The food you eat can have an impact on how your mind and body work.
So a basic knowledge of how to eat healthily will help you get the most out of your university experience and create healthy lifetime eating habits.
It is recommended to eat a diet rich in a variety of fruit and vegetables, include moderate amounts of low-fat dairy products, moderate amounts of lean meat and fish and other non-dairy protein sources and limited amounts of foods containing fat or sugars.
Your body needs at least eight glasses a day, and, if you exercise vigorously, you may need more. To remind yourself, carry a water bottle along to class and keep it handy during late night study sessions.
Meal Planning is key to successfully living on a budget. It can be easy to forget to eat well and fall back on takeaways and microwave meals when busy with university life. Preparing a healthy home-cooked meal across several days will mean your purchases are likely to be more economical with less wastage, saving you money.
Enjoy your food. Food is a lot more than nourishment for our bodies, so take the time to enjoy it, savor it and appreciate it.
