College is a fun and enriching time for a lot of kids, but it can also be a challenging time, especially when it comes to staying healthy. There’s a reason the famed “freshman 15” is more than a myth, coming from someone who experienced those extra 15 or so pounds herself. For many students, it’s their first time being completely responsible for their meals, while at the same time living on a tight budget and not having access to their own kitchen or cooking tools. That’s a lot of challenges at one time! With the busy and irregular schedules that many college students have, who has time to search out healthy food, right? WRONG. Eating healthy isn’t just about spending all your free time at Whole Foods (nor is it for most of us non-college students!). It’s about a mindset just as much as it is about the action of putting food into your mouth.
