steamed vegetables. There are always healthy cereals and plenty of fresh fruits available in dining halls as well.

Always remember that eating healthy isn't just about avoiding greasy foods. Eating healthy involves getting a balanced diet and getting the right nutrients and vitamins to keep your body in peak performance - or at least awake during  your classes.
