Just because you live in a hostel does not mean you cannot eat healthy. Eating well and eating healthy is a challenge for most of the students staying away from home during college, and while packed schedules, tight budgets and lack of time hold them back from investing time in cooking meals, it does not mean there is no way they can eat healthy. Allow us to show you how –
1. Opt for a healthy pizza
Instead of ordering in, why don’t you make one of your own? All you need is bread, cheese, and toppings of your choice! Works as a great option for cooking with leftover meals.
2. Snacking is allowed
With such hectic schedules, your brains and body need food. Instead of eating oily snacks from your favorite college hangout, carry a fruit in your bag!
3. Invest in breakfast
No time to eat food? It can’t get simpler than a bowl of milk and muesli/oats. Make sure you don’t skip out on the most important meal of the day if you wish to stay energized for the rest of the day.
4. Keep a food time-table
Set aside time and reminders for meals during your day. This way you will get into the habit of eating healthy, and on time.
5. Stock your dorm with health foods
Keep healthy food lying around your room. When you feel hungry, or are simply too tired to cook, or are simply bored, you’ll have only healthy options to choose from. Fruits and granola bars are the best bet.
6. Make protein a part of your diet
By eating protein, you tend to stay full for longer. This way you will avoid unhealthy snacking
7. Carry your water bottle
Just by having this around you all day, you will get into the habit of staying hydrated.
