Tips & Tricks from a College Student about Food:
Freeze food that is about to go bad to save them for later use
Do you struggle finishing a whole loaf of bread before it gets moldy? Or a whole container of blueberries? When you buy a loaf of bread or blueberries, put ½ or ¼ of it in a ziplock or reusable bag and toss it in the freezer until you need it!
Items that will save well in the freezer
Berries, mangos, and pineapple
Meal prep if you have a busy week ahead of you
To avoid stopping at fast food on your way home
To fuel your body during stress and tests
To avoid spending money at the library, SUB, coffee shop, etc.
Look at the college friendly recipes blog to see how cheap it can be to meal prep!
Put together a grocery list before you goanddon’t go to the grocery store hungry
To avoid buying anything unnecessary
So you aren’t wandering around the store aimlessly
A few more useful tips
You don’t have to buy the whole bunch of bananas
If you know you’ll only want two for the week, just buy two!
But if you do, throw them in the freezer for use later
Frozen produce is a great alternative
Frozen fruits and veggies are just as nutrient dense
Good thing to turn to on the go
Good idea if the fresh will go bad before use
Don’t have to use the whole supply at once, thus easy to portion
Make sure what you buy will keep you satisfied!
Buy the items that will make you happy & full!
Buy some snacks you enjoy to avoid overeating at times
Buy the produce that you will actually eat, not what you hope you will want to eat
